Description

About the Book:

Purna Kalasa or the Full Vase or Purna Ghata is deeply rooted in Indian culture and religious ceremony. It is a visible symbol of the most mysterious life-forces revealed as Creation, and is a popular decorative motif of beauty and auspiciousness. The author studies the Purna Kalasa in Vedic literature and the importance of its worship. He reflects on the motif as a symbol in the art of Sanchi, Mathura, Bharhut, Gandhara, Amaravati, Nagarjunikonda, Hampi, etc., be it Jaina, Buddhist or Brahmanical, and in the residential houses or shrines or stupas. Although he compares the motif in sculpture, he also studies it as a symbol in painting.

About the Author:

Dr. P.K. Agrawala is a well-known scholar of Indology working as a University Professor in the Department of Ancient Indian History, Culture & Archaeology of the Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi. His special field of investigation is Ancient Indian Art, Iconography and Religious thought.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
Andreas, Germany.
