Rasakalika of Rudrabhatta
Description

Foreword

I have great pleasure in writing a Foreword to this critical edition of Rudrabhatta's Rasakalika, together with an English translation and studies, prepared by Dr. Kalpakam Ramaswami (now Mrs. Kalpakam Sankaranarayanan) under my direction and approved by the Madras University for the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy in 1972. I have a special attachment to it, since it was the first Ph. D. thesis prepared under my guidance.

Rudrabhatta's Rasakalika occupies an important place in Indian aesthetic studies, though it has not yet received due recognition from scholars. The present critical edition is also its editio princeps. The Rasakalika was used as a source book by vidyanatha for his Prataparudriya (quoting 44 passages from the Rasakalika). Mallinatha has quoted passages from it as authority in many places. Vasudeva quotes 6 verses from it in his commentary on Rajasekhara's Karpurmanjari. In the Rasaratna-kara of Salva, a sixteenth century Kannada work on Rasa, Rudrabhatta's Rasakalika is mentioned as a source book.

Rudrabhatta gives an excellent exposition of the theory of Rasa and the various problems connected with it, mainly following Dhananjaya's Dasarupaka and its commentary by Dhanika, Bhoja's Sarasvati-kanthabharana and Rudratalankara. Among his original contributions is the fourfold classification of Uddipanavibhava-the qualities of the hero or the heroine, the graceful actions like hela, kilikincita etc. their decorations and accidental factors. He describes in detail the types of heros and heroines, the srrigaranayika-s, vyabhicari-bhava-s, sancari-bhava-s the twelve stages in the development of love, etc. The problem of how tragic scenes give aesthetic pleasure is also discussed.

The critical edition is based on the four available manuscripts, and the external testimonia. Dr. Kalpakam has fixed the date of the work as the beginning of the 13th century A.D., proved that Vidyanatha and Mallinatha are influenced by the Rasakalika, and that the text we have is complete. A faithful English translation has been added. The sources of most of the illustrative verses have been traced. It is hoped that this critical edition of an important text will be welcomed by students of Indian aesthetics and literary criticism.

The Vasanta Press deserve warm appreciation for the excellent printing.

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.
