Samskara (A Rite for a Dead Man)
Description
About The Book

A classic of modern Indian literature, Samskara is both a novel about ritual and religion and a contemporary reworking of ancient Brahmanical themes and myths. Probing multiple meanings of ‘Samskara’ rite of passage, ritual, preparation, transformation, as well as death rites this is an engrossing tale of a man whose personal transformation comes not through his learning and practice but through grace. With an essay by Susheela Punitha based on interviews with the author, this Oxford India Perennials edition bears testimony to Samskara’s enduring significance since its original publication in 1965 and translation in 1976.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
