STUDIES IN THE KATHASARITSAGARA
STUDIES IN THE KATHASARITSAGARA
Description
About the Book :

The Kathasaritsagara has been classed with the tow great epics of India by world-renowned indologists and sanskritists. Since the Kathasaritsagara, a text of the 11th c. AD, is based on the Brhatkatha, a work of the 1st c. AD, there was a problem regarding the period of the Indian society depicted in it. The author has proved that the Kathasaritsagara depicts the society of early medieval India, that is, the post-Gupta and pre-Muslim period of Indian history. A rich field for the study of the socio-cultural history of India, the Kathasaritsagara has been thoroughly explored by the author.

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.
