Description
About the Book

The study of Nepalese art and monuments is still in its beginning. Recently a few painstaking works on Nepalese sculpture and iconography have appeared by such autho- rities like Dr. Stella Kram- risch, etc. The present mono- graph isin the same flux of research undertakings, and offers a minute and extensive study of one important aspect of Nepalese art, viz. the icons of Astral Divinities in Nepal, known from sculpture and literary texts. While tracing early traditions, the authors have usefully drawn compara- tive material from Indian sculpture and literature ; this justifyingly has to be done in a study like the present one that attempts at analysing the elements of Nepalese art and religion evolved through centuries with Hindu and Buddhistic traditions..

Ketil, Norway
Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma
Usha, USA
Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.
Mike, USA
I was very happy to find these great Hindu texts of the ancient times. Been a fan of both Mahabhratham and Ramayanam since I was a small boy. Now the whole family can enjoy these very important cultural texts at home.
