Banabhatta (Makers of Indian Literature)
Banabhatta (Makers of Indian Literature)
Description
About The Book:

Banabhatta is the celebrated author Kadambari and Harshacharita, masterpieces in Sanskrit literature. Though his supremacy as a grand stylist, as a master over the elaborate phrase and poetic image, has never been questioned, his habitual sublimity of style, his very forte, has been an impediment to a just appreciation of his works.

This monograph is a modest attempt to remove hindrances to the enjoyment of a great epic stylist, a sublime poet in prose, a visionary ranging his eye across climes and lives, a humanist with a profound message to mankind.

Though the book is mainly designed for the general reader scholar also may find it of refreshing interest.

About The Author:

Dr. K. Krishnamoorthy (b. 1923) has been head of the Post graduate Department of Studies in Sanskrit, Karnatak University, Dharwar, and has published, among others, first ever critical editions of Dhvanyaloka (1974) and Vakroktijivita (1976) with complete English translation, and Essay in Sanskrit Criticism, (2nd Edn. 1974), which was awarded Sethu Parvati Prize, Kerala University.

His other important publications are: Kalidasa (1972), The Dhvanyaloka and its Critics (1968) which was awarded Mysore University Golden Jublee Research Prize, and Studies in Sanskrit Aesthetics and Criticism (1976).

He has also translated over fifty classics of Sanskrit Poetics and Literature into Kanada which have won him the State Sahitya Academy Award. He has contributed over 300 article reviews in English and Kannada to learned journals.

Testimonials
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
