The Beautiful in Indian Arts
The Beautiful in Indian Arts
Description
About the Book:

This book presents a new and more comprehensive definition of the term 'beauty' in the light of the philosophical theory of individuation. According to this theory, beauty is a mark of success of an individuation of the feeling of affinity between the Sublime and the Particular. This affinity is realized in the practical activity of making something - i.e., in the artistic activity.

An attempt has been made by the authoress to interpret the major Indian Arts, viz., architecture and sculpture, painting, music and dance and literature on the basis of the concept of beauty developed by her. The approach is philosophical and not technical or historical.

About the Author:

Dr. (Mrs.) Shyamala Gupta, Ph.D. of Bombay University, formerly lecturer in philosophy in Ramnarain Ruia College, Bombay, is at present a senior lecturer in Kamala Nehru College (University of Delhi), New Delhi. Her field of specializing being Aesthetics, she worked on this subject as a research fellow in Indian Institute of Advanced Study, Simla, during 1966-67. She proposes to publish in soon her book "Aesthetics and the Sublime" which presents an entirely new approach to the problem of art and beauty.

Testimonials
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 !
