The Buddha - His Nirvana and Mahaparinirvana
The Buddha - His Nirvana and Mahaparinirvana
Description
About the Book:

The book is a resultant of a fervid study of the life and cessation of the grand personality, Light of Asia, the Buddha who sanctified the Indian soil by the tred and trod of his holy feet. The authors elucidate in this book with percipience and authenticity the various life events of the Buddha and his great finale. The masterly treatment of the chapters like the life events of the Buddha and the evenings of the Buddha's career reflect the immaculate scholarship of the authors. The cogentre appraisal of the chapter on stone-page of Buddha's Nirvana and Mahaparinirvana is amazing. In fact the book is a running commentary of the life and dissolution of Buddha as gleaned through Pali and Sanskrit texts.

This splendid book remains an authoritative and entrancing work on the subject. No student of Buddhist religion, philosophy, art and architecture can afford to let slip this gainful work.

About the Author:

A Scholar of eminence, a distinguished archaeologist and a celebrated Indologist and art-historian Prof. Dr. K. Krishna Murthy, M. A., Ph.D., D.Litt., F.R.A.S. (London)., has devoted over three and a half decades of his life, his studies in pursuit of Indian Archaeology, Art, Architecture, Iconography, Buddhism and material culture of Ancient India. His unflinching love and adoration towards Buddhism resulted in the publication of several authoritative books on Buddhism. He authored over twenty five books and hundreds of research papers. He served the Archaeological survey of India for 34 years and distinguished himself as professor in History and Indian culture and Dean Faculty of Arts in Sri Sathya Institute of Higher Learning, Deemed university, Prashanthinilayam

Dr. K. Padmanabha, M.A., Ph.D., F.R.A.S.(London) W.A.C. (South East Asia) young and energetic scholar of Archaeology and Indology has specialized in subjects relating to art-history and Indian Buddhism. He took his M.A. in Ancient History and Archaeology in first class from Osmania University, Hyderabad and for his outstanding thesis "Life under Iloyasalas as Depicted in the Sculptures" The University of Mysore awarded him Ph.D. degree.

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

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.
