The Cultural Glory of Ancient India
The Cultural Glory of Ancient India
Description

From the Jacket

India has a millennia long glorious past. In mankind's history, it is unmistakably a rich chapter: splendid in expression and awe- inspiring in immensity. Recognized world-wide for the sublimity of its thought that transcends cosmic categories, the cultural glory of ancient India is well-manifest in its long intellectual traditions of Darsana, Dharma-sastras, Ayurveda, niti, Itihasa-Purana, Vyakarana and Kavyasastra. And these apart, it is seen in the heights it achieved in the realms of sculptural art, architecture, drama, poetry, music and even erotics.

Notwithstanding its vastly complex expressions, the book develops a sharply-chiselled cultural profile of ancient India- with spotlight on its creative genius, its intellectual traditions, and its landmark achievements. In projecting these distinguishing features of a great heritage, the Author an Indologist of international renown, has drawn on a bewildering mass of literary evidence: ranging from Vedic writings to Vastuvidya texts, from Arthasastra treatises to Alamkara Sastra works.

With wide-ranging bibliographic references and a comprehensive glossary of Sanskrit terms running over a hundred pages, the book will interest specialists and lay-readers alike.

I bought DVs supposed to receive 55 in the set instead got 48 and was in bad condition appears used and dusty. I contacted the seller to return the product and the gave 100% credit with apologies. I am very grateful because I had bought and will continue to buy products here and have never received defective product until now. I bought paintings saris..etc and always pleased with my purchase until now. But I want to say a public thank you to whom it may concern for giving me the credit. Thank you. Navieta.

I have always enjoyed browsing through the website. I was recently in south India, and was amazed to note that the bronze statues made in Kumbakonam and Thanjavur had similar pricing as Exotic India.
Heramba, USA
