Description
About the Author:

Born in an orthodox Brahmana family of Bengal and educated traditionally in Varanasi, Dr. S.N. Ghoshal Sastri started his carrier as a teacher of a Sanskrit Institution and an editor of the Chaukhambha Sanskrit Series, Varanasi.

During the time, he had the privilege to sit under the feet of some celebrated scholars of the time; like Mm. Pramthantha Tarkabhusana, Mm. Balakrsna Misra and Mm. Gopinath Kaviraj.
He took active part in the '42 Movement and went underground as a suspect of the Chukaghat-case, Varanasi; that provided him a chance to learn English.

Acquitted of the alleged charge, he completed university education from B. H. U. and joined Visva-Bharati with an experience of a Sanskrit lecturer for 12 years in Jaunpur and Varanasi, U.P. He was entrusted with teaching & editing MSS. In the Dept. of Sanskrit, Pali & Prakrita. In addition to his normal duties, he extended cooperation to other departments, like Philosophy, Education and Ancient Indian History Culture & Archaeology.

As a veteran teacher and seasoned manuscriptologist, he edited two Urtexts on Indian Aesthetics of the Scholastic School as well as the Neo-Rasa-Scholastic School as well as the Neo-Rasa-School. He had the honour of compiling and publishing the Ist volume of the Descriptive Catalogues of Sanskrit MSS. Deposited in the Sanskrit MSS. Section, Vidya-Bhavana, Visva-Bharati.

Now, as an inmate of poet Tagore's hermitage, Santiniketan; he dovoted his life to present the country a complete work on Indian Aesthetics, ventilating its three major streams; Poetry, Arts and Music, extracting their fundamental principles of 'one-in-Two,' from the Yamala stream of the Tantra-Sastra.

Testimonials
I've just received the shawl and love it already!! Thank you so much,
Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
