Description

From the Jacket:

The city be it Mohenjo daro the earliest or Chandigarh the latest has held Man in thrall from the time it came into existence. Its public edifices, private Mansions, Lofty shrines, renowned schools, famous festivals have attracted people from far and wide. The Indians of old Hindus, Buddhist and Jains were aware that the city is embryo of culture and civilization; for it provided the impetus to poets, dramatists, philosophers and artists to attain immortality through their creations. So they codified all their knowledge and experience in Town-planning and Architecture into treatise known as Manasara for the edification of posterity. He has devoted years of study and research to bring this vast, but almost forgotten, treasure house within easy reach of all. This book Hindu Architecture in India and Abroad is the sixth volume in his Manasara series. It brings out in no uncertain terms that indigenous ideas of design and techniques of construction alone have imparted the qualities unabating vigour and having beauty to the surviving ancient temples, which have withstood the onslaught of vandals, time and nature. The Swastika mansion described in the preface attests to the relevance of the principles enunciated in the Manasara notwithstanding popular notions to the contrary to modern conditions and needs.

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 !
