Hindu Scriptures
Description

About the Book:

Hindu Scriptures is a unique collection of Hindu texts spanning more than twenty centuries. An enlarged edition of R.C. Zaehner's anthology, with the addition of three fresh translations (including one work which appears for the first time in English), its broad range includes arcane hymns of the ancient Aryans, a manual of prescriptions governing every aspect of the daily life of the orthodox, and rich poetry that describes with heady sensuality the dalliance of Krsna and the cowherd women of Vraja on the nights of the autumn moon

About the Author:

DOMINIC GOODALL was educated at Ampleforth College and at Pembroke College, Oxford, where he read Sanskrit. After two years at the University of Hamburg (as a Hanseatic scholar of the Stiftung Freiherr von Stein) and doctoral studies at Wolfson College, Oxford, he is now attached to the Institute Francais de Pondichery in South India and is working with the manuscript collection there.

I’ve received the package 2 days ago. The painting is as beautiful as I whished! I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist. Namaste, Namaskara.
