Mysteries of Love: Maratha Miniatures of the Rasamanjari
Mysteries of Love: Maratha Miniatures of the Rasamanjari
Description
From the Jacket :

Rasamanjari is one of the most favourite and widely circulated Sanskrit works on the classification of nayikas and nayaks (literary heroines and heroes) according to their temperament and behaviour. It was composed in the first half of the 16th century by Bhanudatta of Mithila region. Due to its delicate and vivid delineation of the persons of these nayikas and nayaks, it has drawn the attention of the artists and painters all over India with the result that today we have illustrations of Rasamanjari in a number of schools of painting. The present album of Rasamanjari brings to light the beautiful illustrations of this wonderful work in the Maratha School of Art at the time of its full bloom during the second half of the 18th century.

The contents of the Rasamanjari continue to stir the mind and heart of the lovers, for providing the nectar to the soul. The Srigara rasa a poetic relish excels among other rasas and reigns supreme, as it plays with the sensational and sensuous mysteries of love, lovers and beloved. The love itself is a mystery which like the women is blessed with a miraculous powerful feeling. It heals all the souls and takes one to heavenly pleasures, which is also spiritual and divine, and hence immortal. Basically nayak and nayika are the natural causes of the irresistible rasa, srngara, depends as it is on them.

The Mysteries of Love unveils and reveals variously the thirst (of love) dissatisfaction (of sex), curiosity for extra material sex, lack of complementing each other in physical and emotional matter causing a variety of nayikas and nayaks as reflected in the Rasamanjari. The author must have experienced, watched, observed and contemplated a lot on the subject, apart from having a keen insight into the subject under the study. This Rasamanjari speaks these matter better.

The illustrator (unknown) tried his best to present the romantic text of the Rasamanjari through the visual forms. The art lovers would rather relish the attempt of revelation of these Mysteries of Love, being presented in this album of Maratha Miniatures of the Rasamanjari in a beautiful manner.

नमास्कार परदेस में रहने वाले भारतीयों को अपनी सभ्यता व संकृति से जुड़े रहने का माध्यम प्रदान करने हेतु, मैं आपका अभिनंदन करती हूँ| धन्यवाद
Ankita, USA
Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom
I am writing to relay my compliments of the excellent services provided by exoticindia. The books are in great condition! I was not expecting a speedy delivery. Will definitely return to order more books.
Dr. Jamuna, New Zealand
I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
