The Sensuous in Art Reflection on Indian Aesthetics
The Sensuous in Art Reflection on Indian Aesthetics
Description
From the Jacket: Contrary to current aesthetic theory, the author does not see Indian art essentially on the lines of Indian mysticism, as brahmananda sahodara, twin of mystical experience. That the Indian artist experiences a mystical vision while creating art is an accident, while essentially his artistic activity thrives on extolling the sensuous experience. It arises by an imaginative participation with color, sound, touch, and smell and does not derives its value from being close to either a moral framework or mystical quintessence.

In the five chapers of the book Dr. Jhanji directs her attention largerly to drama and painting. The study is based on the text of Natyasastra, Kamasutra, Visnudharmottara, Silparatna and Citralaksana.

About the Author:

Rekha Jhanji is a professor in Department of Philosophy, Punjab University, Chandigarh. She has contributed many scholarly paper in field of aesthetics to various learned journals. Her publications include: Aesthetic Meaning: Some Recent Theories(1980) And Aesthetic Communication: the Indian Perspective (1985). Dr. Jhanji was a fellow at the Indian Institute of Advanced Study, Shimla for two years (1985-87).

Testimonials
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
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 !
