Sriramacaritabdhiratna Of Nityananda Shastri
Sriramacaritabdhiratna Of Nityananda Shastri
Description

From the Jacket:

Composed by one of the foremost Sanskrit poets and scholars of the earlier part of the 20th Cen. Pandit Nityananda Shastri, the Mahakavya delineates the life story of Lord Rama which he conceives as the ocean, the Udadhi, in fourteen cantos, the figure corresponding to the number of the jewels, the ratnas come out of it when churned. The figure also is reminiscent of the number of years of exile of the Lord.

The Mahakavya is composed in the age-old Citrakavya style which had long become extinct requiring as it does high proficiency in grammar, vocabulary and syntax. Pandit Nityanand Shastri possessed all these in abundance. Coupled with these was his extra-ordinary mastery over prosody and rhetorics as exemplified by the use by him of rare metres and figures of speech.

The Mahakavya with its varied descriptions of natural phenomena and human emotions and the use only of certain letters or the avoidance of them going with certain situations shows him rare command over expression which also is noticeable in designing his composition in such a way that each initial letter of the stanzas leads to the appearance of the first canto of the Valmiki Ramayana which gives a summary of the Rama story.

For the proper appreciation of readers this work is presented herewith in English version by one of the leading lights in Sanskrit of the present times.

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 !
