Foreword

Five years ago a memorable function took place in Bangalore. It was the book release of SVASTI, Essays in Honour of Prof Hampa Nagarajaiah for his 75th Birthday, edited by Nalini Balbir. Thirty-three authors from India and abroad had contributed papers on a wide range of subjects.

Now, five years later, on the occasion of Professor Hampana's 80th birthday, another felicitation volume, Sanmati, with almost as many and also varied contributions from authors outside India has now appeared. The contributors have created a gift befitting a scholar with wide interests, broad knowledge and sparkling rhetorical and communi-cative skills. Moreover, Hampanaji's personal traits, his attentiveness, readiness to help and his hearty wit, are echoed in the immediate and joyful consent of the many scholars to join in felicitating him by contributing a paper.

Among the contributors are also four students who were members of an Indian sponsored excursion to Karnataka organized by Hampanaji. They were students of the Center for Jaina Studies at the then Indian Art History at the Freie Universitat Berlin. The articles are an appreciation of Professor Hampana's active support.

The great variety of topics of the papers in this volume made it difficult to order them in thematic groups of about equal number in each. They stretch from then to now, from the cosmos to suffixes, from temples to paintings, from Jinas to the jester, from logic to myths, using sources in Prakrit, Sanskrit, Hindi and Braj Bhasha. We have therefore listed the articles in the alphabetical order of the authors' names. But by way of an introduction to this rich collection the titles of the articles can be grouped according to their research areas. Almost all the articles are in the field of Jainism or closely related to it.

To begin with Linguistics and Philology: Willem Bollee draws attention to substantives in compounds which serve as enhancements: "Augmentative Formations with Nouns as Loan Suffixes in Sanskrit."

Herman Tieken offers a philological investigation into aspects of the compilation of the supposedly early Uttarajjhaya: "The Distribution of the Absolutive in -una(m) in Uttarajjhaya."

Jaina Cosmography with the depiction of the cosmic man and the movement of the soul is elaborated by Piotr Balcerowicz: "The body and the Cosmos in Jaina Mythology and Art."

Accra - Walking in Righteousness: One of the rules of conduct is reflected upon by Josef Bartosek: "Aparigraha".

Shin Fujinaga discusses unavoidable transgressions of mendicant rules and their expiation as laid down in Agama literature focussing on: "Another Aspect of Jain Mendicant Life in the Vyavaharasutra and its Commentaries."
