About the Book

The aim of this volume is to underline the importance of Sanskrit and to show its relevence for the study of Indian Philosophy, Religion, Art, Literature, Linguistic, and History of Science and Medicine. A Number of like-minded scholars who are engaged in teaching Sanskrit at different universities of the USA, the United Kingdom and India, have contributed results of their research to enrich the volume.

The special 'feature of the volume is that each paper contained in it shows relavance of the study of Sanskrit. All the papers are written specifically of this volume.

Preface

The papers brought together in this volume were presented at a conference on Sanskrit and Contemporary Research in 1983, to coincide with the Indian Festive and Cultural Celebrations that were then taking place in New York. The conference was organized by the late Professor Gopal Bhattacharyya during his short tenure, towards the last years of his life, at State University of New York's College at New Paltz in New York. This volume is dedicated to the memory of Gopal Bhattacharyya; hence we feel it is proper to say something about the life and career of the scholar to whose efforts indeed this collection is owed.

Gopal Bhattacharyya was borne in 1915 in Bengal into a family of Sanskrit scholars. His undergraduate education was at Calcutta University, and later, in his more years, he went to Melbourne, Australia, to complete a Master of Education degree (1955-1962). But in 1948, following the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi, Mr Bhattacharyya joined the Gandhian Basic Training Scheme in Wardha, Madhya Pradesh. There he embraced the Gandhian model of teaching moral values and vocational training which he put into practice at a tribal school in Campaknagar, Tripura. Later he was to be the principal of the teachers' training college in Agartala, Tripura.

Drawn also to the kindred spiritual thoughts of Sri Aurobindo, Mr Bhattacharyya became active in the local Sri Aurobindo Centre, and he was a life-long member of the Sri Aurobindo Society. This interest took him, in 1969, to Matagiri, a community centre in upstate New York, devoted to furthering the ideals of Sri Aurobindo. There he had started to hold classes in Sanskrit; and shortly afterwards he took up a post at the College at New Paltz teaching Sanskrit and Indian philosophy. Mr Bhattacharyya retired from the college soon after the successful Sanskrit conference and moved to West Cultural Centre. He took ill and died there on June 6, 1985. And although, Mr Bhattacharyya had made plans to publish this collection the task remained unaccomplished.
