It details life in these various outposts of the Indian Ocean from precolonial renaissance period to the end of the 19th century.

on ayurvedic medicine comprising about one hundred ‘combinations’ (yoga), i.e. therapeutic formulas. Several of its manuscripts survive and the text was translated into Tibetan and Kuchean, signs of its popularity and wide spread.

 Contribution à l'étude d'Aiyanar-Sasta  Marguerite E. Adicéam Contribution à l'étude d'Aiyanar-Sasta   $19.49  $14.62  Buy Now 
Aiyan?r-??st?, a village deity or popular deity of South India, has many temples attributed to him in this region. One of his principal duties is to protect the land. Literary sources often describe him as a son of ?iva. The present publication, using all documentation pertaining to the deity assembled by the French Institute of Pondicherry (Sanskrit and Tamil texts both edited and in manuscript form as well as illustrations), successively studies the various names of the deity, his origins,... 
 Le Gitalamkara. L'ouvrage original de Bharata sur la musique  Le Gitalamkara. L'ouvrage original de Bharata sur la musique   $20.49  $15.37  Buy Now 
This a first translation and critical edition of the G?t?lam?k?ra, a reference work and the oldest known treatise on the theory of music and its codification in India, cited by such later treatises as the N?t?ya ??stra. The G?t?lam?k?ra enables us to reconstruct the evolution of music in India through an archaic and singular terminology that identifies r?ga as varn?a, prior to Greek and Muslim influences. The interest of the study is threefold: historical, linguistic and musicological. It is... 
 Mrgendragama. Section des rites et section du comportement. Avec la Vrtti de Bhattanarayanakantha  Hélène Brunner-Lachaux Mrgendragama. Section des rites et section du comportement. Avec la Vrtti de Bhattanarayanakantha   $38.49  $28.87  Buy Now 
The Mr?gendr?gama is a ?aiva treatise in Sanskrit of the ?aivasiddh?nta school of thought. It had a considerable following, and a commentary was written upon it in the 10th century A.D. by N?r?yan?akan?t?ha. It has been much cited by teachers of both dualist and non-dualist schools. It is one of the rare ?gamas to have retained all four parts of which these texts are often supposed to be constituted: section on doctrine (vidy? or jñ?nap?da), on rites (kriy?p?da), on yoga and on discipline or... 
 Saivagamaparibhasamañjari de Vedajñana. Le florilège de la doctrine sivaïte  Bruno Dagens Saivagamaparibhasamañjari de Vedajñana. Le florilège de la doctrine sivaïte   $43.99  $32.99  Buy Now 
The saivagamaparibhasamanjari is a Sanskrit anthology of saiva texts compiled in the 16th c. by a famous theologian from Cidambaram (Tamil Nadu). It intends to deal with all the facets of the saivasiddhanta school, but surprisingly, the matter is distributed in ten chapters which are not topic-wise but number-wise; moreover it never contains any indication on the origin of quotations which form the bulk of its text. The publication herein described comprises a critical edition as well as a...

The Cartilha em Tamoul is also of interest because it represents the first translation of European texts into... 
 Garcin de Tassy. Biographie et étude critique de ses oeuvres  Sayida Surriya Hussain Garcin de Tassy. Biographie et étude critique de ses oeuvres   $22.49  $16.87  Buy Now 
The School of Living Oriental languages was founded in Paris in 1795. Garcin de Tassy held the chair of Hindustani there, which was created in 1828. Many important works are attributed to this great scholar, who was equally well-versed in Arabic, Persian and Turkish. He was interested primarily in the Muslim religion and the Urdu language. The present volume first gives a historical introduction to Indian studies in Europe in the 18th-19th centuries A.D. It then traces the career of this... 
 Jugements du tribunal de la Chaudrie de Pondichéry 1766-1817  Jean-Claude Bonnan Jugements du tribunal de la Chaudrie de Pondichéry 1766-1817   $73.99  $55.49  Buy Now

It dealt with personal law, trade, civil and criminal proceedings, immovable property, criminal law and public regulations. Its manner of settling disputes exemplifies both an ancient tradition of jurisprudence and also the contacts between Indian law and European law. Drawing on manuscript material, this book reproduces the most interesting judgements passed during the... 
 La Haritasamhita - Texte médical sanskrit  Alix Raison La Haritasamhita - Texte médical sanskrit   $32.49  $24.37  Buy Now 
The Haritasamhita is attributed to Harita, one of the disciples of the sage atreya Punarvasu. It is also known by the names of Atrisamhita and atreyasamhita. The text known to us, differs from the one cited in the ancient period by the commentators of the major ayurvedic texts. It has survived in the form of a large number of manuscripts and has been edited several times, proof of the interest that it has generated. This text, known from Gujarat to Bengal, is presented here with a translation...

 Le Mahabhasya de Patañjali avec le Pradipa de Kaiyata et l'Uddyota de Nagesa - Les 5 volumes  Pierre-Sylvain Filliozat Le Mahabhasya de Patañjali avec le Pradipa de Kaiyata et l'Uddyota de Nagesa - Les 5 volumes   $158.49  $118.87  Buy Now 
The Mahabhasya of Patanjali, a commentary and interpretation of Panini’s grammar, has itself been commented upon abundantly in the past and is studied in traditional Sanskrit schools to this day. This text, along with its older written commentaries and its modern oral commentaries, constitutes an important document of Indian intellectual culture. The text is translated here in French along with the Pradipa of Kaiyata (prior to 1150 A.D.), a commentary that is based on that of Bhartrhari, and...

The legend of Dhola-Maru is an ancient ballad composed in old Marvari, one of the first dialects of North India to attain the status of a literary language. It is a piece of popular literature, a love story with a lyrical aspect to the fore. The numerous and diverse adaptations of this legend in the north-western provinces bear witness to its success. The text presented here with a translation into French is based primarily on the recension of Bikaner. The introduction presents the various... 
 Les enseignements architecturaux de l'Ajitagama et du Rauravagama. (Etudes sur les agama sivaïtes, I)  Bruno Dagens Les enseignements architecturaux de l'Ajitagama et du Rauravagama. (Etudes sur les agama sivaïtes, I)   $19.49  $14.62  Buy Now 
Ajitagama and Rauravagama, critically edited in the same series (above N° 24 et 18) by Pandit N.R. Bhatt are two saiva treatises pertaining to the saivasiddhanta school. Like several other agamas of the saivasiddhanta they comprise important and much detailed presentation of the architecture of siva temples together with that of their pavilions, gopuras, etc. In this book those chapters are analysed and their terminology is systematically studied. Thus the author gives a first tableau of the...

The present volume is a sequel to the publication ‘La Voie vers la Connaissance de Dieu (Brahma-jijnasa) selon l’Anuvyakhyana de Madhva (PIFI, n°6).

In the first of the Brahma- sutras that enjoins ‘the quest of the knowledge of Brahman’, he finds the principles of his theist Vedanta, his theology...

The Pur?n?as are later compilations of more ancient texts. They therefore often furnish remarkable historical information, as in the case of these three texts on music derived from the V?yu-Pur?n?a, the M?rkan?d?eya-Pur?n?a and the Vis?n?u- Dharmottara. This critical edition uses a vast corpus for reconstructing the corrupted texts of these Pur?n?as. The musical system described in them closely resembles that of the N?t?ya ??stra and already employs terms such as jati, gamaka, r?ga, ?ruti, etc,...

Explication des dix-huit différences (entre les deux branches de l'Ecole de Ramanuja) de Sri Vatsya Ranganatha   $16.49  $12.37  Buy Now 
A controversy of a theological nature on the divergences between the two major schools of Vaisnavism in the South continues even to this day. The debate between the school of the ‘North’ or vad?agalai, founded on the Sanskrit tradition, and that of the South, or ten?galai, which is partial to Tamil tradition, concerns the relations between divine grace and human endeavor and the nature of surren-der to this grace on the part of the devotee. The Astadasabhedanirnaya is one of the texts relating...
