Derived from the genre of campu (a mixture of prose and poetry), the entire volume is presented as a dialogue between two celestial beings (gandharvas), who traverse India from the north to the south flying in a celestial chariot. While one of them criticizes the citites, the inhabitants and the the gods, the other dwells on their qualities and the virtues. Reviving the theme of the aerial journey (on the lines of the Meghaduta and Kalidasa), the poem glorifies the principal places of worship...

Volume 1   $44.95  $33.71  Buy Now 
This is a French translation of a commentary on the second part of the Tolkappiyam, the oldest preserved Tamil grammar. It deals mostly with the word (col) as a part of speech. The seven central chapters deal with the cases and the four types of words (nouns, verbs, particles and “proper words”). The commentary, probably composed around 1300 A.D., contains a word-for-word paraphrase of the sutra-s, examples drawn from classical literature and from ordinary language, and elaborate discussions....

The present volume contains an edition, French translation and study of the Dhatukavya by Narayanabhatta, poet and grammarian of the 17th century and native of Kerala. The Dhatukavya is a Sanskrit poem of the sastrakavya genre of literature or didactic poetry. Woven around the narration of the assassination of Kamsa by Krsna in the Bhagavata-purana, it illustrates in the most refined of Sanskrit poetry, all the verbal roots recorded in the Paninian Dhatupatha (as transmitted by the... 
 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... 
 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...

Within a secular corpus, the Parip?t?al, composed around Madurai city and its river, Vaigai, contains unique devotional songs to M?l (Vis?n?u) and Cevv?l (Murukan?), the first to be written in classical Tamil, and conform to the Hindu lore. The date is controversial, but the horoscope which opens poem XI is discussed in the introduction with the help of Roger Billard, historian of Indian astronomy. It may well be a sheet anchor for the whole corpus of Sangam literature, as astronomical data... 
 Le Prataparudriya de Vidyanatha avec le commentaire Ratnapana de Kumarasvamin  Pierre-Sylvain Filliozat Le Prataparudriya de Vidyanatha avec le commentaire Ratnapana de Kumarasvamin   $25.95  $19.46  Buy Now 
The Prataparudriyasobhusana, “ornament to the glory of Prataparudra” or Prataparudriya, is a summary of the ‘science of literary adornments’ (alamkarasastra). Singing the praises of Prataparudra II, the last of the Kakatiya rulers of Warangal, the text was, in all likelihood, composed during the period of his reign, at the turn of the 14th century A.D. Using the traditional method consisting of verse (karika) and gloss (vrtti) for his theoretical treatise, the author, Vidyanatha, also composes...

 Le temple de Tirumankaiyal_var à Hampi  Vasundhara Filliozat Le temple de Tirumankaiyal_var à Hampi   $16.49  $12.37  Buy Now 
The Tamil saint, Tiruman?kaiyal?var (2nd half of the 8th century A.D.) has a place in all Visnu temples in Tamil Nadu, either with the other al?vars or in a special sanctuary located next to the principal deity. In Karnataka, he has an independent temple at Hampi, built during the reign of Sadasivaraya, which is very representative of the principal style of architecture and sculpture of Vijayanagar in the 16th century A.D. The present study in French describes the architecture of the temple,...

The discovery of new cartographic material relating to the origins of the urban development and social structure of Pondicherry at crucial moments of its history considerably modifies our representation of the town. On the basis of all the documentation that is currently available in Archives in France and in the Netherlands, the author shows us how, from a simple town of craftsmen, this settlement became a metropolis structured according to a rigorous urban plan. He also shows us how the...

Properties of ferrallitic soils have been investigated in the Indian Western Ghats on three different parent rocks in the escarpments and on precambrian schist in the backslope. All soils of the escarpment, though experiencing high weathering (ferralitization) due to rainfall above 4000 mm/year are deep, well-drained, rather juvenile (high silt/clay ratios) with substantial nutrient recycling by evergreen forest vegetation. Backslope is characterized by gentler slopes and by a land cover...

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.

Ferry Les humus forestiers des Ghâts occidentaux en Inde du Sud. Facteurs climatiques, édaphiques et biologiques intervenant dans le stockage de la matière organique du sol   $32.49  $24.37  Buy Now 
The soil organic matter was studied in 23 forests of the Western Ghats, characterized by varied conditions of altitude, pluviometry, length of the dry season, forest cover (evergreen to deciduous) and soil texture (sandy loam to clay). The storage of soil carbon appears mainly driven by the temperature and the soil texture. However, we observed also a complex effect of the length of the dry season. It would limit the storage of carbon when it is very long (more than six months), by shortening... 
 Les légendes çivaïtes de Kañcipuram  R. Dessigane Les légendes çivaïtes de Kañcipuram

Grammar in India can be equated with the study of Sanskrit (considered as Language par excellence), rigorous in research and description, and having attained the highest scientific level since antiquity. The interpretation of P?n?ini’s grammar following the guidelines defined by Patañjali is alive in traditional Sanskrit schools to this day. The Mah?bhasya of Patañjali is a model of the art of reasoning and has been abundantly commented upon over the centuries. The present edition is intended...
