 La légende des jeux de Çiva à Madurai, d'après les textes et les peintures  R. Dessigane La légende des jeux de Çiva à Madurai, d'après les textes et les peintures     
Madurai, capital of the kingdom of Pand?ya, with its famous temple, commonly known as the Minaksi temple, is considered as a vibrant centre of religion and a backdrop for the national legends of Tamil Nadu. A group of legendary deeds of siva, his ‘games’, have Madurai as their stage and constitute a marvellous story. The large temple describes this entire story to us in the form of a long series of modern mural paintings (19th century), while three literary works (two texts in Tamil entitled... 
 Les légendes çivaïtes de Kañcipuram  R. Dessigane Les légendes çivaïtes de Kañcipuram     
Kancipuram, in Tamil Nadu, is one of the principal permanent seats of Hinduism where Vaisnavism and saivism have coexisted since a very long time. The Kancipuranam, a text in Tamil dating back to the second half of the 18th century, narrates the various legends connected to the site. It is attributed to the poet Civananacuvami and was inspired from a Sanskrit Kancimahatmya said to belong to the Skandapurana. Though pan- Indian in its religious traditions, it is deeply rooted in and adapted to... 
 Sivayogaratna de Jñanaprakasa. Le joyau du Siva-Yoga  Tara Michaël Sivayogaratna de Jñanaprakasa. Le joyau du Siva-Yoga     
This book presents an edition and French translation of the Sanskrit ?ivayogaratna. Its author, a ?udra born in Shalivati (Sri Lanka) in the 16th century, first travelled to Cidambaram, then to Bengal where he took lessons from a Brahmin teaching Ved?nta. Put to the test by his guru, he surprised the latter by his intelligence and became his disciple. Returning to the South, he was initiated into the ?gamas and became a sanny?sin. He is the author of one of the six old Tamil commentaries on the... 
 Textes sanskrits et tamouls de Thaïlande  Neelakanta Sarma Textes sanskrits et tamouls de Thaïlande     
In Thailand and in Cambodia are found a community of so-called ‘Brahmans’ specializing in the art of performing ‘Hindu’ rites during official religious functions. The present volume gathers together Sanskrit and Tamil texts preserved for the most part at the Vajiranana library in Bangkok which belonged to them. These manuscripts are in Grantha script, used for writing Sanskrit in Tamil Nadu, but modified both in form, for certain characters, and in usage, following Khmer and Siamese writing... 
 Barahmasa - Les chansons des douze mois dans les littératures indo-aryennes  Charlotte Vaudeville Barahmasa - Les chansons des douze mois dans les littératures indo-aryennes   $12.95  $9.71  Buy Now 
The poetic genre known as the barahmasa, or ‘twelve months’, devotes a stanza to each of the months of the year. Found in the vernacular literatures of the north of India, it proved immensely popular amongst the rural communities and continues to be orally transmitted through village songs. This study is based on the oldest of the barahmasa-s, which appear mainly in three languages: ancient Marwari-Gujarati, Avadhi and old Bengali. It presents samples of the barahmasa in several dialects (13th...

The present publication presents a series of photographs of caves in South India that were transformed in the olden days into shrines or temples. It tries to complete the research already published on the subject and to inform archeologists outside of India about the interest of these cave-temples. These cave-temples bear testimony to the practice of converting caves into shrines not only prior to the appearance of constructed temples but also at much later periods. The first volume is devoted...

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). The Anuvyakhyana is a commentary on the Brahma-sutra composed by Madhva. The latter opines that all ancient scriptures speak only of Visnu and of his innumerable qualities. 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 present publication is a critical edition and a translation into French of the Tattvabindu, a Sanskrit text by V?caspatimi?ra, belonging to the M?m?m?sa system and dealing with the philosophical aspect of speech.

The text attempts to confront the problematic of...

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... 
 Industrialisation et société dans l'Inde du Nord  Purushottam Joshi Industrialisation et société dans l'Inde du Nord   $16.49  $12.37  Buy Now 
This publication studies the factors of resistance to industrialization in North Indian society, which is that of a culture in transition from the traditional and preindustrial to the industrial system. Following an introduction outlining the problems addressed, it speaks of the traditional social structure as an impediment to a better quality of life. It then analyzes the factors of resistance or the causes of delay, ascribing these to the survival of the caste system. It examines the existing...

Krsna worship is one of the most popular manifestations of religiosity in India. The present study illustrates the ritual aspects of the Krsna cult based primarily on Sanskrit sources such as the Puranas and Tantras, the Pancaratrasamhitas and the Haribhaktivilasa. It deals with initiation (diksa), with the rosary and the rite of purascarana, the construction of the temple of Krsna, elaboration, consecration and worship of his images, and with the bhakta. It demonstrates how Krsna-worship has... 
 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,... 
 Les Duha de Dhola-Maru. Une ancienne ballade du Rajasthan  Charlotte Vaudeville Les Duha de Dhola-Maru. Une ancienne ballade du Rajasthan   $16.49  $12.37  Buy Now 
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 hiérarchies spirituelles selon l'Anuvyakhyana de Madhva  Suzanne Siauve Les hiérarchies spirituelles selon l'Anuvyakhyana de Madhva   $16.49  $12.37  Buy Now 
The Anuvy?khy?na, composed by Madhva at the start of the 14th century A.D., is a commentary on the Brahma-s?tras containing philosophical and theological developments. The present volume comprises passages from the last chapters of the text in which the personal reflections of the author can be distinguished from the exegesis. These passages deal with the doctrine of the hierarchy of the gods, one of the essential doctrines of Madhva’s theology. In a polytheist environment, questions must be... 
 Raghavayadaviya par Venkatadhvarin  M.S. Narasimhacharya Raghavayadaviya par Venkatadhvarin   $16.49  $12.37  Buy Now 
The Raghavayadaviya is a poem with two meanings (anuloma-viloma-kavya). All thirty stanzas, when presented in the habitual order, glorify Rama (recalling his important feats in the Ramayana) and, when read differently and in reverse order, they glorify Krsna (by narrating an episode in his legend, the abduction of the Parijata tree). The prosodic constraints imposed by this dual reading result in stylistic obscurity: accumulation of monosyllables, usage of rare terms etc. To overcome the... 
 Textes des Purana sur la théorie musicale - Vol. 1  Alain Daniélou Textes des Purana sur la théorie musicale - Vol. 1   $16.49  $12.37  Buy Now 
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,... 
 Chants dévotionnels tamouls de Karaikkalammaiyar  Chants dévotionnels tamouls de Karaikkalammaiyar   $19.49  $14.62  Buy Now 
This earliest expression of saiva devotion in Tamil by the poetess from Karaikkal is published with an outstanding translation by Karavelane (Leon Saint-Jean, a lawyer and freedom fighter from Karaikkal, where he inaugurated in 1937 a French Institute of Indianism). It remains a landmark, and the preface (1956), by Jean Filliozat, a valid charter for French Indology. The new edition has been considerably enriched, by a complete glossary/concordance of the poems, a full translation by Vinson...

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.

 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...

 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...

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 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.
