The nine decades between 1858 and 1947 were an important time for India. The country was awakening to new realities, trying to shape her own destiny and was inching her way to freedom. In the process was produced a galaxy of statesmen, social reformers and freedom fighters who were not just exceptional people, but brilliant orators as well. Starting with Queen Victoria’s ‘Proclamation’ and ending with Jawaharlal Nehru’s famous ‘Tryst with Destiny’ speech, this book brings together some of the...

 A Concordance of Nayakas  Nonoru Karashima A Concordance of Nayakas   $29.17  $21.88  Buy Now 
In the history of the Nayakas of the Vijayanagar kingdom, in South India, the period from 1326 to 1675 is particularly important. The Nayaka system was dominant from the fifteenth to the early seventeenth century. The Nayakas were key state administrators, functionaries, and revenue collectors and as such were liable to be transferred. Although they played a very important administrative role, there are no detailed studies on them except those on some big families. This detailed statistical... 
 A Course in Indian Philosophy  Anthony Kennedy Warder A Course in Indian Philosophy   $31.99  $23.99  Buy Now 
The present volume appears to be the first general introduction, for English-reading students, to that which, in Indian tradition, corresponds to 'philosophy' in British and probably in most other English-speaking universities. It shows how Indian philosophers have posed such questions as whether we can be sure we 'know' anything, whether words 'mean' anything, whether it is possible to generalise from observed regularities in nature and whether there is anything in nature, or in 'reality',...

 A Dictionary of Hinduism  S.Kapoor A Dictionary of Hinduism   $25.49  $19.12  Buy Now 
Hinduism, one of the great religions of the world, is the major religion of India, where nearly 85 percent of the population is classified as Hindu. Hinduism has developed over about 4,000 years and has no single founder or creed; rather, it consists of a vast variety of beliefs and practices. In its diversity, Hinduism hardly fits most Western definitions of religion; rather, it suggests commitment to or respect for an ideal way of life, known as dharma. A Dictionary of Hinduism is the...

 A History of Sanskrit Literature  A. Berriedale Keith A History of Sanskrit Literature   $20.49  $15.37  Buy Now 
Taken in conjunction with the author's Sanskrit Drama, this work covers the field of classical Sanskrit literature as opposed to the Vedic literature, the epics and the Puranas. To bring the subject-matter within the limits of a single volume has rendered it necessary to treat the scientific literature briefly, and to avoid discussions of its subject-matter, which appertains rather to the historian of grammar, philosophy, law, medicine, astronomy or mathematics, than to the literary historians....

 A Legacy of Protest and Non Violent Resistance  S.R. Bakshi A Legacy of Protest and Non Violent Resistance   $60.99  $45.74  Buy Now 
The legacy of protest and non-violent resistance is the unique phenomenon which has deep links with the technique of satyagraha launched by Mahatma Gandhi. The theme gives us a vivid picture of his way of life which was quite simple and it has identification with a common villager living in the far-flung region.  The theme of the volume, weaved into twelve chapters, has bearing on the crucial period of history. It gives out a rich background and deals with the early ideology of the... 
 A Mandala of Cards The Buddha Tarot  Robert M. Place A Mandala of Cards The Buddha Tarot   $44.99  $33.74  Buy Now 
The twenty-two sequential cards of the Tarot’s major arcana are often seen in larger terms as a depiction of the archetypal hero’s journey. The journey from the naivete of the Fool card to the universal consciousness of the World card is in many ways a path similar to Prince Siddhartha’s journey to enlightenment. In this companion guide to The Buddha Tarot, artist and writer Robert M. Place, who drew parallels between Christianity and the Tarot in the Tarot of the Saints, now applies his unique...

 A New Approach to the Vedas  Ananda K. Coomaraswamy A New Approach to the Vedas   $16.49  $12.37  Buy Now 
From the pen of Ananda K. Coomaraswamy this small but wonderful volume is an essay in translation and exegesis in relation to the Vedas in which passages from the Rgveda and the Brhadaranyaka and Maitri Upanishads, dealing with cosmogony, ontology and teleology, have been interpreted in a new perception of the quite extraordinary depth of those ideas and their amazing psychological accuracy. According to Coomaraswamy no great extension of our present measure of understanding of the Vedas can be...
