 The Siege of Troy  Kireet Joshi The Siege of Troy   $9.99  $7.49  Buy Now 
An extract from the famous poem of Homer, the Iliad. Through this epic, Homer presents the Greek world-view, a view of life where men are seen as a base metal beaten and shaped by the gods and fate until their inner golden nature is revealed. He showed the Greeks more than just heroic deeds; his poetic genius drew aside the curtain of outer events and gave a vivid picture of the inner forces there at work. Introduction, text and notes.

This unparalleled comparative study of early Eastern and Western philosophy challenges every existing belief about the philosophical foundations of Western civilization.

 The Saraswati Flows On: The Continuity of Indian Culture  B. B. Lal The Saraswati Flows On: The Continuity of Indian Culture   $80.49  $60.37  Buy Now 
This book deals with two major controversies relating to India's past. First, It has been asserted by many scholars, both Indian and foreign, that the Sarasvati mentioned in the Rigveda is the Helmand of Afghanistan. The author examines the entire Rigvedic evidence and demonstrates that it goes counter to aforesaid assumption. On the other hand, there are compelling geographical data in the Rigveda itself which unambiguously show that the Rigvedic Sarasvati is none other than the present-day...

 The Sanskrit Language  Pierre Sylvain Filliozat The Sanskrit Language   $14.49  $10.87  Buy Now 
The Sanskrit Language by P S Filliozat has the rare distinction of being both an introductory book and a new ground-breaking study. It is an introductory book because the reader gets an accurate overview of the language, and it is also a new ground-breaking study because Filliozat’s approach harmonizes two different and complementary stands that often have been at war: the Western historical and comparative approach and the indigenous pundit tradition. Sanskrit is described here from these two...

 The Religious Imagery of Khajuraho  Devangana Desai The Religious Imagery of Khajuraho   $179.49  $134.62  Buy Now

 The Principal Upanishads  Alan Jacobs The Principal Upanishads   $22.95  $17.21  Buy Now 
The origins of the Upanishads, sacred writings of Hinduism, predate recorded history.  They are thought of by many as perhaps the greatest of all the books in the history of world religions. Since they were revealed to the Rishis of the Vedic civilisation some 5,000 to 10,000 years ago, many have come to regard them as the kernel of the mystical and philosophical truths that are the basis of understanding religion today.  Alan Jacobs has used free modern verse to convey the essential...
