Description

 

From the Jacket:

 

Amaruka (A.D.800-A.D.900), one of the greatest lyrical poets of all time, wrote Amarukshataka. It is one of the finest lyrics of love in Sanskrit literature. About the authorship of Amarukshataka, various traditional stories are told. One is that Amarukshataka was composed by Sankaracharya who has entered the body of king Amaruka, who expired during his trip to northern countries for Digvijaya. Another is that Amaruka was a king who flourished somewhere in North India. He had a hundred ladies in his harem and each day he composed a verse for the lady with whom he spent that day. Amaruka has the distinction of having at least eight royal commentators and three more works that explain the poem.

Amaruka's stanzas on love are often voluptuous, but they can humorously tender, and always show a sound understanding of feminine psychology. Amaruka loved to describe a poignant moment in a human relationship in a single verse, in which the reader is given only the climax of the story, the reconstruction of the rest being left to his imagination.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
