Sanskrit Studies Vol. 1, Samvat 2061-62 (ce 2004-05)
Sanskrit Studies Vol. 1, Samvat 2061-62 (ce 2004-05)
Description
From the Jacket:

The educated Indian mind of today is, by and large, subjugated by the contemporary ethnographic, conflict-oriented, divisive thought and ideologies of the west. This can be corrected only by the thought structure in the Sanskrit intellectual texts. Two learned Supreme Court Judges noted in 1993 - "the people of India have always held in high esteem the cultural heritage of this ancient land. And learning of Sanskrit is undoubtedly necessary for protection of this heritage." And the 1986 education policy said, "Efforts will be made to delve into India's ancient fund of knowledge and to relate it to contemporary reality. This effort will imply the development of facilities for the intensive study of Sanskrit."

With this in mind, JNU set up in 2002 the Special Centre for Sanskrit Studies to examine and relate Indian thought systems both to the contemporary Indian reality and the contemporary western thinking. A research journal / publication is integral to the vision. This volume is the first issue and it promises a continuous commitment to Indian thought, its validity and value. We hope that this effort shall built a team of young scholars with commitment to exact Indian scholarship.

This book ranges over logic, grammar, philosophy, environment, aesthetics, interpretation, science, epic-poetry, India's cultural presence in Asia, and maintenance of texts, and as such should interest students, researchers and teachers of languages, literature, sciences and philosophy.

We would like the readers to enjoy this first volume. We welcome comments, observations, responses and also invite contributions for the next volume in the series.

Thank You very much for this wonderful opportunity for helping people to acquire the spiritual treasures of Hinduism at such an affordable price.
Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
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.
Bernd, Spain
