Studies in the Dharamasastra of Manu
Studies in the Dharamasastra of Manu
Description

From the Jacket:

This book of Professor Banerjee is an attempt to present Manusmriti as an outstanding sociological work of ancient India with an unusually comprehensive outlook and to evaluate its impact on the organization of the Hindu society. Although Manu has been succeeded by a number of sociologists such as Narada, Brihaspati and others, who have made valuable contributions to the development of sociological thinking in India, his influence upon the organization of the Hindu society persists till this day. On this account and also on account of the absense of any effective dynamic to initiate the process of wholesome change in the social milieu, the Hindu society, as Professor Banerjee has tried to show, has been suffering from the evil of stagnation till this day. This circumstance calls for the ways and means which can break through the state of stagnation and being about social progress among the Hindus. This is, then, a book which is bound to be of interest to the students of sociology, law, the history of ancient India and the history of Sanskrit literature. It is likely to be of special use to those who are actively engaged in social work.

About the Author:

Professor N.V. Banerjee was educated in the Universities of Calcutta and London and is well known as an origin thinker and a creative writer on philosophical subjects. He has taught for many years at the University of Delhi where he was the Head of the Department of Philosophy from 1946 to 1963. After his retirement he became professor of philosophy and comparative religion at the Hindu Institute of Advanced Study at Simla for two years. He was also the General President of the Indian Philosophical Congress. He visited China as a member of the Indian Universities delegation and lectured in the University of Peking. He has been on a lecture tour twice in Australia and several countries in both Eastern and Western Europe, including Poland, Hungary, Germany, the Netherlands and England. Other academic assignments have taken him to several countries in South-East Asia. His research papers and numerous publication in book form provide ample evidence of a mind that is at home in India as well as Western thought and is gifted with an unusual capacity for analytical and synthetic thinking.

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
