Trance and Amnesia: Shamanic Healing of the Changpa Nomads in the Ladakhi Changthang

By Ina Rosing

New Delhi, India: Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd., 2006. The shamans of the Changpa-nomads of the Ladakhi highlands of Changthang belong to the Tibetan culture. Modernity has reached even their remote world and challenges their life basis in a dramatic way. Their traditional healers, the shamans, recognize the "disease" of modernity the clearest. They envision the presence and future in trance and devine possession. Listening to their prayers and songs in trance, which bewail so much more violence in our times ("more blood than ever before flows down the valleys"), their admonitions get a remarkable actuality. (The manuscript of this book was finished shortly after the 11th of September 2001). Hermetic amnesia follows the trance of the Changpa shamans. In the present book the author shows how one can understand them despite amnesia, how one can decipher their bridging of old a modern times and, in this way, bring their message also to the modern world. Printed Pages: 327.. Hardcover. New/New.

Ayurvedic Technical Studies and Herbal Cosmetics of Ancient India

By K.H. Krishnamurthy

New Delhi, India: B.R. Publishing Corporation, 2001. Exploring ancient Sanskrit Texts for their scientific aspects adopting modem methods of rigorous investigative approaches can be said to have begun only recently. Two ancient sciences of India that can be said to be alive still in the old formats are Ayurveda and Gandharvaveda. We do have extensive ancient literature on these two as well as practical applications. In this book Ayurvedic Technical Studies and Herbal Cosmetics of ancient India, five studies are presented. The first one deals with ecological resource management that the great Canakya mentions in considerable detail in his famous Artha Shastra. This is followed by a very technical study in Chapter 4 of an equally topical value that is concerned with cosmetics and perfume preparations as another famous person of Indian History, Varahamira deals with in his Brhatsamhita. The other three studies are concerned with an attempt of devising a rather new methodology of pharmaco-linguistics to solve the vexed problem of settling the botanical identity of ancient plant names of ayurvedic texts on some rational basis. The last chapter presents the text of a paper on Exploring Plant Wealth in Sanskritic Works-A paper presented by the Author at the National Conference on Ethno-pharmacology held in Mysore. Printed Pages: 130.. Hardcover. New/New.

A Source Book of Indian Medicine: An Anthology

By K.H. Krishnamurthy

New Delhi, India: B.R. Publishing Corporation, 1991. The book, executed as a project of the University Grants Commission, examines this possibility anthologically. It does so from as wide a range of Sanskrit sources as felt necessary. This includes the Vedas, the Edicts, the Upanishads, the Dharmashastras and the Darshanas besides many classical texts on ayurveda and their commen-taries and so on. The highly rationalistic modern mind would be more impressed if it is made to acquaint itself as directly as possible with the original statements of the Sanskrit authors. This is why the anthological method is choosen towards this objective. This involves effective selection of the sources and quotations in Sanskrit, arranging them in an order best condusive to their appreciation by students of modern medicine. Experiment is a purposeful manipulation of the circumstances to check the veracity of our hypothesis. In this sense, science is probably new to ancient Indian ethos or rather to human civilization itself. The book is an attempt to demonstrate this thesis. Printed Pages: 560.. Hardcover. New/New.
