Metarules of Paninian Grammar, 2 vols (bound in one)

By Dominik Wujastyk

New Delhi, India: Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd., 2017. The Vyadiyaparibhasavrtti is the earliest Sanskrit work entirely devoted to discussing the metarules and underlying assumptions of Panini's formal grammar of Sanskrit (5th-4th century BC). As such, it has much to teach us about the early development of ideas in this difficult and technical area which spans Indology and the history of linguistics. While the author does not admit it explicitly, he borrows heavily from Patanjali's Mahabhasya, but often changes or disregards the original purpose of these borrowed arguments. The discussions in the Vyadiyaparibhasavrtti are, in turn, typical of those used by later commentators, and the present book traces the development of these lines of thought from Patanjali in the third century BC to Nagesa in the seventeenth century.

New Delhi, India: D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd., 2018. The experiences and knowledge from our past are recorded in manuscripts which have been handed down to us over several thousand years. The Government of India, through the Department of Culture, took note of the importance of this vast tangible heritage and, in order to preserve and conserve as well as to make access to this wealth easy, established the National Mission for Manuscripts (NMM). In order to disseminate the knowledge content of manuscripts, the NMM has taken up several programmes such as lectures, seminars and workshops. NMM has published the proceedings of the above-said programmes under the following series: “Samrakshika” (on conservation), “Tattvabodha” (comprising lectures based on manuscripts delivered by eminent scholars), “Samikshika” (research-oriented papers presented in the seminars), and “Kritibodha” (transcribed and edited texts prepared at advanced level manuscriptology workshops conducted by NMM).NMM has taken up a project for publishing rare and unpublished manuscripts in three forms: (a) facsimile, (b) critical edition with annotation, and (c) critical edition with translation. This series has been named as “Prakashika”. This volume, is twenty-eighth in the Prakashika Series.This book is the critical edition of Nutanatarivyakhya, a remarkable commentary by Bhagavatkavibhatta on Rasatarangini, a famous treatise of Bhanudatta on rasa theory.

The Niti and Vairagya Satakas of Bhartrhari

By M.R. Kale

New Delhi, India: Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd., 2017. The Satakas are an original work. They are three in number, viz. Sringara, Niti and Vairagya. They must have been composed by the poet after he had renounced the world. Probably the Niti Sataka was written first, then followed the Sringara and lastly the Vairagya Sataka. In the Niti Sataka Bhartrhari inculcates certain principles intended to guide men in their daily life. First and foremost of these is Self-respect. He points out the value of independence and asks his readers not to lose self-respect in the midst of even overwhelming difficulties and trials in slokas couched in very impressive language. Another virtue to which the poet draws attention is perseverance. Men of firm minds, says he, carry to a successful conclusion whatever they undertake. A third virtue which he holds up for our admiration and imitation is Benevolence or service of our fellow-men. This lofty virtue he inculcates in verses which are at once beautiful and instructive. In the Vairagya Sataka the poet inculcates the principle of renunciation. He tells us to undermine desire, in verses which hold out the greed of worldly men to ridicule and the arrogance of the rich to contempt. He exhorts his readers to turn from worldly pleasures which give not lasting happiness but often disappoint, and to seek mental calm in the solitude of the forest. The poet often draws a glowing picture of the perfect happiness which men who have renounced the world enjoy. This volume comprises two of the three famous Satakas (collection of one hundred stanzes) of the famous poet philosopher Bhartrhari. The first of them the Niti Sataka is proposed to guide people in their daily life and it lays emphasis on the moral virtues such as self-respect, perseverance, benevolence and moral courage etc. The second, Vairagya Sataka exhorts the readers to turn away from worldly pleasures and seek mental calm in the solitude of the forest. It is edited by M. R. Kale who has added a simple commentary in sanskrit and english translation and copious notes. Printed Pages: 277.. Softcover. New.

Cultural Contours of Vedic and Post Vedic Age

By Dr Sushma

New Delhi, India: Agam Kala Prakashan The Book Present work entitled, Cultural Contours of Vedic and Post Vedic Age. The Vedic period was the cradle of not only the Indian civilization but perhaps that of the entire world. There is a raging debate going on for more than a century and a half for putting this civilization in a specific time frame without arriving at a definite conclusion that may not defy the evidence at hand. The ultimate solution may come from the age old Indian concept of sanatana, the one that does not have a beginning or an end. At least it is applicable to the Vedic culture whose continuity has never been challenged to this day. Beyond any doubt the Vedic culture can boast of the longest surviving culture as it is a living culture. What was practiced thousands of year ago is still followed by the people of this land. The reflection of the society contained in the vast ocean of the Vedic literature comprising the Samhitas, Brahamanas, Aranyakas and the Upanishads called Sruti and followed by equally vast post-Vedic literature given the name Smriti, provide us glimpses of the unfathomable wisdom of the people who not only composed it but practiced it as a way of life. The culture that originated in the Saptasindhu land comprising the north-west of the Indian sub-continent gradually spreading throughout the length and breadth of Bharatavarsha and even beyond the geographical contours of this land. That is why India has served as the beacon of the spiritual light to the entire world since times immemorial.Dr. Sushma has given a lucid exposition of present delicate discussive Cultural Contours of Vedic and Post Vedic Age. The present work by scholars, culture & philosophy readers besides the general readers. Printed Pages: 200.. Hardcover. New/New.
