Buddhist Hybrid Sanskrit Grammar and Dictionary, Volume I: Grammar, Vol. II: Dictionary

Franklin Edgerton

New Delhi, India: Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., 2011 This is a pioneering work dealing with the description of the grammar and the lexicon of Buddhist Hybrid Sanskrit (BHS). Most of the Buddhist texts available in north India are based on it. It is based primarily on an old Middle Indic vernacular not otherwise identifiable. It contains features which were borrowed from other Middle Indic dialects either originally or in course of historic development or both. In other words, even its Middle Indic aspects are dialectically somewhat mixed. However, Buddhist Hybrid Sanskrit (BHS) was also influenced extensively by Sanskrit from the very beginning of the tradition as it has been transmitted to us and increasingly as time went on. Later many products of this tradition have often, though wrongly been called "Sanskrit" without any bearing. The most striking peculiarity of this language is that from the very beginning of its tradition it was modified in the direction of standard Sanskrit, while still retaining evidences of its Middle Indic origin, in all its texts, even the oldest, as shown by our manuscripts and editions. Sanskritisms are constantly presented check by jowl with Middle Indic forms, and often with hybrids which strictly are neither one or other. These Sanskritisms are much too common to be comparable with stray Sanskrit loan words or loan forms which may have been occasionally adopted in many genuine Middle Indic vernacular. The author has excluded from the grammar and dictionary all forms which are standard Sanskrit, and all words which are used in standard Sanskrit with the same meanings. Printed Pages: 896. Reprint. Hardcover. New/New. 23 x 29 Cm.

Marriage and the family, social and cultural structures, religion and mythology, taboos and exogamy are all described vividly, and amplified by comparisons and evaluations. The author, who has been connected with anthropological work in the State for long, has studied the aboriginals with sympathy and acre, and writes with deep knowledge and scientific accuracy. The book is the fruit of many years of study, and should interest not only students of anthropology, but also intelligent lay readers, for it presents material essential for an understanding of the life of the primitive folk of Kerela.

Amar Chitra Katha

Amar Chitra Katha/ACK Media, 2008. Softcover. New. A strange and fascinating series of divine events led to the birth of Manikanthan, who had a glorious destiny. According to Indian mythology, he is one of the sons of the great ascetic Lord Shiva. At the end of a life full of dramatic events, Lord Parashurama himself sculpted and installed an idol of Manikanthan in the hill temple of Shabari. There, as Lord Ayyappan, he is worshipped as the presiding deity of the whole range. This lone temple on the top of the Shabari Hills, deep in the forests of Kerala, attracts millions of devotees from all over the country every year. They travel through dense forests full of wild animals, over steep hills and in inclement weather for a darshan (glimpse) of Ayyappan on Makar Sankranti (a festival which falls on the 14th of January). It is said that the Lord comes down to the Shabari Hills on Makar Sankranti in the form of light to give darshan to his innumerable devotees and that he himself lights the temple lamp. Then, in a moving and beautiful ritual, the pilgrims partake of the prasad and walk backwards down the 18 steps, their faces turned towards the Lord, shining with devotion and ecstasy.
