  • Philosophy of history -- India -- Historiography On the philosophy of historical writings to 324 B.C. Understanding Itihasa in fact stoutly and cogently contests the stereotypical view that early India lacked a sense of history. With patience, care and sympathy the monograph studies and analyzes a host of terms and concepts that developed in early India relating to human past, the methods of its preservation and the concerned expertise in those fields. The material studies spans from the Rgvedic period to the Early Medieval and includes literary, epigraphical and numismatic. The monograph gently and firmly asserts that the currently dominate view of history may not be the only valid way of looking at past. pt. 1. The path that great men walked -- pt. 2.

An account of his institutional context and relationships elucidates his friendships and rivalries, notably with Avicenna. The book also shows how varied paths of transmission affected the legacy of Biruni and its reception in global scientific and literary traditions. Finally, a timeline, list of key works, and detailed bibliographic essay will guide readers into further study of Biruni and his thought. This comprehensive overview of Biruni is based on the Arabic and Persian primary sources in the original languages using the best editions.

  • Aesthetics, Indic. -- Sanskrit literature -- History and criticism India not only has a very rich and uninterrupted tradition of poetry, but it also developed different forms of literature, including drama, and an equally ancient tradition of performing as well as plastic art forms. The Nafya:scistra of Bharata remains the source of the entire speculation on poetics and the theory of art and aesthetics. Abhinavabharati, the only available commentary on the Natyashastra is a monumental work on not only the theory of rasa but also on the concept of beauty in nature as well as art. At the same time, there are numerous texts available on music, dance, sculpture, architecture and so on, besides the huge material available in the Agamas and the Puranas. Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts (IGNCA), Regional Centre, Varanasi cherished an idea of exploring the possibilities of the pervasive theory of Indian aesthetics, which may embrace literature, theatre and all other art forms. With a desire to explore to what extent these theories may encompass the vast area of literature and arts, a special lecture series was planned and organized. The present volume is an outcome of the lecture series. It is hoped that volume will be of immense interest to the connoisseurs of Indian art and aesthetics across the country and abroad. It should help them to relish the taste of various dimensions of Indian aesthetics.

  • Buddhism -- Doctrines -- Study and teaching The book titled 'What is Buddhist Studies?" resembles a mirror that reflects some outlines of the most important and demanding topic on the academic study of Buddhism, subsuming both Buddhist doctrine and philosophy. The aforesaid term applies to both the traditional and scientific studies. It also applies to the academic field, which is a subset of religious studies, and is distinct from Buddhist Philosophy or Buddhist theology. Hence, Buddhist Studies covers the study of the five major and five minor sciences. These sciences are interconnected like spider-web. Each one of them has its own importance and significance.

  • Martial arts (Kung fu) -- Religious aspects -- Buddhism -- History This unique study of the genesis and development of the earliest form of Buddhist self-defense practiced by Chuan Fa monks and mystics shows both the philosophical and physical basis of the skills developed and passed on to subsequent generations. There are many who mistakenly believe Buddhism to be a predominately philosophical teaching that regards physical and spiritual being as incompatible, or even antagonistic, toward each other. This book seeks to reunite these concepts. Its teaching draws equally on the practices of Nothern Chinese Chaan Movement Meditation Traditions and on the South Chinese Esoteric(Mi Chiao) School - both secret traditions rarely revealed to the general public. Extensive appendices list the main Chinese dynasties, events during 1000 years of Indian and Chinese Buddhism, and translations of Bodhidharma's texts, including "The Six Gates, Entering the Buddha's Path, " and "The Treatise upon the Bloodline Teaching of True Dharma."

  • Buddhism and philosophy -- Scepticism -- Congresses Is Buddhism's attitude towards accepted forms of knowledge sceptical? Are Pyrrhonian scepticism and classical Buddhist scholasticism related in their respective applications and expressions of doubt? In what way and to what degree is Critical Buddhism an offshoot of modern scepticism? Questions such as these as well as related issues are explored in the present collection, which brings together examinations of systematic doubt in the traditions of Buddhism from a variety of perspectives. What results from the perceptive observations and profound analytical insights of the seven essays is a rich and multi-faceted picture of two families of philosophical systems––scepticism and Buddhism––that seem both akin and at odds, both related and distant at the same time.

  • Gautama Buddha -- Pre-existence -- Jataka stories -- Buddhist literature, Sanskrit Haribhaṭṭa's Jātakamālā : critically edited from the manuscripts with the help of earlier work by Michael Hahn The present book contains the entire Sanskrit text of Haribhaṭṭa’s Jātakamālā (ca. AD 400), as far as it has been preserved in a few manuscripts presently accessible to us. Haribhatta’s work belongs to the Buddhist genre of “Garlands of stories about previous lives of the Buddha” and represents a rare specimen of early Sanskrit poetry written in the Campū style. Since 1904 when scholars first learned about Haribhatta’s Jātakamālā from Tibetan sources, it was assumed that the Sanskrit work has been irretrievably lost and that it has survived only in its Tibetan translation. Although in the 1970s some parts of the original Sanskrit text were discovered and later made known in various publications by the late Professor Michael Hahn, a complete and handy edition of the entire work did not appear in print. The present book aims to close this gap by offering a critical re-edition of all parts which have been previously published, and by supplying new editions of those parts which have not been published before. The Sanskrit text is fully annotated with text-critical notes and explanatory comments, and is followed by various indices and a glossary of unknown and noteworthy words.

  • Jaina philosophy -- Anekāntavāda In 'Jain Approaches to Plurality' Melanie Barbato offers a new perspective on the Jain teaching of plurality ('anekantavada') and how it allowed Jains to engage with other discourses from Indian inter-school philosophy to global interreligious dialogue. Jainism, one of the world?s oldest religions, has managed to both adapt and preserve its identity across time through its inherently dialogical outlook. Drawing on a wide range of textual sources and original research in India, Barbato analyses the encounters between Jains and non-Jains in the classical, colonial and global context. 'Jain Approaches to Plurality' offers a comprehensive introduction to 'anekantavada' as a non-Western resource for understanding plurality and engaging in dialogue.

Civilized Shamans: Buddhism in Tibetan Societies.

  • x,725p
  • 1993
  • Biddhism -- Tibet -- Religion Civilized Shamans examines the nature and evolution of religion in Tibetan societies from the ninth century up to the Chinese occupation in 1950. Geoffrey Samuel argues that religion in these societies developed as a dynamic amalgam of strands of Indian Buddhism and the indigenous spirit-cults of Tibet. Samuel stresses the diversity of Tibetan societies, demonstrating that central Tibet, the Dalai Lama's government at Lhasa, and the great monastic institutions around Lhasa formed only a part of the context within which Tibetan Buddhism matured. Employing anthropological research, historical inquiry, rich interview material, and a deep understanding of religious texts, the author explores the relationship between Tibet's social and political institutions and the emergence of new modes of consciousness that characterize Tibetan Buddhist spirituality. Samuel identifies the two main orientations of this religion as clerical (primarily monastic) and shamanic (associated with Tantric yoga). The specific form that Buddhism has taken in Tibet is rooted in the pursuit of enlightenment by a minority of the people - lamas, monks, and yogins - and the desire for shamanic services (in quest of health, long life, and prosperity) by the majority. Shamanic traditions of achieving altered states of consciousness have been incorporated into Tantric Buddhism, which aims to communicate with Tantric deities through yoga. The author contends that this incorporation forms the basis for much of the Tibetan lamas' role in their society and that their subtle scholarship reflects the many ways in which they have reconciled the shamanic and clerical orientations.

  • Buddhist sects -- Dge-lugs-pa -- Rnin-ma-pa -- Tibet -- Customs and practices Nyingma the first ever sect of Buddhism in Tibet was introduced by Padmasambhava of India and still it is in practice. The Gelug sect is the fourth in succession and it claims to have the largest number of followers not only among Tibetans but also popular in the eyes of western Buddhists beside others since more and more Gelug monks are invited to deliver lectures about Buddhism in the west. The responsible factors inter alia are perhaps the simplified and elaborate teachings about the altruistic state of mind i.e. Bodhicitta great compassion teachings on claming the mind and discerning the real (zhi Nas and Lha Thon) which carry most of the answers to the problems which the world is facing.

  • Tantras -- Criticism, interpretation, etc. -- Manuscripts, Tibetan -- China -- Dunhuang The inspiration for this volume is one of the most celebrated documents retrieved from the ancient cave library in Dunhuang: a tantric commentary in 85 folios together with its root text, and prolific marginal annotations that are not found elsewhere. It provides our most reliable and comprehensive window into the ritual and doctrinal world of the early Nyingmapa. Among much else, it offers an unparalleled early representation of Padmasambhava, a detailed presentation of fundamental Nyingma tantric views later endorsed by Rongzom and Longchenpa, and citations attributed to numerous other Nyingma tantras. A good half of the book is devoted to editorial efforts, including a discussion of how they can be applied to Tibetan literature. The Dunhuang manuscript itself is shown to be defective in several respects, including accidental loss of chapters, while centuries of scribal mishaps have deprived the commentary as traditionally transmitted of a third of its contents. Even the root text has become distorted in most popular canonical editions. By collating all twenty-one extant witnesses drawn from Dunhuang, the Tenjurs, Kanjurs both mainstream and local, and the various Ancient Tantra Collections, stemmatic analysis establishes their sometimes unexpected historical relationships. Armed with that understanding, an accurate reconstruction of the contours of both texts becomes possible for the first time in many centuries, and numerous readings of the root text earlier even than the Dunhuang ms can be recovered.

  • Dharmapala, Anagarika, 1864-1933 -- Buddhist monks -- Sri Lanka -- Biography Dharmapala is a galvanizing figure in Sri Lanka's recent history, widely regarded as the nationalist hero who saved the Sinhala people from cultural collapse and whose 'protestant' reformation of Buddhism drove monks toward increased political involvement and ethnic confrontation.

Steven Kemper re-evaluates this important figure in the light of an unprecedented number of his writings that paint a picture not of a nationalist zealot but of a spiritual seeker earnest in his pursuit of salvation.
