Series: Vol. IV)
Architecture of Manasara: (Manasara Series: Vol. IV ) Series: Vol. IV)
Description
From the Jacket:

Architecture of Manasara is the fourth volume in the Manasara series. Here the Sanskrit text collated from eleven manuscripts is rendered in English with as much conformity to the original as possible. All aspects of architecture as taught and practiced by the ancient builders whose epics on stone in various parts of India can be seen even today are described in this book. The remarkable attention to detail, which was the outstanding trait in the forgotten architects of the past emerges lucidly in this concise treatise, where every topic-be it the unit of measurement choice of site analysis of soil strength of building materials proportion among the various components, planning of villagers or town, design and construction of single -storeyed houses or multi-storeyed, furniture for use or sculpture for ornament though presented in an encapsulated form rivers the reader's attention by its dazzling illumination.

One of the basic needs of man is shelter. All those interested or engaged in the design of building for different purpose like housing the Gods, people, trade, transport, machines and weapons shall find this book a source of inspiration for their activities.

Thiru, UK
Thank You very much for this wonderful opportunity for helping people to acquire the spiritual treasures of Hinduism at such an affordable price.
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
