The Beautiful in Indian Arts
The Beautiful in Indian Arts
Description
About the Book:

This book presents a new and more comprehensive definition of the term 'beauty' in the light of the philosophical theory of individuation. According to this theory, beauty is a mark of success of an individuation of the feeling of affinity between the Sublime and the Particular. This affinity is realized in the practical activity of making something - i.e., in the artistic activity.

An attempt has been made by the authoress to interpret the major Indian Arts, viz., architecture and sculpture, painting, music and dance and literature on the basis of the concept of beauty developed by her. The approach is philosophical and not technical or historical.

About the Author:

Dr. (Mrs.) Shyamala Gupta, Ph.D. of Bombay University, formerly lecturer in philosophy in Ramnarain Ruia College, Bombay, is at present a senior lecturer in Kamala Nehru College (University of Delhi), New Delhi. Her field of specializing being Aesthetics, she worked on this subject as a research fellow in Indian Institute of Advanced Study, Simla, during 1966-67. She proposes to publish in soon her book "Aesthetics and the Sublime" which presents an entirely new approach to the problem of art and beauty.

Testimonials

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
