Cultural Parallels: India and Iran
Cultural Parallels: India and Iran
Description
About the Book

Resemblance creates affinity, but once we probe into the likenesses, the subtle differences in identities stand clarified. True parallels among cultures do not appear by sheer coincidence; they exist more probably due to a common origin , or a similar course of historical development , or like goals, of the analogous cultures. The attempt to seek out the commonalities and features of similitude between tow compared civilizations dominates the attention of the historian. But it is a pleasant task to ascertain the ‘notes of harmony’ and check out the discordant notes from the symphony. On one plane, it generates better social understanding; and on another plane, the realization of common elements in experiences of different peoples, awakens to the laws of eternal truth. The task of the historian-that seeking of truth, thus, stands fulfilled with such studies.

The book is the second in the series of the publications of For a for Indo-Iranian Studies (FIIRST0, and academic association dedicated to furtherance of this discipline. The first publication entitled Dialogues between Cultures: India and Iran was awarded the World Prize for the Book of the Year of the Islamic Republic of Iran 2006.

The present volume shall also make a great contribution to Indo-Iranian Studies.

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
