Description

About the Book

 

Present volume is a co-operative contribution to studies in Hindu Dharma- sastra (composed in Sanskrit language). It comprises of scholarly findings of the students of Indology. The papers cover a range of topics encompassing economic, sociological, philosophical, religious and legal aspects dealt in the Dharmasastra as also their relevance in the present times.

 

We should not feel content with giving the views of Indian and foreign Indologists to demarcate the time of composition of ancient Indian literature such as Veda and Dharmasastra to pre- Mauryan and post-Mauryan period only. To quote K. Motwani : Let us review in the light of the views and opinions of few great men and women of recent times whose writings and utterances contain references to Manu and whose thinking and live have in some measure been influenced by Manu’s teachings.

 

The Dharmarsastra literature has preserved ancestry and contemporaneity both by way of interpretation and commentaries, in each century. The accreditation to Indian wisdom as the earliest source of kowledge is indisputable established by the different Law Codes available in far East/South and West of Asia as also in Europe, Conscientious thinkings of ancient saints and seers will continue to “humanise the humanity”. The present work is a tiny step to reach unto the goal.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
Mary, Australia

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt
GABRIEL-FREDERIC Daniel
Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA
