Foreword

It is a matter of great pleasure to place in the hands of scholars the present volume which contains thirty research papers which were presented and discussed in the National seminar on Dharmasastra and Social Awareness at the centers of advanced study in Sanskrit University of Poona in 1994.

These articles are the best examples to show how the Dharmasastra literature pervades various aspects of Indian Social and cultural life. The Dharmasastra literature attempts to bring discipline in individual and social life in terms of values in which they believed in those days. Some values have been universal while others kept on changing in accordance with time. The impact of Vedic culture can never be denied in the process of the Dhamasastra’s attempt to bring order to the society.

Of all types of literature in Sanskrit the Dharmasastra literature is very close to Indian Society. The present volume is an attempt to highlight the social awareness reflected in the Dharmasastra literature. After late Mahamahopadhyaya P.V. Kane hardly there has been any serious attempt to project the contribution of Dharmasastra to Indian social and cultural life. It is hoped that the present volume will inspire serious scholars to initiate serious researched Dharmasastra so that the best and relevant can be given to the modern society.

Indian Books Centre deserves out appreciation for bringing out this volume. I hope the scholars in the field will welcome it.

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

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,
