GANESA (Ganesha): Images from India and Indonesia
GANESA (Ganesha): Images from India and Indonesia
Description
About the Book:

Ganesa is one of the most important deities of Hinduism and there is no dearth of books on this god. Most of these books deal with the origin, antiquity, history and mythology of the elephant-headed god and some with his images in Indian and elsewhere. From Japan to Central Asia where Ganesa images exist. Indonesia is the country next only to India where have been found the largest number of the ancient icons of the god and where the worship of this deity is still a living tradition. The present work, representing the Ph.D. thesis of the author, is the first serious attempt to present a comparative study of the images of the god in India and Indonesia during the early historic and medieval periods. It carries further the work of late Shri C. Sivaramamurti to study the geographical and chronological factors in the iconography of Ganesa in the two countries and traces the origin and development of certain iconographic traits of Ganesa images from the country of their inspiration and the different regions thereof. It covers Ganesa images in different media - stone terracotta and metal and also brings to light many interesting images of the deity from Indonesia for the first time.

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
