Description
Foreword

It is not an uncommon experience that in higher education circles in India Professor S. M. Katre and the Deccan College, as it took reincarnation as a Postgraduate and Research Institute in 1939, considered as more or less synonymous. In any case, Prof. Katre surly belongs to the category of “first among eduals”. The selfless and dedicated services spread over three decades rendered by Professors S.M. Katre, H.D. Sankalia and Irawati Karve, in addition to their personal academic academic achievements and their advaitic bent of mind which cut across boundaries of region, religion and language, transformed the Deccan College into a world renowned centre for heritage studies in a short span of a quarter century.

Using the Deccan College as his spring-board for action, Prof. Katre not only laid firm foundations for linguistic studies in the country in the country but made all-round efforts to develop at the Deccan College various infrastructural facilities required for a research centre. It was during his tenure as the Director from 1942 to 19871 that the Institute saw the construction of new buildings for academic and academic and residential purposes and also enlargement of academic programmes. Another lasting contribution of Prof. Katre is the planning of a monumental lexicographical project entitled “An Encylopaedic Dictionary of Sanskrit on Historical Principles”.

It was therefore in the fitness of things that in the academic year 2005-2006 the Deccan College celebrated the Birth Centenary of Prof. Katre in a befitting way. As part of these celebrations we organized a national level seminar for reviewing recent trends in Sanskrit, Lexicography and Linguistics--branches of language study which were dear to Prof. Katre and in which he himself made seminal contributions. This was a two-day seminar (19-20 January 2006) in which leading scholars from different parts of the country as well as the Deccan College faculty and editorial staff participated. The proceedings of this seminar are now being placed before readers as a separate volume. I thank my colleagues Drs. K.S. Nagaraja, V.P. Bhatta, Sonal Kulkarni-Joshi and Pratibha Pingle, for readily agreeing to take up the editing of papers presented at the seminar and overseeing the printing of the volume.

I would like to take this opportunity to express my sense of gratitude to the following institutions for extending financial support to organize this seminar: Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India, New Delhi; University Grants Commission, New Delhi; Central Institute of Indian Language, Mysore and its branch Western Regional Language Centre located on the Deccan College campus; and Rashtriya Sanskrit Sansthan, New Delhi. I would also like to thank the academic and non- teaching staff of the Deccan College for their assistance in organizing this seminar.

It is true that Professor katre is no more with us, but this is so only in a physical sense. His amiable personality and smiling face, his example of total dedication to the cause of the Institute, and his range and depth of scholarship will continue to faculty and students alike at the Deccan College.

I've been happy with prior purchases from this site!
Priya, USA
Thank you. You are providing an excellent and unique service.
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.
