Shri Panini (Makers of Indian Literature)
Description
About the Book:

Panini, the greatest grammarian of the world, belonged to the period between 5th and 4th century B.C. He is indeed the first grammarian to go deeper into the conventional speech units known as words and recognize the basic elements of meaning which combine into different meaningful units. Thus his Vyakarna Astadhyayi contains not only an analysis of speech units into their ultimate constituents but also lays down rules of their combinations leading to a variety of linguistic expressions. The most noteworthy aspect of the entire mechanism in the Paninian workshop is economy. Economy reigns supreme in his grammar. The foremost achievement of the Gandhar grammarian Panini thus consists of a finite set of rules for explaining an infinite number of speech units. Linguists all over the world are impressed by this method of language description successfully implemented by Panini. Due to his workmanship of a very high rank his work emerges as a perfect model of sutra mode of composition. In this way, apart from being a valuable historical document Panini's grammar has provided a model of language description which treats both matter and mind together.

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.
