Technical Terms In Sanskrit Literary Criticism and Aesthetics
Technical Terms In Sanskrit Literary Criticism and Aesthetics
Description
Preface

At the time when we were students, we constantly felt the need for a ready reference, a handbook that would give us in a nutshell the idea about a certain technical term in literary criticism. Whenever we needed to look up such a term, we had to undergo a lengthy process of searching through a number of alamkara texts. As a result, we were much heartened when this project was taken up under the DSA. Originally, it was intended that we should work as a team, with the Late Prof. Rabisankar Banerjee as Principal Investigator. At his sudden and untimely demise, all work was thrown out of gear, and it was quite some time before it could be taken up again. Hence this delay in completing the task.

Our major objective in implementing this project was, as we have already stated, to provide a handy source of reference in literary criticism and aesthetics, not for experts, but for students principally, and also for people from other disciplines, as well as for Sanskrit scholars from other specialisations. This work, we hope, will save them the trouble of hunting through numerous tomes to find what they are really seeking. This kind of book is fairly common in other languages, e.g., English. But such works about Sanskrit literature are rare, and mostly written in languages other than English. We hope that this work will act as a Kosa of older times, and be able to cater to the needs of scholars and students both in India and outside. It was a difficult undertaking, as we had no proper model to work on, and with the loss of Prof. Banerjee, we have been forced to change the technique of work. Add to it our lack of experience, and there should have been nothing but disaster. But we have, we hope, managed to salvage something out of the ashes, and turned out a reasonably successful Kosa.

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
