Transmission of the Mahabharata Tradition: Vyasa and Vyasids (Studies 

in Indian and Asian Civilizations)
Transmission of the Mahabharata Tradition: Vyasa and Vyasids (Studies in Indian and Asian Civilizations)
Description
About the Book:

The Mahabharata is the mighty Ganga taking its rise in the lofty Himalaya of a great poet's genius: its crystal clear waters in the course of their flow are joined by the rivers and streams of other legends, episodes and philosophical thinking, until incorporating and assimilating all these tributaries the original serene stream transforms itself into a mighty torrent flowing through the plains of time fertilizing the fields of literatures in Sanskrit, prakrit and modern Indian Languages: and, helping to carryon the trade of thought with exchange of ideas in the whole of India and outside, and keeping at the same time its sanctifying character it passes on to the Ocean of Eternity. The task that the author has set for himself is to analyze and examine, to the extent hat is possible, and the waters the tributaries have brought to the holy river.

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.
Bernd, Spain
