Item Description: Wisdom Publications,U.S., United States, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Brand New Book. From the Buddha in ancient India to a nun in modern-day Los Angeles, Lives Lived, Lives Imagined crosses time, traditions, and cultures to present fascinating depictions of lives lived on the Buddhist path. Buddhist biographies come to life in many forms; they come from known poets and anonymous compilers; they are told by bards and even enacted by performers; they may also be autobiographies, either public or secret. Equally diverse have been the purposes they have served - as models for emulation, as origin stories for a particular community or lineage, or as narrative explications of doctrine. This book, a collection of papers presented at a conference at the University of Oxford, presents a multifaceted, multitradition portrait of Buddhist biographies. Part 1 deals with biographies of the Buddha, investigating Chinese and Pali sources and the Sanskrit dramatizations of Asvaghosa. Part 2 contains modern Buddhist life stories, including a rare autobiography from Burma. Part 3 explores the Tibetan tradition, including such well-known figures as Milarepa, Shakya Chogden, and Karmapa Mikyo Dorje. Together, these biographies and studies reveal the rich diversity of Buddhism s myriad incarnations over its long history and the dynamic scope of its thought and practice.

Item Description: Sundeep Prakashan, 1981. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. . (illustrator). First edition. 19 x 25 cm. The study of Indian bronzes has always been a fascinating subject for the scholars, yet the bronzes from eastern India which occupy a conspicuous position in Indian art has often been a neglected field. The subject was therefore, chosen by the author to make a comprehensive study which he did so meticulously that the University of Calcutta awarded him a Ph.D. Degree for the work. The work not only reveals the skill of the craftsmen of the past but a civilization that was at its height during the contemporary age. The study has further brought out the socio-cultural base of this form of art which once formed a part of the curricula of the famous University of Nalanda for its students from India and abroad. The East thus was once one of the main centres of metal casting and a source of inspiration for the craftsmen of India as is evident from the ancient literature. The abundant availability of the bronzes during the Pala period and their high quality speaks of their heritage. After its initial adherence to the earlier school for a short period there developed a full blooded Eastern Indian School renowned for its graceful charm and sensuousness. Due to the rise of Vajrayana cult in Buddhism patronized by the royalty and the elite the extensive pantheon of Buddhist Gods and Goddesses grew adding a new dimension to the iconoplastic art. The process of creating unmatching objects of art continued through generations-far more than three centuries and it oscillates between the abstract and the reality of form. With the change of the ruling dynasty -the art died out being overpowered by a debased classicism. In its first chapter the development of metal art in India has been narrated with a reference to the technique involved. In chapter two the development and growth of the metal art in eastern India has been narrated and has been broadly divided into three periods, i.e. Early Pala, Classical Pala and Late Pala. How the art form developed and flowered to its best has been analysed with reference to specimens illustrated in the book. The East Indian School has made a lasting influence on the metal art of Orissa, Madhya Pradesh etc. and surrounding countries like Nepal, Tibet, Burma, Ceylon, Java, Siam and that has been studied in chapter three. Several literary texts contain evidences relating to the casting of images in metal and that has been elaborately discussed in chapter four. The book has been illustrated by more than sixty plates and it has further been enriched by a classified list of selected metal sculptures housed in different museums of India and abroad. Contents Chap. I : INTRODUCTION : Metal and metal casting in India: Early remains : Height of technique attained in the Harappan Culture: Continuity of the tradition: Reference to metal in the Vedic literature: Possibility of the existence of metal image in the Vedic age: The epic tradition: The iron figure of Bhima: Mention of metal images in the early Sanskrit texts, Agnipurana, Vishnupurana etc.: Actual finds of metal sculptures in Eastern India: The Sultanganj image: Sarvani image of the Khadgas: The monasteries as centres of metal casting: Nature of metal sculptures.

Metal sculptures in early phase: The centres of metal casting: The Buddhist monasteries: The bronzes of Sultanganj, Kurkihar, Nalanda: Metal Sculptures in Eastern India of the 10th-12th centuries A.D.: Buddhist, Brahmanical.

Item Description: Wisdom Publications, Boston, USA, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. First Edition. From the Buddha in ancient India to a nun in modern-day Los Angeles, Lives Lived, Lives Imagined crosses time, traditions, and cultures to present fascinating lives and depictions of lives of those on the Buddhist path. Buddhist biographies come to life in many forms: they come from known poets and anonymous compilers; they are told by bards and even enacted by performers; they may also be autobiographies, either public or secret. Equally diverse have been the purposes they have served-as models for emulation, as origin stories for a particular community or lineage, or as narrative explications of doctrine. This book, a collection of papers presented at a conference at the University of Oxford, presents a multifaceted, multitradition portrait of Buddhist biographies. Part 1 deals with biographies of the Buddha, investigating Chinese and Pali sources and the Sanskrit dramatizations of Asvaghosa. Part 2 contains modern Buddhist life stories, including a rare autobiography from Burma. Part 3 explores the Tibetan tradition, including such well-known figures as Milarepa, Shakya Chogden, and Karmapa Miky?Dorje. Together, these biographies and studies reveal the rich diversity of Buddhism's myriad incarnations over its long history and the dynamic scope of its thought and practice. Printed Pages: 352.

Item Description: Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt Ltd, New Delhi, 1971. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Second. The most universally adored of all the Hindu gods, Ganesa, the 'Lord of the Ganas' also occupies a pride of place among the gods of the Hindu pantheon. It was because of his popularity as a magnificent god that he was known by the various epithets Vinayaka, Vighnesvara, Siddhidata, Heramba, etc., which stress his benevolent nature and his other names viz., Vakra-tunda, Ekadanta, Akhu-ratha, Lambodara, Gajanana, etc. connote his unusual physical and other attributes. In her illuminating study, Ganesa, A Monograph on the Elephant-faced God, Alice Getty has covered not only the various iconographical features of this god, but has marshalled all the available evidence and shown how the cult of Ganapati originated and spread into not only the various parts of India but into foreign lands as well. The book is divided into eight chapters besides an Introduction by Alfred Foucher. The first four chapters deal respectively with the Origin of Ganesa and Ganesa in Indian literature, Ganesa in Iconography from the Hindu texts and images, Ganesa in Hindu sculpture and paintings and Ganesa in Buddhism. The remaining four chapters deal with Ganesa in the countries neigHard Coverouring India such as Burma, Siam, Indo-China, Java, Borneo, China and Japan. In this important work of scholarship and research, Alice Getty has collected a mass of carefully arranged information on Ganesa. This monograph is, therefore, indispensable as a work of reference for the scholars interested in Indian iconography and religion.

Auszug: Bhikkhuni (Pali; Sanskrit: Bhikshuni) sind buddhistische Nonnen. Der Nonnenorden ist fast ebenso alt wie der Mönchsorden der Männer (siehe Bhikkhu/Bhikshu), steht aber dennoch in dessen Schatten. Der vorbereitende Stand der Novizin wird Samaneri genannt. Der Nonnenorden stellt die zweite Säule des Sangha, also der Gemeinschaft der Dharma-Praktizierenden dar, bzw. einen Zweig der 'Vierfachen Gemeinschaft' von Mönchen, Nonnen, Laienanhängern und Laienanhängerinnen. Das Verständnis von Sangha ist in den verschiedenen buddhistischen Traditionen vielfältig: Während man im südlichen Theravada-Buddhismus, etwa in Sri Lanka, Thailand, Burma oder Kambodscha, sowie im tibetischen Buddhismus darunter heute lediglich Mönche und in Ausnahmen auch Nonnen versteht, zählen in Taiwan, Korea und Vietnam starke Nonnenorden schon von Beginn an zum Sangha. Die Regeln des buddhistischen Mönchtums, - die Buddhistischen Ordensregeln - die im Vinayapitaka festgehalten sind, weisen für Bhikkunis einige Besonderheiten auf. Um als Bhikkhuni ordiniert werden zu können, muss ein Lebensalter von mindestens 20 Jahren erreicht sein. Die Nonne, die die Ordination leitet (Pavattini), muss ihrerseits seit mindestens zwölf Jahren Bhikkhuni sein. Fünf weitere Nonnen müssen der Ordination beiwohnen, fünf anwesende Mönche müssen sie bestätigen. Während für Mönche 227 Regeln des Vinaya gelten, gelten für Bhikkhunis 311 Regeln, was auch in der etwas anderen Kapiteleinteilung der Ordensregeln (Patimokkha) für Bikkhuni begründet ist. Die acht Garudharmas (strikte Regeln) unterstellen den Nonnenorden dem Mönchsorden, so dass eine Bhikkhuni auch einen bedeutend jüngeren Bhikkhu ehrerbietig zu grüßen hat. Während männliche Ordensangehörige drei Gewänder besitzen dürfen, dürfen die Frauen fünf Gewänder besitzen. Während es für Männer zwei Ordinationen gibt, die Novizenordination als Samanera und die Vollordination (Upasampada) als Bhikkhu, gibt es für Frauen den Stand der Samaneri (ebenfalls mit zehn Verpflichtun 36 pp. Deutsch.

Item Description: White Lotus, Rangoon, 1970. Softcover/Paperback. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: no dj. First. 240 x 155. The materials used in this monograph are mostly archaeological, but also include archaeologically substantiated literary sources so as to cover all relevant inscriptions, sculptures, paintings and monuments known within Burma. Apart from new materials that were hitherto unknown, many new interpretations of old materials have been proposed. This text reveals the prevalence of the Sarvastivada in Old Prome, the definite existence of Mahayanist and Tantric texts in the monastic libraries of Upper Burma, and the unrecognized representations of gods and goddesses belonging to the Mahayana tradition and its allied pantheons. The text also establishes that the Samanakuttakas, are identical with the Aris, both branded heterodox sects. It indicates the time and place whence the Mahayana and its allied cults penetrated Burma, as well as their continued existence long after the glorious reformation of Anawrahta in 1057-1058 AD. There are sufficient indications that the numerous followers of these sects played a significant role in the religious life of Upper Burma. The six chapters deal with: 1. Sarvastivada in Ancient Prome; 2. Sanskrit Inscriptions: Sanskrit Buddhist Texts; 3. Gods and Goddesses of Northern Buddhism; 4. The Ari sect and the Samankuttakas; 5. Testimony of Buddhist Monks; and 6. When and whence did Sanskrit Buddhism penetrate Burma?. No. book. Bookseller Inventory # I760
