About this Item: Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 2009. Softcover. Condition: New. When someone mentions rituals we usually think of religious rituals such as prayer, puja, marriage ceremonies, sermons and so on. However, if we introspect a little, we realize that we spend most of our life in performing rituals of one type or another. Most of our activities from morning till night are ritualistic. This book explains how rituals are closely connected with verse, music and dance. It asserts that like music and dance rituals belong to the world of rhythm. By ritual we mean any stylized behaviour that recurs. Rituals abound in all walks of life: social intercourse, military affairs, law and politics, education and so forth. In most rituals rhythm is manifest and loud. In a few rituals which have a slow tempo, some analysis is necessary to detect rhythmic patterns. The author beautifully portrays the types of rituals and the rhythms they generate from the babbling of a child to a band parade or the chanting of a mantra. He explains the initiation and completion of patterns that form the rhythm. This book shows that like music and dance, rituals belong to the world of rhythm. A discussion on ritual instinct is given at greater length. The book further proceeds to ‘Hermeneutics’ or the science of interpretation and explains rituals in their light. There are many technical words from music, dance and religion. These have been explained in the text. A glossary which can be used for ready reference has been provided. The notes which have been added after each chapter are meant for those who would like to know more about the relevant topic.Printed Pages: 164. Seller Inventory # 102496

About this Item: Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 2015. Softcover. Condition: New. Second Edition. Om is the most sacred mantra in major Indic religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. It symbolizes affirmation, benediction and peace, and is used ritualistically in prayers, invocations and ceremonies, religious as well as secular. It is also a magical symbol beyond compare and is regarded as a vehicle of attaining liberation (moksha). Not only this, at the highest level, it is identified with Brahman, the Ultimate Reality. Using the Vedas, Upanishads, Yoga, Tantra and several religious texts as his sources, the author describes a plethora of interpretations of this mystical monosyllable which has since time immemorial captivated its worshipers, put yogis into trance, made Tantra practitioners ecstatic, and sent its changers into religious frenzy. The author also explains secular interpretations of Om in linguistics, psychology and structural analysis.Printed Pages: 192. Seller Inventory # 102094

About this Item: Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 2014. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. Einstein's theory of relativity which appeared in the early twentieth century. Shook many fundamental concepts in physics such as space, time, mass, energy and gravitation. However, it led to many misconceptions. Lay persons often equated it with the concept of non-absolutism, relativity or relativism which is found in many philosophical systems.Unfortunately, the theory spawned many misconceptions. Lay persons asserted, "Everything is relative", "You can go back in time". Those who were familiar with the western as well as eastern philosophy of relativism or relativity or non absolutism claimed, "Our ancestors talked about relativity long back" or "Our forebears had anticipated Einstein long ago." Most of these misperceptions stem form the fact that Einstein uses the word "relativity" for his theory in physics. Undoubtedly there are many theories of philosohical relativity. They assert on-absolutism of knowledge. Most of these theories are idealist which deny objective cognition and content that human knowledge does not reflect the objective world.In Jaina relativism called anekantavada or syadvada one finds a rare combination of non absolutism and objectivity. Anekantavada is one of the main pillars of Jaina philosophy and religion. It believes in rationality, objectivity and like science relies on empirical evidence.Printed Pages: 171.

About this Item: Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 2012. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. Buddhism is a religion, but not a dogma. Its agnosticism and rational outlook has attracted many western scientists. There is abundant literature on similarities between Buddhism and Science. Two theories, relativity theory and quantum theory shook the very foundation of physics in the 20th century. Of the two, quantum theory reveals a truly mysterious sub-atomic world with its mind-boggling phenomena. For example, such entities as electrons, protons and photons (light particles)or waves as the occasion demands. This is called matter-wave duality. In Buddhist philosophy scholars have found a doctrine called catuskoti which is astonishingly similar to matter-wave duality. violate the Aristotelion laws of thought. The book analyzes two apparently contradictory parallels; (1) similarity between Buddhist philosophy and scientific thought, and (ii) resemblance between mystical catuskoti and mysterious matter-wave duality. The book also tries to dispel misconceptions harboured by lay persons about quantum theory.Printed Pages: 430. Seller Inventory # 102345

He also discusses such fascinating topics as primes, perfect numbers, inaccessible numbers and many other unsolved problems relating to the treacherous terrain of infinity, which have baffled mathematicians and philosophers alike.

About this Item: Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd., 2004. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. In this book the author discusses the places of science in rituals and mantras. Using structural analysis he shows that rituals in general, whether religious, political, social or otherwise have common structural patterns. These patterns are shared by poetry, music,dance and gymanastics, but not by language. Consideration of animal rituals and pathological rituals leads him to propose a general theory which unifies all rituals-like activities. Printed Pages: 283. Seller Inventory # 90266

About this Item: Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd., 2004. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. In this book the author discusses the places of science in rituals and mantras. Using structural analysis he shows that rituals in general, whether religious, political, social or otherwise have common structural patterns. These patterns are shared by poetry, music,dance and gymanastics, but not by language. Consideration of animal rituals and pathological rituals leads him to propose a general theory which unifies all rituals-like activities. Printed Pages: 283. Seller Inventory # 90266

About this Item: Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd., 2012. Softcover. Condition: New. First edition. Buddhism is a religion, but not a dogma. Its agnosticism and rational outlook has attracted many western scientists. There is abundant literature on similarities between Buddhism and Science. Two theories, relativity theory and quantum theory shook the very foundation of physics in the 20th century. Of the two, quantum theory reveals a truly mysterious sub-atomic world with its mind-boggling phenomena. For example, such entities as electrons, protons and photons (light particles)or waves as the occasion demands. This is called matter-wave duality. In Buddhist philosophy scholars have found a doctrine called catuskoti which is astonishingly similar to matter-wave duality. violate the Aristotelion laws of thought. The book analyzes two apparently contradictory parallels; (1) similarity between Buddhist philosophy and scientific thought, and (ii) resemblance between mystical catuskoti and mysterious matter-wave duality. The book also tries to dispel misconceptions harboured by lay persons about quantum theory. Printed Pages: 434. Seller Inventory # 67026

About this Item: Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., 2007. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. This book is about numbers and so many questions relating to them. What is the nature of numbers? Are they discovered or invented? What is mystical about them? Mathematicians develop a hierarchy of numbers in which mysterious dichotomies appear. For example, the integar 5 is not the same as the rational 5 which in turn is different from the real 5. The author explains how this conceptual maze does not affect the layperson`s arithmetic. He also discusses such fascinating topics as primes, perfect numbers, inaccessible numbers and many other unsolved problems relating to the treacherous terrain of infinity, which have baffled mathematicians and philosophers alike.
