Item Description: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This is a new edition of one of the little manuals of Buddhism which Dr. Carus has published at intervals for several years, and of which his Gospel of Buddha is probably the best known. The Dharma, which means The Law, is not a continuous narrative, but a selection of characteristic excerpts, such as the Noble Eightfold Path, the Four Noble Truths, and similar passages, many of which Dr. Carus has turned into verse. We confess, though perhaps ours is a minority view, that we prefer the most literal prose translation in all such works. But it seems that Dr. Carus has been somewhat oppressed with the baldness and dryness of the Pali Buddhist books. It has always seemed to us that most of these books should be compared, not with the books of the New Testament, but with the brain-spun treatises of the medieval Schoolmen; they all show that they have passed through the minds of dried-up ecclesiastics, and we must seek for the source of the religious enthusiasm which made Buddhism a great missionary religion, elsewhere than in these almost algebraic treatises. We are inclined to take exception to Dr. Carus description of the Vedanta, and especially the Upanishads, as Brahmanism. Real Brahmanism consisted of the Vedic sacrificial system, lined by ancestorworship. The Upanishads, as they themselves tell us, convey the teaching, not of the Brahmans, but of the Rajputs, and sharply attack the Brahmanical system. So does the Bhagavad Gita, which declares itself to be the doctrine of the Rajput sages. Buddhism is the third Rajput revelation, and only to be understood in connection with its two predecessors. After all, it seems to us that Edwin Arnold s Light of Asia remains, far the truest Western presentation of the religion of Siddhartha the Compassionate. C. J. -The Theosophical Quarterly, Volume 5.

Item Description: Shubhi Publications, 2006. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. First. For centuries, tales of the heroic Rajputs and their exploits have drawn curious travellers to the medieval townships of Rajasthan. The first in a series of seven volumes dedicated to the Rajput settlements sprawled across the Aravalli hills and the Thar Desert, `Princely Terrain: Amber, Jaipur and Shekhawati` focuses on the Kachchwaha Rajput clan and their kingdom, Dhoondhar. Authored by various eminent scholars and architects, the essays featured in this volume encompass the evolution of the Kachchwaha architectural idiom, the creation of the capital at Jaipur and the impact that it in turn had on the later architecture of the region. The first section of the book, `Before Jaipur`, begins with the Ghat Ki Guni- located on the Jaipur-Agra Highway, this little known area served as the gateway to the Dhoondhar Empire. Also discussed is the foundation of the Dhoondhar Empire and their first capital at Amber. Replete with anecdotes about the founders of the empire, their ambitions, achievements and contributions in the Mughal era, this section provides a glimpse into the early history of Kachchwaha rule. Echoing the shift of the Kachchwaha capital from Amber to Jaipur, the second section moves from the Aravallis to the plains at its base. Featured here are essays about the conception and design of Jaipur by the then ruler, Sawai Jai Singh II. In addition to its famed palaces and havelis, this 18th century capital is also distinguished by its exceptionally astute town planning. In the light of existent controversies regarding the influence of architectural treatises such as the Vastushastra in the town`s design, this section reinterprets the genesis of Jaipur and charts its subsequent development. An article has also been devoted to Gaitor - a memorial to the glory of the Kachchwaha rulers, the site is renown for its intricately carved chhatris, each of which is dedicated to a particular ruler. The final section examines the post Jaipur scenario a period when Jaipur had come to be the landmark in town planning and a source of inspiration in the development of the nearby towns of Shekhawati. Also included are essays analysing the continuing applicability of Jaipur`s plan form viz. its translation into the contemporary settlement of Vidyadharnagar, and finally, the pressing need for conservation efforts directed at historic settlements such as Amber and Jaipur. Together, the various essays present a cohesive biography of the cities of the Kachchwahas - beginning with their origin and ending with their present avatars. Contributors Ajay Khare is Professor, Birla Institute of Technology, Mesra, Ranchi and is the author of Temple Architecture of Eastern India (Shubhi, 2005). Rima Hooja is currently the Academic Director, University of Minnesota. She has authored a number of books including Prince, Patriot, Parliamentarian (HarperCollins, 1997).
