Item Description: D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd. New Delhi, 2000. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. 2nd edition. Ever since its discovery in AD1825, Kharavela`s Hathigumpha Inscription has had a fascinating course. It is not a royal panegyric merely; it is an epitome of history, specially of the so-called dark period -- unveiling, as it does, the political and cultural conditions that prevailed in India during the three centuries before Christ`s birth. And yet more significantly, it is the only hitherto-known document to tell the saga of its heroic author: the first historical king from India`s eastern coast to lead extensive campaigns in different directions. But for this inscription, Mahameghavahana Kharavela could never have been resurrected from oblivion. Likewise personal in character is Ashoka`s Bhabru Edict, considered as the earliest written record of Buddhist scripture and monastic organisation. For the history of Buddhism, this little document is as important as the Kharavela`s Hathigumpha Inscription is for that of Jainism. Shashi Kant`s study examines afresh these inscriptions: not just for their thematic similarity, but essentially for their crucial historicity. Going into their tenor and context, it is the first ever decipherment/interpretation of the two rare documents, with the whole Jaina and Buddhist traditions in the background. The author demolishes myths, addresses controversies and, these besides, offers convincing theories that are authenticated by recent archaeological findings. Acclaimed and favourably reviewed in India and elsewhere alike, this epigraphic study is now in its second, enlarged edition -- including a whole new section on the genesis of the Prakrit languages and the ancient Indian scripts. Together with the original epigraphs, their romanised transliteration and English translation, it holds out immense appeal to the scholars of ancient Indian history, epigraphy, archaeology, and Buddhist-and-Jaina studies.

Item Description: Bharatiya Kala Prakashan, 2013. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. 1st Edition. Home » History and Politics » Asoka: History and Inscription Asoka: History and Inscription N.C. Panda, Bharatiya Kala Prakashan, 2013, 393 p, ISBN : 9788180903373, Rs. 795.00 Rs. 715.50 (Free shipping within India only. No extras for postage and handling. ) Asoka was a versatile genius and one of the most remarkable personalities in the History of the world. He was at the same time a great conqueror and builder, statesman and administrator, religious and social reformer and philosopher and saint. King Asoka, an adherent of the common Indian religion for about nine years after his coronation, devoted himself in the pursuit and spread of the Buddhistic duties after his conversion into Buddhism in the tenth Regnal year. Besides, Buddhist traditions also represent Asoka as converted to Buddhism as an Up saka, i.e. follower of Lord Buddha and as a patron of Buddhism. According to Aoka, Dharma included avoidance of sins, ample goodness, kindness, charity, truthfulness and cleanness; sin included fierceness, harshness, anger, arrogance, envy and slanderous habit. King Asoka understood a number of virtues to constitute his Dharma. These included the least amount of sin and the greatest amount of good done to others as well as compassion, liberality, truthfulness, purity, gentleness and goodness. Good conduct, self-control, purity of thought, gratitude and firm devotion are extolled as also the absence of violence, cruelty, anger, vanity and jealousy. In addition to these, King Asoka recommended compassion, reverence, sympathy and truthfulness and condemned cruelty, irreverence, intolerance and falsehood. The virtue on which he laid the greatest emphasis is the regard for the sanctity of life. The present edition contains ten Chapters and five Appendices. In addition to these, Select Bibliography and General Index are also appended for the benefit of Researchers as well as general readers. However, the present work will definitely help the students of Ancient Indian History, Archaeology, Epigraphy and Sanskrit. Bookseller Inventory # 111118
