Item Description: B.R. Publishing Corporation, 2000. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. First edition. The Jataka, one of the books of Khuddaka Nikaya of the Pali Canon (Tripitaka) has in all 547 stories of the past lives of Gautama the Buddha. The Jataka stories, being full of wit and humour, worldly wisdom, moral lessons, and pious legends of semi-historical nature, were very helpful in popularising the Dhamma amongst the masses. As such, they were not only handed down orally from generation to generation but were also carved or painted on the walls of the Buddhist monuments. As in India, so also in other Buddhist countries, the Jataka stories decorate the temples This book presents for the first time a comprehensive survey of the influence of the Jatakas on art and literature in India, in South- East Asia, and in Europe. The study begins with the description of all the Jatakas found in sculpture or paintings in India. In the next chapter, Bhadant Anand Kausalyayan, who translated all the Jatakas from Pali to Hindi, shows how the Jataka stones are a literature for, and of the masses. The other aspects covered in this study are Hymns in the Jatakas, Performing Arts, The Jataka Influence on the Literature of Indo-China, The Influence of the Jatakas on European Literature, and The Jatakas and the Modern Buddhist. Contents:- Preface 1. The Jatakas in Indian Art/D.C. Ahir 2. Jataka Stories : Literature for, and of, the Masses/Bhadant Anand Kausalyayan 3. Jataka Birth Tales - The Jungle Touched by a Magical Wand/Jeannine Auboyer 4. Hymns in the Jatakas/Asha Das 5. Performing Arts as Revealed in the Jatakas/D.K. Barua 6. The Jatakas and The Literature of Buddhist Indo-China/Ginette Terral Martini (Translated from the French/Dilip Kumar Banerjee) 7. Influence of Buddhist Jatakas on European Literature/Bhikkhu Silabhadra 8. The Jatakas and the Modern Buddhist/Trevor Ling Printed Pages: 100. Bookseller Inventory # 7583

Item Description: Bharatiya Kala Prakashan, Delhi, 2005. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. First edition. Early Buddhist monastic establishments of South India between 2nd century B.C., and 5th century A.D. were embellished with sculptural paneis depicting the life events of the Buddha and his former births. These visual narratives were created with a view to educate the pilgrims, patrons and also general public about the morals and ethics contained in them. Though the sculptural panels depicted with Jatakas recovered from various sites were published in different journals and excavation reports, some of them were left untouched and unidentified perhaps due to lack of interest and research on this particular aspect. The book entitled Jatakas in South Indian Art is first of its kind in which the author has made a sincere attempt to corroborate the panels with original textual sources and identified the Jatakas untouched by the earlier scholars. Fresh discoveries are also incorporated. An attempt is also made to compare the Jatakas of South India with those found in the North Indian sites in order to obtain a clear picture regarding the distribution and their diffusion to distant lands. Attention is also drawn to the ethics and morals from the Jatakas. The book critically examines already published data in addition to the fresh discoveries reported from South Indian sites. The publication is thoroughly supported by good illustrations. CONTENTS: Foreword; Preface; List of Illustrations; 1. Buddhism in South India 2. Jatakas in Buddhist Literature and Art 3. Jatakas in South Indian Art 4. Conclusion Printed Pages: 244. Bookseller Inventory # 906

Item Description: Bharatiya Kala Prakashan, Delhi, 2009. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. First edition. The Buddhist Monastic establishments across the Indian sub-continent were richly embellished with the sculptural panels of visual narratives. The narrative art mainly centered around the great events in the life time of Buddha and his Previous Birth Stories. In the early centuries of Christian era, the Kings and Donors gave more preference to the Previous Birth Stories of the Enlightened One as they convey morals and ethics, useful to the society. The book entitled Jatakas in Buddhist Thought and Art is the first of its kind in which the author attempted to identify the Jatakas depicted in the panels and paintings noticed in various Buddhist monasteries with the canonical and non-canonical literary works. While doing so, he discovered some Jataka panels, left untouched by earlier scholars. The author has also highlighted the evolutionary stages of the art in sculptured panels and paintings from monoscenic to the sequential continuous narrative mode right from the Bharhut to Amaravati School of Art and its influence as reflected in the paintings at Ajanta and carvings at Kanheri and Aurangabad rock-cut caves. The book gives a vivid picture of the diffusion and distribution of Jataka narratives in the Indian sub-continent. The publication is well supplemented by neat photographs and drawings Printed Pages: 553. Bookseller Inventory # 930
