About this Item: Aryan Books International, New Delhi, India, 2001. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. The present work is an attempt to outline the essential features of the cultural History of Prayaga from varied sources with a view to bringing out that magnetic quality of the Tirtharaja which has been attracting multitudes from far and near. The greatness of Prayaga, perceptible since the Vedic period, is adumbrated in the Epic-Puranic literature, and is attested by epigraphic records, Buddhist and Jaina texts, foreign (Chinese, Muslim and European) accounts, treatises on tirtha, and vernacular literature which received and developed further this great traditional lore about Prayaga. Archaeological evidences have also been accumulated to a considerable extent. The task of sifting and interpreting this immense material, contained inter alia in the numerous and varied texts is not easy. The most ticklish problem faced by the researcher consists of imparting the traditional pronouncements an interpretation intelligible to the modern world but without prejudice to their original import. As such the researcher is inevitably faced with innumerable odds. The success or failure of the present work is, therefore, to be viewed in the Context of these inherent difficulties and predicaments. If India had first attracted the attention of the West as the land of temples and Sadhus, her tirthas and melas pulling huge tides of humanity from far and near by their religio-cultural power also captured the imagination of the world in a big way It is a pity that Prayaga, traditionally the king of tirthas and the site of world's largest fair, could not be given an authentic cultural history of its own before the present work. This work essays the difficult task of distinguishing the religio-cultural lore of Prayaga from the outrageous domain of mysteries and wonders which it was initially consigned to and also the gazetteer-like uncritical approach of numerous journalistic works which do not rise above the level of a popular guide. The topical rather than exhaustive approach of the work taking into account all the aspects of Prayaga's religio-cultural personality preserves the spirit and depth of genuine research. The bite is not too big to be chewed. It probes the questions of sacred geography, Subtirthas, historicity of Aksayavata (the eternal fig tree) and religious suicide besides giving a critical and authenticated account of the ritual practices and a source-based history of the Kumbha Mela, including its various dimensions. The deep textual study, field work and handling of the relevant archeo-epigraphic material makes the Book both stimulating and instructive Inclusion of evocative and rare illustrations further add to the use-value of the Endeavour.Printed Pages: 200 with 6 maps & figures & 21 halftone illustrations.

About this Item: Abhinav Publications/Kaveri Books, New Delhi, India. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. Maharana Kumbha of Mewar, who was the preceptor of Medieval Indian Renaissance, built his greatest monument, the Kirttistambha in the fort of Chittorgadh (Rajasthan) between 1440 and 1460 A.D. It is generally known by the misnomer ‘Vijaya Stambha’ (The Tower of Victory), though it was not built to commemorate a military event. The author has examined here the fundamental question : what was the ‘idea’ which led to its incarnation in such a beautiful ‘form’, under such headings as ‘Mahameru’, ‘Vedic Skambha’, ‘Trailokya-Mahagrha’, and ‘Garuda and Janardana Dhvaja Stambha’; enumerated the classical background of this thought and philosophy; and traced the various stages of its development, and representation thereof in stone. It has been architecturally studied and the sculptures of Hindu gods and goddesses which make it an ‘Illustrated Dictionary of Hindu Mythology’ and a unique work on medieval Iconography, as much as on Architecture, have been identified, Texts and translation of epigraphs including the Kirttistambha-Prasasti (which was carved on four stone-slabs); colophon-prasastis of his literary works; and Vastu-texts on Kirttistambhas have been given in 12 appendices. The text is adequately illustrated by 16 figures and 48 b&w plates. Printed Pages: 254. Seller Inventory # 107907
