About this Item: Penguin Books, 2000. Softcover. Condition: New. First edition. The several Brahmin hands who wrote the Laws of Manu drew on jurisprudence, philosophy and religion to create an extraordinary, encyclopaedic model of how life should be lived, in public and in private, by Untouchables as well as by priests and kings, by women as well as by men. The Sanskrit text was first translated into English in 1794, and translations into other European languages swiftly followed. For Nietzsche the humane wisdom of Manu far surpassed that of the New Testament; for the British Raj it seemed to be the perfect tool with which to rule the Hindu. No understanding of modern India is possible without it, and in the richness of its ideas, its aphoristic profundity and its relevance to universal human dilemmas, Manu stands beside the great epics, the Mahãbhãrata and the Rãmãyana. Many commentators find Manu contradictory and ambiguous; others perceive a clear thematic integrity; and the argument is renewed by Wendy Doniger and Brian K. Smith in their illuminating introduction. Wendy Doniger provides a landmark translation, the first authoritative English rendering this century. It is also the first to set the unadulterated text in narrative form, making it accessible and enjoyable both to specialist scholars and to a wider audience. Printed Pages: 368.

About this Item: Cosmo Publications, 2004. Softcover. Condition: New. First edition. In Hindu mythology, Manu is the progenitor of the human race. He is thus the lord and guardian of the living, and his name is attached to the most important codification of Hindu law, the Manava-dharma-sastra (Laws of Manu). Compiled by Brahmanic legalists sometime between 200 BC and AD 200, this code is the earliest of the Vedic texts called the dharma-sutras, manuals on dharma, or duty. Unlike earlier texts, which focus primarily on knowledge of Brahman and self, the code of Manu emphasizes duty in the social context. It defines the specific duties and responsibilities of the individual in terms of varna, or class Brahman, Kshatriya, Vaisya, or Sudra and asrama, or state of life student, householder, forest hermit, or total ascetic classifications that remain fundamental to Hinduism to the present day. This text by Buhler since its first appearance has remained the most authentic and accepted English translation. The text has, for the first time, been rendered in a narrative form, making it an enjoyable reading for the serious scholars as well as the general readers. Printed Pages: 399.

About this Item: Cosmo Publications, 2004. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. The legal literature of the Hindus is divisible into three classes: the Dharma-S tras or Aphorisms of Law of the different Schools, the Dharma S stras or the Codes of Law attributed generally to names of sages well-known in sacerdotal history, and the Commentaries and Treatises [ Digests ] by Hindu jurisprudentes which cover a period of about ten centuries. Amongst such Codes the position of the Codes of Manu and Y j avalkya is pre-eminent. The former is supposed to be the foundation of the whole orthodox system of Hindu Law. Its authority is regarded as supreme by both the lay and legal literature of Hindu India, and as such it occupies a unique position in the legal history of the land. The latter is the practical legal system binding on the majority of the Hindus. Code Y j avalkya has in effect, though not in name, superseded the Code of Manu. This work, perhaps the only one of authority, which makes a comparative and contrasting study of the two systems. The work incorporates the Tagore Law Lectures delivered by the author at the University of Calcutta Printed Pages: 355. Seller Inventory # 4954

Its developments are yet to ascertain to the present forms. There are more than one Upanishads. According to ?Katha? Upanishad the knowledge of Brahma depends upon certain process of thinking, that is to say, it is a derivative of philosophies. Hence, the Vedantas, are useful for philosophic approach of life.
