    Art, Beauty and Creativity by: Shyamala Gupta $55.00

    When the 18th century German philosopher, A.G. Baumgarten first introduced’ Aesthetics’ as an academic discipline to deal with the philosophy of beauty, he couldn’t possibly have anticipated the controversies that have lately been raised by logical positivists, analytical schools, and even linguists -controversies questioning the validity, the very legitimacy, of a philosophical inquiry into beauty, art and creative processes. Notwithstanding the relatively more recent usage of the term proper, Aesthetics has a millennia-long history: beginning, in the West, with the old-world Greek philosophers, like Pythagoras, Plato, and Aristotle; and, in India, with the Vedic writings, more specifically, Bharata. Dr. Shyamala Gupta’s book is indisputably a painstaking effort trying to chart the historical progression of aesthetics: both Indian and Western -with focus not only on its evolutionary landmarks, but on its important concepts and theories as well. Schematically structured into two parts, Part 1 of the book examines the status of Indian aesthetics: its theories of rasa and dhvani, and, besides these, of its world- view of art. In its Part 2 are traced the development ofWestern theories of art and beauty, together with their attendant issues appearing, from time to time: from the days of ancient Greek philosophers to contemporary thinkers. Additionally, the authoress also tries to show how art is positioned vis-a-vis morality, science, sport and culture. A comprehensive, meticulously updated perspective on aesthetics, the book is sure to interest anyone concerned with the discipline: whether as a specialist, a student or a general reader.

  • Aryabhata Krita: Aryabhatiya (आर्यभट कृत: आर्यभटीय) by: Kedar Nath Shukla $20.00

    आर्यभटीय प्राचीन भारत के महान् ज्योतिषविद् एवम् गणितज्ञ आर्यभट (476-550) की प्रमुख रचना है। आर्या—छन्द में रचित 121 श्लोकों से युक्त चार अध्यायों की आर्यभटीय भारतीय गणित एवम् खगोलिकी का एक सैद्धान्तिक ग्रन्थ हैए जिसका व्यापक प्रभाव मध्यकालीन भारत के अतिरिक्त अरब देशों में भी रहा।
    आर्यभट ने सौर–मण्डल के भूकेन्द्रिक सिद्धान्त को प्रतिपादित किया हैए जिसमें सूर्य और चन्द्रमा अपने-अपने अधिचक्रों पर चक्कर लगाते हुए पृथ्वी का चक्कर लगाते हैं। ग्रहण के स्वरूप तथा उसकी गणना.विधि प्रस्तुत की गई है। वह पहले खगोलविद् रहे जिन्होंने पृथ्वी की अपने अक्ष पर भ्रमण करने की अभिकल्पना की है। दशमलव के चार अंकों तक पाई (π) का शुद्ध मान ज्ञात किया है। आर्यभट ने अंकों के प्रदर्शन के लिए अक्षरों का प्रयोग कियाए लेकिन इसकी क्लिष्टता के कारण यह प्रचलित नहीं हो सका। संख्याओं के वर्गमूल एवम् घनमूल ज्ञात करने की विधि या अनिधार्य समीकरणों के हल की कुट्टक विधि को आजकल क्रिप्टोलॉजी में आर्यभट एल्गोरिथम के रूप में प्रयुक्त किया जा रहा है।
    डॉ˚ केदारनाथ शुक्ल द्वारा आर्यभटीय के संस्कृत श्लोकों का हिन्दी रूपान्तरण एवम् आधुनिक पदों में उनकी सरल व्याख्या प्रस्तुत करने का एक लघु प्रयास किया गया है। प्राचीन भारतीय गणित एवम् खगोलिकी की यह सर्वोत्कृष्ट कीर्तिए आशा हैए सुविज्ञ छात्रों एवं जन.मानस के लिए हितकर होगी।

    Bachpan-Childhood by: R.N. Kogata $20.00

    In the life of a human being the most sweet and memorable part is its childhood, say from its second year till its seventh or eighth. During this time the child is very innocent, full of life, playful, has no responsibility or worry, and when in fear or pain it calls its mother and she is there ever ready to protect it. It understands no restriction and has freedom to go and talk to anybody in the house. It does not know how to hate anyone — in fact, it is like the manifestation of the ever-gracious divinity in the world. A child is loved, respected and even adored.

    This book is a small attempt to express the love, affection and feelings towards children. In Hindu pantheon the only divine family having children is that of Shiva and Parvati or Uma. Through pleasing illustrations, another made-for-each-other couple — the Kogatas — have touched upon the various facets in the life of the divine chidren — Ganesha and Karttikeya — together with their doting parents. The delightful verses add sweetness and charm to the book.

    Bhagavad Gita by: Nataraja Guru $34.00

    Nearing its fiftieth year of being continuously in print, Nataraja Guru’s monumental analysis of one of the greatest philosophical classics of Planet Earth is now available in a new edition. Generations have benefited from its unique angle of vision, which introduces a universal framework that does not depend on faith to impart its message of infinite potential for every human being. The Guru’s wry humor, fresh insights, and fearless challenges to prevailing orthodoxies, are clear marks of his style. His analysis is radical by any measure, yet it must be noted that much of the scientific and philosophic community has evolved over the same half century toward a similar global, broad-minded outlook to the one which the Guru brings to bear in these pages, and which not coincidentally is advocated by the Bhagavad Gita itself.

    Bhagavad-Gita by: N.C. Panda $18.00$24.00

    This Exposition on the Bhagavad-Gita is an exception to the traditional translation of and commentary on the scripture. It covers all the eighteen chapters of the Gita in the form of essays, with English translation of almost all verses and commentaries thereupon. In addition, the essays do contain the reflections of the author who has analyzed the topics in the light of modern thought in a broader spectrum. The Sanskrit text in Devanagari script, with Roman transliteration, has been appended to the main text.
    The Gita is not a religious book. It does not belong to any single faith. In the language of Aldous Huxley, it is the perennial philosophy of mankind. Keeping this context in view, the book has been addressed not only to the present citizens but also to the whole mankind which will inhabit the earth in the future.
    This scripture had its birth in a battlefield. Symbolically speaking, everybody’s life is a battleground. Arjuna represents all members of the human species. In a situation of agony and dejection, being utterly perplexed, he could not decide what to do and what not to do. The Gita provides practical solutions to the problems of life and leads the path to liberation. It humanizes and divinizes man. The present book gets success if it helps man ascend humanely and spiritually.
