    Aryabhata Krita: Aryabhatiya (आर्यभट कृत: आर्यभटीय) by: Kedar Nath Shukla 162.00

    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।

    Astrology For All by: Alan Leo 531.00765.00

    Astrology is the oldest of all it sciences. We find a belief that Astrology spread throughout the whole world from Babylonia and Chaldea. It taught the people to lift their aspirations by faith, hope and reverence, through the planetary spirits to the Logos of our solar system, the One Supreme and Universe Self.

    Many attempts have been made to bring the study of Astrology within the reach of all persons endowed with a thinking mind, but owing to the magnitude of the subject and the great difficulty of reducing a metaphysical science into terms of natural philosophy, the object has hither to been only partly achieved.

    When we come to consider that Astrology was the beginning of nearly all that we hold valuable in art, literature, religion and science; that the constellations were our first pictures; and that astronomy sprang from Chaldean Astrology, we may judge of its value to humanity.

    An attempt has been made here to place before the world the system of Astrology. It would be useful for the scholars, intellectuals, astrologers as well as common men.

    Bachpan-Childhood by: R.N. Kogata 162.00

    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.

    Blissful Experience, Bhakti by: T.K. Sribhashyam, Alamelu Sheshadri, 432.00738.00

    Bhakti-yoga is seen as the direct path to perfection that leads to the very heart of religious consciousness. Ramanuja’s concept of bhakti (devotion) emphasised the practice of self-surrender through which a person realises his personality, strengths and weaknesses, and hidden powers. Bhakti, for him, acts as a link between mortals and the Ultimate Reality.
    This book examines the views of Vishishtadvaita of Ramanuja on bhakti and prapatti (self-surrender). It studies in-depth the meaning of God, the soul and the Supreme Soul, and the world; the concept of bhakti; the different stages of bhakti referring to numerous sources that include the Vedas, the Bhagavad-Gita, the Upanishads and the Puranas. It focuses on Ramanuja’s teaching of bhakti, examining his philosophy in general and his sevenfold practice, Sadhana Saptaka to generate bhakti that expounds the qualities and significance of discrimination for viveka, freedom from sensual attachment or anger for securing vimoka, repeated reflection of God, performance of religious duty for inner mental strength, development of ethical virtues, freedom from despair and freedom from excessive joy. It understands the relevance of symbols in devotion and examines nature and use of symbols in Buddhism and Hinduism. The scholarly study discusses the importance and cultivation of peaceful emotions, and need for prayer and dietary regulations in devotion.
    The volume will prove an indispensable work for scholars of Indian philosophy and religious studies.
