So far as many as 34 volumes have been published which provide a mine of information, without referring to which no worthwhile research-work on Indian history and archaeology is at all possible. The articles include even those presented in the Annual Conferences of the Society. This is precisely the reason the Puratattva is consulted throughout the world to gather details on the progress of Indian archaeology and insights on Indian history and culture. It is indeed of permanent value for all scholars and all libraries in India and abroad.

    Republics, Kingdoms, Towns and Cities in Ancient India by: G.P. Singh 900.00

    Ancient Indian polity took a new turn with the emergence of republics in the post-Vedic age. The history of republics covers the period from the age of the Mahabharata to the fourth century AD. Dr. G.P. Singh here comprehensively, yet incisively, studies the rise, growth and fall of republics in ancient India during the period. He has also dwelt upon the rise and expansion of kingdoms and growth and decline of towns, cities and various urban centres in different parts of the Indian subcontinent at length. The work traces the pattern and functioning of republican governments at the time of the Buddha (sixth and fifth centuries bc) Panini (fifth century bc), Kautilya (fourth century bc), Alexander (327-325 bc), the Mauryas (321-184 bc) the Sungas (184-72 bc) and the Guptas later. The research is based on the indepth study of the epics, the Puranas, and Buddhist and Jaina sources which are supplemented by Greek and Roman writings, Sanskrit literary evidence and epigraphic & numismatic discoveries. It delves deep into modes of expansion of territories, factors leading to urbanisation and urbanisation patterns, and town planning. It presents a picturesque description of the urban centres of north-western India primarily based on Greek and Latin sources and pays special attention to dates related to founding of republics and cities, their extent, their functioning as administrative and religious centres, the problem of their identification and references to them in works, and their place in the wider framework of ancient Indian polity. The book will be useful to scholars and students interested in the study of ancient Indian polity and urban history.

    The book logically demolishes some widely-prevalent Puranic myths, focussing on eight celebrated men of remote historical past: Visvamitra, Parasurama, Bhagiratha, Rama, Vyasa, Krsna, Yudhisthira and Valmiki — whose real characters have been shrouded in mythologisation.

    Retrieval of History from Puranic Myths by: P.L Bhargava 225.00

    Did Rama banish his wife Sita? Did Krishna have Radha for his companion? Was Shakuntala Vishvamitra’s daughter? Could Bhagiratha bring about the Ganga’s descent from heaven? Or, was Vyasa really the author of the traditional eighteen puranas? Addressing these and other similar questions, Dr. Bhargava retrieves historically valid answers from the maze of Puranic myths — notwithstanding their deeply entrenched contradistinctions in the Hindu psyche. As a well known genre of Sanskrit literature, the Puranas, besides giving an account of the creation and the dissolution of the universe and the ages of Manus (the ancestors of mankind), also list the genealogies of Aryan kings and rishis, and the life stories of famous persons. They have accordingly lent to ancient Hindu lore a most remarkable air of veracity. The historicity of these personages is evident from the fact that the names of many of them occur in the Vedic literature also, which is much older than, and quite independent of these Puranas. A systematic, critical, and comparative study of the Puranas and the Vedic literature, as well as of other time- honoured literary sources conducted in this book makes it possible to discredit the myths that have grown around the names of many great men and women of ancient India. The book logically demolishes some of the widely-prevalent Puranic myths, focussing on eight celebrated great men of remote historical past: Vishvamitra, Parashurama, Bhagiratha, Rama, Vyasa, Krishna, Yudhishthira, and Valmiki — whose real characters have been shrouded in the mist of centuries of mythologization. The author has demonstrated that when shorn of all myths, the real greatness of these men is fully revealed. A widely acclaimed work, Retrieval of History from Puranic Myths is now in its second, revised edition.

    Sanskrit Education and Literature in Ancient and Medieval Tamil Nadu by: Chithra Madhavan 585.00

    Education, especially Vedic and Vedantic, along with allied subjects, was a prime focus of the rulers of the Tamil kingdoms. This book highlights the educational initiatives during the reigns of the Pallava, Pandya, Cola, Vijayanagara, Nayaka and other kings.

The teachers were handsomely paid and bhatta-vritti was the norm of the day; villages were donated to them Þ either as ekabhoga or as agrahara (brahmadeya). There were poets and composers among the rulers, as an embodiment of their dedication to education. The numerous grants act as authentic sources of information on the reigns of these rulers, scholars, composers and educational institutions across many centuries Þ beginning from the Pallava times.

    Satyavratashetram Devadhamam Mokshapuri Kanchipuram by: S. Rama Krishna Pisipaty 1,260.00
    Satyavratashetram, one of the ancient holy cities of South India is well known as the ‘mokshapuri’ and temple town. It is a holy Dhamam, abode of the God and Godess. A place is made holy by the presence of Lord and his devotees. Holy place is a platform to express the divine where performance of spiritual activities gets more benefit and made easy to bestow liberation to anyone even celestial abodes. Such places whatever spiritual activities are performed get thousand fold result. One very prominent story that runs practically across this holy city and also the reason of the existence of many temples is that the Lord Brahma performed yajna. It is said that Brahma (Ka) worshipped (anchi) Lord Vishnu and performed yajna at this place, which is why the city was given the name Kanchipuram (puram meaning ‘city ). Since then, Kanchipuram is one of the seven most significant pilgrim centres of Hinduism.
