    Mankind, when it gave expression to its first dawning of religious thoughts, wove a fabric of myths and theories about religion, the warp of which ran through from earliest historical times to our own days as threads of the warp of philosophies and theories about sex, male, female, love, passion, lust, desire, procreation, offspring, etc. The succeeding ages and civilizations wove into its warp the woof of the individual religions, myths and fables of gods and goddesses, so that the whole fabric of beliefs became refined as mankind itself advanced.
    Sex and Sex Worship is the result of a long-time, arduous study of the concept of sex and the worship of phallus in various civilizations and in the development of different religions, modern and old, over a period of many millennia. The book makes one grasp a lot of topics associated with sex and sex symbols such as nature of sex and reproduction, status of women, cosmo-gonies, sex in man and animal, sexual relationship of gods and goddesses, virgin worship, phallic festivals, among many, while making it clear that the worship of generative organs was rather a use of representations of phallus and yoni as symbols for certain religious ideas which were embodied in nature worship.
    It also vividly talks about the concept of sex and sex organs in art and ethics, sculpture, art anatomy, etc. The contents in toto lead one to the myriad aspects and concerns associated with sex and phallic worship. It is a must read for a scholar and a common man alike.

    Social History of the Tamils (1707-1947) by: P. Subramanian 850.00

    Notwithstanding the prolificity of indepth researches in contemporary historiography, Professor Subramanian’s book is the first concentrative effort to track down the social history of the Tamils. Today, the Tamils, over fifty million of them, live in the south-eastern state of the Indian peninsula: Tamil Nadu — which indisputably represents the very nucleus of millennia-old Dravidian culture in India. The book offers a compelling account of the Tamils’ society, economy, religious beliefs, educational mechanisms, arts, and cultural expressions during the years 1707-1947 — when, significantly, the British domination blossomed, bloomed, and faded; when new thoughts, new ideas, and new ways of life came as irresistibly into the homeland of the Tamils as into the Indian subcontinent. Thus retracing over two centuries of the ‘British connextion with India’, the author here tries to show how the long colonial rule in India exposed the tradition-bound Tamilian society to Western influences — with results that proved incalculable in both their range and depth. Social History of the Tamils : 1707-1947 is the outcome of Professor Subramanian’s decade-long, painstaking research, authenticated by an astonishing mass of evidence including archival records, Jesuit sources, Modi (Maratha) manuscripts, newspapers’ reports, biographies, travelogues, literary writings, and even fictional works.

    Jayarashibhatta’s Tattvopaplavsimha (ca. 8th cent.) is considered to be an important work of the Caravaka (Charvak) philosophy. The Charvak philosophy rejects evidence other than the direct evidence, to the extent that it does not consider sky as an element in the five fundamental elements (earth, water, fire, air and sky). The manuscript of Tattvopaplavisimha was obtained from Patan (modern-day Patna) in 1926. It was published in the Oriental Series in 1940 and with an introduction in Hindi by Pandit Sukhlal Sanghvi in 1987. The historical work examines the definitions of the evidence as accepted by various arms of Indian philosophy. The present book reviews the refutation of various epistemological principles explained in Tattvopaplavsimha.जयराशिभट्ट कृत तत्त्वोपप्लवसिंह (आठवीं शताब्दी) चार्वाक दर्शन का ग्रन्थ माना जाता है। चार्वाक दर्शन प्रत्यक्ष प्रमाण के अतिरिक्त सभी प्रमाणों को अस्वीकार करता है, इसके साथ ही प्रत्यक्ष को ही एकमात्र प्रमाण मानने के कारण चार्वाक पंचतत्वों (पृथ्वी, जल, अग्नि, वायु एवं आकाश) में आकाश तत्त्व को नकारता है। तत्त्वोपप्लवसिंह ग्रन्थ की पाण्डुलिपि सन 1926 में पाटन से प्राप्त हुई। सन 1940 में ओरियंटल सीरीज में तथा 1987 में पंडित श्री सुखलाल जी सांघवी की हिंदी भूमिका के साथ प्रकाशित हुआ। यह ग्रन्थ वैतण्डिक पद्धति होने के कारण भारतीय दर्शन के विभिन्न सम्प्रदायों द्वारा स्वीकृत प्रमाणों की परिभाषाओँ और प्रमाण की परीक्षा करता है। प्रस्तुत पुस्तक में तत्त्वोपप्लवसिंह में व्याख्यायित विभिन्न ज्ञानमीमांसीय सिद्धांतों के खंडन की समीक्षा की गयी है।

    It is through the Indian aesthetic mind and its concepts of the beautiful that the Indian civilization can be best understood, for in that mind are pages of history and voices of the past, in it will be heard the sounds of our dancers and in it will be seen the colours of our fabrics, it is a mind which treasures the aroma of the earth for in it we shall find terracotta figures that will whisper stories of times gone by. In that ancient mind silent stones will speak of sthapatis who not only built temples but also havelis, in that very mind rivers will whisper of saints who meditated on its banks and also of mountains which will beckon us to caves where truth was discovered, in that pristine mind stars will talk to us of astronomers who counted them, in that radiant mind we will meet scribes who created beautiful manuscripts and painters who immortalised our gathas and kathas through their kalam.

    Vedānta is the very heart of Indian philosophy. The various schools of Vedānta have been explored under diverse categories including ontological and epistemological, but they are a storehouse of so much more. “Hermeneutics” in simple words can be the theory of interpretation and this book has studied the critique of the Advaita hermeneutics by Rāmānujācārya based on Vedic statements like tat tvam asi, tadaikāta bahu syāma, neha nānāsti kiñcana and many others in his book Vedārthasaṁgraha which mirrors a complete vision of the Upaniṣads. Rāmānujācārya has shown how the Śruti statements can be seen in a coherent manner resolving the conflicts of bheda and abheda. The nature of a word and its various śaktis, followed by how successful are words in describing the concepts of sat, cit and ānanda, are also discussed here.
    This book is an initial effort in the hermeneutic studies of Indian texts, which have been kept limited to the scope of philosophy, theology or religion alone. Many more linguistic treasures can be found here.

    All that cannot be expressed in language, for early Wittgenstein, belong to the realm of Unsayable or Showable. Such a realm consists of religious beliefs, ethical values, aesthetics, metaphysics, solipsism, love, death among other aspects of life which language is incapable of depicting successfully. Later Wittgenstein did not insist on the inexpressibility of these realms as each of them has their own distinct form of life. In this background this anthology is an attempt to explore various facets of these aspects of Wittgensteinian philosophy through various elucidations and interpretations. It is classified into three sections, viz. “Religious Beliefs, Wittgensteinian Fideism, Religious Pluralism, and Cultural Debates”, “Absolute Value, Ethics, Aesthetics, Architecture” and “Subjectivism, Solipsism, Metaphysics, and Hermeneutics”. It aims at bringing out the current development in the field as found in the debates and discussions on Wittgensteinian philosophy in the contemporary philosophical world.

    फ्योगय् भारतीय सांस्कृतिक परम्परा की अनमोल विरासत है। सहड्डों वर्षों के तप एवं अभ्यास से ऋषियों-मुनियों ने, जो शरीर-रचना, स्वास्थ्य तथा अध्यात्म साधना की सामूहिक एवं एकीकृत प्रणाली विकसित की, वही योग है। यह फ्योगय् इसलिए भी है कि इसमें फ्जुड़नाय् है। इस फ्जुड़नेय् को शरीर के परिप्रेक्ष्य से लें तो स्वास्थ्य एवं आरोग्य के साथ जुड़ना है। आध्यात्मिक परिप्रेक्ष्य से लें तो आत्मज्ञान या ब्रह्मज्ञान, मोक्ष, कैवल्य आदि से जुड़ना या प्राप्ति है।

    Yoga Psychology by: Kamakhya Kumar 600.00 540.00

    “Yoga psychology is both a positive and a normative science. It not only analyses human personality and its growth, but sets normative ideals and prescribes techniques to achieve such objectives, as well. Thus, expansion of consciousness and making oneself the master of his/her mind are the broad objectives of yoga psychology. The topological aspect of mind as described by Freud in terms of conscious, subconscious and unconscious levels was well detailed in the yogic literature, thousands of years ago. The sound practice of yoga enables one to have a disease-free body and keen intellect.
    The book, thus, details the impact of various yoga practices on psychology and specifies that consciousness has a wider conation in yoga. Yoga presents vivid and sound meditation procedures for the attainment of psychic consciousness through the awakening of kundalini. Homeostasis or balance is the central principle in yoga psychology, and it holds that any sort of imbalance in the system — physical, psychological or pranic — creates disorders and the solution lies in rebalancing it. Here comes the role of yogic psychotherapies such as prarthana, mantra sadhana, spiritual couselling, pranayama, yajna, sankirtana, svadhyaya and vrata anushthana.
    This volume enunciates that yoga psychology is an applied science, and thus has remedies for many individual and social problems. It deals at large with the application and benefits of yogic practices in developing one’s personality traits and leveraging them further to keep him/her happy and experience a blissful life.”
