Lord Siva and Buddha in the Golden Isles

Lord Siva and Buddha in the Golden Isles : In Search of Classical Indonesia by  Lokesh Chandra from Aditya Prakashan.

This volume narrates the shared culture of India and Indonesia for 15 centuries in the domains of polity and societal norms, language and literature, architectonics and aesthetics. This inter-flow began in the first century but is documented by the inscriptions of Mulavarman and Purnavarman around 400 AC.

Indonesia shared with India words and kavyas, Mahabharata and Ramayana, Siva and Buddhist philosophy, wayong and lokons, sculptures and paintings, dance and music. This book is a homage to the extensive field work and intensive researches of Prof RaghuVira, his children, disciples and friends: Indians, Indonesians and Europeans. It investigates the diverse vicissitudes of cultural history as a unique phenomenon of two cousin cultures.

In our Philosophy section, Rs. 3000, in hardback, 417 pages, ISBN: 9788177421309
