Vipassana means to see thing as they really are, not only as they seem to be. The technique of Vipassana is based on the Satipatthana Sutta. Satipatthana means the establishing of mindfulness. This is one of the most original teachings of the Buddha and through it one can cultivate mindfulness and develop awareness. Vipassana meditation aims at the total purification of human beings and at the overcoming of sorrow, lamentation, the destruction of grief and suffering and the reaching of the right path and the attainment of the Nibbanic state. One who practises Vipassana meditation with this aim in mind, even before he attains the final goal, can achieve peace of mind, happiness, calmness, relaxation, and tranquility and the ability to face life's daily problems and enjoy a corresponding greater degree of happiness in this very life here and now.

9. On Being Mindless- Buddhist Meditation and the Mind Bodhy Problem/ Paul J. Griffiths, Rs. 450
ISBN: 81-7030-606-X, Series: Bibliotheca Indo-Buddhica Series No.196
About the Book
Indian Buddhist philosophers say that it is possible to achieve, by specific meditational techniques, a distinctive ‘altered state’ which they call ‘the attainment of cessation’. In this state, the stream of mental events is temporarily brought to a complete halt: the practitioner becomes mindless. The possibility and desirability of such an altered state was extensively discussed by Buddhist thinkers in India. In these discussions, they were compelled to consider the causal connections between the mental and the physical, and thus to clarify their positions on what in the west has usually been called the mind-body problem. On Being Mindless presents these discussions to an English speaking readership for the first time, including analysis and translation of texts not previously available in English and, in some cases, of material not available in any Western language. Opposing fashionably relativistic approaches to non-Western philosophical traditions, Paul Griffiths critically comments upon the analyses of mindlessness given by Buddhist thinkers. He maintains that “the functions, nature, and limits of rationality are conceived similarly in all cultures” and rejects” that humility which, all too often in those Western academic circles where the study of Buddhist thought is carried on, refuses to take its material with philosophical seriousness”. On Being Mindless is a study in cross-cultural philosophy which should do much to increase awareness among Western scholars of the precision and subtlety of India Philosophical thinking. It may also encourage Western philosophers to look beyond the barriers of their own culture and language for serious philosophical analysis.

ISBN: 81-7030-528-4, Series: Bibliotheca Indo-Buddhica Series No. 176
About the Book
In January 1969 an unusual workshop was held at Oberlin College in Ohio - an experimental project in Buddhist meditation. It brought together a Thai Buddhist meditation teacher, the Venerable Chao Khun Sobhana Dhammasudhi, and a Zen priest, the Reverend Eshin Nishimura, to share with Professor Donald K. Swearer in instructing a group of students in the theory and practice of satipatthana and zazen, two forms of Buddhist meditation.Secrets of the Lotus - prepared by Professor Swearer, the Venerable Dhammasudhi, and the Reverend Nishimura - grew out of this successful venture, and is designed to meet a special need. While recent books dealing with Buddhist meditation have focused on either the Zen or the Theravada tradition, this volume discusses meditation within both traditions, employing classical texts with explanatory commentary and contemporary exposition. The reader also learns exactly what happened at the experimental workshop and how the participants responded.

ISBN: 81-7030-138-6, Series: Sri Garib das Oriental Series No. 63
From the preface:
"Much has been written about Yoga ever since the Theosophists "discovered" spiritual India, and not a little of a very uninformed nature which, in place of elucidating a complex mental science, has either perplexed the student or rendered the whole subject ridiculous. In this book it is my intention to abide by facts and simultaneously introduce sufficient cross references to other mystical systems, such as western magic and the Qabalah, to show that Yoga is one of a series of means of deliverance from worldly illusions. All these systems are closely related; for, in one sense, they and many others, such as Christian mysticism, Quietism, Buddhism, Taoism and Sufism, are spiritual languages the words of which differ in sound but the meanings of which are identical."

"In 1805 H.T. Colebrooke, wrote an elaborate essay on the Vedas in the Asiatic Researches. This essay created a lot of interest in Europe to take up Vedic studies seriously. The efforts to study were directed towards three points: 1. Critical editions of the Vedic text. 2. Translations of those texts and. 3. Study of those texts in order to get acquainted with ancient Indian Culture and Philosophy.
"It was H.H. Wilson, who for the first time translated entirely the Rgveda into English. H.H. Wilson based his English translation on the commentary of Sayanacharya and has given his own interpretations in the notes wherever there are differences with the commentary. This is prose English translation of the Rgveda with exhaustive notes."

The Gita - A Theory of Human Action
The GitaA Theory of Human ActionBy S. S. MoreSri Garib Das Oriental Series No. 97 Sri Satguru Publications (Delhi), ISBN: 81-7030-222-7
Price: Rs. 250
About the Book
Number of persons both Indian and Western have written on the Gita and put forth different interpretations of it. Yet, many of them suffer from the fallacy of either omission or commission. Some of them, severing the Gita from the Mahabharata, consider the first chapter of the Gita along with the initial ten verses of its second chapter to be utterly redundant. On the other hand, many interpreters read in the Gita what they want it to champion without considering whether it would be appropriate and defensible for the Gita to do so. For the first time in the Gita scholarship the world over, in this book the Gita is sought to be interpreted on the background of its Mahabharata setting. It is argued that Krsna's socio-centric theory of warrantability of human action on social level, inclusive of indulgence in intra-community war, is superior to any theory about it which was then current and squarely and satisfactorily answers every major problem concerning human action, no matter whether it was raised by Arjuna or anybody else. The book cogently argues its central point and supports it on the basis of extensive data gathered from various sourses.

Sri Vidya Kosa
Srividya-Kosa/S.K. Ramachandra Rao.
Reprint. Delhi, Sri Satguru Pub., 2005, v, 399 p., ISBN 81-7030-832-1.
Rs.600-00 US$ 40,
(in India only)
Contents: Introduction. 1. Background. 2. Srividya lineages. 3. Yantra Rahasya. 4. Mantra Rahasya. 5. Puja Rahasya. 6. Amnaya Pantheon.
"Srividya is discipline where abounds considerable mystery, esotericism and occultism. There is among common people quite some ignorance concerning its philosophy and practice. There is also a host of doubts and uncertainties among practitioners themselves. The presence of different tradition in Srividya is a further source of confusion. The textual background to Srividya has almost become obscure and obsolete; it has become more a matter of individual lineages of practices. In the circumstances there is a need for an authentic and comprehensive account of all three aspects of Srividya, viz. The Yantra, the Mantra and the Tantra. This book is an attempt to provide one.
Along with all textual details concerning the philosophy and practice of Srividya, relevant iconographic details with illustrations have also been given

Classical Hindu Mythology : A Reader in the Sanskrit Puranas/edited and translated by Cornelia Dimmi
Classical Hindu Mythology : A Reader in the Sanskrit Puranas/edited and translated by Cornelia Dimmitt and J.A.B. van Buitenen. Reprint. 1998, Delhi. Sri Satguru. xiii, 373 p.,
Contents: Preface. 1. Origins. 2. Visnu. 3. Krsna. 4. Siva. 5. The Goddess. 6. Seers, kings and supernaturals. Glossary. Notes on sources. Bibliography of Sanskrit Puranas. Index.
"The Mahapuranas embody the received tradition of Hindu mythology. This anthology contains fresh translations of these myths, only a few of which have ever been available in English before, thus providing a rich new portion of Hindu mythology.
"The book is organized into six chapters. "Origins" contains myths relating to creation, time, and space. "Seers, kings and supernaturals" relates tales of rivers, trees, animals, demons, and men, particularly heroes and sages. Myths about the chief Gods are dealt with in three separate chapters: "Krsna," "Visnu," and "Siva." The chapter "The Goddess" presents stories of the wives and lovers of the Gods, as well as of Kali, the savage battle Goddess.
"In their introductions, the editors provide a historical setting in which to discuss Hindu mythology as well as a full analysis of its basic sources. The many names given the Gods and Goddesses in the Sanskrit texts have been retained since their multiplicity is an essential part of the richness of the original. The editors have provided a thorough glossary to make these names accessible

Tao Sheng’s Commentary on the Lotus Sutra : A Study and Translation/Young Ho Kim
Tao Sheng’s Commentary on the Lotus Sutra : A Study and Translation/Young Ho Kim. Delhi, Satguru, 1992, 374 p., Rs.400. ISBN 81-7030-306-0.
Contents: Preface. I. Introduction: 1. Tao-Sheng’s prehistory: the state of Buddhist studies in China. 2. Tao-Sheng’s biography. 3. Tao-Sheng’s works. 4. Tao-Sheng’s doctrines. 5. Tao-Sheng’s influence and the impact of his doctrines. II. A critical study of Tao-Sheng’s commentary on the Lotus Sutra: 6. Tao-sheng and the Saddharmapundarika. 7. Literary aspects. 8. Central ideas. 9. Traces of Tao-Sheng’s doctrines. 10. Conclusions. III. Translation. Bibliography. Index.
"(Chu) Tao Sheng stands out in history as a unique and preeminent thinker whose paradigmatic, original ideas paved the way for the advent of Chinese Buddhism, The Universality of Buddha nature, which Tao-Sheng Championed at the cost of excommunication, was to become a cornerstone of the Chinese Buddhist ideology. This book presents a comprehensive study of the only complete document by Tao-Sheng still in existence. The work was composed toward the end of Tao-Sheng’s life (in 432), a product of his mature scholarship, presumably incorporating the doctrines pronounced earlier. The aim of this study are twofold: (1) to prepare a faithfull, undistorted translation of the commentary in its entirety, in order to provide a basis and vantage point for further study and understanding of Tao-Sheng; and (2) to attempt to illuminate Tao-Sheng’s system of religious knowledge by examining the commentary in conjunction with other doctrines and writings, and thus to evaluate Tao-Sheng’s contribution to implanting (or transplanting) the alien religious system in Chinese soil. Of course, the two objectives are not to be seen as separate tasks; they are closely bound up with one another.

Tapta-Marga/ Walter O. Kaelber
Tapta-MargaAsceticism and Initiation in Vedic India Walter O. Kaelber
Delhi,Sri Satguru. Rs.200.
About the Book
"Kaelber takes a subject which looks obscure at first sight, digests, distills, and comments on a difficult body of scholarship, and then writes about it in a way that is easily accessible to any beginning reader on the subject while at the same time fresh, abrim with new insights, and a stimulating read for the scholar. He achieves this by persistently showing how tapas, in its many transformations, remains at the center of the mainstream of Vedic religion from its beginnings to its Upanishadic 'end.' I see this book as something we have long needed for the teaching of Hinduism: a good book with which to introduce students to the continuities of Vedic religion." -- Alf Hiltebeitel, George Washington University
This is the most comprehensive study yet made of tapas and of asceticism during the Vedic period. It also explains three other essential components of Vedic thought: sacrifice, homology, and knowledge. These concepts, along with tapas and initiation symbolism, reveal the heart of Vedic religion. therefore, this study presents a "history of Vedic religion," organized around the central building blocks of that tradition.
"This is an excellent study of an important topic in the history of Vedic religion. What I like best about the work is the way it reveals the variety of meanings and uses of tapas in different contexts to establish connections between natural, human, and cosmic realities and to maintain continuity between ritual tradition and the path of knowledge. This is a creative study that provides important new insights into the basic principles of Vedic religion." -- Thomas J. Hopkins, Franklin and Marshall College
Walter O. Kaelber is Professor of Religious Studies at Wagner College. Table Of Contents

"As many medical dogmas and beliefs are beginning to fall into disfavor, the benefits of natural healthcare are enjoying a renaissance. Herbal traditions are passed down from one generation to the next for one simple reason: they work. Herbal treatment should not be construed as inferior when compared to using drugs. When properly administered, herbs, can be just as effective and often more effective than their pharmaceutical counterparts as applied in first aid.
"Many of the most useful first aid texts require prescription drugs that only a licensed medical doctor has access to. The strength of Herbal First Aid and herbal medicines is that not only does it work, but it will always be available to each of us, as long as we have the earth, water and sunshine. Science is validating what the ancients have taught us all along. Herbal Medicine is a powerful and effective form of treatment that should not be overlooked. By combining the benefits of medical lifesaving knowledge and herbal wisdom, you will be able to give the very best immediate care or ‘First Aid’"
[Kyle D. Christensen is a practicing chiropractor, master herbalist and naturopathic physician.

The Meaning of the term DHARMA
The Central Conception of Buddhism and the meaning of the term Dharma (Bibliotheca Indo Buddhica Series No. 91)By Th. StcherbatskySri Satguru Publications (Delhi), ISBN: 81-7030-280-3Price: Rs.70
About The Book
The work explains in detail the principle of Radical Pluralism which asserts that the elements alone are realities while every combination of them is a mere name covering a plurality of separate elements. The conception of a dharma is the central point of the Buddhist doctrine. In the light of this conception Buddhism discloses itself as a metaphysical theory developed out of one fundamental principle, viz. the idea that existence is an interplay of a plurality of subtle, ultimate, not further analysable elements of Matter, Mind, and Forces. These elements are technically called dharmas, a meaning which this word has in this system alone. Buddhism, accordingly, can be characterized as a system of Radical Pluralism. The book is divided into sixteen sections dealing with the Skandhas, ayatanas, dhatus, Elements of matter, Elements of mind, Forces, Anatma, Pratityasamutpada, Karma, Impermanence of the Elements, Impermanence in Sankhya-Yoga, Unrest of the Elements, Theory of Cognition, Pre-Buddhaic Buddhism etc.
It has two appendices dealing with the views of Vasubandhu on the fundamental principles of Sarvastivada and classification of all elements of existence according to the Sarvastivadins. The two indices record proper names and Sanskrit terms occuring in the work.
Contents:
: Preface. 1. Preliminary. 2. Skandhas. 3. Ayatanas. 4. Dhatus. 5. Elements of matter. 6. Elements of mind. 7. Forces. 8. Non-substantiality of elements. 9. Pratitya Samutpada (Causality). 10. Karma. 11. Impermanence of the elements. 12. Impermanence in Sankhya Yoga. 13. Unrest of the elements. 14. Theory of cognition. 15. Pre-Buddhaic Buddhism. 16. SummaryAppendix: 1.

About the Book
Under an approved in house research project of National Botanical Research Institute (NBRI), Lucknow, ethnobotanical studies of the tribals and aboriginal populations were conducted in 13 districts of Uttar Pradesh and Uttaranchal inhabited by 18 tribes mainly among the Tharus, Kols, Gonds, Bhoxas, Kharwars, Jaunsaris, Bhotias, Garhwalis, Mushars, Baigas etc. in different seasons with a view to gather ethnobotanical informations on the traditional uses of plants and to uncover new plants of potential economic and medicinal value or new uses of known plants during the last 18 years by the scientists of ethnobotany group. The resource inventory of plant genetic resources used by the tribes, local inhabitants foresters, vaidyas and other knowledgeable informants of the region for food, fibre, medicine, oil, gums, dyes tannin, tribal crafts, narcotic, drinks and for antifertility and aphrodisic medicines, were prepared and documented. The studies have brought to light new indigenous knowledge on many species of useful plants.
The present book highlights 450 plant species used in the life and economy of the tribals for meeting the day-to-day needs and healthcare. Plants species of the forest flora utilized for food, firbre, medicines, oils, gums, resin, dyes, basketry, timber, wood work, fish poison, religious ceremonies, narcotics, drinks, etc. have been enumerated here along with their processing methods and uses. The valuable ethnobotanical plant resources are divided into 15 groups on the basis of their uses and the products obtained from them. The species are arranged under each group alphabetically, giving information on their botanical name, family name in parenthesis followed by local name and the tribes. The book also provides information on some potential threatened ethnomedicinal plants and suggests their conservation measures in their own agro climatic ecosystems. The plant species enumerated in ethno medicinal plants group needs further phytochemical, pharmacological, clininical investigations for isolation of potential drugs for standardization and validation of useful green medicines and herbal preparations for human welfare and healthcare. The book will serve as a database and serve as a potential source of information and useful tools to the students, teachers, researchers, botanists, foresters, environmentalists, conservationists practitioners of herbal medicines, planners and administrators for preparing Developmental Action Plans (DAP) for the tribal tracts through Integrated Tribal Developmental Programme (ITDP), extension programmes for the welfare and upliftment of rural tribals, aboriginal populations as well as modern society.

Tradition and Reflection/ Wilhelm Halbfass
Tradition and ReflectionExplorations in Indian ThoughtBy Wilhelm HalbfassSri Satguru Publications (Delhi), ISBN 81-7030-300-1Price: Rs. 400
Contents:Preface. 1. The idea of the Veda and the identity of Hinduism. 2. The presence of the Veda in Indian philosophical reflection. 3.Vedic orthodoxy and the plurality of religious traditions. 4. Vedic apologetics, ritual killing, and the foundations of ethics. 5. Human reason and Vedic revelation in Advaita Vedanta. 6. Sankara, the Yoga of Patanjali, and the so-called Yogasutrabhasyavivarana. 7. The therapeutic paradigm and the search for identity in Indian philosophy. 8. Man and Self in traditional Indian thought. 9. Competing causalities: Karma, Vedic rituals, and the natural world. 10. Homo hierarchicus: the conceptualization of the Varna system in Indian thought. Index.
About the Book
This book examines, above all, the relationship between reason and Vedic revelation, and the philosophical responses to the idea of the Veda. It deals with such topics as dharma, karma and rebirth, the role of man in the universe, the motivation and justification of human actions, the relationship between ritual norms and universal ethics, and reflections on the goals and sources of human knowledge.
Halbfass presents previously unknown materials concerning the history of sectarian movements, including the notorious "Thags" (thaka), and relations between Indian and Iranian thought. The approach is partly philosophical and partly historical and philological; to a certain extent, it is also comparative.
The author explores indigenous Indian reflections on the sources, the structure and the meaning of the Hindu tradition, and traditional philosophical responses to social and historical realities. He does not deal with social and historical realities per se; rather, basing his work on the premise that to understand these realities the reflections and constructions of traditional Indian theorists are no less significant than the observations and paradigms of modern western historians and social scientists, he explores the self-understanding of such leading thinkers as Sankara, Kumarila, Bhartrhari and Udayana.

Dattatreya;The Immortal Guru
Dattatreya : The Immortal Guru, Yogin, and Avatara : A Study of the Transformative and Inclusive Character of a Multi-Faceted Hindu Deity/Antonio Rigopoulos. Reprint. First published in 1998. Delhi, Satguru, 2000, 342 p., pic., RS.300. ISBN 81-7030-673-6.
Contents: Preface. 1. The genealogy of Dattatreya. 2. Puranic mythology of Dattatreya. 3. Dattatreya in minor Upanisads. 4. Dattatreya in the literature of the Mahanubhavas. 5. The Guru-caritra and the rise of the Dattatreya cult. 6. Eknath, Dasopant, and the unfolding of the Dattatreya movement. 7. The Tripura-rahasya. 8. The Avadhuta-gita. 9. The development of Dattatreya’s iconography. Conclusion. General bibliography. Selected bibliography on Dattatreya and his movement. Index.
From the preface: “This study presents the main phases in the making of the Hindu deity Dattatreya, from its Puranic emergence as an immortal Guru, Yogin, and Avatara, up to its celebration as the trimurti of Brahma, Visnu, and Siva. Focusing on the origin and development of this particular deity, one is brought into touch with virtually all major religious strands of that complex network of religions called Hinduism. Its assimilative force is witnessed by the variety of communities which appropriated Dattatreya from within an overall nondual philosophical framework: from the world of antinomian Tantrism to the world of Brahminical ritual orthodoxy, passing through the renunciatory milieux of Yoga, the Mahanubhava sect, Vaisnava devotionalism, Saiva asceticism, Saktism and Devi worship. Although one might envision the presence of plural Dattatreyas, construed in different ways within each given community, I would rather opt for the existence of a single multifaceted deity, constantly absorbing new traits in an ongoing process of cross-fertilization. Significantly, Dattatreya’s catalyzing force extends beyond the boundaries of Hinduism, also being linked to popular Sufism and Jainism.”
[Antonio Rigopoulos also wrote The Life and Teachings of Sai Baba of Shirdi.]

The Eternal Food : Gastronomic Ideas and Experiences of Hindus and Buddhists/ Edited by R. S. Khare
The Eternal Food : Gastronomic Ideas and Experiences of Hindus and Buddhists/edited by R. S. Khare. Reprint. Delhi, Satguru, 1993, xv, 273 p., ills., ISBN 81-7030-365-6. Rs.250
Contents: Preface. Introduction. 1. Food with saints: an aspect of Hindu gastrosemantics/R. S. Khare. 2. You are what you eat: the anomalous status of dog-cookers in Hindu mythology/David Gordon White. 3. Sharing the divine feast: evolution of food metaphor in Marathi Sant poetry/Vidyut Aklujkar. 4. Mountain of food, mountain of love: ritual inversion in the Annakuta feast at Mount Govardhan/Paul M. Toomey. 5. Pancamirtam: God’s washings as food/Manuel Moreno. 6. Food essence and the essence of experience/H.L. Seneviratne. 7. Annambrahman: cultural models, meanings, and aesthetics of Hindu food/R.S. Khare. 8. Food for thought: toward an anthology of food images/A.K. Ramanujan. Glossary. Index.
"The interdisciplinary approaches presented here investigate food in India and Sri Lanka for its wide ranging cultural meaning and uses. The authors examine food in religious and literary contexts, where saints, ritualists, poets, and the divine often provide grounds for a practically inexhaustible hermeneutics.
"The Eternal Food focuses on reflexive cultural expressions and personal experiences that food elicits in the region. Concerned with food as an "essence" and as an essential experience, the authors give special attention to Hindu saints for whom food, firmly grounded in moral ideals and practice, represents a cosmic divine principle at one level, and a most immediate and intimate material reality at another.
"In the cultural diversity of India, the authors work with several conceptual models and meanings of food. They demonstrate how it reflects common social understandings about social caste, the cure and prevention of ailments, its ability to alter moods and motivations, or affect innate personal dispositions, personal spiritual pursuits and attainments. In its sweep and depth, food presents a powerful cultural lens for seeing how practical, ritual, and spiritual spheres of life conjoin."

On Being Buddha: The Classical Doctrine of Buddhahood
On Being Buddha : The Classical Doctrine of BuddhahoodBy Paul J. Griffiths261 pages, ISBN: 81-7030-449-0Sri Satguru Publications (Delhi)Price: Rs.300.
Contents:
Preface. 1. The doctrinal study of doctrine. 2. Buddhist doctrine. 3. Buddhalogical doctrine. 4. Buddha in the world. 5. Buddha in heaven. 6. Buddha in eternity. 7. Doctrinal criticism. Notes. Glossary. Bibliography. Index.
"What is it like to be a Buddha? Is there only one Buddha or are there many? What can Buddhas do and what do they know? Is there anything they cannot do and cannot know? These and associated questions were much discussed by Buddhist thinkers in India, and a complex and subtle set of doctrinal positions was developed to deal with them. This is the first book in a western language to treat these doctrines about Buddha from a philosophical and thoroughly critical viewpoint.
"The book shows that Buddhist thinkers were driven, when theorizing about Buddha, by a basic intuition that Buddha must be maximally perfect, and that pursuing the implications of this intuition led them into some conceptual dilemmas that show considerable similarity to some of those treated by western theists. The Indian Buddhist tradition of thought about these matters is presented here as thoroughly systematic, analytical, and doctrinal.
"The book's analysis is based almost entirely upon original sources in their original languages. All extracts discussed are translated into English and the book is accessible to nonspecialists, while still treating material that has not been much discussed by western scholars

About the Book
Under an approved in house research project of National Botanical Research Institute (NBRI), Lucknow, ethnobotanical studies of the tribals and aboriginal populations were conducted in 13 districts of Uttar Pradesh and Uttaranchal inhabited by 18 tribes mainly among the Tharus, Kols, Gonds, Bhoxas, Kharwars, Jaunsaris, Bhotias, Garhwalis, Mushars, Baigas etc. in different seasons with a view to gather ethnobotanical informations on the traditional uses of plants and to uncover new plants of potential economic and medicinal value or new uses of known plants during the last 18 years by the scientists of ethnobotany group. The resource inventory of plant genetic resources used by the tribes, local inhabitants foresters, vaidyas and other knowledgeable informants of the region for food, fibre, medicine, oil, gums, dyes tannin, tribal crafts, narcotic, drinks and for antifertility and aphrodisic medicines, were prepared and documented. The studies have brought to light new indigenous knowledge on many species of useful plants.
The present book highlights 450 plant species used in the life and economy of the tribals for meeting the day-to-day needs and healthcare. Plants species of the forest flora utilized for food, firbre, medicines, oils, gums, resin, dyes, basketry, timber, wood work, fish poison, religious ceremonies, narcotics, drinks, etc. have been enumerated here along with their processing methods and uses. The valuable ethnobotanical plant resources are divided into 15 groups on the basis of their uses and the products obtained from them. The species are arranged under each group alphabetically, giving information on their botanical name, family name in parenthesis followed by local name and the tribes. The book also provides information on some potential threatened ethnomedicinal plants and suggests their conservation measures in their own agro climatic ecosystems. The plant species enumerated in ethno medicinal plants group needs further phytochemical, pharmacological, clininical investigations for isolation of potential drugs for standardization and validation of useful green medicines and herbal preparations for human welfare and healthcare. The book will serve as a database and serve as a potential source of information and useful tools to the students, teachers, researchers, botanists, foresters, environmentalists, conservationists practitioners of herbal medicines, planners and administrators for preparing Developmental Action Plans (DAP) for the tribal tracts through Integrated Tribal Developmental Programme (ITDP), extension programmes for the welfare and upliftment of rural tribals, aboriginal populations as well as modern society.

Nature in Asian Traditions of Thought : Essays in Environmental Philosophy
Nature in Asian Traditions of Thought : Essays in Environmental Philosophy/: Callicott, J. Baird & Ames, Roger T. (Eds.)Year: 1991Delhi.Sri SatguruISBN : 8170302609[ 22 cm., pp. xxi+335, Figs. ][ Price: RS. 240.00,


















For our environmental problems what is needed is a new way of looking at nature. Here, the authors turn to the Asian tradition. Asking if they can provide us with conceptual resources for addressing environmental concerns. Western environmental philosophers and some of our most distinguished representatives of Asian and comparative philosophy critically consider what Asia has to offer. The first section provides an ecological world view as a basis for comparison. Subsequent section include chapters by leading contemporary scholars in Chinese, Japanese, Indian, and Buddhist thought that explore the Western perception of Asian traditions-the perception that Asian philosophy is a rich conceptual resource for contemporary environmental thinkers. This book promises to provide an intellectual and an ethical incentive which will encourage its Western audience to reflect on the course of Western history that has led to the concerns addressed within. It would serve as valuable reading for anyone who is interested in the environment and in exploring new and traditionally Asian approaches to this crucial subject-Shigenori Nagatomo, Temple University

Buddhist Stories of the Thirteenth Century
Jewels of the DoctrineStories of the Saddharma Ratnavaliya - Dharmasena TheraTranslated by Ranjini ObeyesekereBibliotheca Indo Buddhica Series No. 102Sri Satguru Publications (Delhi), ISBN 81-7030-307-9.xxx, 259 pages.
Price: Rs. 250
Contents:
Introduction. The Saddharma Ratnavaliya: 1. The monk Cakkhupala. 2. Mattakundali. 3. The senior monk Nagasena. 4. The monk Tissa the fat. 5. The demoness Kali. 6. The monks of Kosamba. 7.

About the Book:
This is a translation of the first fifteen stories of the thirteenth century Sinhala work, the Saddharma Ratnavaliya written by the monk Dharmasena. The Saddharma Ratnavaliya is in turn an expanded version of the fifth century Pali work, the Dhammapadaattakata.
The stories are lively and entertaining, of interest to the general reader and the specialist. A skilled teacher, and reconteur, the author probes the depths of Buddhist philosophical doctrine and makes it meaningful for his lay audiences. Generations of Sri Lankans have read, heard and enjoyed the stories. They deal with the vicissitudes of the human condition and so, like all good literature have a timeless relevance and appeal.
It is a fascinating and rich repository of Buddhist culture from which I have learned much - the tales are so beguiling, and the imagery so striking.
Steven Collins, Concordia University
I like best the success with which the translator has been able to capture both the content and the flavor of the original . The translator accomplishes this task admirably, moving comfortably and authoritatively between the two languages, epochs, and cultures. All this, while preserving the leisurily flow and rhythm of the original, too. It is an elegant, beautiful work that also conforms to rigorous scholarly standards

Introduction to Indian Philosophy
Tradition and ReflectionExplorations in Indian ThoughtBy Wilhelm HalbfassSri Satguru Publications (Delhi), ISBN 81-7030-300-1Price: Rs. 400
Contents:Preface. 1. The idea of the Veda and the identity of Hinduism. 2. The presence of the Veda in Indian philosophical reflection. 3.Vedic orthodoxy and the plurality of religious traditions. 4. Vedic apologetics, ritual killing, and the foundations of ethics. 5. Human reason and Vedic revelation in Advaita Vedanta. 6. Sankara, the Yoga of Patanjali, and the so-called Yogasutrabhasyavivarana. 7. The therapeutic paradigm and the search for identity in Indian philosophy. 8. Man and Self in traditional Indian thought. 9. Competing causalities: Karma, Vedic rituals, and the natural world. 10. Homo hierarchicus: the conceptualization of the Varna system in Indian thought. Index.
About the Book
This book examines, above all, the relationship between reason and Vedic revelation, and the philosophical responses to the idea of the Veda. It deals with such topics as dharma, karma and rebirth, the role of man in the universe, the motivation and justification of human actions, the relationship between ritual norms and universal ethics, and reflections on the goals and sources of human knowledge.
Halbfass presents previously unknown materials concerning the history of sectarian movements, including the notorious "Thags" (thaka), and relations between Indian and Iranian thought. The approach is partly philosophical and partly historical and philological; to a certain extent, it is also comparative.
The author explores indigenous Indian reflections on the sources, the structure and the meaning of the Hindu tradition, and traditional philosophical responses to social and historical realities. He does not deal with social and historical realities per se; rather, basing his work on the premise that to understand these realities the reflections and constructions of traditional Indian theorists are no less significant than the observations and paradigms of modern western historians and social scientists, he explores the self-understanding of such leading thinkers as Sankara, Kumarila, Bhartrhari and Udayana.

The Compendium on Ganesha
The Compendium on GanesaBy S.K. Ramachandra RaoSri Satguru Publications (Delhi), ISBN 81-7030-828-3Price: Rs. 500
Contents: Introduction. 1. The Vedic background. 2. In the Smrti context. 3. Tantrik involvements. 4. Myths and legends. 5. Forms for worship.
From the introduction: "Ganesa's popularity is manifold. He is the favourite God of the masses. He is also the favourite subject for curio-hunters and collectors of icons. Painters and sculptors have revelled in depicting this God in a variety of forms and postures. The Tantrik practitioners have found in him a benevolent power, quick to acquire and enduring in nature. There is no religious group in the country which dispenses with his services. And more importantly, Ganesa has been subjected to endless enquiry about his origin, nature, significance, symbolism and cultic involvement. Research scholars have surrounded him with diverse theories: sociological, anthropological, cultural, historical, literary and linguistic, political and economic answers are suggested to be the secret of his popularity; agriculture, hunting, elephant capture, formation of early totemistic communities, and strife amongst them are sought to be seen in the background of this deity. Excessive use of imagination appears to be the undercurrent in all such studies, which have also incidentally brought to surface many interesting aspects of Ganesa-worship.
Literature about Ganesa is remarkable, varied and large. Every Indian language has works bearing on this deity and on his worship. Works in Sanskrit, which appear to have provided the main source material for all of them, are themselves large in number and varied in nature : puranas, kalpas, paddhatis, sadhanas, vidhis and namavalis. Representations of Ganesa in stone, metal, clay and wood, and in painting are equally numerous and varied."

Sri Garib Das Oriental Series No. 311
About the Book:
The Pauskara, belonging to the class of literature generally known as Tantra or Agama, is an important text for the comprehension of saiva Philosophy. The seventh chapter of its doctrinal section (jnanapada) is not only a remarkable source of information on saiva epistemology, but also a gold-mine of significant elements valuable for the study of early Indian logic. Umapati’s commentary on this chapter introduces new features, sometimes in a post-15th century navyanyaya dialectical style, and bears testimony to the evolution of saiva epistemology. This translation aims to bring an important aspect of saiva philosophy to the attention of scholars and to facilitate comparative studies saiva epistemology.

"The tenth canto of Sri Bhagavatam is considered by all Vaishnavas as the most valuable and sacred canto, among the 12 cantos of this Purana • as this canto deals with the divine leelas of our Lord Krishna, who is the Shri Purushothama • the Supreme Lord of the Universe.
"Shri Vallabhacharyas Sri Subodhini, is available only for the 1, 2, 3, 10 and few chapters of the 11 canto of Sri Bhagavatam. Sri Subodhini is considered as the most detailed commentary, among all the available commentaries, of Sri Bhagavatam.
"In this volume, 6 chapters of the 10 canto are dealt with, with the original verse of Sri Bhagavatam, it’s English meaning, the text of Sri Subodhini, in Sanskrit and it’s English meaning. Where ever necessary, the commentaries/explanations given by Shri Gosainji (Shri Vitthalnatha), Shri Vallabhji, Shri Laloo Bhatji and Shri Purushothamji have been also added.
"The 6 chapters respectively deal with (1) the grace of our Lord on the wives of the Brahmins in Brindavan (2) the worship of "Govardhana" mountain by preventing the "sacrifice" for Indra. (3) The lifting of "Govardhana" mountain (4) the discussion about the "glory and greatness" of our Lord between Nandagopa and other Gopas; (5) the holy event of "Govinda Pattabhishekam" (coronation or annointing ceremony of our Lord) (6) bringing back Nandagopa from the world of Varuna."
