Buddhist Intimations

"The book begins with a new interpretation of the history and nomenclature of Nalanda. Magadha as the inspiration of Budhhist art, the political perceptions of Asoka. Oeso on Kushan coins, the name Konarka as a Tocharian word, Sanskrit and Indology as the Indian Renaissance, Sharada and Kangara scripts, the word Roma for gypsies and references to them in Indian sources are some highlights of Indian art and Buddhism. Bhumiputra in Khotan, Buddhist sites in Kazakstan and Kyrgyzstan, Sanskrit on the Silk Route represent Central Asia. Kalila va Dimna and etymologies of Avestan words have been reinterpreted. Textual sources of the thousands of Dazu sculptures, the echos of Gupta idiom in Chinese art, calligraphy of the post-Gupta Siddham script in modern Japan, the concept of Devaraja and the identification of the faces on Bayon shed new light on these complex problems.

The collected works of Tibetan masters in Russian and Mongolian libraries have been listed. The destruction of Mongolia's Buddhist heritage during the communist regime is a chilling story of cultural genocide. The book ends with the concepts of time, self-image in Indic culture, and quantum reality vis-a-vis the theory of sunya."
