A highly original discussion of problems of philosophy of religion from the lndian point of view. The exposition shows that the Christian theologian who will take the trouble to study Indian religion seriously, and not merely & ldquo;historically, & rdquo; will find in its teachings abundant extrinsic and probable proofs of the truth of Christian doctrine; and may at the same time realize the essential unity of all religions

The dance of Shiva : fourteen Indian essays by Ananda K Coomaraswamy( Book )

80 editions published between 1948 and 2018 in English and held by 959 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The life of Ananda Coomaraswamy was given to interpreting the East to the West, and often the West itself. Throughout these beautifully written, integrated essays he puts forward the Indian way of life as expressed in art and religion, to serve as a lesson to Western peoples who have been caught up in a search for happiness solely through material accumulation. Reminding us of the resources in our own traadition, he suggests that the vigor of European action must be united with the serenity of Asiatic thought if civilization is not to destroy itself. Coomaraswamy's message is particularly appropriate now when many in the West feel that our culture has reached a dead end, and are casting about for a new ideal that can replace that of Faustian mam." -- Back cover

"Coomaraswamy's Introduction to Indian Art traverses the historic panorama of Indian art, from its Indo-Sumerian and Vedic-Mound beginnings to the various peaks reached during the Maurya, Sunga, Andhra, Kusana and Gupta periods and beyond the seas to further India and Indonesia. It is a handbook of immense value both to the beginner and scholar alike." "This present reprint, appearing after more than half a century, has been ably edited by Mrs. Coomaraswamy and incorporates new material earmarked for the book by Coomaraswamy himself."--Jacket

Spiritual authority and temporal power in the Indian theory of government by Ananda K Coomaraswamy( Book )

34 editions published between 1942 and 2013 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A literary work built up with parallel citations is apt to grow in the compass of the author himself, from his encyclopaedic scholarship. This revised edition of one of Coomaraswamy's most significant writings is now being issued by incorporating his own additions to the printed first edition of 1942." "The Indian theory of government is expounded on the basis of the textual sources, mainly of the Brahmanas and the Rgveda. The mantra in the Aitareya Brahmana-viii, 27 by which the Priest addresses the King, spells out the relation between the spiritual and the temporal power. This 'marriage formula' has its analogous applications in the cosmic, political, family and individual spheres of operation, in each by the conjunction of complementary agencies." "The welfare of the community in each case depends upon a succession of obediences and loyalties; that of the subjects to the dual control of King and Priest, that of the King to the Priest, and that of all to the principle of an External Law (Dharma) as King of Kings. The King is such by Divine Right, but by no means an absolute monarch. He may do only what is correct under the Law. Self-control is the sine qua non for the successful government of others; the primary victory is that of the Inner Man." ""The application is to the 'King', the 'man of action' and 'artist' in any domain whatever. There is nothing that can be truly and well done or made except by the man in whom the marriage of the Sacerdotium (brahma) and the Regnum (ksatra) has been consummated, nor can any peace be made except by those who have made their peace with themselves."" "This is the fifth volume in the series of Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts programme of reprinting the 'Collected Works of A. K. Coomaraswamy.'"--BOOK JACKET
