Description About the author Contents
Buddhist Art and Thought encompasses a number of themes related to the study of cultural interflow among Asian countries, sharing philosophy, literature, arts and architecture, systems of polity and ways of living and thinking. It is a journey through the history of dissemination of Buddhism by monk-scholars to Central, East, Far East, and Southeast Asia. It brings forth the manifestations of divine forms of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, other deities of the Buddhist pantheon, colossal images, luminous mandalas and meditation. It throws light on the spread of the Buddhist Sanskrit literature, Indian scripts, inscriptions and Sanskrit manuscripts, and Buddhist ceremonies and rituals, beyond the boundaries of India. Contribution of the Indologists as pilgrims in the world of vision and intellection is another area touched upon by the scholar through her research.
