Buddhism and Buddhist Literature in Early Indian Epigraphy, Kanai Lal Hazra
2 Buddhism and Buddhist Literature in Early Indian Epigraphy

Kanai Lal Hazra

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 2002, 81-215-1037-6 / 9788121510370, First Edition, Hard Cover, New, New, 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
This is first detailed authentic record of Buddhism as depicted in the inscriptions of ancient India. In this scholarly work the author discusses the significance of inscriptions and shows how they, as primary source material, play a major role in providing the factual underpinnings of the social, political, religious, cultural, and literary history of early India. This work, based both on the author's original study of the inscriptions of the period and the extant literature on the subject, provides an in-depth account, on the one hand, of the richness and variety of information provided by them and; on the other, a description of the development of Buddhism in Asoka's time. By skillfully weaving together all the available information, the author is able to paint a vivid portrait of Asoka, the great Mauryan ruler, and his munificent patronage of and active steps in furthering the Buddhist faith. He shows too that following the Second Buddhist Council the Buddhist world saw a schism in the Buddhist Samgha and the formation of two major sects; the Sthaviravada or the Hinayana, on the one hand, and the Theravada or the Mahasamghika, on the other, and that from these about eighteen sub-sects were born. Drawing upon some hitherto untapped inscriptional sources, this study shows how these sub-sects came into existence, their central tenets and doctrines, and their development under the patronage of the rulers of the time who played an extremely active role in their growth and development. This work is thus a valuable addition to the earlier literature on the subject, widening and deepening its ambit, and should prove of great value to historians and research scholars, and other readers interested in the development of Buddhism in its formative years.

9 Indian Epigraphy: A guide to the study of Inscriptions in Sanskrit, Prakrit and other Indo-Aryan Languages

Richard Salomon

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 1998, 81-215-0877-0 / 9788121508773, Reprint, Hard Cover, New, New, 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
This book provides a general survey of all the inscriptional material in the Sanskrit, Prakrit, and modern Indo-Aryan languages, including donative, dedicatory, panegyric, ritual, and literary texts carved on stone, metal, and other materials. This material comprises many thousands of documents dating from a range of more than two millennia, found in and the neighbouring nations of South Asia, as well as many parts of Southeast, central, and East Asia. The inscriptions are written, for the most part, in the Brahmi and Kharosthi scripts and their many varieties and derivatives. Inscriptional materials are of particular importance for the study of the Indian world, constituting the most detailed and accurate historical and chronological data for nearly all aspects of traditional Indian culture in ancient and medieval times. Richard Salomon surveys the entire corpus of Indo-Aryan inscriptions in terms of their contents, languages, scripts, and historical and cultural significance. He presents this material in such a way as to make it useful not only to Indologists but also non-specialists, including persons working in other aspects of Indian or South Asian studies, as well as scholars of epigraphy and ancient history and culture in other regions of the world.

The Alphabet: A Key to the History of Mankind, David Diringer
20 The Alphabet: A Key to the History of Mankind

David Diringer

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 2004, 81-215-0748-0 / 9788121507486, Reprint, Cloth, New, New, 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
Writing is one of the most important means of communication-the only one that can defy time and space. Whenever there has been civilization there has been writing and reading in the remote past as in the present day. Written language has become the vehicle of civilization and so of learning and education. Writing is thus one of the main aspects of culture which clearly distinguish mankind from the animal world. The purpose of this book is to provide an introduction to this fascinating subject of the history of writing or the alphabet. In the first part a historical sketch of the development of the non-alphabetic scripts is discussed and the second part deals with the origin and development of alphabet. More space is devoted to less-known problems, to those which present more interest from the standpoint of the history of writing, to the origins of some single scripts, to the connection between the various systems, and so forth rather than deal with all the alphabets of all the modern nations of the world. The book is intended for two different types of readers. The general reader will, it is hoped, welcome the information supplied by the notes on the history of some little known people and on the linguistic and ethnic problems presented by others. The student on the other hand, who may use the book as an approach to the study of different scripts and alphabets, will undoubtedly find the bibliographies a valuable aid to further study.
