Symbols of Art, Religion and Philosophy
ISBN Number : 81-7076-013-5
(Hardcover - May 1988)
The present book is unique and one of its own kind. During the last decade, several books on symbols have been published by oriental publishers but not a single book has touched those symbols which are tackled here by the present author. More so, almost all the books described Indian symbols partially. Sometimes, they elucidated symbols with the literary evidences and sometimes with the help of archaeological proofs. Elsewhere, they have been interpreted through the art forms. The present writer, being unhappy by the partial approach of different authors, has tried to analyze through her discussions the nine symbols as represented in the art forms, religions and philosophies of India. Besides the elaborate treatment given to the nine symbols of Rudrāksha, Chakra, Prabhā Maṇḍala, Mudrā, Śalagrama, Swastika, Śikhara, Circumambulation (Parikrama) and Philosopher's stone (Parasmani), the author has deciphered more than hundred symbols connected with the studies of these symbols. This book has been devoted to the discovery of India through symbols.
