Essays in early Indian architecture by Ananda Kentish Coomaraswamy( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With minute filigree and a staggering vision, Ananda K. Coomaraswamy (1877-1947), limned the art and culture of South Asia for a world of readers in the 20th century. His penetrating attention to both the mind and soul of India's great civilization has provided a model for generations of Asian and Western scholars. The Indira Gandhi National Center for the Arts has initiated a project to bring out the complete Collected Works of Coomaraswamy in thematically arranged and re-edited volumes, of which this volume of Essays in Early Indian Architecture, edited by Professor Michael W. Meister, is the fourth. Coomaraswamy's contribution to the history of Architecture in India was limited but profound. In particular, his probing analysis of texts and sculpted reliefs in order to reconstruct the extraordinary wooden architecture of early India was an act of great scholarship and a foundation on which further histories of India's exceptional architectural tradition have all been constructed. That three of Coomaraswamy's essays were published in a journal, Eastern Art, that ceased publication after only three issues, and that an important fourth essay on "Huts and Related Temple Types" survived only in manuscript, have made access to Coomaraswamy's accomplishments in this area difficult for most students and scholars. This volume for the first time brings together these four major essays along with Coomaraswamy's analysis of "Indian Architectural Terms." An Introductory essay by Michael W. Meister on "The Language and Process of Early Indian Architecture" connects Coomaraswamy's foundational essays with more recent scholarship on the origination of India's vast tradition of temple architecture. An Afterword, with Joseph Rykwert, on "Adam's House and Hermits' Huts," presents a Conversation with a major Western architectural historian concerning Coomaraswamy and the profound utility and significance of his work

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

6 editions published between 1993 and 2013 in English and held by 133 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
