Understanding Ramayana as Rama Within
G. L. Narayan

Understanding Ramayana as Rama Within is an attempt at enacting the Ramayana using the body - both the physical and the metaphysical ones - as the stage. With Ravana representing the ego, Laksmana the body, Sita the mind, and Ram the soul, the book traces the spiritual journey from the outward to the inward. It speaks of the divinity that is man. With vibrant paintings and colour plates, the book is as much a visual treat as it is an intellectual delight.

Vasantagauravam - Essays in Jainism
Jayandra Soni

Vasantagauravam is a collection of fifteen essays on the many facets of Jaina philosophy, and its practice, particularly in South India, between the second and the thirteenth century. Drawing from archaeological findings and ancient texts, it covers a range of topics - from Ajitasenacarya's status in the sect to the patronage extended by the Kasamba, Calukya and Hoysala dynasties to the rise of women ascetics in the Jaina tradition. Furthermore, it looks west, and studies the occidental scholar's perception of Jain thought. With its objective analyses and valuable insights, the book is certain to enthrall spiritualists and seekers.
