Summary : From the linga of Shiva to ritual lamps, from a Vishnu temple to a heap of stones streaked with sacred vermilion, from illustrations of the epic adventures of Rama to a terracotta goddess figurine, the art Hinduism has inspired over the centuries is as rich and various as the religion itself - and, for most Westerners, as unknown. Hindu Art offers a key to this mystery. A splendid, richly illustrated introduction, the book opens to readers the manifold glories of the religious art of the Indian subcontinent. The narratives that Hindu artists illustrate, the gods they depict, and the forms they observe are the products of thousands of years of tradition and development. In a survey that stretches back to prehistory, T. Richard Blurton discusses religious, cultural and historical influences that figure in Hindu art, as well as those that Hinduism shares with Buddhism and Jainism. Tracing the development of Hindu art, he shows how it has come to embrace the widely varying styles of regions from Nepal to Afghanistan, from Sri Lanka to Bangladesh. Against this historical background, Blurton considers the use of images from the three major cults of Hinduism - the worship of Shiva, Vishnu and the Great Goddess - in painting, sculpture and temple architecture. As fascinating as it is informative, Hindu Art offers invaluable insight into one of the world's great and ancient cultures. It will prove an indispensable resource for anyone with an interest in the art of India.

Summary : "There are three great fundamentals of Hindu civilization: the caste system, child marriage, and the Ars Amoris Indica. The first two have been dealt with again and again in exhaustive fashion. But a comprehensive work on the Hindu Art of Love which would include the doctrines of the most important eroticists, has never before been attempted in English. The Kama Sutra of Vatsya Yana and the Ananga Ranga of Kalyana Malla are the only erotics, out of the hundred odd treatises, which have appeared in English translations up to this time."The ambiguous attitude towards sex in English-speaking countries accounts for this strange omission. And when we consider the fact that in India sexual love has been sanctified to a greater degree than anywhere else in the world, the omission becomes even more deplorable. Nowhere else has the physiological sexual make-up of women been studied with such minute and adoring reverence as in these Hindu erotic treatises."Apart from its interrelation to the caste system and child marriage, the social and religious significance of Hindu love is such that no one can begin to understand India without some knowledge of it."Edward Windsor
