Description

This anthology in three volumes is the outcome of a monumental project. It consists of selections in translation of Indian literature from the beginning to AD 1100. Volume One covers Vedic Sanskrit and Pali texts together since they represent two scriptural traditions which have given rise to two major religions of the world.

The selections of passages included in these volumes focus on the Indian world view, man's life in general and particular, and how these are reflected in literature. The anthology provides a fairly detailed historical survey which reveals the major trends and changes in the development of literatures during the given period.

Volume One covers Vedic Sanskrit and Pali texts together since they represent two scriptural traditions which have given rise to two major religions of the world. These texts depict the entire spectrum of the journey of human life - from desire to knowledge or from darkness to light; from the ephemeral to the eternal.
