The Battle for Sanskrit: Is Sanskrit Political or Sacred, Oppressive or Liberating, Dead or Alive?

The Battle for Sanskrit: Is Sanskrit Political or Sacred, Oppressive or Liberating, Dead or Alive?
Language: English | AZW3 / EPUB | ISBN-10: 9351775380 | 2016 | 488 pages | 0.9 MB / 0.8 MB

The book explores the battle between Western and traditional approaches to Sanskrit and sanskriti (civilization). It exposes the dominant Western scholarship, in particular its subversive allegation that the Sanskrit heritage has been a political weapon for social oppression. Without adequate critical inquiry,Indian English-language elites have internalized such lopsided ideas and enshrined them in various mainstream institutions. Controversial and thought-provoking, the book proposes a set of debates for the intellectual kurukshetra (battlefield) pertaining to the social, political, historical and contemporary dimensions of Indian sanskriti. It is intended as a wake-up call to the traditionalists and seeks to inspire a home team to pursue such debates.

Most people would probably agree that any serious attempt to learn Indian Philosophy requires some knowledge of Sanskrit, at least enough to recognize a verb form and consult a full Sanskrit Dictionary. However, when dealing with philosophical texts written in English,
in which frequent use of Sanskrit philosophical terminology is adopted, to use a full dictionary
such as Monnier-Williams or Apte becomes unpractical. This is a particularly serious
problem when one attempts to read philosophical essays written in English
by Indian scholars, who often take for granted a lot of terms considered well-known
among educated Indians. Unfortunately in the West even some readers who consider themselves quite educated on Indian philosophy may be
surprised, when reading academic books written by Indian scholars,
by the amount of Sanskrit terms that they never met before.
Here is a wonderful sourcebook for transliterated(i.e. roman lettering) terms with definitions in English for the new Vedanta or Sanskrit scholar or spriritual seeker.
In addition, the Devanagari script(i.e. Sanskrit) is in a nice, clear printing.
