Inhaltsangabe: In this book the author has worked at a critical approach in the study of the Silpasastras. Contrary to the received opinion that the past is directly accessible to us via the sacrosanct fragments of the texts, the author argues what they only make sense within a framework, which is necessarily the Citrasutra, comprising nine adhyayas or chapters of the third khanda of the Visnudharmaottara Pirana, is posited as a much "discovered" and technical and context-specific sense of the terms.

Buchbeschreibung Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts/MLBD, New Delhi, India, 2001. Hardcover. Buchzustand: New. Zustand des Schutzumschlags: New. The Citrasutra belongs to the Vi??udharmottra Pura?a, Ka??a III, Chapters 35-43. The Pura?as - Agni, Vi??u, Matsya and Marka??eya - provide a necessary bridge between the ritual texts and the texts of the particular arts. The Pura?as are neither a sub-stream of popular discourse as considered by some nor are they narratives of complex mythologies and legends manifesting flights of poetic imagination or shrouding social histories only. Indeed they are another mode of communicating the same ontological and epistemological concerns of the Vedas and the Upni?ads and the systematization of method of the Brahma?as as they provide another method of relating the abstract and the concrete, the universal and the specific, the philosophic and the artistic. The chapters on the arts in the Pura?a have to be comprehended against the larger concerns. There is the endeavour to contain multi-dimensions of concepts and meanings through narrative myth and its transformation into a vocabulary of formal elements in the arts, singly and together. The Vi??udharmottara Pura?a occupies a predominant position among the Upapura?as and is also related to the discourse within the Pura?as. Moreover it is central to the discourse on the arts, both preceding and succeeding it. The voluminous text can be viewed only within the framework of the Pura?as or it can be placed through Kha??a III in the mainstream of the discourse on the arts from the Natyasastra to the medieval texts. Its contents can be profitably compared with those of both its predecessors as also successors.The Citrasutra constitutes an important cluster in the larger concerns of the Vi??udharmottara Pura?a on both the nature of art, artistic expression and communication as also its insistence on establishing a meaningful interdependence and inter-relationship between and among the arts.Printed Pages: 338.
