Descripción Aditya Prakashan, New Delhi, 2013. N.A. Condición: New. 568p., 171pls., (76)col. pls., gloss., ind., 25cm., This book is a survey of Buddhist art, literature, monasteries and general history of Mongolian lands, the transcreation of the 6000 plus works in the Kanjur and Tanjur, highlights of Lamaism across the centuries, the writing of 220 philosophical, ritual, hagiographical and historical works under the Manchu dynasty, and so on. The development continued till 1920s when the communists took over. It also relates the destruction of 750 large monasteries uprooted down to their foundations, burning of five million xylographs and manuscripts according to Prof. Rinchen, the desecration of Erdeni Dzu and Choijin Lamin Sum the major cathedrals of Buddhism, the heart-rending genocide of monks who were herded into trucks length-wise and crosswise as they do with wood (none ever saw them): the book is a moving record of the barbarous destruction by the communists. The role of iconic intellectuals like Prof. Rinchen, Lobsang Vandan, Damdin Suren in these lurid years can be read in their own words. The anguished letters of Rinchen on the annihilation of the Mongol persona and the substitution of the Mongol script by Cyrillic are recorded here for the first time. The complete wiping out of monasteries, burning of books, millions of sacred images melted in furnaces in Kalmykia and Buryatia and now their renaissance are told in extenso. The discovery of the tales of Bhoja, Vikramaditya and Krsna unknown to modern research till then, the microfilming of the Tanjur, and the international networking of Mongolistics across Asia, Europe, USA and USSR by the efforts of Prof. RaghuVira has been narrated. The expeditions of Prof. RaghuVira and his son Lokesh Chandra were the silent hope of the Mongols that Maitreya would descend one day under the blue sky of the grasslands of Chinggis Khan. It is an absorbing and detailed account of these expeditions, of the admission of Mongolia to the UNO, the regeneration of the state, the renewal of life, the resurgence of culture and the renaissance of Mongol identity. The monastic boom, the return of colossi by Russia, the study of traditional medicine, return of the spring from the wounded winters, the celebration of 2220 years of the Mongol state, and personal experiences of the author for the last sixty years make the book a must for the study of Buddhism in Mongolia. Lokesh Chandra is Director of the International Academy of Indian Culture, a premier research institution for Asian cultures. He has been Vice-President, Indian Council for Cultural Relations, and Chairman, Indian Council for Historical Research. He is a well-known historian and renowned scholar of Tibetan, Mongolian, SE Asian, and Sino-Japanese Buddhism. He has also served as a member of the Indian Parliament. In 2006, he was honored with the Padma Bhushan. He was born in 1927, obtained his Masters degree in 1947 from Punjab University (Lahore) and followed it with a Doctorate from the State University of Utrecht (Netherlands). Starting with an understanding of the most ancient of Indias spiritual expression enshrined in the Vedic tradition, he has moved on to the interlocution between India, Tibet, Mongolia, China, Korea, Japan, south-east Asia, Indonesia and the Indo-European languages. He has studied over twenty languages, and has 602 works and text editions to his credit. Nº de ref. del artículo: 530623
