"The volume Sahrdaya, consists of 26 memorable and penetrative, essays on Indian and South East Asian Art and religion, by eminent scholars from Austria, Germany, Italy, France, USA, Canada, Korea, Thailand, Cambodia and Indonesia, besides India. Beginning with an admirable study of Sun as Martanda who is identified with the supreme Siva in the Advaitic Kashmir Saivism, through the text Samba Pancasika and its commentary by Kshemaraja, the book shows that the Kashmir Saiva system integrated the physical senses into spiritual life. The tradition of identifying ruling monarch and consecrating him as Bhairava (Buddhist) and the over 12 feet high stone portrait of Adityavarman of Java is studied. A comprehensive survey of Saivism in Thailand based on archaeological and epigraphical material including the latest finds, form the subject of succeeding essays. Next is a study of the impact of Mahabharata by sage Vyasa on sculptural portrayal of different phases of Cambodian Art, as at of Benteay Srei and Ankhor Vat. The Korean people's faith and adoration of Avalokitesvara (Buddhist) as the embodiment of compassion (Karuna), is outlined. The birth of Siva Sadyojata as the child of Parvati, portrayed in a Pala sculpture of Bangladesh draws our attention. The role of different temple attendants in festivals during the Chola age in 10-13 cent, is a fascinating fresh approach to the study of religion. With rare photographs, the life of Devadasis (dancing girls) in the 18 and 19 cent, is an aspect of Indian life that is presented. The need to study the living artist communities is stressed in another article. Studies in the ancient Indian Janapadas, given in Mahabharata based on numismatic evidence; a critical analysis of Talamana - the theory of measuring images; the evolution of temples of Central India; the diffusion of Bhikshatana iconography; a rare temple to Vastu purusha and many more are other important contributions on art in this valuable volume."
