Kevala-bodhi: Buddhist and Jaina History of the Deccan, Volume 1
Bharatiya Kala Prakashan, 2004 - Buddhism - 386 pages
Kevala-Bodhi: Buddhist and jaina History of the Deccan is a collection of papers with a special focus on two religions that left an inedible mark on the history of the Deccan and, in turn marked a visible change in the way both these religions developed over the early historic and early medieval times. Though each of these has been dealt with separately in monographs and research papers in the past, this is the first time that these religions have been discussed together in terms of the trajectory of their spread to and entrenchement in the Deccan. The path chosen by each in this regard was undoubtedly different and this is precisely what makes their discussion together valuable and interesting. This spatial and chronological forcus of the papers in this volume is wide. In terms of region it also includes discussion on areas contiguous ot the Deccan so as to bring in the inter-regional contact and dissemination of ideas that was dynamic rather than closeted in compartments of space and time.
