Description


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.
