Elements of Indian Aesthetics (3 Volumes, In 5 Parts)

S.N. Ghoshal Sastri (Author)
Synopsis Indian Aesthetics Combines in it three-fold concepts: Light, Beauty and Happiness; what illumines one's own mind, beautifies inner and outer environments and serves mellifluous Happiness that drips down from the thousandpetalled lotus of the Sahasrara (cerebrum). Indian Aesthetics does not come under any recognised system of Indian Philosophy-Theist, Atheist and Secular; but the journey of all the systems and Cults aims at the eternal reservoir of Satyam, Sivam, Sundram (Truth, Beauty and Bliss) that is assures and acts as (a system to see and observe) an agency to aisthanomai. It is the cream of Indian civilization of pre-historic, vedic classic, mediaeval and modern ages and an invaluable contribution of the Vedic, Mythic and Esoteric Literatures and Cultures.
