 DESCRIPTION
spacer

From Beyond the Eastern Horizon is a collection of essays published in honour of Professor Lokesh Chandra, on the opportune occasion of him having witnessed a thousand full moons, which in the tradition of the East earns him the epithet Sahasra Candradarsi.

Following a biographical sketch of Prof. Chandra by his niece Manjushree, the book offer a varied range of papers written by scholars who are all known for their contributions to the study of ancient Indian cultural influences abroad, particularly insular and mainland Southeast Asia. Their essays cover the fields of art history, temple architecture, Old Javanese and Sanskrit literature, religion and ancient politics. The rich texture of this felicitation volume is a fitting tribute to Professor Chandra, Director of the International Academy for Indian Culture, who has authored volumes of path-breaking research works, including the well-known series of Cultural Horizons of India. Focusing on the eastern horizon of Southeast Asia, this volume covers only a segment of Prof. Chandra’s wide-ranging scholarly activities and achievements.
