Description
Foreword

Kautilya's 'Arthasastra' is one of the greatest works of Ancient India.It is full of a great deal of information about Ancient India,much of which is still relevant.The work contains a number of technical terms which are somewhat obscure today.That is why this project was undertaken.In this Project, the authors were ably assisted by Sm.Shomosree Roy Chaudhury Project Assistant,DSA Sanskrit,for which the authors are grateful to her.WE hope this work will be of use to scholars.

Thiru, UK
Thank You very much for this wonderful opportunity for helping people to acquire the spiritual treasures of Hinduism at such an affordable price.
Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
