Kapila Sutra

Kapila Sutra is the original foundational work of the Samkhya system. The samkhya system is one of the oldest philosophical schools of India and sage Kapila is considered to be its founder-father. Ishvara Krishna, in his Samkhya Karika, clearly mentions that the Samkhya system was fully enumerated by the supreme Sage Kapila and, out of compassion, Kapila transmitted the knowledge of Samkhya to Asuri who, in turn, handed it over to Pancasikha, and through the guru shishya tradition, knowledge of Samkhya continued to flourish up to Ishvara Krishna. Ishvara Krishna has summarily presented the same doctrine in his Samkhya Karika. But the original work of Kapila Sutra was lost long ago. The present Samkhya Sutra, which is attributed to Kapila Muni, is certainly the work of an unknown author written in the 14th to 15th century CE, because it contains refutations of doctrines of several schools of thought and also a number of parables that could be dated to a later period.   The word sa

Kalhana – Sanskrit Poet Historian Of Kashmir

Kalhana, Kashmiri poet, was the author of Rajatarangini (river of the royal lineage) of the 12 th century AD. The poem consists of 3500 verses divided into eight tarangas (waves). It is perhaps the earliest formal textbook on the history of India in Sanskrit. The work chronicles the reigns of the kings of Kashmir from 2448 BC to 1148 AD and contains political, social, and other valuable information relating to Kashmir from ancient times. Kalhana was born at Parihasapura in Kashmir as the son of Campaka, a minister in the court of King Harsha of Kashmir. As the son of an influential minister, Kalhana got opportunities to gather intimate knowledge about the niceties of the royal court and to develop personal contacts with political bigwigs on whom the destiny of the country very much depended. He also acquired sufficient knowledge about the topography of the entirety of Kashmir. In this way, Kalhana became well-equipped for writing a faithful history of Kashmir and its people.

Kanva Samhita – Origin – Facts

 Kanva Samhita is the older of the two extant sakhas (recensions) of Shukla Yajurveda. Kanva Samhita and Madhyandina Samhita differ slightly in arrangement, variants and phonetics. Thus there are only slight variations in the patha (text) at certain places; otherwise, the subjects, as well as the sequence, in both the sakhas are the same. Kanva Sakha is more in vogue in South India while Madhyandina Sakha prevails more in the North. According to tradition, Shukla Yajurveda was acquired by Maharishi Yajnavalkya from the Sun God, because he (Yajnavalkya) was dissatisfied with the Krishna Yajurveda School of Vaisampayana. He discarded the prose part and kept only the verses in his Samhita. Yajnavalkya first taught it to his fifteen disciples, who were regarded as responsible for founding fifteen different recensions. Of these fifteen, only two have survived. Traditionally the Kanva recension tops the list of the fifteen recensions, but Madhyandina has gained a larger number of followe

Kantaka Sodhana – Criminal Justice In Ancient India

Kantaka Sodhana, literally means “removal of the thorns”, is used with reference to criminal justice in ancient India. In his Arthashastra (iv.1), Kautilya mentions the cases that are subject to kantaka-sodhana. These are – theft, murder, burglary or forcible entry, trespassing, black marketing, poisoning, illegal coining, injury to property, criminal negligence, violation of caste rules, boycott and other acts of workers and laborers, plotting to control the prices, hoarding of food articles and thereby creating artificial shortage, and fraud in weighting and measuring. The main objective of kantaka Sodhana was to allow people to live in peace and abide by the laws as envisaged in Dharmasastra. The system of justice was not expected to be harsh. For instance, no suspect (sankitaka) was to be arrested after an interval of three days from the supposed commission of an offence except on strong proof of his guilt. Arrest on mere suspicion is not allowed. Abetment was punishable, such

Ivory Carving In Ancient Kerala

In ancient times elephants abounded in the forests of Kerala and larger Hindu temples and rich landlords maintained elephants. Therefore ivory carving was practiced in ancient Kerala. When elephants die their tusks are used for artistic carving of several kinds. While a whole tusk is sometimes used for carving grand sights like a temple procession, the tusk generally cut into short cylindrical pieces and then cut vertically to form flat pieces on which are executed fine carvings of deities. Ivory carving was a lucrative profession carried on in temple towns. Examples of the rich history of ivory carving are the ivory palanquin in the Mattancherry palace and the 18 th century ivory throne of the Travancore family in the Ranga Vilasam palace at Travancore. Etching on ivory, too, was practiced in ancient Kerala, where thin slabs of polished ivory were covered with a coating of a wax. On this the design was cut by a pointed instrument and then bitten into the ivory by the acid essence

The disciples get it by devotion to the Guru. “Gu” Kara means the darkness and “Ru” Kara means the remover of the darkness.
