Daily Life in Ancient India by Jeannine Auboyer
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The nine centuries described in this book, ending with the political upheavals of the seventh century AD, coincide with a golden age of Indian civilization. In the context of political and religious enlightenment, the Brahmanic and Buddhist religions flourished side by side; artistic creation was at its height and India's most beautiful monasteries and shrines were founded then. Throughout DAILY LIFE IN ANCIENT INDIA, Jeannine Auboyer evokes the fascinating complexities of India's ancient epoch, with its caste system, its endless ritual, and the ceremonial nature of human relations - even in the matters of love. Here is the perfect introduction to one of the world's most noble and refined civilizations.
