International Conference on MARC Aurel Stein with special reference to South and Central Asian Legacy: Recent Discoveries and Research

This Conference aims to focus on the life and legacy of Aurel Stein who like, Xuanzang- the traveller and scholar travelled through the inhospitable Silk Road, encircling the Taklamakan Desert, and unearthed a great civilization which remained hidden in the sand dunes for centuries.

Stein was the first among Europeans to understand the ethos of Kashmir’s culture. This great savant explored the inner essence and beauty of Sanskrit literature especially the Rajatarangini of Kalhana. Stein proved his utmost dedication and devotion by editing and translating Kalhana’s chronicle and made his debut as a historical topographer.

Stein was not the first westerner to reach Dunhuang, China but he was the first to reach the sealed library (library 17 of Dunhuang Caves, Gansu, NW of China) and to acquire a large part of its contents from this library.

Stein was a meticulous record-keeper and took notebooks and field diaries to record all aspects of his expeditions. And his record keeping has been invaluable for the study of the sites he explored and the excavated artefacts.

This Conference will provide opportunity for scholars and students to know about this great personality who devoted his life in understanding the great civilization i.e. India, Central Asia and China.

IGNCA is organizing Exhibition Aurel Stein: Fascinated by the Orient-life and work of Sir Aurel Stein in collaboration with The Library and Information Centre of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, and also in collaboration with Hungarian cultural information centre, Delhi. Dr. Agnesh from Budabest has curated this exhibition. Dr. Rita Jeney from Hungary is also participating in the conference.

Images of India - a Fascinating Journey through Time

The Curated Exhibition Images of India-a fascinating journey through time showcases the illustrated sketches, drawings, lithographs, etchings, wood-cut etc. of 18th 19th century rare books from the IGNCA archives which throw ample light on the art, architecture and various aspects of Indian culture and the contents provide information about the past which has got faded and distorted due to various reasons. The first-hand accounts of foreigners visiting India are undoubtedly valuable for the inquisitive scholars in the field of art and culture. The travel literature spans all fields of interest. While in the earlier travel accounts of the Europeans there is precedent of commercial and colonial interest which later on shifts to publication of recreational travel literature of the late 18th and 19th centuries. The contributors of the 18th 19th century European publications were members of British army and navy; surveyors, engineers, medical staff, travelers etc. Driven by the curiosity and being fascinated by what they saw in India – the lands and the diverse inhabitants, customs, as also beliefs prevalent amongst the people, the European travelers made their way to the most interior and the remotest parts to have an understanding of the regions. Much of what they wrote was intended for amusement to their readers, as well as for information and instruction. The exhibition give glimpses of old landscapes of the important cities; architecture of temples, mosques, tombs and living quarters; social life during the period and details of musical instruments, costumes, transportation and other objects of interest. The exhibition intends to make the scholars aware about the great variety of books on Indian art, architecture, culture, religion of the 19th and 20th century. The rich intellectual content and the matching illustrations of the books reveal to the readers of the state of the society when the country was passing through a transition phase, as a result of cross cultural currents, experiencing new influences from the west, adapting to new conditions and at the same time retaining the age old values, tradition and customs.

The film, in three parts, takes you on a journey through the fascinating and no less inspiring story of Buddha’s life, his teaching, Buddhist practices, the emergence of two sects – Theravada and Mahayana, and the coming of Buddhism to Sikkim via Tibet in 15th – 16th Century. The ultimate goal is to reach Buddhahood a stage beyond Nirvana and the path is through six ‘paramitas’ or transcendental and wisdom. It is not an easy job to become a monk, who has to undergo nine year of hard training in a monastery. The monastery is a complete world by itself, with all the facilities. Monastery is not a simple building, but has set design, intricately carved with mural paintings and structures, in which Mani wheels and Thangka paintings have their own significance. Watch how Tibetan Buddhism and culture gets merged with indigenous practices in Sikkim. Have a peep into the life of Lepchas
