Preface

This study on Culture & Aesthetics on Durga in Nepal Mandala upholds the cultural-religious assessment attentively on aesthetic perspective of Hindu-Buddhist myths. This-elation to goddess of cure, resistance and wisdom is the sacrosanct pedigree of Durga's energy. Aesthetically this is transmitting the Sakta milieu since medieval mores. This labor rests plainly on cultural influence of mother-goddess in Kathmandu Valley by austerity of Sakta shrines. Its religious sequence involves a separate study of 'Astamatrika cult of Nepalamandala' for justification of Tantric persuade in Newar study. Further, it's intrinsic cultural phenomena and socio-religious study serves the basis for edifying elements to New Nepal's inclusive integration. This new obtain after hard-hitting people's struggle was spirited in victory as aspired by refurbished statecraft into republican model from long-established regality to grassroots public. In this, the consent of Sakambari-Durga can be incredibly cogitated for the historic people's victory from Vanadevi to janadevi. Further to enrich Dhanadevi and Santanadevi as the aim of "Laksmi" in opulence and well- beings of the state. This study will facilitate the norm of struggle for the feat of victory in prosperity.

This fourth work of the author is chained with his previous books on cultural religious and aesthetics studies line. It was about to publish in Dec 2010 but somehow went otherwise after peer reviewing for cancellation by official reason. I humbly thank Rupa & Co., for freeing me to work my own on this publication. Thence some considerable changes were made adding a new chapter to this book. Of course, I humbly value those peer-reviewers and solemnly belong to that convention. But penitently it is inconvenient to admit in our home- grown caucus to all. And would be absurd to repeat Nepalese soul but a short rejoinder will state this five years long envisioning this book. And, its objective was not just to translate the text into traditional character like propagating apparatus. Nor it seeks just to narrate the festival events as the cultural thesis. Instead it analyses the source of cultural and aesthetic motifs on Durga perspective in Nepala-Mandala.

Since, this book is self-motivated and self-sponsored for indigenous impetus with limited resources, but aware in cultural preservation and conservation 0 four aesthetic esteem which might have skipped from our vestibules of contemporary knowledge, if not yet been recorded properly. Those intangible insights are due to lack of resources and limitation not yet been accomplished by a single-hand knowledge. But I have tried my level best to justify those estimable sacred attributes on this cultural study.

In order to integrate some ambiguous absurdity are set out from ethno-cultural and spiritual study. Some chapters have been revised with current adjoins of peer reviewers' demand. Scholars 'perusal to this work is cooperative to researchers and students of Nepalese religion, aesthetics, culture, history and archaeology.

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
