About The Book

This book is an attempt to study the changing social conditions in India during a period which is definitely influenced by Yajnavalkya.

The whole book has been divided into eleven chapters, each dealing with a separate aspect of social life. The chief source for this book, of course, is Yajnavalkya Smriti itself, but coins and inscriptions have also helped in substantiating my conclusions.

Written in jargon-free language in an easy and direct style, the book is factual, objective and analytical and highly readable.

About The Author

Shri Bijayendra Narayan Singh teaches History at Purnea College, Pumea. He graduated in History from Patna College (University of Patna) from where he also did his M.A. in the same subject. He obtainted his Ph.D. from L.N. Mithla University, Darbhanga and is actively engaged in teaching and reaserch.

Preface

Born and brought up at Jalalgarh, my home village in Purnea district of Bihar, I can claim to be an inheritor of Maithili culture but in strict geographical as well as historical respective Jalalgarh remained somewhat cut off from the main current of Maithili culture. When prior to my joining Purnea College on 4-2-81 I was working in A.N.D. College, Shahpur Patori as lecturer I became rather close to mainland Mithila. While selecting a topic for my research I was naturally attracted to work on something related to Mithila. There could not be better representative of Mithila than Yajnavalkya and my close association with social history of ancient India right from my student days induced me to take up to the study on the present topic, though later on during the course of my research I discovered that Yajnavalkya in this work is not necessarily the same as the famous friend and philosopher of the king Janaka of Mithila. But the work had been begun and-I went ahead with it and now I have the satisfaction that it has been completed. This work is an attempt to study the changing social conditions of India during a period which is definitely influenced by Yajnavalkya.

The whole work has been divided into eleven chapters, each dealing with a separate aspect of social life. The chief source for preparing this work has, of course, been such litarary works as the Yajnavalkya Smriti itself and commentaries there on as well as other works, but coins and inscriptions have also helped in substantiating my conclusion.

I would specially like to acknowledge my gratitude to Dr. Ratneshwar Mishra, Reader in History, L.N. Mithila University, Darbhanga, for his active interest, encouragement & helpful suggestions, without which, this book could not have been complete.

My thanks are also to the librarians and other members of the staff of Patna University & L.N. Mithila University libraries, but special mention must be made of Shri Ramashankar Sharma the Assistant libranian of L.N. Mithila university, who helped me in tracing out valuable & relevant books.

My well wishers Sri Jai Narayan and Sri Amitava Sinha helped me in many ways and they also deserve to be thanked. Last but not least, I am grateful to my wife, Sindhu, my son Abhisheka and my daughter Anamika, who besides giving me valuable suggestions regarding this book, kept me free from the anxieties of household affairs.

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.
