The Kalas

Excerpt from The Kalas: Inaugural Dissertation Presented to the Philosophical Faculty of the University of Bern for the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy IN the following pages I have attempted to give an ao count of the various 'arts and sciences' (kalas) which are mentioned in Indian Literature, chie y, with the object of contributing towards its elucidation. The object of the es say being more literary than historical, I have not endea vored to follow the development of the arts from the beginning and to discuss the in uence of other civilisa tions upon them as well as the part played by each art in the civilisation of India. All this, however interesting and useful, is outside the scope of this essay, which confines itself to giving the names of all the Kalas that I was able to find in Indian Literature. There are, thus, nine lists of Kalas given here with their various readings. Another list differing from all the above ones is mentioned as occurring in the Kalpasamhita (a book whose name is not found in the Catalogas Catalogorum) by Jivagosvamin. His commentary to the Srimad Bhagavata actually gives the first three items of this list paraoittajnata' (telepathy), durasravanaduradarsanacinta (clairaudience and clairvoyance) About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
