Indology and Marxist Hermeneutics

Indology and Marxist Hermeneutics

Date: 2009
Creator: Jain, Pankaj
Description: This article discusses Indology and Marxist Hermeneutics. Although Indian civilization has been one of the most extensively researched fields in the Western Humanities departments, it remains one of the most misinterpreted subjects. Scholars have applied various theories and methods to study this ancient field. However, often their analyses and interpretations fail to do justice to this complex tradition. In the name of "scientific objectivity", they have often applied their own subjective bias. In this paper, I endeavor to demonstrate how the theories of Marx have misinterpreted Indian culture.

Reinterpreting Yajña as Vedic Sacrifice

Reinterpreting Yajña as Vedic Sacrifice

Date: 2011
Creator: Jain, Pankaj
Description: This paper is about reinterpreting yajna as Vedic sacrifice. Vedic rituals, yajnas, were one of the most important socio-religious activities in Vedic India. In this article, the author endeavors to problematize the term "sacrifice," which is often used to translate the word yajna in Indological writings. Although Monier-Williams (MW) dictionary defines yajnas as - "worship, devotion, prayer, praise; act of worship or devotion, offering, oblation, sacrifice (the former meanings prevailing in Veda, the latter in post-Vedic literature)", some of the primary meanings of the word yajna seem to have been sidelined with the scholarly emphasis on "sacrifice" as the chief interpretation. Several Vedicists have already expressed their disapprovals with equating yajna with sacrifice.
