Himalaya calling

by CHUNG TAN | 18 May 2015
Synopsis
Himalaya Calling: The Origins of China and India will take the reader through a journey through the periods of time and places starting from the beginning of civilization from the Himalayas and extending into the Himalaya Sphere. The chapters in the book enable the reader to view the dynamics of China and India from the geo-civilizational paradigm of the Himalaya Sphere. Among the other new concepts introduced is a new understanding of the Buddhist tryst with China's developing process as a super-state and the interaction of the dynamics of 'wandering ascetics' from India and 'householder' in China. It conveys the message of two 'civilization-states' as akin to oases in the desert of modern 'nation-states' and advocates the Indian spiritual goal of 'Vasudhaiva kutumbakam' (the whole world is one single family) and the Chinese spiritual goal of 'tianxia datong ????' (grand harmony all-under-Heaven).The book is a must-read for all the leaders of China and India and their policy makers. It is a culmination of decades of learning by the author who has lived in both the countries. The reader will begin to understand the shared origins of China and India and how the civilizations have been linked through the ages. The book is timely as it coincides with the commemoration of the diamond jubilee (5th anniversary) of the Panchsheel (Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence) in 214.
