A.H.Shalunkhe/ Dhananjay Chavan


"Prof A. H. Salunkhe is a renowned Sanskrit scholar and philosopher in Maharashtra. He is the author of several path breaking texts on wide ranging topics in ancient Indian traditions— women in Hinduism, culture of Manu Smriti, women in Mahabharat, Lokayata (Charvaka), enslavement of the majority by vedic scriptures, a critique of Indian historical characters—asuras and vedic gods, Tukaram’s true message, Huen-Tsang, and several others that have given expression to the glorious traditions and heroes of India that were hugely influential and yet remain unknown in our times. Dr Dhananjay Chavan practises psychiatry in Pune. He worked for several years on the project to digitize Pali Tipitaka and made presentations on this topic in international conferences. He counts Dr Ambedkar and Evolutionary Biology along with Acharya Goenka and Psychiatry as major influences on his quest to understand and follow the Buddha. He has edited Dharmanand Kosambi’s Samadhimarg which is a treatise on meditation practices of the Buddha. He hopes to translate this into English in near future. He is currently working on two books— one on simple principles for health and happiness for the elderly and the other for family members of people with dementia. "
