National Mission for Manuscripts was established in February 2003 by the Ministry of Culture, Government of India with the purpose of locating, documenting, preserving and disseminating the knowledge content of Indias handwritten manuscripts, said to be the largest collection of handwritten knowledge documents in the world. While looking ahead to reconnect with the knowledge of the past, the Mission is in the process of trying to re-contextualize the knowledge contained in manuscripts for the present and the future generations. At present the mission is an integral part of Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts. The Mission launched a lecture series titled 'Tattvabodha' in January 2005. Since then, a monthly lecture series is organized in Delhi and other centres in the country. Tattvabodha has established itself as a forum for intellectual discourse, debate and discussion. Eminent scholars representing different aspects of India's knowledgte systems have addressed and interacted with highly receptive audiences over the course of the past few years. The present volume comprises ten lectures delivered under Tattvabodha lectures series. A glance at the list of contributors will reveal that the Mission has had the privilege of hosting the finest exponents of Indian culture and the compilation of their lectures makes for invaluable literature. The contributors are listed in alphabetic order: Avanindra Kumar, B.V. Subbarayappa, Brajakishore Swain, H.V. Nagarajarao, Kiran Kumar Thaplyal, O.C. Handa, Radha Madhav Bharadwaj, Rama Kanta Chakravarty, S. Revathy, and Shireen Moosvi.
