Visit of Dr. Marcus Schmücker, member of the Institute for Cultural and Intellectual History of Asia of the Austrian Academy of Science (member of the ECAF)
18 DECEMBER 11
Dr. Marcus Schmücker, member of the Institute for Cultural and Intellectual History of Asia of the Austrian Academy of Science (member of the ECAF), stayed four and a half month (from August to December 2011) as a visiting scholar at the EFEO Centre of Pondicherry. He works in the field of Viśiṣṭṣādvaita Vedānta focused on Ve­dān­tadesika's Sanskrit and Maṇipravāḷa works. He delivered a paper at the conference "The Archeology of Bhakti" (11th-12th August), and then participated in the Classical Tamil Summer Seminar. He continued reading Pēyāḻvār, including the commentary of Periyavācan Piḷḷai, with Dr. Eva Wilden. Having completed a first translation of Pēy­āḻvār and having realized the lack of a phi­lological based translation, both decided on a pro­ject which will give a full annotated trans­lation of all three Antātis. Marcus Schmücker also read parts of the Tat­tva­muktākalāpa of Vedāntadeśika with Paṇḍit Dharanidharan (Associate Professor at the Sanskrit Department, University Pondicherry).
