This is the best book I have ever read in my life. It deserves more than 5 stars. It takes you through a journey of one man, with the most wandering mind I have ever noticed as he experiments with his life, with available options around him and then trying and analyzing all. The story is set in 8th century IndiaWhen the Buddhist are at a peak on debating against Vedik tradition and converting Hindus; Time when Shankaracharya participated in debates to spread his Advaitha philosophy and as all th [...]

What a book, one of the best I have read. This is my first S L Bhyrappa book and Iam a fan. I want to read all his books which has been translated to english. A great debate on vedas, religion, self righteousness and self realization in the backdrop of a fantastic plot. Simply mesmerising and Iam sure it would be even more enriching to read this book in kannada.

Best one. I never knew it had real incidents of past. It is set in the time at Shankara's presence. It gives detail account of lifestyle at that time. The plot having a traveler who moves along Sartha or Caravan has served purpose. Very good read.

This was my first experience of Byrappa's writing(obviously in translation) and I must say I am impressed. The theme of the book- that of aimless travel towards self discovery has been seen in books which has preceded it. SHrikanta by Sarat CHandra or Sidhartha by Hesse were modelled on this concept. However the greatness of this book lies in the fact that in spite of taking a theme which is not new the authour manages to add substantially to the theme and build a fiercely independent story ut o [...]

"Saartha" by Dr. S.L. Bhyrappa which literally means a trading caravan traces the journey of a Vedic scholar Nagabhatta in the eighth century. It's a physical as well as a metaphysical journey that takes him through various streams of philosophy and ways of life that were intermingling, negotiating and fighting for survival in 8th century India. "Saartha" is an engaging narrative of intense conflicts at one level between religions, sub-sects, political and economic powers, and at another within [...]

Read the English version, 'The Caravan'.I love historical fictions written in first person and this is just that kind.A lot of research would have gone behind this book, which is clearly reflected. In a story form, one understands different Indian philosophical paths. Especially inclusion of famous Shankracharya-Mandan Mishra debate in the book was the best part according to me. Also a complete other side picture of buddhism is painted in this book.Must read.

The second best book I read after Parva by same author. Usually SLB's works are near to the truth which is why he is broadly accepted by huge fans. Saartha also continues to be in same path except Shankara yati's soul getting into King Amaruka's body to find out the real experience while debating with Kumarila bhatta's sister. Leaving this one incidence everything else you can visualize it as truth. Overall this book is an exceptional work by SLB after Parva.

An amazing journey through the eyes of a traveler in pre-modern India.Some of the points to think about:- Conversion of Vedic Brahmins like Nāgārjuna, Nāgasena, Dharmakīrti etc. to Buddhism either due to presence of caste system, animal sacrifices or lack of śraddhā in Veda in spite of being paṇḍits.- Difference in the style of architecture between Hindu temples and Bauddha chaityas: In Hindu temples, the structure from outer prākāra to inner garbhagṛha becomes smaller and smaller [...]

This may be the first time I struggled hard to find meanings of so many Kannada words and wished I had Kannada to Kannada dictionary :-) Novel deals around a Vedic Brahmin who joins a trade Caravan ( "Saartha") on the insistence of his king, n tries to find out the trade secrets of these caravans! But slowly he starts exploring many facets of 'Buddhism' which was getting spread across the nation in those days! The story deals with numerous debates between ' Hindu Vedic Tradition', 'Buddhism' and [...]

The author has brilliantly used the backdrop of eighth century when Buddhism is thriving, debates between Vaidik and Buddhist traditions are at their peak, and Indian subcontinent is encountering Islam for the first time. The philosophical intricacies of Bhuddism (discussions of Nagabhatta and Sathapati (sculptor)), Sanyas marg and Karma kand (Shankar & Mandan Mishra, Shankar & Kumaril Bhatt), and Grihasth ashram (Bharati Devi) have been beautifully weaved into the story by the author.

The trade and the difficulties and challenges the traders were facing; How volatile was the situation of people during Kings!Chapters 5 & 6 are very disturbing due to the explanations of what Tantriks do?Later chapters give a view on the Buddhism at that time and life in Nalanda university.It also gives the extrance to SLBs next historical book 'Avarana' by explaining the beginning of Muslim invasions on India & its early effect on trade.It finally ends with a logical end with a hint of [...]

This book is an abstract journey of Nagabhatta through political, historical, economical conditions during 8th Century. During whole journey it helps Nagabhatta to understand himself deeper. It takes you through various proceedings in forests, many cities, Vamachara, Yoga. Nalanda university is described vibrantly which gives amazing experience. Chandrika's character was inspiring to me and opens the book to theatre, music, yoga. Overall it's inner sartha or journey within self when Nagabhatta w [...]

An awesome description of India in the early ADs. Book shows lot of research by the author wrt different customs and religions thriving in India at that point of time. The comparisons and differentiations commented were too much for me to comprehend but still enjoyed the flow of narration.Makes the reader ponder on the relgious and spiritual aspects of Hinduism and gives some insight to Buddhism in socio-politico scenery. Just loved it.

This story is based in the 8th Century CE in India. A fictious story is woven around facts such asphilosophical - advaita; religious - clash of buddhism & vedic traditions, entrance of islam; historical - nalanda university; lifestyles of trader caravans, artists.A brilliantly book, originally written in Kannada & translated into English.

its a very good book where author narrates the story how buddism affected the unity of India during pre-Moghul invasion. How a religion turned a strong country as a weak country and allowed the foreigners to rule it.

The journey of a man to find anything starts with finding his own self.This is the story of a man in 8th century India who sets out to find the secrets of the caravan. The initial part in the first 130 pages is very gripping and stays true to its title. Afterwards the story dips & never actually recovers as it goes on aimlessly. It is still a good read as it depicts the India as never seen before. The meticulous research done by the author about authentic cultures, their customs and beliefs [...]

Yet another amazing work by the master story teller Bhyrappa on India during 8th century. The bood provides excellent view of political, economical, artistic and spiritual life that existed at that time. Treat for history junkies like myself. I have been informed that it has been translated to English. I had the pleasure of reading the original work in Kannada.
