The Continuity of Tradition

Title:The Continuity of Tradition
Author:Anand, Mulk Raj
Enumeration:Vol. 9 Issue no. 1; December 1955, p. 7-8
Abstract:The continuity of tradition between earlier (vedic) times and the Buddhist period is indicated by the recurrence of certain symbols, such as the Tree of Life, the Earth Lotus, the World Wheel, the Lotus Throne, and the Fiery Pillar. Another example of such continuity is the Pre-Mauryan repousse figure of the earth goddess "Prithvi" found in the mound at Laurya-Nandangarh, which has its antecedents in the terracotta figures of the Indus period, and continued into the Kushana and later periods. Continuity of traditional forms may well have extended to monuments of plastic art in the Mauryan, Sunga, Satavahana, and later epochs, as evidenced by art remains.
