Dr.ANANDA K.COOMARASWAMY

Introduction

Ananda K. Coomaraswamy who was born in Ceylon (Sri Lanka) and grew up in England, taught the West the way to approach and understand the arts of India. His whole life was dedicated to the study and exposition of Indian culture and arts. He said to friends who wanted to write his biography "Assess my works".

Ananda K. Coomaraswamy

Ananda Kentish Coomaraswamy.

It is an intriguing name, the unfamiliar 'Kentish' nestling between the familiar 'Ananda' and 'Coomaraswamy'. It makes you wonder about the man's nationality. Was he a swami? A sanyasi?

Doctor Ananda Coomaraswamy was an unusual man, an extraordinary man. He was a hermit as well as a householder, or perhaps he was neither. As we say in Kannada 'Food did not break his fast'.
