Description

Vaisnavism: Contemporary Scholars discuss the Gaudiya Tradition focuses on an ancient religious heritage in the light of modern scholarship. Through a series of lively conversations, Steven J Rosen and twenty-five distinguished academics explore the many sides of Gaudiya Vaisnavism-Its literature, historical development, theology and practice.

Thoughtful and indeed illuminating perspectives emerge as the scholars reveal insights gained from years of research. In discussing subjects such as the nature of the absolute, devotional poetry, sacred space, mystical states and sonic theology, the abundant beauty and profundity of this venerable East Indian tradition is brought to light.

REVIEW

Steven Rosen has brought together an overview of a highly technical subject as interpreted by acknowledged experts in the field, thus informing further the already informed and, it is to be hoped, stimulating the uninformed to inform themselves of a highly rewarding system of thought and instructive slice of religious history.

-From the Foreword by Edward C Dimock, Jr, University of Chicago
