9780143065456: The Giver of the Worn Garland: Krishnadevaraya s Amuktamalyada

And below her hair, she would put on a garland and spend a few minutes just gazing into a pond, seeing her reflection and satisfying her desire before turning away and returning the worn garland to her flower basket The emperor Krishnadevaraya s epic poem Amuktamalyada (Giver of the Worn Garland) depicts the life of the medieval Vaisnava poet-saint Andal, or Goda Devi as she is also known, and her passionate devotion to Lord Visnu. Krishnadevaraya s unique poetic imagination brings to life a celestial world filled with wonder, creativity, humour and vibrant natural beauty. The mundane is made divine and the ordinary becomes extraordinary; the routine activities of daily life become expressive metaphors for heavenly actions, while the exalted gods of heaven are re-imagined as living persons. The poet s ability to see divinity in the most commonplace activities is an extension of his powerful belief that god is everywhere, in everything, at all times.

Book Description Penguin Books India, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. First edition. Written in the Sixteenth century b the iconic king Sri Krishnadevaraya ?Amuktmalyada? is one of the finest maha-kavyams, or ornate long poems, of classical Telugu literature. Marked with a great degree of realism and exacting detail about daily life in medieval South India, the mundane is made divine and her ordinary becomes extraordinary in the poet?s imagination. This is an extension of his innermost philosophy, the powerful Visistha Adavaita belief that god is everywhere, in everything, at all times. Amultamalyada can thus also be read as a bhakti-kavya, a genre that imbues the stylized characteristics of Sanskrit ornate poetry with the religious fervour of South Indian bhakti. Printed Pages: 1.
