Book Description Sundeep Prakashan, New Delhi, 1997. Hardcover. Condition: New. 2nd edition. The 35 brief essays in this book provide glimpses of the variety that is most characteristic of Hinduism in urban south India today. By examining selected objects widely revered in contemporary Dravidian country gods, goddesses, historical figures, sacred plants and stonesā "the authors succeed at once in disclosing to attentive readers what in the South mirrors Hindu norms throughout India and what remains ineluctably local. Beyond that, distinctive details of worship provided here document subtly different nuances in beliefs and practices upheld even among the Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada speakers within the region. The authors bring to this project the two quite different perspectives of "insider" and "outsider. As scholars, moreover, they bring to bear the testimony of history and literature, sociology and the arts. As long-time teachers they provide information and insights important for students to keep in mind while they become more familiar with Hindu traditions. Their expert integration into each essay of K.S. Ramu`s line-drawings serves as an invitation to readers to follow them imaginatively into a vibrant and widely-shared symbol system in which it becomes possible to "see" those Hindu imagesā "just as, perhaps, their votaries do as exquisitely meaningful representations of the divine. The volume is instructively arranged with essays pertaining to conventional sectors of Hindu faith grouped together. Many readers may wish to read from beginning to end following the order of presentation. Yet most essays also stand as discrete entities. Printed Pages: 324. Seller Inventory # 1817BV
