Book Description Manohar Publishers & Distributors, 2009. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. This book is a commemorative volume to N.N. Bhattacharya, an internationally recognized master interpreter and an encyclopedic expert in the field of ancient Indian history. Part one of this volume is devoted to research that examines familiar texts or familiar figures, not only to further scholarly inquiry but also to tap hitherto unutilized resources. A second set of essays, grouped together in Part II under the heading `Rethinking Blood, Cadavers, and Death`, presents new perspectives-historical field-oriented, and textual on sacrifice. From texts and contexts, Part III turns to art history. Final essays in Part IV share a common interest in power: the transformations possible through Sakti, and through the Goddess as Sakti, in the experiences of Hindu men and women. Each of the essayists in this volume urges those engaged in the study of Saktism to push out in new directions. Printed Pages: 420. Bookseller Inventory # 47195

Book Description Manohar Publishers and Distributors. Hardback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Breaking Boundaries with the Goddess: New Directions in the Study of Saktism, Cynthia Ann Humes, Rachel Fell McDermott, This book draws together twelve Sakta interpreters from North America, Europe, and India to discuss the present state and future challenges of Studies of the South Asian Goddess. They focus on Sanskrit, Tamil, Bengali, and tribal languages, and they cover geographic areas from the north to the south of the subcontinent and beyond, including Tibet, and even parts of Central Asia that were once under Kusana rule. Their sources are wide-ranging: they investigate archaeological finds from the Indus Valley, sculptures recovered in robbers hordes in eastern India, and sites excavated by the Russians near Afghanistan. They read texts, including Vedas, Agamas, epics, Puranas, Tantras, medieval ritual digests, and glorifications; examine rituals, art, and social attitudes; and their fieldwork takes them to meet tribal Khonds, Gonds, Oraons, and Nagas, Bengali Tantric practitioners, and temple priests and devotees. Numerous goddesses find their way into the pages of this volume: the Vedic Viraj, Laksmi, Sita, Durga Mahisamardini, Kali, Korravi, tribal goddesses such as Tari Penu and Anna Kuari, the ten Mahavidyas, Jagaddhatri, various yaksinis, Vindhyavasini, and even goddesses whose names cannot be deciphered with our present knowledge. All of the contributors write in honor of the late Professor Narendra Nath Bhattacharyya (1934-2001), the Bengali master interpreter of Saktism, who mentored many of them and influenced the field tremendously, with his insistence that the study of ritual or text not to be divorced from a consideration of social institutions, particularly those derived from tribal culture, and his belief that the importance of women as ritual actors and purveyors of tradition not to be forgotten.
