Overview

Drawing from topics of religion in India such as bhakti, puja rituals, and spirit posessions, these essays offer a close study of the physical representations of god as the central feature of Hinduism. A valuable tool for students of anthroplogy and the philosophy and history of religion.

Helpful reviews of how Western scholarship has traditionally been troubled by religious images. The provocative suggestion is that the basic distinction in Indian religion is not the conventional one between personal and impersonal conceptions of deity, but between impersonal and embodied conceptions. Highly recommended. (Choice)
