Description

About the Book

This book endeavours to signify a way by which the development of religion may be studied within the parameters of a defined geographical and chronological context. Encountering Sivaism has taken cognizance of the evolution Siva's pantheon through the fluid process of cultural coalescence. The agencies of Acculturation include the visual and the literary material. Art is looked at as an index to socio-religious change at macro and micro levels without restricting the study to specific doctrinal-theological developments, the focus has been on the rationale of religious developments in terms of the material milieu.

About the Author

Nilima Chitgopekar teaches history at the Jesus and Mary College, Delhi University. She is presently working on the Yoginis as female divinities an ancient Indian religion.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.
