Description
About the Book

The central theme of the hook revolves around Kali, time and metaphysics. This theme is pursued in two ways. The first is with four short pieces which focus on aesthetic issue at the centre of which is Kali. The second consists of four proviously, published ethnographically based papers but which have been subjected to extensive revision so as to fit into the central theme.

Kondos’s key contention in dealing with various issues concerning Kali is that western theory, models and ways of thinking are inadequate or an understanding of this complex figure and her attributes. Rather, Kondos argues that for a fuller and more appropriate ways of understanding and appreciating this intriguing deity is through. Hindu theory, Hindu metaphysics and the Hindu processual approach to the world.

 

The Author

Vivienne kondos is currently an Honorary Research Associate at the University of Sydney. She obtained her doctorate at this university where she taught in the Department of Anthropology. Dr. Kondos has written numerous papers on Nepalese politics, culture and society based on extensive and on-going field work with Parbatya and Newar peoples in Kathmandu. She has edited a significant collection on The Politics of Ritual. Her book On the Ethos of Hindu Women: Issues, Taboos and forms of Expression was published in 2004 by Mandala Book Point.

 

Acknowledgments

Many people have contributed to this book. There are many nameless people whose efforts underpin what we would call customs, practices or ethnographic data but without them there's no anthropological enterprise.

I am also grateful to many scholars especially Jagganath Tripathi, Prayag Raj Sharma, Michael Allen, Indra Ban and Jim Masselos.

Then, as well, there are the friends who have contributed because, whatever else, they mean you well; even when they suspect or know that you are engaged in some kind of interpretive indulgence. In this instance I want to thank the members of SWAG (Sydney Writing Anthropology Group).

I appreciate Alex's editorial input, Punam Bista's skill in handling all kinds of typing difficulties and Prashant Shrestha's assistance in correcting the typed script.

Finally, it must be acknowledged that without Antigone Kefala's patience and encouragement this book might have remained a text in waiting. Her assistance in proofreading is also much appreciated.

Testimonials

Thiru, UK
Thank You very much for this wonderful opportunity for helping people to acquire the spiritual treasures of Hinduism at such an affordable price.
Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
