Description

 

From the Jacket:

 

Saint Jnanesvara, the celebrated poet-saint of Maharashtra who lived in the thirteenth century A. D., besides being the author of Jnanesvari and Amrtanubhava, the great literary-cum-philosophical works in Marathi, has also written a number of devotional lyrics (abhangas).These stray abhangas numbering over a thousand are the spontaneous outpourings of his heart and deal with a variety of spiritual matters such as, the relation of soul to God, description of the enchanting Saguna form of God - Vitthala, the glory of His name, greatness of spiritual preceptors, advice to seekers of self-knowledge, criticism of religious superstitions and hypocrisy. Jnanesvara was the first saint to have taught the supremacy of the path of devotion to the people for their salvation, eschewing other means, and is, therefor, regarded as the founder of 'Bhakti-Marga' or 'Bhagavata Dharma' in Maharashtra.

Out of the numerous abhangas of Sri Jnanadeva, one hundred and ten have been selected for inclusion in this book which are representative of his entire abhangas and contains the essence of 'Bhagavata Dharma' of which he was a pioneer.

Testimonials

Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.

Thank you kindly for the Cobra Ganesha from Mahabalipuram. The sculpture is exquisite quality and the service is excellent. I would not hesitate to order again or refer people to your business. Thanks again.
