LORD JAGANNATH (HIS TEMPLE, CULT AND FESTIVALS)
LORD JAGANNATH (HIS TEMPLE, CULT AND FESTIVALS)
Description
About the Book:

The present work is a learned discourse, exact and generic, on the relevance of the Cult of Jagannath to contemporaneous culture over a thousand years. As such it purports to be a unique work - the pioneer one on the history and culture of the Cult of Jagannath - twined with a deep sensitivity towards its philosophy and relevance in a broad spectrum of sectarian synthesis. It brings to light the history of the monasteries at Puri, their founders' (from Sankara and Ramanuja to Nanak and Chaitanya), deification of the Cult as continuity, the consequential socialization of ideas and creative arts and the myriad gestures of this tradition (in the traditional context while revealing their powerful contemporary relevance) inclusive of Aryan Dravidian synthesis, the 'Mahaprasad' brotherhood of man and an inarticulate sense of belonging to its past, present and future.

The history of Orissa, and important and indispensable component of the history of India, is generally incomprehensible without a proper study of the Cult of Jagannath and Puri. Indeed, the former is inalienable from the latter. In bringing to light the sectarian synthesis through the monasteries at Puri vis-à-vis the Cult of Jagannath, the history and culture of Puri, the history of the Car-festival and Navakalevara and the history and culture of the Cult under Mughal, Maratha and British rule, this research work is indeed the first of its kind till date.

The work has meticulously sifted the legendary elements to give reliable residuum of facts. As such, the micro-historical study is hoped to go a long way towards a macro-structural study of the history and culture of India as a whole. The work is at times, inter-disciplinary in nature taking into considerations sociological and philosophical aspects as well. As such, as a founding stone of Orissa History and Culture as a whole, the book would be a base for all subsequent historico-cultural researches on the subject.

About the Author:

Dr. Himanshu S. Patnaik was born in 1947 and did his post-graduation in History in 1967 from the Utkal University. He got his D. Litt. from the Utkal University, under the guidance of Dr. M.N.

Hello, Just a short feedback on your new website layout: the old one was better than most of what you come across on the www, but you've managed to make it even better. I very much like the new look of the book pages and 'my gallery' pages. Thanks again for offering me a look inside the books. It's a big help for finding out if it's really what I want. Everything is perfect: the presentation of the items, your way of handling the orders, and the fast and always diligently packed parcels. Thanks to all at Exotic India, Walter

Exotic India is a fine organization to do business with. I have had the best trading experience and the very best customer service. The communication I have had with Vipin K. is of the highest quality; my questions and requests were quickly and professionally answered and fulfilled. A special thanks to the artist Kailash Raj for the beautiful art he produces; I have certainly been enriched by the way his art exemplifies the stories they tell. Many Thanks to all concerned.

My beautiful shawl arrived today. Thank you so much for this lovely shawl. Really, it is nicer than the photograph. I hope you and yours have a very Happy New Year and much prosperity in the New Year. With gratitude
Tom Anderson, Canada
An excellent website, as always. I do not even mention its content, which is beautiful beyond words, but I am merely referring to the great functionality and optimal design of your website. Links always work, the information is accurate and complete, images are very clear, including scanned content of your books. A pleasure to purchase from you.
Oreste, USA
I just wanted to extend my profound thanks to you for expediting my order. It was so well packaged and all import processes taken care of so the beautiful statue arrived in fabulous condition. It looks truly wonderful and I am so happy to have Lord Ganesh take pride of place in my home. Thank you again for your superb service. Best regards
