Vaishnavism of Gowd Saraswat Brahmins and a few Konkani Folklore Tales
Vaishnavism of Gowd Saraswat Brahmins and a few Konkani Folklore Tales
Description
Back of the Book

It is believed that a group of Brahmins from the banks of Saraswati river settled in the region of Goa at the behest of Saint Parashuram. In course of time, these Brahmins moved eastwards towards the fertile lands of Videha in northern Bihar, around Mithila. As this place was known as Gowd, the Brahmins came to be known as Gowd Saraswat Brahmins. Initially influenced by Shankaracharya and his Shaivite philosophy, they soon came under the influence of Madhavacharya and Vaishnavism.

This fascinating account describes the life and religious beliefs of the Gowd Saraswat Brahmins, their periodic migrations and the intermittent tussles between the Vaishnavites and Shaivites and also presents some interesting konkani folklore tales.

A well researched book that touches upon an unconventional subject in a simple, reader-friendly way. An unconventional subject in a simple, reader-friendly way. An interesting read for students, researchers and general readers.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
