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.

The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
