Medieval Mysticism of India (An Old Book)
Medieval Mysticism of India (An Old Book)
Description

From the Jacket

"The chief characteristic of the typical Indian Mystics of Medieval India was that they did not submit to the control of any sectarian, organization or scriptures", says the author. This freedom in the matter of spiritual culture was non-existent in medieval Europe gave Indian mystic experiences a richness and variety which is not available elsewhere. The author has constructed a true history of the religions and spiritual efforts of Medieval India based on the materials enshrined in the sayings and doctrines of the Sadhus of the period and historical anecdotes about them. 

About the Author

Kshitimohan Sen was an eminent scholar and a saint who contributed a lot in the development and growth of Visvabharati, Shantiniketan. Rabindranath Tagore and C.F. Andrews both regarded him as their esteemed colleague and friend. He dedicated his entire life in collection of materials pertaining to the lives of innumerable Sadhus and Sadhana.

Fotis, Greece
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
