Religious Doctrines in the Mahabharata
Religious Doctrines in the Mahabharata
Description
From the Jacket:

This study further offers an analysis of the epic's teachings by seeking to identify its principal doctrinal tendencies and the specific answers it gives to major questions of religious thinking such as the nature of God, the path to salvation, cosmic and personal eschatology, ethics and the authority of scripture. Through this approach the text is allowed to speak in its own terms and justice is done to the genuine diversity of perspectives contained in its various sections.

Contents:

Introduction.

1. Background to and major themes of epic thought.
2. The Mahabharata's teachings on the status of scripture.
3. Religious organisation in the Mahabharata.
4. Epic soteriology.
5. Epic theism: the nature of God.
6. Epic eschatology.
7. The Mahabharata's teachings on ethics.
8. The Mahabharata's understanding of humanity.
9. The control of destiny over human existence.
10. Creation: the epic's teachings on the origins of this world.
11. The Mahabharata's teachings on gender.
12. Conclusion: the significance of the Mahabharata's teachings.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.
Mike, USA
I was very happy to find these great Hindu texts of the ancient times. Been a fan of both Mahabhratham and Ramayanam since I was a small boy. Now the whole family can enjoy these very important cultural texts at home.
