Religious Doctrines in the Mahabharata
Religious Doctrines in the Mahabharata
Description
About the Book

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.

Testimonials
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 !
