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.

Fotis, Greece
I've just received the shawl and love it already!! Thank you so much,
Ina, Germany
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.
