Ritual Art Of India
Ritual Art Of India
Description
The splendour and diversity of India's ritual arts are incomparable. As Ajit Mookerjee explains, they are also a 'way' - a door to a new dimension of existence. The great gods and goddesses of India, Siva and Krishna, Durga and Lakshmi, and countless local deities, all have their own icons and symbols, their ceremonies and rites. From village wall-paintings and wayside shrines to complex classical icons, Ajit Mookerjee shows that the ritual art of India has deep historical roots, but is also a living tradition, representing an awareness of the 'oneness' of the universe.

Ajit Mookerjee is the distinguished author of numerous books on Indian art and religion.

Testimonials
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 !
