Description
About the Book

This volume explores the delicate subject of gender and religion with honesty and clarity-focusing on one of mankind's earliest and most textually-rich religious traditions, Vaishnavism. Steven J. Rosen has brought together eight essays by leading academics, poets and practitioners, who shed light on the lives and teachings of specific female saints throughout history. This book also examines general principles regarding the worship of Krishna and how such principles impact on the lives of both men and women today.

Extract from review

The editor of the book, Steven J. Rosen has brought together eight essays by leading academics who shed light on the lives and teachings of specific female saints throughout history, such as Meerabai and Andal.

About the Author

Steven Rosen (Satyaraj Das) is a freelance writer and author living in the New York area. Among his more popular books are Food for the Spirit: Vegetarianism and the World Religious; India's Spiritual Renaissance: The Life and Times of Lord Chaitanya; The Six Goswamis of Vrindavan; Om Shalom; Judaism and Krishna Consciousness; and The Lives of the Vaishnava Saints: Shrinivas, Narottam, and Shyamananda.

Mr. Rosen frequently contributes to academic journals and other magazines such as Vegetarian Times, The Animals' Agenda, Dance Pages, and Back to Godhead, the magazine of the Hare Krishna movement.

From the back of the Book

"Vaisnavism: Contemporary Scholars Discuss the Gaudiya Tradition" focuses on an ancient religious heritage in the light of modern scholar-ship. Through a series of lively conversations, Steve J. Rosen and twenty-five distinguished academics explore the many sides of Gaudiya Vaisnavism - its literature, historical development, theology and practice. Thoughtful and indeed illuminating perspectives emerge as these scholars reveal insight based on current research in their fields. In discussing subjects such as the nature of the Absolute, bhakti poetry, mysticism, and mantra meditation, the profundity and beauty of this venerable East Indian tradition are revealed for all.

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 !
