Seeing Krishna: The Religious World of a Brahman Family in Vrindaban

by

Seeing Krishna: The Religious World of a Brahman Family in Vrindaban Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book offers a close-up view of the religious world of one of the most influential families in Vrinbadan, India's premier place of pilgrimage for worshipers of Krishna. This priestly family has arguably been the most creative force in this important town. Their influence also radiates well beyond India's borders both because of their tireless work in fostering scholarship and performance about Krishna and because the scion of the family, Shrivatsa Goswami, has become an international spokesman for Hindu ways and concerns. Case, who has been an occasional resident in the family ashram, gives the reader a real sense of the atmosphere of daily life there, and the complete devotion of the residents to the service and worship of Krishna.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 155-161) and index.

About the Author

Margaret H. Case has a Ph.D. in Indian history from the University of Chicago, and was for many years Asian Studies editor at Princeton University Press.
