Darsan: Seeing the Divine Image in India

by

Darsan: Seeing the Divine Image in India Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

Although the role of the visual is essential to Indian tradition and culture, most attempts to understand its images are laden with misperceptions. Darsan, a Sanskrit word that means "seeing," is an aid to our vision, a book of ideas to help us read, think, and look at Hindu images with tolerance and imagination.

Review:

"Simply one of the best short introductions to Hinduism available.... Belongs in every religionist's and South Asianist's library.... Enthusiastically recommended as required for undergraduate courses on the Hindu tradition." Religious Studies Review

About the Author

Diana L. Eck, professor of comparative religion and Indian studies, and director of The Pluralism Project at Harvard University, is the editor of On Common Ground: World Religions in America, a multimedia CD-ROM.
