Darsan: Seeing the Divine Image in India

Darsan: Seeing the Divine Image in India Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

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
