View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

This book contains a detailed discussion of some of the historical, doctrinal, ritual and literary aspects of both Vaishnavism and Shaivism, as first presented – then as Visnuism and Sivaism – at the 1969 Jordan Lecture in Comparative Religion. By comparing both religions, the main characteristics of each tradition is delineated and questions regarding their origins, theological doctrines and practices are reconsidered. Special emphasis is laid on their various interrelations, for example, the partly parallel and often divergent development of their rituals and philosophies.

Book Description Athlone P., Great Britain, 1970. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. HC/DJ price in GB pounds unclipped. No writing/markings. Not ex-lib. 228 pages with extensive notes and index sections. "This expanded version of Professor Gondas' Jordan lectures, given at the School of Oriental and African Studies in the University of London in 1969, presents, not a regular account of the history of Visnuism and Sivaism, but rather a detailed discussion of some of those historical, doctrinal, ritual, and literary aspects of both religious currents which do not seem to have attracted the attention they deserve. Being comparative in character it is an attempt to delineate the main characteristics of each tradition and to reconsider some vexed problems relating to their origin and the history of their theological doctrines and practices. Special emphasis is laid upon their various interrelationships, upon those many features which have their roots in the Vedic past." (excerpt). Very good condition book and jacket with some dust jacket wear. Now protected in mylar cover. Seller Inventory # 001055
