In einer sowohl historisch wie empirisch angelegten Studie werden Aufstieg und Bedeutung der im heutigen Indien überaus populären Gestalt des Affengottes Hanuman dargestellt. Erste Zeugnisse der Hanuman-Gestalt finden sich schon im Nationalepos Ramayana (ca. 300 v. Chr.-200 n. Chr.), doch erst in den letzten Jahrhunderten hat seine Verehrung stark zugenommen. Nach der Beschreibung eines dreitägigen Weiherituals für ein Hanuman-Kultbild in Benares wird die geschichtliche Entwicklung der Göttergestalt und ihrer Verehrung von den Anfängen bis heute entfaltet. Eine empirische Untersuchung erhellt schließlich das Gottesbild und die Motivationen heutiger Hanuman-Verehrer. Dem Band sind Abbildungen und im Anhang u.a. eine Liste von ca. 200 Hanumantempeln und -schreinen sowie ausgewählte Interviews beigegeben.

Book Description De Gruyter, Germany, 2002. Hardback. Condition: New. Reprint 2011 ed.. Language: German . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.This historically and empirically based study presents the rise and significance of the divine monkey chief Hanuman, who still enjoys popularity in India today. The first account of the Hanuman figure are to be found in the national epic the Ramayana (aproximatly 300 BC - 200 AD), but the veneration of it has grown considerably over the last few centuries. This account opens with a description of a three-day consecration ritual for a Hanuman cultic figure in Benares and then proceeds to unfold the historical development of the divine figure and its veneration from its beginings up to the present day. A concluding empirical study illuminates the image of the divine figure and the motivations of the contemporary worshippers. The volume contains illustrations and an appendix which includes a list of some 200 Hanuman temples and shrines together with selected interviews. Seller Inventory # APC9783110171877
