About this Item

Contents: Preface. Introduction. 1. Madhva and his critics. 2. Theological foundation of Avatara-claim. 3. Madhva as a Visnu empowered author of all canonical texts. 4. Redactional criteria for the authorship of Madhva. 5. Summary and final remarks. Bibliography and abbreviations. Indices: 1. Index of names. 2. Index locorum. 3. Subject index. "The present monograph constitutes the first attempt to solve the riddle of Madhva's sources in a systematic and methodic manner. After presenting the previous scholarship on this matter Mesquita investigates the theological background which may have allowed Madhva to fabricate in all honesty Sruti and Smriti sources. Mesquita shows that the dilemma of either believing that Madhva had access to otherwise unknown texts or considering Madhva to be a liar is a false one. Rather Madhva's belief that he was the third avatara of Vayu (after Hanuman und Bhima) and his doctrine of avatara as being absolutely identical to the deity it incarnates blur and sublate the distinction between the "author" of the (in the case of Sruti, eternal) text and its "reader" (Wiener Zeitschrift fur die Kunde Sudasiens, Vienna 2000)."
