Book Description

Concerned with the process in Hinduism of reinterpreting classical texts and imbuing them with new inspiration. An example par excellence is Hariram Vyas's Ras-pancadhyayi, the earliest known Braj Bhasa version of the five chapters of Bhagavatapurana on Krsna's Dance with the Gopis.


'This excellent study fills an important gap in the materials needed for continuing progress in the study of north Indian Krsna poetry and religion.' - Stuart McGregor, Bulletin of SOAS
