The Advaitic Theism of the Bhagavata Purana

The author of this book takes a detailed look at the core beliefs that are outlined in the Bhagavata Purana during the course of its eight chapters. Through in-depth analysis, he demonstrates how the Bhagavata Purana, as a unified scripture, combines Vedantic non-dualism and Vaisnava devotionalism; and how the Bhagavata non-dualism accommodates the reality of the universe and of the individual selves that are found within it within the reality of Brahman. This marvellous combination of the devotionals and non-dualism in the Bhagavata Purana is said to find its expression in the worship of Krsna as a transcendent and ultimate god by all Vaisnavas. This is according to the author. The discussion and delineation found throughout the chapters highlight "each of the major forces" that are responsible for determining "the religious structure of the Bhagavata," which "has a significance and meaning for the study of religion beyond that of situating a scriptural text within a religious history." Students of Indian religion and philosophy will find the current academic work to be very interesting and valuable. The general reader who is interested in Indian history and culture will also find a place for it in their collection of literature..

Review(s)

The Advaitic Theism of the Bhagavata Purana can be be considered as the most significant study of the Purana in its deeper principles…None of the other studies have such interpretative insight into this scripture or into its place in the larger context
