Description

 

From the Jacket:

 

Saint Jnanesvara, the celebrated poet-saint of Maharashtra who lived in the thirteenth century A. D., besides being the author of Jnanesvari and Amrtanubhava, the great literary-cum-philosophical works in Marathi, has also written a number of devotional lyrics (abhangas).These stray abhangas numbering over a thousand are the spontaneous outpourings of his heart and deal with a variety of spiritual matters such as, the relation of soul to God, description of the enchanting Saguna form of God - Vitthala, the glory of His name, greatness of spiritual preceptors, advice to seekers of self-knowledge, criticism of religious superstitions and hypocrisy. Jnanesvara was the first saint to have taught the supremacy of the path of devotion to the people for their salvation, eschewing other means, and is, therefor, regarded as the founder of 'Bhakti-Marga' or 'Bhagavata Dharma' in Maharashtra.

Out of the numerous abhangas of Sri Jnanadeva, one hundred and ten have been selected for inclusion in this book which are representative of his entire abhangas and contains the essence of 'Bhagavata Dharma' of which he was a pioneer.

P. V. Borde (b. 1916) is a veritable scholar steeped in literature and philosophy. His first book At Thy Feet was published in 1965 which received high approbation from scholars. Its second edition was published in 1990. His latest book is the English translation of the immortal classical poem Kekavali - of the renowned Marathi poet, Moropant of the Eighteenth Century.

Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
