Hindu Traditions of Devotion

Anne E. Monius


An examination of Hindu bhakti (devotional) traditions, focusing on three specific geographic/cultural regions within the Indian subcontinent. Keeping in mind both continuities and differences in the bhakti traditions of these three distinct cultural areas, this course will explore a variety of devotional literatures in English translation and consider the enduring significance and use of that deeply emotional poetry in the lives of Hindus today.
