Shakti: Power in the Conceptual Structure of Karimpur Religion
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1985; 8121500702 / 9788121500708; First Indian Edition; Cloth; New; New; 
Shakti: Power in the Conceptual Structure of Karimpur Religion adds to the growing literature about the village Karimpur, first made famous by William and Charlotte Wiser (The Hindu Jajmani System and Behind Mud Walls). In this book, village beliefs about the nature of ritual and the organization of the pantheon, as expressed in myth and song, are explored using structural and linguistics analysis. It is shown that the concept of power, Shakti, is critical to understanding the nature of the Hindu pantheon and that the gods, and thus the rituals directed to them, are ordered by their perceived powers. Hindu deities and humans are bound together in a mutual giving of boons and service, and humans are as necessary to the gods to humans. Finally, this mutual bonding is shown to carry over to human-human relationships, particularly those of the Jajmani system. Printed Pages: 232 with 15 b/w illustrations and 16 tables. 001453
