The volume brings together Sontheimer's English-language articles on Kha??oba, the Maharashtrian deity and the equivalent gods Malla??a in Andhra Pradesh and Mailara in Karnataka. The articles take into account the differing traditions of the wide variety of castes and tribes for whose members Khal).qoba (or Malla??a or Mailara) is an important God, and make use of the various kinds of source materials that Sontheimer gathered -oral epics of the Dhangar shepherds; narratives, comments and statements made by people belonging to various groups; the songs (padem) of the Vaghyas and Mura?is, Kha??oba’s "bards" and "courtesans"; the Sanskrit and Mara?hi Mahatmyas composed by brahma?as; descriptions and remarks searched out in the literature of Mahanubhavas, the Varkaris, and other medieval saints; and stray reference culled from published and unpublished historical documents.Printed Pages: 353.
