In recent years mandalas have attracted much interest among a wider public. The main focus of such interest has been directed towards Tibetan mandalas, specimens of which have been included in numerous publications. But mandalas are found across a wide spectrum of South Asian religious traditions, including those of the Hindus and Jains. Hindu mandalas and yantras have hardly been researched. This book attempts to fill this gap by clarifying important aspects of mandalas and yantras in specific Hindu traditions through investigations by renowned specialists in the field. Its chapters explore mandalas and yantras in the Smarta, Pancaratra, Shaiva and Sakta traditions. An essay on the vastupurushamandala and its relationship to architecture is also included.Printed Pages: 321 with 19 coloured & 100 b/w illustrations.
