ABSENT LORD:  ASCETICS AND KINGS IN A JAIN RITUAL CULTURE., Babb, Lawrence A.

Author Name    Babb, Lawrence A.

Title   ABSENT LORD: ASCETICS AND KINGS IN A JAIN RITUAL CULTURE.

Publisher    University of California Press, Berkeley, 1996.

Seller ID   21101

244 pp, 8vo (9" H), soft cover. ISBN 0520203240 "What does it mean to worship beings that one believes are completely indifferent to, and entirely beyond the reach of, any form of worship whatsoever? What are the implications of such a relationsh ip with sacred beings for the religious life of a community? Using these questions as his point of departure, Babb explores the ritual culture of image-worshiping Svetambar Jains. Jainism is, aside from Buddhism, the only surviving exampl e o f I n d i a's ancient non-Vedic religious traditions. It is known and celebrated for its systematic practice of non-violence and for the rigor of the asceticism it promotes. 'Absent Lords' sheds light on a little-known religious tradition an d d em on s tr at es t hat divine 'absence' can be as rich as divine 'presence' in its possibilities for informing a religious response to the cosmos." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - light waviness to book a t top an d bot tom , t iny dint on front cover. Very Good+
