Summary

This book explores the connections between bhakti and embodiment and is concerned more specifically with constructions of divine bodies and devotional bodies in Krishna bhakti traditions. Grounding general reflections on bhakti and embodiment in an analysis of two case studies: the Bhagavata Pur#xC4;na, one of the most important scriptures in the Vaisnava bhakti canon, and the Gaud#xC4;#xAB;ya Vaisnava tradition, an important bhakti movement inspired by the Bengali leader Caitanya in the sixteenth century that invokes the canonical authority of the Bh#xC4;gavata Pur#xC4;na as the basis for its own distinctive teachings.
