 DESCRIPTION
spacer
The collection brings together the German indologist Gunther Sontheimer's articles spanning two decades. The articles show how his thoughts on Khandoba developed, the great breadth of his understanding of the cult and the traditions of castes and tribes for whom Khandoba is an important god. He makes use of a wide variety of source materials like oral epics, songs, statements and local literature. Sontheimer understood the Khandoba cult to be a 'mirror of Hinduism'. His writings on Khandoba provide an extra-ordinarily rich glimpse into that mirror.
