Although the role of the visual is essential to Indian tradition and culture, most attempts to understand its images are laden with misperceptions. Darsan, a Sanskrit word that means "seeing," is an aid to our vision, a book of ideas to help us read, think, and look at Hindu images with tolerance and imagination.
Simply one of the best short introductions to Hinduism available. . . . Belongs in every religionist´s and South Asianist´s library. . . . Enthusiastically recommended as required for undergraduate courses on the Hindu tradition.
