Gitagovindam Sacred Profanities: A Study of Jayadeva’s Gitagovinda

N.S.R. Ayengar (Author)

The book GITAGOVINDAM: Sacred Profanities: A Study Jayadeva’s it Gitagovinda purports to study issues relating to Jayadeva and Gz`tag0vz'ndam in a historical perspective. Translating yet again the author tries to put Jayadeva’s Gitagovindam in a refreshingly new perspective. In order to prepare the readers to read and enjoy the classic work (Gitagovindam) in translation, the book tries to highlight all related aspects — cultural and historical — in its introductory chapters. The book also tries to suggest that Gitagovindam is one of the finest dramatic lyrics in Sanskrit which deals with the sacred profanities by deftly fusing eroticism with profound religious experience, and how through imagery, tone, colour and rhythm it mingles levels of physical and metaphysical association where the divine and the mundane are fused into one condensed religious ecstacy.
