T1 Three bhakti voices : Mirabai, Surdas, and Kabir in their time and ours A1 Hawley, John Stratton,, PB Oxford University Press PP New Delhi YR 2005 SN 019567085X 9780195670851 AB "The landscape of North Indian religion was dramatically transformed in the 15th and 16th centuries by a remarkable family of poet-saints. Among the most famous and beloved of these figures - in India and throughout the world - are Mirabai, Surdas, and Kabir. In this book, John Stratton Hawley takes a probing look at all three, finding that many of the beliefs and legends surrounding them - even central motifs - emerged long after their deaths." "Three Bhakti Voices brings together more than two decades of scholarly work. A number of chapters are new, while others situate previously published essays in a context designed to draw out the connections between Mira, Sur and Kabir." "This book will appeal to anyone interested in Bhakti or in the history of how major North Indian cultural motifs and institutions evolve. It is also relevant to the comparative study of saints and exemplars. Students of Hinduism, Indian and Asian religions, and Indian history will find this volume engaging."--Jacket.
