In recent years mandalas have attracted much interest among a wider
public. The main focus of such interest has been directed towards
Tibetan mandalas, specimens of which have been included in numerous
publications. But mandalas are found across a wide spectrum of South
Asian religious traditions, including those of the Hindus and Jains.
Hindu mandalas and yantras have hardly been researched.
This book attempts to fill this gap by clarifying important
aspects of mandalas and yantras in specific Hindu traditions through
investigations by renowned specialists in the field. Its chapters
explore mandalas and yantras in the Smarta, Pancaratra, Shaiva and Sakta
traditions. An essay on the vastupurushamandala and its relationship to
architecture is also included.
