From Material to Deity: Indian Rituals of Consecration
Material to Deity: Indian Rituals of Consecration
Takashima and Shingo Einoo (eds)
rituals the Pratistha is one of the most well-known and most important ritual
ceremonies. An intensive study of the installation ceremony of an image of a
god enables one to clarify the formation and development of post-Vedic rituals
both in Tantric and non-Tantric schools on the one hand, and to make a good
analysis of the ritual elements of post-Vedic rituals on the other. This volume
will contribute to a deeper understanding of post-Vedic rituals and of the
discontinuity between the Vedic and post-Vedic rituals.
Shingo Einoo is Professor of Indology at the
University of Tokyo. He has published a number of important studies in both
Vedic and post-Vedic rituals.
Takashima is Professor at the Research Institute for Languages and Cultures
of Asia and Africa of Tokyo University of Foreign Studies.
