about

The Pushtimarg, a Hindu sect established in India in the fifteenth century, possesses a unique culture—reaching back centuries and still vital today—in which art and devotion are deeply intertwined. This important volume, illustrated with more than one hundred vivid images, offers a new, in-depth look at the Pushtimarg and its rich aesthetic traditions, which are largely unknown outside of South Asia.
