Maṇḍalas and Yantras in the Hindu traditions

by Gudrun Bühnemann ; with contributions by H. Brunner ... [et al.]

In recent years ma alas have attracted much interest among a wider public. The main focus of such interest has been directed toward Tibetan ma alas, specimens of which have been included in numerous publications. But ma alas are found across a wide spectrum of South Asian religious traditions, including those of the Hindus and Jains. Hindu ma alas and yantras have hardly been researched. This book attempts to fill this gap by clarifying important aspects of ma alas and yantras in specific Hindu traditions through investigations by renowned specialists in the field. Its chapters explore ma alas and yantras in the Sm?rta, P?ncar?tra, ?aiva and kta traditions. An essay on the v?stupuru?ama ala and its relationship to architecture is also included. With 13 colour plates.
