Dance of Divine Love:
India's Classic Sacred Love Story: The Rasa Lila of Krishna
Graham M. Schweig

Book Description | Table of Contents
Introduction [in PDF format]

ENDORSEMENTS:

"This is truly first-rate scholarship. The five-chapter dramatic poem of the Rasa Lila is a gem of world literature, and Schweig has polished it masterfully. His translation gives a sense of the poetic aspect of the work as well as its theology."--E. F. Bryant, Rutgers University

"Schweig's translation is accurate, expressive, and poetic. This book will be useful to classes in a variety of disciplines, including world literature, Eastern religions, and comparative art and culture."--June McDaniel, College of Charleston

"A comprehensive presentation of the Rasa Lila chapters from the Bhagavata Purana has been much awaited, and this volume by Dr. Graham Schweig will surely satisfy scholars and aesthetes alike. Dr. Schweig's knowledgeable mind has danced well with his sensitive heart to produce a great accomplishment."--Acharya Shrivatsa Goswami, Radha Raman Temple, Vrindavana, India and author of Celebrating Krishna
