Less well-known in the West than the tradition of devotion to Krishna, the Ram tradition is an important component of Hinduism.

Less well-known in the West than the tradition of devotion to Krishna, the Ram tradition is an important component of Hinduism. Ram is the most-worshipped form of the divine in North India today and has long been particularly important to those of the lower castes throughout India.

An introduction to the Ram bhakti tradition and a fascinating account of its practice among a group of Central Indian Untouchables.

Tamesya
Only a person with deep personal experience can write such an insightful analysis of faith as a pillar of strength among the oppressed. Ramdas Lamb has given us a spiritually uplifting account of one pointed devotion and the lives of the Untouchables. I am grateful to have read about the development of Ramnam. I am a recipient of a Ram mantra and while many might see this book as an academic work I have gained a more profound understanding of the mantra's meaning which facilitates my practice. The writing itself is clear even for someone not familiar with Indian philosophy and culture. Highly recommended.

this is an important book looking at often-ignored groups and the Ramnami tradition.
