There is a steady and growing scholarly and popular interest in Hindu religious – especially devotional (bhakti) traditions as forms of spiritual practice and expressions of divine embodiment. Associated with this is the attention to sacred images and their worship. This book extends the discussion on Indian images and their worship, bringing historical and comparative dimensions and considering Krishna worship in the context of modernity, both in India and the West. It focuses on one specific worship tradition, the Chaitanya Vaishnava tradition, emerging in sixteenth-century northern and eastern India and now expanded to countries worldwide as a result of missionary Hinduism reaching both the Hindu diaspora and Western seekers.
