A.J. ALSTON received his doctorate at the Banaras Hindu University working on Post-Samkara Advaita under the supervision of Dr. T.R.V. Murti, and is currently engaged in producing the third volume of his six-volume Samkara Source-Book.Review:
Given the dearth of good, easily accessible translations of bhakti poetry, this volume is highly recommended for undergraduate libraries wherever Indian religions are taught. GLENN E. YOCUM In three introductory essays. Alston discusses the life and work of Mira (pp. 1-32). At the end of the collection of poems in translation he gives valuable terminal notes and explanations. These notes and annotations will be of great use to all students of Vaisnava (bhakti) and Puranic mythology. ---L.M Joshi
