Book Description
The book gives for the first time a comprehensive view of the complex world of India`s sacred place par excellence. It discusses the immaterial essence of "place" - which in Benares materializes in the shape of lingas, deities, ponds, wells or rivers. Thousands of these places represent tirtha, crossings between this world and the other. Since the locative aspect of religion is in constant search of places at which to profit from divine energy, Benares represents the entire universe: the Cardham, the four corners of the subcontinent, the seven sacred cities of India, the twelve lingas of light, all these and many more are found there.
