Cambridge University Press, the world’s oldest publishing house and one of the most reputed academic publishers in the world, has released An Introduction to Swaminarayan Hindu Theology, a 350-page book in English on Akshar-Purushottam Darshan.

Authored by Paramtattvadas Swami, An Introduction to Swaminarayan Hindu Theology provides a comprehensive doctrinal account of the Swaminarayan tradition’s belief system, drawing on its rich corpus of theological literature, including the teachings of Bhagwan Swaminarayan himself and classical commentaries on the three canonical Vedāntic texts, the Upaniṣads, Śrīmad Bhagavad Gītā and Brahmasūtras. Part 1 of the book delineates the sources and tools of Swaminarayan Hindu theology, while Part 2 systematically expounds upon its distinctive five eternal entities – Parabrahman, Akṣarabrahman, māyā, īśvara and jīva – and mukti (spiritual liberation). In presenting these key themes theologically and lucidly, Paramtattvadas Swami makes the Swaminarayan Hindu belief system intelligible to scholars, students and serious readers.
