Cambridge University Press, the world‚Äôs 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‚Äôs belief system, drawing on its rich corpus of theological literature, including the teachings of Bhagwan Swaminarayan himself and classical commentaries on the three canonical VedƒÅntic texts, the Upani·π£ads, ≈örƒ´mad Bhagavad Gƒ´tƒÅ and Brahmas≈´tras. 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 ‚Äì Parabrahman, Ak·π£arabrahman, mƒÅyƒÅ, ƒ´≈õvara and jƒ´va ‚Äì 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.
