The Legends Of Nathasiddhas In Early Medieval Art And Old Marathi Literature

4 Oct '18 6.30 pm - 8.30 pm
 
 

The Natha order or Sampradaya is well-known because of its association with yoga, alchemy and tantric sorcery. This order is said to have originated from their first gurus, Matsyendra and Goraksạnatha. Some of the famous Natha legends are depicted in sculptures and other visual forms on the walls of early medieval temples and monasteries. The literary works from 13th century Maharashtra are very helpful in studying these depictions as well as the Natha traditions and hagiographical accounts of Nathasiddhas (Natha adepts). This seminar throws light on the visualization, transmission and circulation of lesser known Natha legends that have mystified people for millennia.

Session I: Introduction to Natha Sampradaya.
Session II: Legends of Nathasiddhas from 13th Century Maharashtra.

Please note that registrations via email are required for this free seminar.
