Making the Impossible Possible in the Worship of Mount Govardhan

David L. Haberman

  • Explores conceptions of and worshipful interactions with Mount Govardhan, a sacred mountain in India that is considered an embodied form of Krishna
  • Considers the place and history of the pejorative concept of idolatry in the comparative study of religions
  • Examines ways in which scholars engaged in the difficult work of representing other cultures struggle to explain radically foreign concepts
