Description
This study from a scholar of India studies and religious studies introduces Advaita Acarya—one of the leading figures in the genesis of the 15th-century Bengali Vaisnava movement and a mentor to its founder Caitanya—examines the ways in which Advaita's followers used his life story to construct a political and religious movement.

"To write this book on Caitanya's elder companion, Advaita Acarya, [Rebecca] Manring has done everything humanly possible: traveled throughout West Bengal and Bangladesh, consulted archives, unearthed manuscripts, and interviewed scholars and descendants. This is the final, conclusive word on Advaita Acarya."—Rachel Fell McDermott

"Given the historical depth of the book, its post-colonial implications, and the interesting place of Advaita Acarya in the Caitanya tradition, Reconstructing Tradition may well turn out to be the book of choice for studying Hindu hagiography."—Daniel Gold
