considering its inception over 2 hundred years in the past, Swaminarayan Hinduism has flourished right into a transnational move defined as one of many quickest starting to be Hindu teams on the earth. regardless of being one of many biggest and such a lot obvious Hindu traditions either in India and the West, unusually little is understood approximately what the Swaminarayan fellowship believes. An advent to Swaminarayan Hindu Theology offers a entire doctrinal account of the Swaminarayan tradition's trust approach, drawing on its wealthy corpus of theological literature, together with the lessons of Swaminarayan himself and classical commentaries on canonical Vedāntic texts. half I delineates the resources and instruments of Swaminarayan Hindu theology, whereas half II systematically expounds upon its detailed 5 everlasting entities - Parabrahman, Akṣarabrahman, māyā, īśvara and jīva - and mukti (spiritual liberation). In offering those key subject matters theologically and lucidly, Swami Paramtattvadas makes the Swaminarayan Hindu trust process intelligible to students, scholars and severe readers.
