R. Umamaheshwari con From Possession To Freedom: The Journey Of Nili-nilakeci

The Tamil text, Nīlakeci, dated around the 5th century CE (debated), is an unusual literary creation. It retrieves a violent, vengeful pēy (female possessing spirit) of Palayanur, transforming her into a Jaina philosopher. It was a profoundly subversive idea of its time, using the female persona and voice (for a hitherto disembodied being) to debate with preceptors of different schools of thought/religions of the time, all male, barring the Buddhist nun, Kuṇṭalakeci. Nīlakeci’s debates focus on questions of non-violence, existence of the soul, authorship and caste, among others. However, in order to truly appreciate this alter-texting, one has to unravel layers of other texts and traditions: the lesser known villuppāttu (bow-song) and nātakam (theatrical) versions of the pēy Nīli stories, as well as the story of Kuṇṭalakeci’s own transformative journey. Umamaheshwari situates these in a comparative context, while maintaining the centrality of the debates within Nīlakeci, using translation of selected excerpts.From Possession To Freedom: The Journey Of Nili-nilakeci, Descargar ebook en línea From Possession To Freedom: The Journey Of Nili-nilakeci Gratis, lectura gratuita de Ebook From Possession To Freedom: The Journey Of Nili-nilakeci En línea, en línea, que aquí se puede descargar este libro en formato PDF de forma gratuita y sin la necesidad de gastar dinero extra.
