This book contains the reports given at the Eighth Bhakri Conference organized in Leuven in August 2000. A detailed index makes all this matter easily accessible.

Forty scholars came to Leuven, hailing from fourteen different countries-from Japan to the west coast of the United States-each one bringing his or her expertise and experience. Nearly all the reports are published here. In addition, another twenty scholars sent a report or their list of publications.

The result is a fascinating overview of the very wide field that Bhakti studies have become, with a list of 1162 books and articles, and reports about Bengali, Braj, Gujarati, Marathi, Punjabi and Rajasthani literature; lexicography, musicology, Santa literature, Sikhism; Gorakhanath, Kabir, Krishan Bhakti, Lalan Fakir, Mirabai, Ramananda, Surdas, Tulsidas, and many other topics of research.
