Hymns of the Tamil Saivite Saints
by F. Kingsbury and G.P. Phillips
This is a short collection of translations of Southern Indian devotional poetry by worshippers of the god Shiva, along with commentary, written by sympathetic Europeans. These poems, as often happens, have been integrated into popular litergy and culture. This will make interesting reading for anyone looking for information about Tamil literature or southern Indian vernacular Hindu traditions.--J.B. Hare, Feb. 3rd, 2010.
