The Bhakti Virtual Archive (BHAVA)

The Bhakti Virtual Archive (BHAVA) is a digital project that is under development, to create a freely accessible online platform for exploring scholarship on diverse regional bhakti traditions. At BHAVA’s core will be an expertly curated database of research on South Asian devotional traditions that supports research and teaching about South Asian history, literature, philosophy, language, and culture. We have been developing BHAVA gradually over the past few years and have recognized the necessity of getting an external grant to support more intensive work.  This page will be updated as our work progresses.
