My article is about the element of paradox vital to our understanding of the divine.  Hindu mythology not only allowed, but embraced this concept in both god and goddesses alike. Rooted in the disciplines of depth psychology, comparative religion and sociology, my work reflects upon ancient Indian writings and the archetypal energy of Krishna.I will argue 1. the comparison between Bhakti yoga practitioners and  Pentecostal Holiness traditions 2.  Indian philosophy supports religion as an intellectual activity 3. we as humans are shaped by our experience of the mysterium  tremendum.

Welcome to Encyclopedia Amanda...where I hope you will allow me the priviledge of informing, educating and most of all entertaining you on a variety of subjects. 

My approach to life and this blog is, shall we say, interdisciplinary; mainly, however, my posts will pertain to mythology/religion, new agey stuff and the social sciences.

Also, I will do my best to cite all sources accurately without making you read lengthy footnotes.  And for now my friends, that is all.
