(p.1) Introduction: Moving between Worlds
A Living Theology of Krishna Bhakti

Graham M. Schweig

Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter focuses on a complicated traditional theology that is centered on the divinity of Vishnu, or Krishna. It first discusses the concept of faith, and then introduces Tamal Krishna Goswami, who was one of the primary religious leaders and teachers of the Hindu-Vaishnava order in the world. The discussion shifts to Goswami's teacher, A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the founder of the Hare Krishna Movement, or the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON). This chapter also examines the main focus of Goswami's work—the central aspects of Prabhupada's “living theology”—and presents a brief look at Goswami's early life and career, as well as the methods that were used to complete the present work.

Keywords:   traditional theology, Krishna, faith, Tamal Krishna Goswami, Hindu-Vaishnava order, A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, Hare Krishna Movement, ISKCON, living theology
