Abstract [en]

Volume V of Brill's Encyclopedia of Hinduism covers religious symbols ranging from gemstones and mudras to sacred threads and vihanas. The topic of modern Hindu religious movements and teachers is examined in the comprehensive last section. The article explores the life and thought of Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati, a Hindu teacher that lived during the colonial period in Kolkata, West Bengal. He founded the Gaudiya Math, an international movement that became the forerunner of ISKCON, also known as the Hare Krishna movement.
