This book contains the reports given at the Eighth Bhakti Conference organized in Leuven in August 2000. Forty scholars came to Leuven, hailing from fourteen different countries -- from Japan to the west coast of the United States -- each one bringing his or her expertise and experience. Nearly all the reports are published here. In addition, another twenty scholars sent a report or their list of publications. The result is a fascinating overview of the very wide field that Bhakti studies have become, with a list of 1162 books and articles, and reports about Bengali, Braj, Gujarati, Marathi, Punjabi and Rajasthani literature, lexicography, musicology, Santa literature, Sikhism, Gorakhanath, Kabir, Krishna Bhakti, Lalan Fakir, Mirabai, Ramananda, Surdas, Tulsidas, and many other topics of research. A detailed index makes all this matter easily accessible.
