Greetings All,
I’ve been thinking about the many uses of the Skt. term pravesha (entrance) throughoutSouth Asian textual and performative traditions: Vedic rituals, possessionevents, royal festivals, etc. I haven’t found much that has been written onthis term specifically, and I’m wondering what happens if we treat it as a “criticalterm” in South Asian religions like bhakti,karma, dharma, etc.
I would be most appreciative for any primary or secondarysources on pravesha and/or any otherexamples where this term – or allied terms (pratishta)– occur. Many thanks in advance, and apologies for cross-posting.
