Bhagavannāmakaumudī (भगवन्नामकौमुदी), or “Moonlight of God's Name”.—Written by Lakṣmīdhara, a later contemporary of Śrīdhara, around the turn of the fifteenth century, the Bhagavannāmakaumudī argues in the language of Mīmāṃsā that the genre of Purāṇa should be accorded Vedic status. Particular attention is given to justifying the Bhāgavata-purāṇa’s claims that singing God’s name dissolves all sins—a stark rejection of the normative expiatory practices of dharmaśāstra, a discourse that grounds itself in the metalegal framework provided by Mīmāṃsā and its socialization of the ritual world.

context information

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
