Grhastha: the householder in Ancient Indian religious culture,

Edited/Translated by: ed. by Patrick Olivelle

This volume problematizes the figure of the householder within ancient Indian culture and religion. It shows that the term grhastha is a neologism and is understandable only in its opposition to the ascetic who goes away from home (pravrajita). It also analyzes the meanings, functions, and role of the householder from the earliest times until about the fifth century CE.
