Finn Moore-Gerety — Between Sound and Silence in Early Yoga: Meditation on the Sacred Syllable ‘OM’ at the Moment of Death

Friday, March 8, 2019

2:00pm – 4:00pm

McKinney Conference Room, Watson Institute

Finnian Moore Gerety works on texts, rituals, and the senses in South Asian religions, with a focus on Hindu traditions of India. He is especially interested in Sanskrit mantras: how they are performed, textualized, and passed on; how they are embodied and sensed; how they are reflected upon and interpreted; how they are transformed in the digital age; and how they influence identity, community, and heritage within religious traditions.
