Schweig is a scholar of comparative theology and religion with a focus on the traditions of love mysticism in world religions and specifically those coming from sacred India. Among his numerous publications is Dance of Divine Love: The Rasa Lila of Krishna from the Bhagavata Purana, published by Princeton University Press in 2005, a work from which he will draw in this presentation.
