Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book titled The Founder of the Hare Krishnas as Seen by Devotees: a cognitive study of religious charisma contains acknowledgements, a list of illustrations, abbreviations and a note on transliteration. The theoretical concepts and viewpoint of this book arise mainly from the field known as "cognitive science of religion". According to Barrett, the theological level concepts can be studied through self-report, questionnaires, surveys and recorded discourse. Written theological treatises obviously also provide material of this sort. The book attempts to include both levels. However, it is the peculiar nature of this kind of source material that it usually interweaves both levels into the descriptions and for this reason the author have attempted to keep track in the analysis of the shifts in the levels that are focused upon.
