Graduate Student

Manasicha is pursuing a PhD in Asian literature, religion, and culture from the Department of Asian Studies at Cornell.

Her project, under the supervision of Lawrence J. McCrea, focuses on the development of the Śrīvaiṣṇavas’ soteriological doctrine of prapatti, especially in the time of Vedāntadeśika. She explores the relationship between Vedāntadeśika’s systematization of prapatti and the production of his multilingual corpus, written in Sanskrit, Maṇipravāḷa, and Tamil.
