Sexuality and spirituality are inextricably linked in the mythology and texts of ancient India. At the heart of this culture's teachings are sensuous stories of the gods making love that demonstrate the power and purpose of human passion. In Erotic Spirituality and the Kamasutra, Wendy Doniger guides us through India's seductive tales and hidden insights into the art of living and lovemaking. Drawing on amorous myths as well as the world's oldest text of erotic love (the Kamasutra), this scholar of Sanskrit and Hindu mythology reveals rituals to prepare yourself and your bedroom for the delights of erotic love, the language of attraction, recognizing the unspoken signals from a suitor, how the tension of sexual battle enhances pleasure, and much more. Here for the first time in audio, a full-length course about spirituality's embrace of sexual pleasure. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Wendy Doniger. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/sp/true/000748/sp_true_000748_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

These studies in religion embrace Hindu, Buddhist and Christian themes and examine the spiritual insights and philosophical reflections of prominent thinkers from different religious traditions. Where appropriate comparisons are drawn between the views of representatives of the different traditions from an empathetic standpoint and in a way that would meet with the approval of adherents of those religions. The main aim of these essays in the pluralistic religious situation of today is to enable us to escape from the small island of our own cultural tradition and to explore the richness and diversity of other cultures with their wide variety of religious experiences.

Included in Editors’ Top 75 Community College Resources for June 2016 from CHOICE 'Routledge continues to make a remarkable contribution to South Asian studies through its journals, monographs, and edited books. This is another volume that South Asianists will embrace. Jacobsen and his international, five-member editorial board have divided the 32 chapters into five sections: 'Foundation', six chapters on various topics from partition to the economy and the constitution; 'India and the World' (six chapters); 'Society, Class, Caste and Gender', eight chapters on topics large and small; 'Religion and Diversity', eight chapters, including coverage of Hindu pilgrimage sites, Ambedkar, Muslims, and Christians; and 'Cultural Change and Innovations', whose four chapters deal with femininity, the 'new Indian male', food, and Siddha medical knowledge. In short, topics that appeal strongly to postmodernists and postcolonialists, written in language using terminology that appeals to them. The editor's introduction summarizes the volume's contents and writes about population and economic growth. [...] this is a major contribution. Highly recommended. All levels/libraries.' R. D.

Islamism and Democracy in India
40,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Jamaat-e-Islami Hind is the most influential Islamist organization in India today. Founded in 1941 by Syed Abul Ala Maududi with the aim of spreading Islamic values in the subcontinent, Jamaat and its young offshoot, the Student Islamic Movement of India or SIMI, have been watched closely by Indian security services since September 11. In particular, SIMI has been accused of being behind terrorist bombings. This book is the first in-depth examination of India's Jamaat-e-Islami and SIMI, exploring political Islam's complex relationship with democracy and providing a rare window into the Islamist trajectory in a Muslim-minority context. Irfan Ahmad conducted extensive ethnographic fieldwork at a school in the town of Aligarh, among student activists at Aligarh Muslim University, at a madrasa in Azamgarh, and during Jamaat's participation in elections in 2002. He deftly traces Jamaat's changing position in relation to India's secular democracy and the group's gradual ideological shift toward religious pluralism and tolerance. Ahmad demonstrates how the rise of militant Hindu nationalism since the 1980s--evident in the destruction of the Babri mosque and widespread violence against Muslims--led to SIMI's radicalization, its rejection of pluralism, and its call for jihad. Islamism and Democracy in India argues that when secular democracy is responsive to the traditions and aspirations of its Muslim citizens, Muslims in turn embrace pluralism and democracy. But when democracy becomes majoritarian and exclusionary, Muslims turn radical.
