Faith Movements and Social Transformation

This book examines the role of Hindu-inspired faith movements (HIFMs) in contemporary India as actors in social transformation. It further situates these movements in the context of the global political economy where such movements cross national boundaries to locate believers among the Hindu diaspora and others. In contemporary neoliberal India, HIFMs have become important actors, and they realize themselves by making public assertions through service. The four pillars of the contemporary presence of such movements are: gurus, sociality, hegemony and social transformation. Gurus , who spearhead these movements, create a matrix of possible meanings in their public discourses which their followers pick up to create messages of personal and social change. Sociality is a core strategy of proliferation across such movements and implies social service, which is qualified by memories of the guru and what they are believed to embody. Hegemony is reflected in the fact that social service in such movements often ominously imbibes right-wing or far-right Hinduism. They propose a model of Hindu-inspired social transformation , involving faith building into and transforming the civil society. The book discusses in a nuanced way several Hindu-inspired faith movements of various hues which have made national and international impact. This topical book is of interest to students and researchers in the fields of sociology, anthropology, social work, and social psychology, with a special interest in the study of religious movements.

From the lens of Magnum's Abbas Attar - the mystical world of the Hindu revealed, from ancient rites to contemporary beliefs This latest in Abbas's transcendent series of books on major world religions, featuring ritualistic elements - wind, water, earth, and fire, magic, the spiritualism of animals - to explore the mysteries of the Hindu faith. Shot over two years in India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, and Bali, Abbas's images examine the enigmatic beliefs of sub-sects such as Sikhs and Jains, alongside the everyday life of Hindus, and extend beyond his characteristic black-and-white work to include a series of colour photographs - in his words: 'In India, colour was a temptation I couldn't resist.' The result is this sumptuous volume, a must-have for collectors and armchair travellers around the globe.

Tracing the Absence of Faith

This dissertation seeks to draw the theistic tradition of Gaudiya Vaishnavism, a 16th century devotional Hindu sect, into dialogue with two Western theoretical approaches Deconstruction and Deconstruction. The issue of faith figures prominantly and a serves as the linchpin that connects these diverse discourses which are drawn from different cultural and historical contexts. While faith connects, it also challenges the boundaries and axioms of these individual fields of knowledge, offering a unique comparative examination of this contemporary topic.Using the rubric of postmodernity and the principles of identity and difference, this dissertation argues that the ancient theological doctrine of the Gaudiya faith, acintya-bhedabheda-tattva, meaning simultaneously oneness and difference, underscores how faith comes to be experienced not as an identity but as a difference from God. Faith as lack as understood by this medieval theistic school brings it closer to the postmodern view of faith articulated by Jacques Derrida.

Without parallel in the history of Christianity are the problems arising from the contact of the Gospel with Hinduism in India. What is the Christian's response to the sacred books, sacred rites, well-structured religio-philosophical systems and religions with a claim to universality? What should be his attitude towards the rich heritage of the profound religious experience of Hinduism? Is he to accept it or reject it? Is it possible to integrate Hindu religious experience without compromising his faith? Indian theologians have sought an answer to these and similar problems.
