Hindu Scriptures

Among the sacred books of India are the hymns of the Rig-Veda, the world´s first recorded poems; the ´´magical texts´´ of the Athara-Veda; the stirring pantheistic speculations of the Upanishads; and the Bhagavad-Gita, a cosmic drama of divine self-revelation in human history on the field of human battle. Taken together they represent 3,500 years of a continuous religious tradition that is multifarious, inclusive, and, at the same time, wedded to a central spiritual vision. This edition features the translations and annotations of R. C. Zaehner, a pioneering scholar whose selections in this volume, first published by Everyman´s Library in 1966, have never been bettered as an introduction for the general reader to the Vedic tradition. Zaehner has chosen the most interesting and important verses, rendered in English that is accessible and vivid, and his introduction provides an excellent guide to the historical context, the philosophical significance, and the literary power of these beautiful and ancient texts. Introduction by R.C. Zaehner (Book Jacket Status: Not Jacketed)

Hindu-Tempel in Deutschland

´´Mit dieser Art der Betrachtung der hinduistischen Tempel ist mehr gelungen als nur eine Bestandsaufnahme der Bauwerke zu vollziehen. Carina Back zeigt mit ihrem Blick auf die Tempel, wie die tamilisch-hinduistische Tradition in Deutschland materielle und rituelle Gestalt gewinnt. Die Autorin bietet damit einen religionswissenschaftlichen Spiegel dieser Glaubensgemeinschaft(en), der nicht nur aus fachwissenschaftlicher Perspektive wertvoll, sondern auch von allgemeinem Interesse ist, da er einen Einblick in die zunächst verwirrende Gestaltung hinduistischer Tempel tamilischer Prägung gibt, wie sie sich derzeit in Deutschland finden und für dieses Land maßgeblich, wenn nicht fast ausschließlich, das Erscheinungsbild des Hinduismus als Bestandteil dieser Gesellschaft prägen.´´ PD Dr. Dr. Bertram Schmitz, Hannover

Ancient Hindu Science (eBook, PDF)
€ 18.95 *

To understand modern science as a coherent story, it is essential to recognize the accomplishments of the ancient Hindus. They invented our base-ten number system and zero that are now used globally, carefully mapped the sky and assigned motion to the Earth in their astronomy, developed a sophisticated system of medicine with its mind-body approach known as Ayurveda, mastered metallurgical methods of extraction and purification of metals, including the so-called Damascus blade and the Iron Pillar of New Delhi, and developed the science of self-improvement that is popularly known as yoga. Their scientific contributions made impact on noted scholars globally: Aristotle, Megasthenes, and Apollonius of Tyana among the Greeks; Al-Bir?n?, Al-Khw?rizm?, Ibn Labb?n, and Al-Uql?dis?, Al-J??iz among the Islamic scholars; Fa-Hien, Hiuen Tsang, and I-tsing among the Chinese; and Leonardo Fibbonacci, Pope Sylvester II, Roger Bacon, Voltaire and Copernicus from Europe. In the modern era, thinkers and scientists as diverse as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Johann Gottfried Herder, Carl Jung, Max Müller, Robert Oppenheimer, Erwin Schrödinger, Arthur Schopenhauer, and Henry David Thoreau have acknowledged their debt to ancient Hindu achievements in science, technology, and philosophy. The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), one of the largest scientific organizations in the world, in 2000, published a timeline of 100 most important scientific finding in history to celebrate the new millennium. There were only two mentions from the non-Western world: (1) invention of zero and (2) the Hindu and Mayan skywatchers astronomical observations for agricultural and religious purposes. Both findings involved the works of the ancient Hindus. Ancient Hindu Science is well documented with remarkable objectivity, proper citations, and a substantial bibliography. It highlights the achievements of this remarkable civilization through painstaking research of historical and scientific sources. The style of writing is lucid and elegant, making the book easy to read. This book is the perfect text for all students and others interested in the developments of science throughout history and among the ancient Hindus, in particular.

This book investigates women´s ritual authority and the common boundaries between religion and notions of gender, ethnicity, and identity. Nanette R. Spina situates her study within the transnational Melmaruvathur Adhiparasakthi movement established by the Tamil Indian guru, Bangaru Adigalar. One of the most prominent, defining elements of this tradition is that women are privileged with positions of leadership and ritual authority. This represents an extraordinary shift from orthodox tradition in which religious authority has been the exclusive domain of male Brahmin priests. Presenting historical and contemporary perspectives on the transnational Adhiparasakthi organization, Spina analyzes women´s roles and means of expression within the tradition. The book takes a close look at the Adhiparasakthi society in Toronto, Canada (a Hindu community in both its transnational and diasporic dimensions), and how this Canadian temple has both shaped and demonstrated their own diasporic Hindu identity. The Toronto Adhiparasakthi society illustrates how Goddess theology, women´s ritual authority, and ´´inclusivity´´ ethics have dynamically shaped the identity of this prominent movement overseas. Based on years of ethnographic fieldwork, the volume draws the reader into the rich textures of culture, community, and ritual life with the Goddess.
