"Modern Sannyasins"
96,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The work presents a novel argument about how Protestant missionary Christianity came to deeply influence Hindu society. The historical backdrop is an integral part of that argument, showing how previous so-called heterodox movements (viz. Buddhism, Janism) have from time to time greatly affected Hinduism, despite its protective wall of caste hierarchy and seemingly monolithic religio-cultural durability. That Protestant Christianity in this context should have succeeded as it did in penetrating the Tamil Hindu society in Sri Lanka is due chiefly to the sannyasic image of its missionaries.The work is in effect a comparative study in religious phenomena. The study makes a major contribution to scholarly understanding of Christian mission and colonialism in the subcontinent, and Tamil history and sociology in Sri Lanka.

Discworld (world)
55,60 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The Discworld is the fictional setting for all of Terry Pratchett's Discworld fantasy novels. It consists of a slightly convex disc (complete with edge-of-the-world drop-off and consequent waterfall) resting on the backs of four huge elephants which are in turn standing on the back of an enormous turtle, named Great A'Tuin (similar to Chukwa or Akupara from Hindu mythology) as it slowly swims through space. The Disc is heavily influenced by magic and while similar to planet Earth, it generally conforms to its own laws of narrative causality. Pratchett first explored the idea of a disc-shaped world in the novel Strata (1981).

'Possessed': A misinterpreted cultural concocti...
39,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

"'Possessed': A Misinterpreted Cultural Concoction For Mental Disorders", is a factual narration in the field of psychiatric literature. This is not a horror story or novel, but exposes something even more demonic than what spirit possession actually is. The work attempts to disseminate the strings between mental health circumstances and superstitious impostors. 'Possessed' does not give a declaration of whether spirit possession exists, it does not bias the audience against proclaimed religious and philosophical occurrences, however, it does take a leap forward in analyzing true stories, news events and facts to understand the cause and effect of socially misconstrued ideas which assign the name 'demonic possession', often to medically diagnosed disorders. With wonderful stories from Hindu mythology, popular cultural beliefs in South Asian construct, religious facts, oral traditions and stimulated practices from across the world, the book connects readers to their childhood and growing years, at the same time establishing a scientific reasoning for 'possessed' people.
