Getting married

Getting Married is the third and final volume on Hindu and Buddhist life-cycle rituals among the Newars of the ancient city of Bhaktapur in Nepal. It combines extensive fieldwork and the edition and translation of relevant ritual handbooks. While Handling Death, the first volume, focussed on the dynamics of death and ancestor rituals, and Growing Up, the second volume, focussed on the rituals of childhood, adolescence and youth (especially the male and female initiation rituals), the present volume deals with a number of rituals related to marriage. After an introductory overview of studies on marriage rituals in Nepal the authors give some basic marriage rules of Hindu and Buddhist Newars, the social topography and hierarchy, the families of the marriage partners as well as the problems of endogamy and exogamy in Bhaktapur. They present a detailed description of Hindu and Buddhist marriage rituals among Newars (which are partly documented on the DVD included in this book) and come to relevant conclusions regarding life-cycle rituals in general and the place marriage rituals occupy in Newar society and Hinduism. Furthermore the texts used by Brahmin and Buddhist priests during these rituals are edited and translated and complemented by comprehensive Appendices including a list of elements of Newar rituals and mantras as well as a mantra and general index to all three volumes. The richly illustrated books have been highly appreciated by the scholarly community as a unique attempt to provide a comprehensive ethno-indological study of all major life-cycle rituals of a certain Hindu and Buddhist community.

Symbols of Kinship Identity
81,30 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This study is a part of my broader interest in traditional Hindu culture. It is influenced by the recent trends in the study of kinship, marriage and rituals in Sociology and Social-Anthropologyfrom the point of view of individual families, this study shows that marriage negotiation and marriage settlement occupies a much important place than marriage rituals, because Hindu marriage is settled for the whole life and once marriage rituals are performed nothing can be done to revoke it. Therefore, every possible attempt is made to select the best available match for a bride or a groom. There is intrinsic relationship between Astrological beliefs and other beliefs related with Hindu marriage and together these beliefs express some of the important aspects of Hindu cosmology.from the Hindu perspective, reality is not given, rather it is made during ritual context and Marriage ritual acts as a paradigm for all other rites at the domestic level.Without a proper study of ritual symbols, kinship identity of men and women cannot be understood properly because outside the symbolic domain of rituals, there is no recognisable reality of kinship identity.

Rituals and Environmental Conservation
50,40 € *

Environmentalism has been criticised as being excessively science oriented and bureaucratic. This view has developed largely due to a lack of engagement with cultural, philosophical & religious aspect of societies in the context of environmentalism. For example, lived experience and innate environmental values as expressed &conserved in the form of religious rituals have not been elaborated in detail. In response to this gap, this work considers the popular Hindu rituals performed by lay persons centred around Peepal tree (Ficus religiosa) . The work examines the impact of globalization & urbanization on rituals around Peepal, for which scientific evidence exists to show it s beneficial influence on the environment. The study was carried out in urban, semi urban & rural location in an Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. Research methods like interview, participant & non participant observation were used. Significant amount of protection of Peepal tree due to its religious and ritualistic importance was found and there is an increase in the ritual activities due to influence of astrologers & media. This may have both positive and negative effects on both the tree & rituals.
