Understanding the Hindu Temple
35,80 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book aims to explain the multiple symbolic meanings encompassed by and in the Hindu temple. Distinct chapters are dedicated to: (1) the multi-level relationship between the temple, the cosmos and the body of the primordial being, (2) the antecedents of Indian sacred monuments, (3) the basic structure of the Hindu temple and the main temple typologies, (4) the sculptural elements, both anthropomorphic and symbolic, (5) the political, economic, and social role played by the temple in Indian society. Lastly, the volume provides a useful glossary of key architectonic terms. This multi-faceted subject-matter is made accessible in the light of its recognisable affinities with Western religio-philosophical traditions.The volume, therefore, offers to the reader, particularly to students of Indian art, a useful teaching tool to understand and to interpret the development of the great sacred Hindu monuments, transforming a highly complex matter into a clear and updated treatise.

"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.

A Comparative Study of the Theological Methodol...
71,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Irenaeus of Lyon, a bishop who lived at the end of the second century and is recorded among the fathers of the Christian church, developed criteria for the understanding of biblical texts. These biblical texts were recognized as writings of divine revelation both by him and by contemporary Christian gnostic teachers with whose interpretations he was at variance. The Indian philosopher Sankara lived in an age closely resembling the European Early Middle Ages. He explained traditional texts of the Veda in a non-dualistic way that differed from other Hindu teachers thus presenting - like Irenaeus - a divine unity that transgresses all tensions. A comparison of the methods used by the two thinkers helps to understand both Christian and Hindu tradition. The author's aim is not primarily to establish differences but to invite dialogue.

Wild Plants of Hindu Kush and Their Cultural Uses
79,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book provides an insight to the traditional uses of wild plants, conservation of economic plants and plant diversity of Utror and Gabral, which are located in the remote Hindu Kush region of District Swat, Pakistan. The area is situated adjacent to the confluence point of Himalayas, Hindu Kush and Karakorum and gifted with diverse and unique flora. Study of this book would help in understanding the utilization of wild medicinal plants in the Hindu Kush Mountains of Pakistan. The people of the region are very poor, illiterate and mostly dependent on wild plants for their daily requirements. They use 176 plant species for more than 42 domestic needs. Most of these plants are used for ethnomedicinal purposes, while some are sold in the market. Seven species of morels are collected and exported abroad. Over exploitation of the plant resources have threatened 17.61% of the utility plants. The author has introduced a new conservation assessment scale for calculating the conservation status of economic plants in the region. The book also discusses the diversity of Bryophytes, Pteridophytes, Gymnosperms and Angiosperms of the region.

Carbon Management for Promoting Local Livelihoo...
115,78 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book contributes to our understanding of linkages between carbon management and local livelihoods by taking stock of the existing evidence and drawing on field experiences in the Hindu Kush Himalayan (HKH) region, an area that provides fresh water to more than 2 billion people and supports the world's largest population of pastoralists and millions of livestock. This edited volume addresses two main questions: 1. Does carbon management offer livelihood opportunities or present risks, and what are they? 2. Do the attributes of carbon financing alter the nature of livelihood opportunities and risks? Chapters analyze the most pressing deficiencies in understanding carbon storage in both soils and in above ground biomass, and the related social and economic challenges associated with carbon sequestration projects. Chapters deliver insights to both academics from diverse disciplines (natural sciences, social sciences and engineering) and to policy makers.
