The Hindu Erotic
€ 14.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Perhaps more than any other religion Hinduism is associated in the modern mind with the erotic. The Kama Sutra and the sexual activity portrayed in stone at the great medieval Indian temple complex of Khajuraho are renowned the world over. The classical Hindu exploration of eroticism is manifestly one of the supreme expressions of the human spirit. Hindu sculpture, defined as uniquely able to express inner states of being, is no less able to portray the beauty of eroticism. At the same time, many Hindus see their religion rising above the world of the senses and deprecate western enthusiasm for a perceived erotic India. In this important book David Smith explores the true significance of Hindu eroticism. He shows that while withdrawal from the senses is a major component of Hinduism, it is precisely because the Hindu appreciation of the power of the senses is so very refined that asceticism developed in India as a counter-reaction. He argues that so varied, extensive and diffused is the Hindu idea of the erotic that it is central to understanding the inner heart of Hinduism. Profound and stimulating in equal measure, and illustrated throughout by some of the greatest examples of Hindu erotic art, ´The Hindu Erotic´ will be essential reading for anyone interested in Indian religion, sexuality, and South Asian culture.

Hindu-Tempel in Deutschland
€ 24.90 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

´´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
