Description Religions of India in Practice de Donald S. Lopez:

The inaugural volume of this series brings together the work of scholars of the religions of India in a new anthology designed to reshape the ways in which the religious traditions of India are understood. Many of the contributions highlight different types of discourse (especially ritual manuals, folktales and oral narratives) and voices (vernacular, esoteric, domestic and female) that have not been sufficiently represented in previous anthologies and standard accounts of Indian religions. The selections are drawn from ancient texts, medieval manuscripts, modern pamphlets, and contemporary fieldwork in rural and urban India. They represent every region in South Asia and include Hindu, Buddhist, Jain, Sikh, and Muslim materials. Some are written texts reflecting elite concerns, while others are transcriptions of oral narratives told by non-literate peasants. Some texts are addressed to a public and pan-Indian audience, others to a limited coterie of initiates in an esoteric sect, and still others are intended for a few women gathered in the courtyard for a household ceremony. The editor has reinforced this diversity by arranging the selections within several overarching themes and categories of discourse (hymns, rituals, narratives and religious interactions), and encourages us to make our own connections. Information about the writer should not be found as well as has been eradicated in the obtain of your author. You could can be serious about other books because of the Donald S. Lopez.
