              Explores the relationship between the disciplines of Religious Studies and Theology. This volume examines whether the two disciplines are strange bedfellows sharing little in common but bedding together out of sheer habit, or whether there is something that the two share in an or...ganic sense, which sustains the link between them.

              Ayurveda, Spirituality and Well-being: The Globalisation of an Ancient Health Tradition

              Ayurveda, Spirituality and Well-being: The Globalisation of an Ancient Health Tradition (Hardback)

              Ayurveda, Spirituality and Healing examines the changes undergone by the South Asian health-care tradition, Ayurveda, as a result of its assimilation into the Western holistic health milieu over the last four decades. It explores the ways in which the mind-body-spirit sector in t...he West, with its focus on seekership, spirituality, and self-empowerment through self-understanding, shapes Ayurveda's interpretation, promotion and practice in modern transnational Anglophone contexts. As with other Eastern traditions that have gained popularity in the West in recent times, 'globalised' Ayurveda has generated a host of competing discourses on what constitutes 'authentic' tradition, and whether Western forms of this tradition can be considered legitimate. This book makes a unique contribution to the scholarship on the subject by arguing that the new forms of Ayurveda in the Western holistic health milieu must be taken seriously, not dismissed as 'inauthentic', or measured against traditional South Asian forms of Ayurveda. These new manifestations reflect the particular concerns of 'alternative' health practitioners in late-capitalist contexts in the West, who draw upon this tradition in creative and expedient ways to address the perceived needs of their times.

              Public Hinduisms critically analyses the way in which Hinduism is produced and represented as an established feature of modern public landscapes. It examines the mediation, representation and construction of multiple forms of Hinduism in a variety of social and political contexts..., and in the process establishes it as a dynamic and developing modern concept. The essays in this volume are divided into themes that address different aspects of the processes that form modern Hinduism. The book includes discussions on topics such as ecumenical initiatives, the contemporary interpretation of particular sampradaya and guru traditions, modes of community mobilisation and the mediation strategies of different groups. It also provides India and diaspora-focused case studies as well as 'Snapshot' views elaborating on different themes. Taking a critical approach to the idea of Hinduism and the way it becomes public, the book provides an interesting read on contemporary Hinduism.
