 DESCRIPTION
spacer
Indian Religions is an anthology of written and oral texts by spiritual teachers from South Asia. The period covered is some 3500 years--from the period of the Rig Veda to the 1980s. More than a hundred mystics are included. All the major traditions (Vedic, Hindu, Jain Buddhist, Sufi and Sikh) as well as heterodox and transgressive traditions, are represented. No important mystic is omitted, and a number of less-known ones are included, among them women and spiritualists from the lower castes. Each selection is sufficiently long to give a good idea of the source. Translations are chosen for straightforwardness and readability. Texts in which the mystic speaks of his or her own experience are given prominence. The book is divided into eighteen sections, each of which represents a major tradition or group of traditions. Each section and subsection is introduced by an extended note. Short notes are also provided in order to illuminate individual texts and teachers. The editor's introduction discusses the phenomenon of spiritual experience and its relationship to organised religion. Current controversies in the study of mysticism are also discussed.
