¿Why spiritual INDIA has apropiate ilegitimately our land in Haridwar with phisical violence?

Why some western people still think that India is Gandhi? Why was a western woman Mother Teresa the one who gave a good lesson to all indians of love instead sadhus and ashrams people?Why Haridwar use phisical violence against handicap spanish NGO member to apropiate ilegitimately our land in Kankal Jagjetpur Haridwar? Why european need to make more than 100 days hunger strike in the supose country of angels and spirituality?Why some polititians are looking for their own interest instead of the poors and sufferings brothers?

Exactly. I was about to ask this very question.

India – El Sadu



Wandering With Sadhus


Wandering With Sadhus


$25.16


In this moving ethnographic portrait of Hindu renouncers-sadhus or ascetics-in northern India and Nepal, Sondra L. Hausner considers a paradox that shapes their lives: while ostensibly defined by their solitary spiritual practice, the stripping away of social commitments, and their break with family and community, renouncers in fact regularly interact with householder society. They form a distinctive, alternative community with its own internal structure, but one that is not located in any single place. Highly mobile and dispersed across the subcontinent, its members are regularly brought together through pilgrimage circuits on festival cycles. Drawing on many years of fieldwork, Hausner presents intimate portraits of individual sadhus as she examines the shared views of space, time, and the body that create the ground for everyday experience. Written with an extraordinary blend of empathy, compassion, and anthropological insight, this study will appeal to scholars, students, and general readers alike. *Author: Hausner, Sondra L. *Series Title: Contemporary Indian Studies *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 247 *Publication Date: 2007/12/05 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.25 x 6.44 x 0.76 inches
