Title : The Feminine Sacred in South Asia
Author : Harald Tambs-Lyche
Edition : Hardbound
ISBN : 9788173042461
Pages : 148p.
Year of Pub : 1999
Price : Rs 300.00
Drawing examples from ritual practice, myth, and sacred texts, the contributors discuss the place of the feminine in the male dominated society of South Asia within the sacred sphere of South Asian religion. The theme is, however, full of contradictions due to differing perceptions on the subject between Hindu, Buddhist and Islamic thought. Thus the volume, contributing to the debate on feminity in South Asian religion, would also be of interest to scholars dealing with gender in a broader perspective.
