The Spirit of Hindu Law

The Spirit of Hindu Law by Donald R. Davis Jr Jr
English | 21 Jan. 2010 | ISBN: 0521877040 | 208 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

Law is too often perceived solely as state-based rules and institutions that provide a rational alternative to religious rites and ancestral customs. The Spirit of Hindu Law uses the Hindu legal tradition as a heuristic tool to question this view and reveal the close linkage between law and religion.

This is a translation of a 12th-century Sanskrit legal text, with the original text. The Dayabhaga was one of the most important texts in the history of Indian law. The text, fairly late and inspiring little attention, is important because the British elevated it to such prominence in their new colony in the early 19th century.

Hindu Ritual at the Margins: Innovations, Transformations, Reconsiderations (Studies in Comparative Religion)

Hindu Ritual at the Margins: Innovations, Transformations, Reconsiderations (Studies in Comparative Religion) by Tracy Pintchman, Linda Penkower
English | November 15th, 2014 | ISBN: 1611173892 | 250 pages | PDF | 2.16 MB

Hindu Ritual at the Margins explores Hindu forms of ritual activity in a variety of -marginal- contexts. The contributors collectively examine ritual practices in diaspora; across gender, ethnic, social, and political groups; in film, text, and art; in settings where ritual itself or direct discussion of ritual is absent; in contexts that create new opportunities for traditionally marginalized participants or challenge the received tradition; and via theoretical perspectives that have been undervalued in the academy. In the first of three sections, contributors explore the ways in which Hindu ritual performed in Indian contexts intersects with historical, contextual, and social change.
