Hindu Selves in a Modern World: Guru Faith in the Mata Amritanandamayi Mission
Routledge; London, UK; 041533988X / 9780415339889; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
This book explores devotional Hinduism in a modern context of high consumerism and revolutionised communications. It focuses on a fast-growing and high-profile contemporary Hindu guru faith originating in India and attracting a transnational following. The organization is led by an extremely popular female guru, Mata Amritanandamayi, whom devotees worship as an avatar and a healer of the ills of the contemporary world. By drawing upon multi-sited ethnographic fieldwork among the Mata's primarily urban, educated 'middle class' Indian devotees, the author provides crucial insights into new trends in popular Hinduism in apost-colonial and rapidly modernizing Indian setting. Contents Acknowledgemets 1. Introduction 2. Encountering the Mata 3. An avatar with a mission 4. Choosing to surrender 5. Spiritual pathways 6. Experiencing divine love 7. East meets West? 8. Conclusion Appendix Glossary Notes References Index. Printed Pages: 195. 031121
