Several scholars in India and abroad have used the sacred complex model of Prof. L.P. Vidyarthi to study the nature and process of compromise and cooperation among various faiths, sects and traditions of Hindu civilization as reflected in different Hindu places of pilgrimage. This book has revealed the way the sacred complex model can be applicable to a single dominant shrine, as a nexus of ritual activities, economic cooperation and social ties, in understanding the characteristics of Hindu civilization. The author has used sacred complex as a conflux of seven elements comprising sacred geography, sacred performances, sacred specialists, sacred sacrifices, sacred sacrifices, sacred symbols and sacred beliefs, and has specifically attempted to explore the linkage of local pattern of Hindu social organization with the organization of sacred performances. The facts delineated in the book will be helpful to the researchers and educationists working on Hindu civilization. Printed Pages: 450.
