AN ETHNOGRAPHY OF MYSTICISM: The Narratives of Abhishiktananda, A French Monk In India
AN ETHNOGRAPHY OF MYSTICISM: The Narratives of Abhishiktananda, A French Monk In India
Description
About the Book:

This book attempts to understand the problem of personal experience in religion. It takes the biography of a French monk in India, called Henri La Saux to understand concepts such a friendship and dialogue across different religions. Henri Le Saux became known as Abhishiktananda and is best remembered for his love for Ramana Maharshi the cerebral saint of India.

This book tries to understand Abhishiktananda's love for Ramana expressed through his writings and personal journeys. In order to comprehend mysticism the author focuses on action and renunciation as two arms of the mystical journey. In this regard it compress Abhishiktananda with Simone Weil a great and heroic figure of our age, who dealt with fascism in Europe through personal intervention, liberating herself and others through the wisdom and grace of her encounter with god, and her courage in resisting Nazism.

Can sociology understand the mystic? This is the question that the author tries to answer.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
