Gurus and Their Followers: New Religious Reform Movements in Colonial India
Gurus and Their Followers: New Religious Reform Movements in Colonial India
Description
About the Author:

Antony Copley is Reader in Modern History at Rutherford College, University of Kent at Canterbury. He is the author of The Political Career of C. Rajagopalachari 1937-1954: A Moralist in Politics; C. Rajagopalachari: Gandhi's Southern Commander; Gandhi: Against the Tide; and Religions in Conflict: Ideology, Cultural Contact and Conversion in Late Colonial India.

About the Book:

This volume brings together essays on the new religious reform movements of the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries. The essays cover the Brahmo Samaj, the Ramakrishna Mission, the Arya Samaj, the Ahmadiya movement, the Theosophical Society and Aurobindo Ghose. The focus is on the remarkable religious and spiritual personalities who inspired new ways of thinking about religion and spirituality; their relationships to social and political change; and their profoundly inward and mystical approach to the religious life.

This volume will be of great interest to scholars of modern India, religious movements and reforms, and cultural history.

I received the 2 sarees and the DVDs. You truly are a treasure house for the music and other related things. You have gotten me an array of CDs,books,DVDs and not least of all beautiful sarees. All always packed with care, delivered in a timely, no hassle fashion. Your business is very trustworthy and I am so glad to have when I need to look for something.

Hello, Just a short feedback on your new website layout: the old one was better than most of what you come across on the www, but you've managed to make it even better. I very much like the new look of the book pages and 'my gallery' pages. Thanks again for offering me a look inside the books. It's a big help for finding out if it's really what I want. Everything is perfect: the presentation of the items, your way of handling the orders, and the fast and always diligently packed parcels. Thanks to all at Exotic India, Walter
Walter

Thanks to all the staff at Exotic Art for helping me acquire these wonderful books from the holy land of Bharata Varsha. Happy new year to you all and all glories to Sri Krsna, peace...

Exotic India is a fine organization to do business with. I have had the best trading experience and the very best customer service. The communication I have had with Vipin K. is of the highest quality; my questions and requests were quickly and professionally answered and fulfilled. A special thanks to the artist Kailash Raj for the beautiful art he produces; I have certainly been enriched by the way his art exemplifies the stories they tell. Many Thanks to all concerned.
W. J. Barnett, USA
My beautiful shawl arrived today. Thank you so much for this lovely shawl. Really, it is nicer than the photograph. I hope you and yours have a very Happy New Year and much prosperity in the New Year. With gratitude
Tom Anderson, Canada
An excellent website, as always. I do not even mention its content, which is beautiful beyond words, but I am merely referring to the great functionality and optimal design of your website. Links always work, the information is accurate and complete, images are very clear, including scanned content of your books. A pleasure to purchase from you.
Oreste, USA
I just wanted to extend my profound thanks to you for expediting my order. It was so well packaged and all import processes taken care of so the beautiful statue arrived in fabulous condition. It looks truly wonderful and I am so happy to have Lord Ganesh take pride of place in my home. Thank you again for your superb service. Best regards
