Here we find women as healers, goddesses, saints, gurus, nuns and heretics - all sharing a d Religion remains a powerful reality for countless human beings across a range of cultures and systems of beliefs.

This book is about the devotional subcultures which women have always created. Indeed women's rejection of patriarchal interpretations of religion and their creative revising of religion in their daily spiritual practice can be a very dangerous activity. Its authors draw their evidence and inspiration from the Hindu, Buddhist, Islamic and Christian traditions of Asia, in particular. In addition to fascinating glimpses of little known aspects of the feminine within the great religions, this book is also a reflection of the newly emerging spirituality of women in Asia as they experience and respond to the political and social injustices they confront.

Turning finally to religious identity, 72% declared themselves Christian in the 2001 Census, yet fewer and fewer claim to belong to a religion, and the number declaring "no religion" has grown from 31% in 1983 to 51% in 2009, according to British Social Attitudes. There's also a lot more "mash-up" religion around – plenty of Christian Buddhists, Muslim reiki practitioners, even Christian atheists. Religious identity has now become an essentially contested achievement, forged in an exploding market of offers.

Religion remains a powerful reality for countless human beings across a huge range of cultures and widely divergent systems of belief. This book discusses in detail the particular devotional subcultures that women have always created.

  • Finally, formal discourse on asian, post-colonial AND feminine perspectives on spirituality and theology. Don't assume that this book is rebellious and dissenting just for the sake of it. There have been and are women's voices, issues and work in the mainstream of traditional religions but rarely and not enough have they been formally presented, acknowledged and inculcated into the higher echelons, dogma.
    Worthy of reading and consideration for what the heirarchies of traditional religions should take into consideration if they are to stay current, evolve, and survive the needs of civilization whose needs are ever-changing and reaching.

    from the back cover:
    This book is about the devotional subcultures which women have always created. Its authors draw their evidence and inspiraiton from the Hindu, Buddhist, Islamic and Christian traditions of Asia, in particular.
    Here we find women as healers, goddesses, saints, gurus, nuns and heretics. One thing these remarkable women all share is their defiance of orthodoxy and fundamentalist interpretations oppressive of women. Instead they have created religious alternatives which appeal profoundly to huge numbers of women. Not that these altenatives, as the authors who have written this book show, are accepted by the mainly male religious establishment. Indeed women's rejection of patriarchal interpretations of religion and their creative revisioning of religion in their daily spiritual practice
    can be very dangerous activity.
    In addition to fascinating glimpses of little known aspects of the feminine within the great religions, this book is also a reflection of the newly emerging spirituality of women in Asia as they experience and respond to the political and social injustices they confront.
    Ashis Nandy comments: "This remarkable collection of essays should disturb the world of frozen knowledge and its ideas of what constitute sane dissent and a proper ideology of resistance... This is unconventional scholarship at its most intriguing..."
