Description
From a postal worker performing puja for the safe passage of a parcel to people who believe they are gods, religion suffuses every aspect of daily life in India. Sacred India explores the presence of the divine in the mundane, through breathtaking photography and intriguing stories of the people involved. But Sacred India isn't just another picture book. It examines the less savoury aspects of religious life in India, from sati to assassination. The major contributors come from within Lonely Planet's own ranks; Hindu, Sikh and Moslem, and they are as diverse as their subject. Sacred India is the perfect book for anyone who has ever travelled to India and wondered at the worship of holy cows or the discipline of Ramadan fasters. The book will delight the eye and enrich the soul.
