Trika: Grundthemen des Kaschmirischen Sivaismus

Der kaschmirische Sivaismus, auch Trika (das triadische System) genannt, ist eine der faszinierendsten religiösen Traditionen Indiens. Er integriert sowohl Philosophie, mystische Theologie und Praxis als auch Ästhetik. Trotz einer umfangreichen Literatur in Sanskrit ist diese Tradition, die zum hinduistischen Tantrismus gehört, im Westen noch weitgehend unbekannt. Der Band stellt die erste Einführung in den kaschmirischen Sivaismus in deutscher Sprache dar. In verständlicher Weise erläutert die Autorin Grundthemen dieser Tradition wie "uni-verselle Harmonie", "göttliche Energie", "die spirituellen Wege" etc. Weiters gibt sie Impulse für einen Dialog zwischen christlicher und divaitischer Mystik, der erst noch am Anfang steht. Diese Begegnung kann zu einer Bereicherung der mystischen Theologie und Praxis des Christentums beitragen.

In today¿s world, the boundaries within which Christian theologians operate are becoming ever more permeable, and Christian theology is increasingly influenced and challenged by multiple ¿outside¿ factors. In Western Europe, two such factors stand out in particular: the so-called ¿turn to religion¿ in continental philosophy and religious diversity. Theologians working with contemporary continental philosophers and theologians engaging the multireligious world tend to work quite separately from one another. The aim of the present book is therefore to initiate a conversation between these two groups of theologians. The question of truth was chosen because it is both a key issue in contemporary-philosophical debates (in the continental and analytic traditions) and one that arises in complex and problematic ways in the praxis of, and theoretical reflection on, interreligious dialogue. Some of the pressing questions that are addressed by the contributors to this volume are: What is truth? What is theological truth? How does the issue of truth arise from interreligious encounter? To what extent can or should the nature of truth be discussed explicitly during interreligious dialogue? Or should the question of truth be rather postponed in the interest of successful interreligious encounter? Is there a hermeneutical concept of truth and, if so, how can it be of help for theological reflection on the question of truth and on the role and place of truth in the context of dialogue between religions?

Ethical Contexts and Theoretical Issues

Essays in Ethical Thinking

Ethics has become a particularly relevant topic for discussion and a subject for serious study. It has a very long tradition, of course; but nowadays one hears frequently of the need, because of abuses or concerns, to formulate and adopt ethical codes in various areas or professions. This book aims to make a philosophical contribution to the discussions and debates on the topic. Compared to the traditional approach to the philosophical study of ethics, however, this book adopts a different strategy. It shows that such ethical thinking, in the concrete particulars, originates in various academic and professional contexts, among others. But inasmuch as theoretical issues require wider and more intensive attention, it argues that ethical thinking needs to be pursued further and that it can be aided by philosophical investigations. In its concluding chapters the book presents an alternative foundation for ethical decision-making. Philosophically grounded, it moves away from an individualistic ethical perspective to a relational one that has been shaped through dialogue with the various contexts in which ethical think-ing arises.

Winged Faith

Rethinking Globalization and Religious Pluralism through the Sathya Sai Movement

Author: Tulasi Srinivas

Publisher: Columbia University Press

ISBN: 0231520522

Page: 448

The Sathya Sai global civil religious movement incorporates Hindu and Muslim practices, Buddhist, Christian, and Zoroastrian influences, and "New Age"-style rituals and beliefs. Shri Sathya Sai Baba, its charismatic and controversial leader, attracts several million adherents from various national, ethnic, and religious backgrounds. In a dynamic account of the Sathya Sai movement's explosive growth, Winged Faith argues for a rethinking of globalization and the politics of identity in a religiously plural world. This study considers a new kind of cosmopolitanism located in an alternate understanding of difference and contestation. It considers how acts of "sacred spectating" and illusion, "moral stakeholding" and the problems of community are debated and experienced. A thrilling study of a transcultural and transurban phenomenon that questions narratives of self and being, circuits of sacred mobility, and the politics of affect, Winged Faith suggests new methods for discussing religion in a globalizing world and introduces readers to an easily critiqued yet not fully understood community.
