Summary

The study of modern Indian responses to the challenge of pluralism reveals the outcome of 2500 years of experience in this "living laboratory" of religious encounter, and offers wisdom to the modern West in its relatively recent encounter with this challenge. A remarkable team of scholars joins forces in this book to examine how religious pluralism actually functions in India. It focuses on both the responses from within Hinduism and of other religions in India, with chapters on Parsis, Indian Islam, Indian Christianity, Sikhism, and Tibetan Buddhism.

Harold G. Coward is Professor of Religious Studies and Director of Religious Studies and Director of the Humanities Institute at the University of Calgary. In addition to Jung and Eastern Thought (1985, also published by SUNY Press, Coward's books include Bhartrhari (1976), Sphota Theory of Language (1980), Studies in Indian Thought (1983), and Pluralism: Challenge to World Religions (1985).
