Guru English

by Srinivas Aravamudan, Guru English Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Guru English books, Guru English is a bold reconceptualization of the scope and meaning of cosmopolitanism, examining the language of South Asian religiosity as it has flourished both inside and outside of its original context for the past two hundred years. The book surveys a specific set of religious vocabularies from South Asia that, Aravamudan argues, launches a different kind of cosmopolitanism into global use. Using "Guru English" as a tagline for the globalizing idiom that has grown up around these religions, Aravamudan traces the diffusion and transformation of South Asian religious discourses as they shuttled between East and West through English-language use. The book demonstrates that cosmopolitanism is not just a secular Western "discourse that results from a disenchantment with religion, but something that can also be refashioned from South Asian religion when these materials are put into dialogue with contemporary social move-ments and literary texts. Aravamudan looks at "religious forms of neoclassicism, nationalism, Romanticism, postmodernism, and nuclear millenarianism, bringing together figures such as Swami Vivekananda, Sri Aurobindo, Mahatma Gandhi, and Deepak Chopra with Rudyard Kipling, James Joyce, Robert Oppenheimer, and Salman Rushdie. Guru English analyzes writers and gurus, literary texts and religious movements, and the political uses of religion alongside the literary expressions of religious teachers, showing the cosmopolitan interconnections between the Indian subcontinent, the British Empire, and the American New Age.

The Guru In South Asia

by Jacob Copeman, The Guru In South Asia Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Guru In South Asia books, This book provides a set of fresh and compelling interdisciplinary approaches to the enduring phenomenon of the guru in South Asia. Moving across different gurus and kinds of gurus, and between past and present, the chapters call attention to the extraordinary scope and richness of the social lives and roles of South Asian gurus. Prevailing scholarship has rightly considered the guru to be a source of religious and philosophical knowledge and mystical bodily practices. This book goes further and considers the social engagements and entanglements of these spiritual leaders, not just on their own (narrowly denominational) terms, but in terms of their diverse, complex, rapidly evolving engagements with ‘society’ broadly conceived. The book explores and illuminates the significance of female gurus, gurus from the perspective of Islam, imbrications of guru-ship and slavery in pre-modern India, connections between gurus and power, governance and economic liberalization in modern and contemporary India, vexed questions of sexuality and guru-ship, gurus’ charitable endeavours, the cosmopolitanism of gurus in contexts of spiritual tourism, and the mediation of gurus via technologies of electronic communication. Bringing together internationally renowned scholars from religious studies, political science, history, sociology and anthropology, The Guru in South Asia provides exciting and original new insights into South Asian guru-ship.

Rehras Sahib English Translation And Transliteration

by God, Rehras Sahib English Translation And Transliteration Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Rehras Sahib English Translation And Transliteration books, There are three primary purposes of a religious prayer. 1. To refresh your remembrance and awareness of God. 2. To bring your wandering mind into the present moment. 3. To understand the meaning of the prayer and imbibe its teachings into your life in order to further your spiritual progress. By God's grace, presented to you here is the translation of the REHRAS SAHIB into English. At the end of the translation, offered to you is the Transliteration of REHRAS SAHIB, for those who may wish to recite as a prayer in the original Gurumukhi language. The REHRAS SAHIB is the evening prayer in Sikhism. It is recited at the end of a working day, around sunset. This evening prayer is recited by many Sikhs after a hard days work. Praying after a hard day refreshes both body and mind. Five different Gurus contributed to the evening prayer - Guru Nanak Dev Ji, Guru Amar Das Ji, Guru Ram Das Ji, Guru Arjan Dev Ji and Guru Gobind Singh Ji. Each one enlightens another aspect of God. The Benti Chaupai is Guru Gobind Singh Ji's personal prayer for protection and is said to liberate the soul. The recitation of REHRAS SAHIB adds energy to one’s body and mind. It allows one to conclude the day and thank the Almighty. The verse speaks of the greatness of Waheguru (God) and the ways in which ones actions will assist in attaining spiritual elevation. This prayer assists the person when he or she is weak physically, or financially, or with any other material and earthly matters. When you feel hopeless, or gloomy, it will elevate you mentally and give you a fresh and positive view of things. The REHRAS SAHIB as recorded in the Guru Granth Sahib Ji contains hymns of only Guru Nanak Dev Ji, Guru Amar Das Ji, Guru Ram Das Ji and Guru Arjan Dev Ji. The compositions of Guru Gobind Singh Ji were added in REHRAS SAHIB in the late 19th century. This was later approved by the supreme Sikh religious body.
