Socio-religious Reform Movements in British India BERTRAMS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The third part of The New Cambridge History of India is devoted to the Indian Empire and the Beginnings of Modern Society. In the first volume, Kenneth Jones looks at the numerous nineteenth-century movements for social and religious change - Christian, Hindu, Muslim, Sikh and Zoroastrian - that used various forms of religious authority to legitimize their reform programmes. Such movements were both indigenous and colonial in their origins and Professor Jones shows how each adapted to the challenge of competing nationalisms as political circumstances changed. The volumes in this part of the History consider the overall impact of British rule upon the whole sphere of religion, social behaviour and culture. Its coverage is both historical and religious and Socio-religious Reform Movements in British India will appeal to students and scholars in a wide variety of social scientific disciplines.

Gandhi's Body University of Pennsylvania Press

No single person is more directly associated with India and India's struggle for independence than Mahatma Gandhi. His name has equally become synonymous with the highest principles of global equality, human dignity, and freedom. Joseph Alter argues, however, that Gandhi has not been completely understood by biographers and political scholars, and in Gandhi's Body he undertakes a reevaluation of the Mahatma's life and thought. In his revisionist and iconoclastic approach, Alter moves away from the usual focus on nonviolence, peace, and social reform and takes seriously what most scholars who have studied Gandhi tend to ignore: Gandhi's preoccupation with sex, his obsession with diet reform, and his vehement advocacy for naturopathy. Alter concludes that a distinction cannot be made between Gandhi's concern with health, faith in nonviolence, and his sociopolitical agenda. In this original and provocative study, Joseph Alter demonstrates that these seemingly idiosyncratic aspects of Gandhi's personal life are of central importance to understanding his politics-and not only Gandhi's politics but Indian nationalism in general. Using the Mahatma's own writings, Alter places Gandhi's bodily practices in the context of his philosophy; for example, he explores the relationship between Gandhi's fasting and his ideas about the metaphysics of emptiness and that between his celibacy and his beliefs about nonviolence. Alter also places Gandhi's ideas and practices in their national and transnational contexts. He discusses how and why nature cure became extremely popular in India during the early part of the twentieth century, tracing the influence of two German naturopaths on Gandhi's thinking and on the practice of yoga in India. More important, he argues that the reconstruction of yoga in terms of European naturopathy was brought about deliberately by a number of activists in India-of whom Gandhi was only the most visible-interested in creating a "scientific" health regimen, distinct from Western precedents, that would make the Indian people fit for self-rule. Gandhi's Body counters established arguments that Indian nationalism was either a completely indigenous Hindu-based movement or simply a derivative of Western ideals.

Brahmoism is a new religious movement originating in 19th-century Bengal, originating in the context of the Bengali Renaissance, the nascent Indian independence movement and the wider Hindu reform movements of the period. It is a quasi-Protestant, theistic movement within Hinduism, founded by Ram Mohun Roy in Calcutta in 1828. The term has roots in the Sanskrit Brahman. Adherents, known as Brahmos (singular Brahmo) are mainly of Indian, particularly Bangladeshi origin or nationality.The Indian census reported 6,388 adherents as of 1921, declining to 5,378 adherents as of 1931. After Indian independence, by the late 1960s, the movement was reported as "fading out", to a large part because their demands for social reform had been met by the Indian government.While Ram Mohun Roy aimed at reforming Hinduism from within, his successor Debendranath Tagore in 1850 rejected the authority of the Vedas and thus broke away from orthodox Hinduism. Tagore still tried to retain some Hindu customs, but a radical group led by Keshab Chunder Sen broke away and formed the Brahmo Samaj in 1866, pursuing a course that was eclectic, cosmopolitan, and politically active in pushing for social reform. The original group after this called itself Adi Brahmo Samaj .A further schism in 1878 resulted in the formation of the Sadharan Brahmo Samaj.
