This fourth volume in the series exploring religions and the
environment investigates the role of the multifaceted Hindu
tradition in the development of greater ecological awareness in
The twenty-two contributors ask how traditional concepts of
nature in the classical texts might inspire or impede an
eco-friendly attitude among modern Hindus, and they describe some
grassroots approaches to environmental protection. They look to
Gandhian principles of minimal consumption, self-reliance,
simplicity, and sustainability. And they explore forests and sacred
groves in text and tradition and review the political and religious
controversies surrounding India's sacred river systems.
