   schema:description "'In an engagingly discursive fashion the text leads us from the way in which this multi-stranded tradition serves to inspire the yogis of Rishikesh, to give householders sense of providing meaning and purpose to their everyday life, and hence such key events of birth, marriage and death, as well as providing the foundation of a plethora of immensely popular Bollywood mythologicals. Students will undoubtedly enjoy reading this book, and in doing so will learn a great deal about the diversity, as well as about the on-going dynamics, of this ancient and irrepressible tradition.'-Roger Ballard, Centre For Applied South Asian Studies, UK."@en ;
