Roots of Wisdom, Branches of Devotion

Full Product Description

Roots of Wisdom, Branches of Devotion is the natural continuation of the two previous edited collections on animals and minerals in South Asian religions. This volume reflects on plant life in South Asian traditions. It explores the way in which various religious traditions, including Hinduism, Jainism and Buddhism, have represented and reflected upon the botanical environment - the sacred nature of trees and flora, the significance of plants as food and medicine, agriculture and the use of plants in ritual and myth. The volume is multidisciplinary in its approach and includes studies ranging from anthropology, history, religious studies, medicine and medical humanities to folklore, literature, hermeneutics and philosophy.

Roots of Wisdom, Branches of Devotion was published by Equinox Publishing Ltd in October 2016. The ISBN for Roots of Wisdom, Branches of Devotion is 9781781791202.
