Banāras, City of Light by Diana L Eck( Book )

34 editions published between 1982 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 970 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the oldest living cities in the world, Banaras is the holy place of the Hindus, as significant to them as Jerusalem is to Jews and Christians and Mecca is to Muslims. Referred to by Hindus as Kāshī (the Luminous), the city is visited by pilgrims from all over India, who come to bathe in the Ganges--many, indeed, to die on its sacred banks. Basing her work on Sanskrit texts and on her experience of the city itself, the author analyzes the art and architecture, geography, history, and anthropology of Banaras and describes its elaborate and thriving rituals, its myths and literature, and its continuing importance to religious seekers."--Book cover

Acting on faith women's new religious activism in America( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A documentary film that offers an intimate look at the lives and work of three American women - one Buddhist, one Hindu, and one Muslim - for whom faith, activism, and identity are deeply intertwined. The film shows these women at work, with their families, and at play. We hear them reflect on their experiences, and tell us in their own voices what kinds of identities they seek to build ? for themselves and for their communities. Their stories help us to consider the compatibility of feminism and religion, and the tension of being a voice of critique without alienating one's community or inviting outside prejudice. Their strategies are simple yet surprising: Shamita Das Dasgupta uses strong female figures in Hindu myth to provide encouragement to battered women to leave abusive husbands; Laila Al-Marayati illustrates how the Muslim principle of 'zakat' served as the inspiration for the first free clinic in South Central Los Angeles; Mushim Ikeda-Nash integrates the uniquely relational experiences of women into the American Buddhist practice. This film offers insight into, and encourages dialogue on, the powerful streams of thought and action that are being created by women activists of different religious and cultural traditions here in the United States. It is a face-to-face encounter with the women who are pioneering this new religious activism
