The product of a 25-year exploration of India’s cultural and religious traditions, this collection of biographies introduces the reader to nine unforgettable characters, including a Buddhist monk who takes up arms to resist the Chinese invasion of Tibet and then spends the rest of his life trying to atone for the violence by hand printing the best prayer flags in India; a Jain nun who tests her powers of detachment as she watches her best friend ritually starve to death; and a devadasi, or temple prostitute, who initially resists her own initiation into sex work, yet pushes both of her daughters into a trade she now regards as a sacred calling. This fascinating, visceral evocation of India delves deep into the heart of a nation torn between the relentless onslaught of modernity and the ancient traditions that endure to this day.

 

El producto de una exploración de 25 años de las tradiciones culturales y religiosas de la India, esta colección de biografías le presenta al autor nueve personajes inolvidables, incluyendo un monje budista que empuña armas para resistir la invasión china del Tibet, y que el resto de su vida intenta expiar esa violencia estampando las mejores banderas de oración de la India; una monja jainista que pone a la prueba sus poderes de desapego mientras ve como su mejor amiga se priva de comida como ritual; y una devadasi—o prostituta templaria—que se resiste a su propia iniciación en las prestaciones sexuales, para luego empujar a sus hijas a un mundo que ahora considera como una vocación sagrada. Esta fascinante y visceral evocación de la India hurga en el corazón de una nación que debate entre la marcha inexorable de la modernidad y las tradiciones antiguas que siguen hasta el presente.
