All the great religions of the world--Buddhism, Jainism, Hinduism, Christianity, Sikhism, Islam, Judaism, and Zoroastrianism--are found within the geographic boundaries of India, each affecting people in some respect. Focusing on the sociological and anthropological aspects, this study attempts to elucidate the major approaches--evolutionary, structuralist, functionalist, cultural/analytical, phenomenological, and hermeneutic, while offering the reader a clear understanding of the religions' perspectives on time, space, knowledge, sacred persons, and reorientation of the sacred.
