Anthropological Dimensions of Pilgrimage
Northern Book Centre, 2009 - Hindu pilgrims and pilgrimages - 58 pages
The most ethnographic studies on the pilgrimage focus in the sacred places rather than pilgrimage itself. The present study takes into account both these dimensions. The history of Shri Mata Mansa Devi temple is as old as other famous Shakti Sthals of India. The details of these Shakti Sthals is given in Shiva Purana. The data on various aspects relating to socio-cultural, psychological, economic and religious dimension of the pilgrims are given in this book. This book is intended to be of interest to all those who are interested to learn about pilgrims and pilgrimage, especially those in the disciplines of Anthropology, Sociology, Psychology, History, Geography, Sanskrit and and its allied subjects
