Date of Publication:1991
Annotation:Emphasizing the moral and spiritual dimensions of the ecological crisis, Klostermaier proposes that Hindu bhakti (devotion), particularly Vaisnavism, is a potential resource for addressing contemporary environmental problems. He envisions a contemporary ecotheology based on the notion that the world is sacred and a part of divine revelation. He commends the Hare Krishna movement for combining bhakti (devotion), ahimsa (non-killing), and ecology in a promising way.
