Book Title:Non-Renunciation: Themes and Interpretations of Hindu Culture
Author(s):Madan, T N
Publisher Name:Oxford University Press
Place of Publication:Delhi
Date of Publication:1987
Annotation:Based largely on fieldwork and contemporary fiction, Madan represents the “disciplined, this-worldly” life of the Hindu householder as an alternative ideal to the figure of the renouncer. After discussing the ideology, lifestyle, and values of the paradigmatic householder, the author concludes by considering the impacts of Western secularism, democracy, and development on traditional Hindu ideals.
