Capital and Karma - Hinduism and Capitalism Compared.
Orchid Press: Bangkok 1998.
Hardcover mit Schutzumschlag, 204 Seiten, Index, Bibliographie.
ISBN 974-8299-02-3

This is a book about cultural translation and comparison between the seemingly incomparable: Hinduism and Capitalism. Some might argue that one cannot compare Hinduism and Capitalism. Hinduism, though undoubtedly first and foremost a religion, is also the institution which organises Hindu society and economy. And Capitalism is also a culture; a system of beliefs, ideas, values and practices which govern typical modern lifestyles. Both Hinduism and Capitalism can be conceived as cultural logical systems generally influencing the ways people think, feel and communicate. Such a comparative exercise brings forth seemingly opposite worlds, as conceptualised in the present workthrough antinomies like action/inaction, individualism/holism, the economic or the religious project, the activist versus the yogi. Yet there is a common reference point in the concept of the duality of action/Karma-structure/Dharma. It is argued that the duality of action-structure is a particularly fertile 'bridgehead' for cultural translation and comparison between Hinduism and capitalism. Both Hindu and Western traditions have produced sophisticated theories of action and how action relates to agency and structure. The apperception of the duality of action-structure is implicit in the Karma/Dharmateachings which portray the essence of Hinduism.

Orchid Press: Bangkok 1995.
Paperback, 140 Seiten, 108 Farbfotos, 18 Tuschezeichnungen.
ISBN 974-8304-24-8

The earliest evidence of worship of Lord Shiva came from the excavations of two ancient Indus valley civilizations which flourished between 3000 and 2000 BC at Mohenjodaro and Harappa, in present-day Pakistan. Shiva is here presented in 18 short but poignant chapters, dramatically illustrated with rare photographs, by authors who spent long periods with yogis, at festivals, and in sacred places throughout India and Nepal.

K.S. Sandhu / A. Mani (eds.)
Indian Communities in Southeast Asia
ISEAS: Singapore 1993.
Paperback, 998 Seiten.
ISBN 981-210-012-1

In Indian Communities in Southeast Asia thirty-one scholars provide an analytical commentary on the contemporary position of ethnic Indians in Southeast Asia. The books is the outcome of a ten-year project undertaken by the editors at the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies, Singapore. It is multi-disciplinary in focus and multi-faceted in approach, providing a comprehensive account of the way people originating from the Indian subcontinent have integrated themselves in the various Southeast Asian countires. The study provides insights into understanding how Indians, an intra-ethnically diverse immigrant group, have intermingled in Southeast Asia, a region that itself is ethnically diverse.
