"This work analyzes the religious and philosophical underpinnings of the traditions of medicine and the health ideals of Hindus, taking account of their historical and developmental moorings. Hindu concepts of the self and the body are explored to locate the themes of illness, wellness, sexuality, and relationships, on the one hand, and the traditions of curing, on the other. Ayurveda, the principal Hindu medical tradition, is examined from both classical and textual as well as folk and experiential perspectives." "Unlike other volumes in the Health/Medicine and the Faith Traditions series, which have been written by ethicists, church historians, and theologians, this one is the work of a psychiatrist born in India and long resident in the West who deals quite candidly and personally with the tensions in his own life between traditional ways and modern medicine and the difficulties of adherence to Hindu beliefs and values while living in a non-Hindu culture."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

We often hear that alternative medicine is superior to classical medicine, for it treats us holistically, both the physical body and the immaterial part of our nature. Although such an approach seems desirable, it is precisely this aspect that opens the door to spiritual views incompatible with Christianity. Many forms of alternative medicine speak of a divine essence we allegedly possess, of a vital force that we can manipulate, of spiritual beings that can help us, and other such views closely related to Eastern religions and New Age thought. In their desire to find healing at any price, Christians often resort to these methods without realizing the spiritual danger involved. For Christians who want to live consistently with their faith, this book is intended to raise awareness of the hidden beliefs of alternative medicine.

To what extent should spiritual information be part of a patient’s medical assessment? How should physicians respond when patients refuse life-saving care on religious grounds? Should doctors pray with their patients? Questions such as these raise deeper ones about the goals of medicine and the nature of healing. In a set of engaging and candid essays, The Soul of Medicine explores the role and influence of spirituality in clinical practice, professionalism, and medical education. The contributors to this volume approach this topic from their own spiritual perspectives—Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, New Age / Eclectic, secular, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and Christian Scientist. Their thought-provoking essays provide rich insights not only into the needs of patients with various world views but also into how spirituality influences the practice of medicine. When their own spiritual issues arise in medical practice, physicians rely on their professionalism, ethics, and education. To better understand how various world views are incorporated into clinical work, doctors must ask themselves—as these contributors have—a series of important questions: What insights about life and healing does your faith provide? How does your faith challenge or reinforce contemporary medicine? How do you assess and address spirituality in clinical practice? How do your own beliefs influence your interactions with patients? The Soul of Medicine encourages medical students and practitioners to recognize the spiritual dimensions of medicine, to consider how these dimensions inform their own education and practice, and to be compassionate about their patients’—and their own—religious beliefs.

The purpose of this treatise is: 1) to draw attention to the presence of situations arising within medical practice in which religious beliefs play an important role. 2) to emphasize the fact that most students and many doctors are given insufficient training in such matters, which are of considerable import to a fair percentage of the public. 3) to provide a few examples of what is meant by a religio-medical situation, and a bibliography for further exploration by the initiate in such matters.

The Concept of Theft in Classical Hindu Law

Description: This work is mainly based on an analysis of primary sources, such as Manu Smrti, Yajnavalkya Smrti, and glosses ascribed to commentators, such as Kulluka, Medhatithi, Vijnanesvara, and others. The author has scrupulously referred to the established scholarly material in this field, and has created a lively debate, accepting or rejecting any given rendition or point of view. This study should contribute significantly to our knowledge of the Hindu's sense of moral obligation to justice. Chanchal Bhattacharya sets out by analyzing the concept of theft and punishment in the classical Hindu law codes. He then presents an extensive selection of relevant texts and commentaries which not only elucidate the context, but also underscore the genius of the commentary literature. In the last portion of the book, the author provides his own translation and interpretations, which should prove invaluable to scholars. In cases where notable conflicts of opinion exist, the author has annotated reasons for his preferences. Readers will also find that he has broken new ground. His boldness in dealing with the difficult task of handling Kautilya's text and its different translations and interpretations is especially noteworthy. This book should capture the scholarly imagination of anyone interested in the very fundamentals of Hindu jurisprudence.
