About the book :
“Tribal religions ” have been called mere “folk religions” owing to their local nature, oral traditions and lack of dogma, as well as their strong connections to nature and the Earth. Such so-called folk religions are practiced throughout Asia, particularly China and Vietnam. Hinduism used to be counted as a mere folk religion previous to the recognition. of its cultural and philosophical connections. part of the shadow of colonial thought.
Indic thought has long been connected to North-East Bharat through Hindu and Buddhist traditions. These include Shaivism, Shakta worship. Vaishnavism, Theravada and Tibetan Buddhist traditions. These traditions have interwoven with local and tribal practices since the most ancient period, much as they have throughout Asia historically, so that there is no fundamental difference between them. Northeastern traditions reflect the same concerns for dharma from our collective social activities to our individual spiritual practices.
Spiritual Thoughts of the North-East Bharat, Compiled by Sri. L Khimun, is a remarkable compendium of spiritual thoughts and insights by several notable thinkers of the region.
