Learning love from a tiger : religious experiences with nature
Capper, Daniel, 1962-
Oakland, California : University of California Press, [2016]
Introduction: into Muir's forest -- All the Christian birds chanted -- The donkey who communed with Allah -- Hindu trees tremble with ecstasy -- Sharing Mayan natural souls -- Friendly yetis -- Enlightened Buddhist stones -- Epilogue: the mountain peaks leaped and danced.

"Learning Love from a Tiger explores the vibrancy and variety of humans' sacred encounters with the natural world, gathering a range of stories culled from Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Mayan, Himalayan, Buddhist, and Chinese shamanic traditions. Readers will delight in tales of house cats who teach monks how to meditate, rivers that grant salvation, shamans who shape-shift into jaguars, crickets who perform Catholic mass, and many others. More than a collection of wonderful stories, this book introduces important concepts and approaches that underlie much recent work in environmental ethics, religion, and ecology. Capper's light touch prompts readers to engage their own views of humanity's place in the natural world and in particular question longstanding assumptions of human superiority"--Provided by publisher.

"This festschrift honors UCLA Professor Emerita Susan Downey's meticulous scholarship on the Classical World architecture of sacred spaces, and the objects and imagery contained in those spaces. The contributors, former students and current colleagues of Susan Downey, demonstrate a shared concern for very careful consideration of the evidence in their analyses of religious iconography, cult practices and sacred edifices. The book is divided into sections that echo the title of the volume: icon, cult, and context. The iconography of gods and goddesses, analysis of sacred imagery in the context of ancient cult practices, and the design and decoration of sacred spaces are the main themes of the book. Professor Downey's influence shines through in these discussions of cult objects, iconography, and religious architecture, which echo her mentorship of several generations of art history and archaeology students, and recognize her scholarly achievements"--

Kailas histories : renunciate traditions and the construction of Himalayan sacred geography
McKay, Alex
Boston : Brill, [2015]
Tibet's Mount Kailas is one of the world's great pilgrimage centres, renowned as an ancient sacred site that embodies a universal sacrality. But 'Kailas histories: Renunciate traditions and the construction of Himalayan sacred geography' demonstrates that this understanding is a recent construction by British colonial, Hindu modernist, and New Age interests. Using multiple sources, including fieldwork, Alex McKay describes how the early Indic vision of a heavenly mountain named Kailas became identified with actual mountains. He emphasises renunciate agency in demonstrating how local beliefs were subsumed as Kailas developed within Hindu, Buddhist, and Bön traditions, how five mountains in the Indian Himalayan are also named Kailas, and how Kailas sacred geography constructions and a sacred Ganges source region were related.
