Nine Lives - In Search of The Sacred in Modern India
London: Bloomsbury, 2009
Dalrymple's life-long quest to explain the mystery of India's multi-cultural faiths has never been better than in this examination of nine traditions of worship.
Following among others, a Buddhist monk, a Jain nun, a Tantric skull feeder, a temple dancer, an epic chanter, and a sacred prostitute and her daughters, Dalrymple brilliantly encounters new definitions of the holy.
