`Eco-Concerns in Indian Religious Traditions' attempts to study systematically concepts
like ecology, environment, eco-crisis, eco-sophy, eco-spirituality and particularly
eco-concerns from Indian socio-religious context.
It reviews critically "Environmental Issues in India" identifying reasons for
environmental degradation. This book basically focuses on a systematic study for resources
from major Indian Religious Traditions and to develop eco-spirituality in order to promote
a healthy environment in India.
This book also deals with "Prominent Ecological Movements in India" and
"Contributions of Ecologically Enlightened". Finally, Interreligious cooperation
for maintaining the ecological balance for the welfare of all life through partnerships,
forums and networks is rightly emphasised. This book is written to meet the needs of
students of ecology and very particularly lovers of the environment.
