  • Religion in Nepal is changing as Nepalese society transforms and globalizes. New middle-class movements and new forms of ethnic identity challenge older traditions. Nepalis face new questions about shamanism, animal sacrifice, meditation, healing, and how the state should deal with a multi-cultural and multi-religious society. Eleven detailed case studies, contextualized by a substantial introduction and a comparative Afterword by renowned political theorist, Rajeev Bhargava, describe and analyse how religion is practised in Nepal today.
