Provides a comparative analysis of the Hindu, Jain and Buddhist traditions and their history in relation to questions of power, legitimacy, leadership and asceticism throughout contemporary Asia. This book shows that asceticism in these traditions is conceived not only as a means of world-renunciation but also as a means of world-transformation.
