Lucidly written, and academically sound, this significant new study is a stunning exploration of faith and culture - a 'must' for every individual who seeks an essential spiritual understanding of life in this fast-moving and changing world.

This life-transforming book investigates the way mysterious Asian terms like dharma (duty) brahman (the ultimate God) and atman (the true 'self') are being interpreted in the west. The astonishing world of gurus is investigated, and the various yogic practices are scrutinised.

Karma 'n' Chips examines the liberating innovations being made to arcane beliefs and devotional rites carried far from their cultural roots by waves of Asian immigrants. It vigorously exposes the common ground of key concepts in the Christian and Hindu faiths revealing startling similarities and contrasting essential differences.

From the universal to the deeply personal, it vibrantly explores how an exchange and development of ideas is slowly evolving into a fresh contextualisation of spirituality, for the tangible benefit both of the host country and of the immigrant culture. Astounding stories and fascinating examples abound on this pilgrimage into the very heart of divinity.
