Rites of reverence, ways of worship: The bodhi tree in Bodhgayâ as a material object and focus of devotion

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review

    Abstract

    The focus is on ritual activities beneath the bodhi tree now existing in Bodhgayâ, India. The dynamic interaction between locally lived religions, long-distance pilgrimage and global tourism has increasingly become tangible here, where a single tree has become the focal point of various narrative traditions, ritual gestures and material-emotional culture.
