RENNER Studies on New Religions is an initiative supported by the Danish Research Council for the Humanities. The series was established to publish books on alternative spiritual movements from a wide range of perspectives. The books will appeal to an international readership of scholars, students, and professionals in the study of religion, theology, the arts, and the social sciences. It is hoped that this series will provide a proper context for scientific exchange between these often competing disciplines.

Simply stated, the authorAes main contention is that the two onewo religions under scrutiny - TM and ISKCON - are, despite their common rootedness in Vedic Hinduism, fundamentally opposed to each other. As presented here, they are fundamentally opposed particularly in their attitudes toward modern Western science, which world-affirming TM celebrates and would assimilate ...and world-denying ISKCON rejects as an illusion...in sum this book is both instructive and provocative - C.
