Living Faith: Windows into the Sacred Life of India by Dinesh Khanna and Pico Iyer



This splendid volume of eye-filling photos portrays the daily devotional rhythms of Indian life—the icons, rituals, riotous colors, impenetrable silences, irreconcilable contradictions, and ambient mystery of a subcontinent. In so doing, it conveys, in the phrasing of author Pico Iyer, "what India does, at its best: namely, to take individual moments of worship, private acts of devotion—the soul in solitary colloquy with its God—and somehow bind them into the larger fabric of society and life."
