Religious History of Ancient Punjab

Sukhninder Kaur Dhillon (Author)
Synopsis Religious history of ancient Punjab is entirely an academic account of such a period of religious history of ancient Punjab vis-a-vis India where each religious tradition vied with each other for supremacy in the Indian mind. The pre-historic settlement and its rapid upward march; the emergence of Vedic traditions and brought up in the regional geography of Punjab, and finally meeting and mingling together yielded a mixture of Aryan and non Aryan cultural expansion as well as settlements in the ancient Punjab. This region finally became a base for the religio-cultural expansion of the Aryan and non-Aryan in the length and breadth of India. A host of minor religious sects and cults in addition to major entities too have made a reasonable place in this part of India for their development right from 6 to 10 centuries. A.D. Dr. S.K. Dhillon's tracing of the evolution, growth and decline of different traditions in the Punjab covers Buddhism, Jainism, Vaishnavism, Shaivism, Shaktism and Tantrism is a wonderful phenomena found in the history of the Indian civilization. How the major creative historical entities once dominated the cultural canvas of India and slowly leaving the canvas for the others; is really an interesting phenomena occurred in the religious history of India; which is rightly framed by Dr. Sukhninder Kaur Dhillon in her above cited work. This new addition dealing with the history of ancient religions will definitely provide enrich academic material for the readers.
