Rassembler au-delà des clivages religieux ? Stratégie et processus d'adaptation d'un nouvel acteur sur la scène religieuse indienne.

Abstract : The Art of Living is a new religious movement whose popularity has not ceased growing in the whole Indian sub-continent, more particularly among the emergent Indian classes. Founded and carried out by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, the movement promotes a transconfessional spirituality, based on simplified yogic practices and a philosophical teaching of neo-vedantic inspiration. The guru intends to join together a community around a universal spirituality, beyond individual religious backgrounds. In order to understand the success encountered by the message of Sri Sri Ravi Shankar in India, the author focuses on the various strategies developed by the movement to reach a wide public and to maintain an ever expanding community.
