Book in Progress: The Soul of a Little Red Dot: Placing Hindu-based Spiritual Movements in Singapore
PAGE – 4 ============
!! %!Based on almost ten years of travel and research in Singapore, ÒSoul of a Little Red Dot,Ó considers spirituality not only as practiced by the many guru-centered movements but also as an unacknowledged aspect of the landscape of the city itself. The PeopleÕs Action Party which has ruled Singapore since Independence, took the rare opportunity to tear, down and rebuild much of Singapore, both physically and affectively, remolding not only the landscape but citizens into a well-ordered and wildly successful nation. This new creation has the feel of a ÒsecularÓ cosmos into which all else must fitÑ including the many yoga, meditation, guru-centered movements which exist in the interstates between the formally recognized Religions with their obviously sacred sites and the many clubs and social organizations in the city. Concerned with the scruffy lines between sacred and secular, business and spirituality, the state and cosmology, Little Red Dot introduces Singapore as both a unique case of urban religiosity and yet, as some have argued, Òwhere the urbanized world is headedÓ for those nationsÑespecially in southeast and east AsiaÑemerging from an avowedly secular politic.
