Throughout the history of Asian religions, self-cultivation has played a central role as a means of addressing and coping with the conditions of human existence in this world. There are multiple objectives that self-cultivation is typically concerned with. These can include the honing of moral virtues essential to one’s existence as a social being, the enhancement of health and well-being essential to living out one’s allotted lifespan, or the gaining of mystical experience by which one unites with the Divine or the Absolute. In this seminar three internationally active researchers will present data and analysis pertaining to self-cultivation as occurring in their respective fields of specialization. Collectively, their findings should provide an opportunity to understand the dynamics of Asian religions in their multiplicity.
