This text focuses on the emergence and development of the Christian ashram. The term "ashram" is defined as a spontaneous community of seekers or disciples gathered around a spiritual leader, called a guru, who points a way toward salvation. The book classifies Christian ashrams as a new religious movement that seeks to amalgamate elements of traditional Christianity and traditional Hinduism in contemporary Indian society.
