The Establishment Of A Sakta-TraditionEtableringen af en Sakta-tradition
This article will focus primarily on how the adaption-process into a Danish environment has provided a local śākta-cult from Sri Lanka with a special narrative, and with symbols and text that it, most likely, would not have had if it were still in Sri Lanka. This is important with regards to understanding religion as a dynamic phenomenon, but also in relation to understanding how a tradition not only survives in a new setting but also expands in new environments.
