       religious traditions'especially those of the East'are 
       being commodified as never before. Imitated and rebranded 
       as 'new age' or 'spiritual,' they are marketed to secular

       the 'mystical' and 'exotic' East promising a path to 
       enlightenment and inner peace.In Buying Buddha, Selling 
       Rumi, Sophia Rose Arjana examines the appropriation and 
       sale of Buddhism, Hinduism, and Islam in the West today, 
       the role of mysticism and Orientalism in the religious 
       marketplace, and how the commodification of religion 
       impacts people's lives."--Back cover.
