Nouvelles formes de mise en valeur d’attachements spirituels à l’environnement en Inde

Abstract : There is an increasing call for the spiritual dimension to be included in environmental policies. This article focuses on the way that spiritual attachments are valued and enrolled to defend the environmental cause. It analyzes specific settings that propose original assemblages with spirituality : the valedictory session of the Delhi Sustainable Developments Submit (DSDS) in 2015 which brought together religious leaders, the Pondicherry water festival in 2016 and the “water ceremony” organized for the Auroville’s fiftieth anniversary in 2018. These events are opened to plurality while leading to a dilution of the differences with the ambiguous definition of the world as “one family”/“Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam” in Sanskrit. The expression that was used in these meetings is also promoted by Hindu nationalists
