Abstract This book sheds light on how ancient philosophies and practices related to sacred natural sites are relevant to conventional protected areas and conservation in Asia today. In doing so it contributes to the field of conservation practice and interdisciplinary research on sacred natural sites that draws from the social and natural sciences. This field is gaining in popularity as testified by an increased number of peer reviewed and professional publications and the uptake of the topic in course curricula and conservation initiatives (see preface).
