Notes
  • If religious therapy continues to attract people with psychic/​psychological pathologies, this is due to failures on the part of psychiatry: that is how some psychiatrists explained the significant frequentation of the dargāh of Ervady, where 28 mentally ill people perished in an accidental fire. The criticisms made by these psychiatrists reiterated deficiencies that were underscored by their colleagues who took part in the reform of psychiatry some decades ago. In order to adapt the practice of psychiatry to Indian sensibility, numerous studies were presented by these psychiatrists emphasizing the necessity of integrating Indian practices and concepts into their discipline. The present study, based on observation and analysis of a particular therapeutic shrine, will highlight the reasons for which patients have recourse to religious therapy, and will present some criticisms on the relevance of the Indian therapies chosen in order to ‘indianize' psychiatry.
