In summary this chapter will show in detail how social conflict and power struggle between structural different societies created the conditions for fundamental institutional and interactional changes. Out of this clash evolved new religio-cultural institutions, interaction and discourses expressed in the Tantras. Integral to and tightly woven into this evolution of discourses and institutions was the emergence of new Tantric social identities and communities.
Modern readers may think that religious conflicts are only about rituals, rites, ceremonies, customs, behavioural restraints, consecration, legitimisation, what gods to worship, sectarianism and orthodoxy. On the contrary, this goes to the core of the social fabric. Religion and culture were hard to distinguish in pre-modern societies. What is at stake are fundamental issues like peoples ‘ social identity (who am I, to whom do I belong, what makes me different from other groups), their value and moral system, their sense of justice, who the local authorities and role models are, the establishment of social hierarchies.
