Harmonious spiritual practices in Malaysia

THERE is much beauty and commonality in the diverse religious traditions that Malaysians devote themselves to. Iranian photojournalist Nafise Motlaq captures this in her book A Given Path: Harmonious Spiritual Practices in Malaysia.

Nafise, who has been living in Malaysia since 2005 and is currently a PhD student at a local university, offers more than 100 photographs in her book. The quietly evocative pictures record the details and religious significance of – and, in several instances, similarities between – Muslim, Christian, Buddhist and Hindu rituals.

Her book, and an exhibition of the same name, was launched on Malaysia Day by Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir in Kuala Lumpur. Priced at RM55, A Given Path is available online and is expected to be in major bookstores in the Klang Valley from November.
