Takhellambam Ilabanta Singh

Abstract: Manipur is situated in the North - Eastern corner of India. Manipur is the meeting place of the two civilizations of India and Burma and homeland of a large number of cultural and ethnic groups with different languages, religions and customs. She accepted the aspect of Indian culture and transmitted them to Burma, China and other Asiatic countries. The land is a meeting point of Tibeto - Burman tribal community, the Chins and the Kachin originating from South - China and the Indo - Aryan Hindus of the Indo - Gangetic plains. The state had distinct political status ruled by the powerful Ningthouja dynasty. The expansion of the Indian culture to the North - East part of India was mainly due to commercial activities and the visit of a large number of religious missionaries to spread the spiritual truth. In addition to these, the ambitious and discontented members of the royal families and nobility who were keen to regain their position went to neighboring countries to acquire help. The spread of Aryan culture in Manipur was largely due to the settlement of the Brahmins. The present study will highlight the changes of socio - religious life among Manipuri Hindus during the 17th & 18th Century.
