On transmodernity

"Traditions carry much beauty within themselves, but a great deal of problems comes from tradition. Normally, traditions are not something static. They are constantly reinvented, so to say. In fact, a tradition stays a tradition by reinventing itself. If it doesn’t reinvent itself, it can become a custom and a custom can become very oppressive." - Ziauddin Sardar  in his conversation with the Halal Monk.
