Generalità

Dopo aver conseguito la laurea in Lettere classiche nel 1969 e la specializzazione in Lingua sanscrita nel 1971 presso la Oxford University, Alexis Sanderson trascorse sei anni in Kashmir, regione settentrionale del subcontinente indiano, dove fu allievo di un guru śaiva kaśmiro.

Successivamente, dal 1977 al 1992, è stato docente di sanscrito e ricercatore emerito presso il Wolfson College di Oxford. Attualmente è presidente, presso questa stessa Università, della cattedra di Eastern Religion and Ethics.[1]

I suoi campi di interesse riguardano soprattutto i movimenti religiosi śaiva, la loro influenza sulle correnti religiose vaiṣṇava e il Buddhismo tantra nel Sud-Asia e Sud-est asiatico.[1]
