Hong Kong in Reenchantment: A Case Study of the New Religious Discourse The proliferation of new religious cults in Hong Kong in the recent two decades displays a paradoxical picture. On the one hand, it signifies the emergence of a societal tide of reenchantment. On the other hand, it appears to embody vast disenchanted dispositions. This study explores the empirical sacred constitution of one of the new religious cults in Hong Kong, so as to arrive at a substantive understanding of the elusive phenomenon of the new religious discourse and its implications for the social reality. In the course of this study, it is intriguing to find that the new sacred order of the case chosen, the Lingsu Exo-Esoterics, manifests itself as above all a model of the secular realities of the Hong Kong society.
