Hinduism is the oldest living religion in the world and is unique in its tolerance of other religions. It offers different spiritual paths to persons of different aptitudes, and places emphasis on individual spiritual experience. Yet, in view of its free thinking and lack of compulsion, educated Hindus of today and Hindus living abroad know very little of their religion. There is, therefore, a great need for a simple but comprehensive book on the subject. Likewise, tourists visiting India are often in search of a concise book which will help them understand the Hindu religion and guide them on their visits to Hindu temples and monuments. Shakunthala Jaggannathan has written this book to explain Hinduism to Indians and to visitors from abroad, so that the urban Indian can comprehend the roots of his civilisation, and the tourist can comprehend the various aspects of Hinduism and relate them to what he sees around him in India.concepts such as Karma, Dharma and reincarnation are explained in a simplified form. Copiously illustrated, HINDUISM, AN INTRODUCTION, covers the various aspects of Hinduism, its main scriptures, tenets and beliefs, and its social and cultural ethos. Printed Pages: 92.
