Essential Hinduism

By (author) Rosen, Steven

As a religion, Hinduism remains one of the most elusive for many around the world. Its teachings, beliefs, practices, and history are reviewed here by an expert aiming to introduce readers to the world of Hinduism. While there are many forms of Hinduism, and offshoots as well, the complex nature of this faith makes it elusive to many. This straightforward overview, focusing on Vaishnavism - the most common form of Hinduism - is ideal for those who wish to learn more about this ancient tradition. Beginning with chapters about the foundations of Hinduism, the author clearly lays out what is otherwise a complicated history. Providing Hindu terms alongside English translations, he is able to bring the faith alive for readers unacquainted with its varieties and its tenets. Moving on to chapters about practices, including festivals, teachings, chanting, eating habits and more, this book brings Hinduism to life in vivid detail.
