About this item

Hinduism: The Basics introduces the rich diversity of the complex of Hindu traditions by exploring key elements such as: religious practices such as pilgrimage, meditation and life cycle rituals; the organisation of Hindu society into castes and related social justice issues; the spread of Hinduism around the world, the rise of Hindu nationalism and other challenges of modernity; sacred texts in both Sanskrit and in vernacular languages of South Asia; and Hindu worldviews including karma, reincarnation and ethics. Featuring a glossary, maps, timeline and list of key deities, this is an ideal introduction to the Hindu tradition for undergraduates and others new to the study of Hinduism.
