Product Description

It appears that Hinduism is fast losing its relevance except for the limited purpose of glorification of the ancient past. The modern concept of secularism has debarred the study of ancient Hindu texts in the formal system of primary and secondary education. The English-speaking historians have elbowed out the Sanskrit scholars, and Hinduism is presently taught as the history of an ancient civilization. A large percentage of Hindus and non-Hindus, with a scientific bent of mind, is curious to know about Hinduism. However, no literature defining the core concepts of Hinduism is readily available. The priestly class has arisen to fill the void by promoting Hinduism as a ritualistic religion. Most of the Hindus are practising these rituals out of sheer respect for their traditions.

This book is an endeavour to compile the various concepts that broadly define Hinduism. The ancient Hindu texts and Upanishads have been explained succinctly without any lengthy commentary. The book makes no effort to reconcile the various Hindu philosophies and it is left to the readers to make their interpretations. There are no exaggerations of any sort and there is no attempt to build logic to influence the reader in any way. At the end of each chapter there are multiple-choice questions on the core concepts
