Understanding Hinduism
Understanding Hinduism
Description
From the Jacket:

Understanding Hinduism is a creative attempt to connect scholarly research with the daily life of Hindu devotees. It is a true introduction to the complexity of Hindu phenomena, discussing the basic meaning of "Hinduism" and surveying its origins, scriptures, rituals, doctrines and modern trends.

Its author is deeply in touch with the issues and concerns of modern Hindus and as a reformer seeks to bridge the chasm between objective scholarship and Hindu practice. Though affirming diversity he is not afraid to censure or commend, but does so in light of careful historical and sociological analysis. His focus is always on the practical life of devotees.

The author hopes this book will impact India's modern generation, which is adrift from its rich cultural heritage. Scholars will be alerted to practical Hindu concerns. Scholarly perspectives will stimulate and help the devotee.

About the Author:

Dayanand Bharati's origins are in Tamil Nadu, where he still spends most of his time. He is no armchair academic, rather a pilgrim and continues to travel extensively around India, interacting with fellow-pilgrims of manifold persuasions. He enjoys plats and gardening almost as much as books and reading.

Thank you for allowing me to shop in India from my desk in the United States!! I love your website! Om Shanthi
Florence Ambika, USA
I finally got my nearly $300 Meenakari earrings today. They were promised in 4-6 days but it took a week for them to be shipped. Then it was 4-6 days. When I saw them I had mixed feelings. They are cute but it took me a half hour to get them in my ears as the posts are really large in diameter. I had to use vaseline and force them through and then the screw on backs (a good thing) wouldn't line up. There seems to be something inside the screw on locks that act as a securing agent. Any way most of the things I've got from ExoticIndia were gifts and acceptable.
