Description

Preface

Many want to know what Hinduism is. Many are astonished to hear that Hinduism has no particular creed. Indeed. Hinduism is hard to define. Hinduism is a system which comprises within its fold an infinite variety of thoughts. In these pages we have made an attempt to give a bird's-eye view of Hinduism with extracts from the speeches and writings of one who may be said to be the best exponent of Hinduism in modern India. The excerpts have been culled from different places, arranged with an eye to the sequence of topics and woven into a systematic whole. We believe they will give some idea of Hinduism to those who have no time to read larger volumes.

I have purchased several items from Exotic India: Bronze and wood statues, books and apparel. I have been very pleased with all the items. Their delivery is prompt, packaging very secure and the price reasonable.

Fotis, Greece
I've just received the shawl and love it already!! Thank you so much,
Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
