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 always enjoyed browsing through the website. I was recently in south India, and was amazed to note that the bronze statues made in Kumbakonam and Thanjavur had similar pricing as Exotic India.
