Modern Hindu Thought
Description
About the Author

Arvind Sharma is Birks Professor of Comparative Religion at McGill University, Montreal, Canada. His many books include Classical Hindu Thought (OUP, 2000), Hinduism for our Times (OUP, 1995), The Philosophy of Religion: A Buddhist Perspective (OUP, 1995).

About the Book

In this book Arvind Sharma introduces contemporary readers to the works of some of the finest Hindu thinkers over the last two centuries. A fundamental religious and cultural corollary of British rule over India-and India's eventually successful struggle against it-was the cultural encounter between the two countries and the religious encounter between Christianity and Hinduism. This cultural and religious encounter, viewed through the lens of Hinduism, constitutes the theme of this book.

Selections from the writings of Rammohun Roy, Swami Vivekananda, Dayananda Sarasvati, Rabindranath Tagore, Mahatma Gandhi, Aurobindo Ghose, Jiddu Krishnamurty and other thinkers are presented with cameo accounts of their lives. According to Sharma, it is individual thinkers rather than philosophical systems that constitute the foci of modem Hindu thought.

Written in a lucid style, the book will be of interest to undergraduate and post-graduate students of religion, classical philosophy and Indian literature, as well as the general reader interested in Hinduism.

Testimonials
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.
