The reference provides an overview of the Hindu religious tradition and describes the essence of the Hindu vision of reality.

Provides a historical and analytical discussion of Hindu mythology, art, rituals, and social structure; gives extended portraits of important Hindu thinkers and saints; offers a fuller picture of the role of women in the Hindu religious tradition; shows how the concepts of Dharama and Moksha conflict with one another and how the Hindu tradition insists upon both concepts as essential in fulfilling human destiny.

A valuable reference for courses in Asian Religion, Theology, and Asian Philosophy.
