The Essentials of Hinduism


by Swami BhaskaranandaA comprehensive overview of the world’s oldest religion.Editorial reviews:”Swami Bhaskarananda has written a compact, yet amazingly comprehensive treatment of the essentials of the Hindu view of life, emphasizing the very things one wishes most to know about when first approaching this complicated, and many-sided subject. While there is no lack of books on Hinduism, many are ill-suited to beginners because they do not adequately explain basic concepts. Swamiji’s stlye is remarkable for its directness and lucidity, fresh and devoid of cliches to an extent that is truly rare nowadays.” Walter Maurer, Professor of Sanskrit, University of Hawaii.”While I have taught an introductory Asian Religions course for some twenty years, I have never been able to find such a helpful work. I shall recommend it enthusiastically for use by our college students.” Rev James Roberts, Catholic priest and professor, Religious Studies, Vancouver.
