One of the worlds most ancient religious traditions, Hinduism is the dominant faith of India and, through Indias growing expatriate community, an increasingly familiar spiritual force in the West. Having no single founder, creed, teacher or prophet acknowledged by all as central to the religion, and no single holy book that is universally acclaimed as being of primary importance, Hinduism is fascinatingly complex.

It is simultaneously a religion, a culture and a way of life, and in all these aspects it is richly diverse. Understanding Hinduism is an accessible and beautifully illustrated introduction to the key themes of Hinduism, from its many Gods and Goddesses, including Vishnu, Shiva And Lakshmi- its ancient rituals and ceremonies- its sacred architecture- its epic poetry- Karma And Rebirth- the ways to liberation that influenced Buddhism, to the inspiring teachers and Gurus.

The course of Hinduism is traced from its origins in the civilizations of the Indus River region.
