Description

A wholly original exposition of Hinduism, it focuses on Hindu religious psychology and behavior rather than the mythology, dogmas, and rituals as found in the religious texts. General readers who want to understand Hinduism will appreciate Chaudhuri's book for the liveliness and clarity of its picture of Hindu life. Scholars will welcome it for the author's widely admired authority. The author is a born writer. He makes delightful reading, always thought-provoking; imperative to anyone who wants to understand India.
