Book Title: A Concise Encyclopedia of Hinduism

Author: Swami Harshananda

Book Description:

Hinduism is a way of life that is practiced by a billion plus people on this planet. Yet, misconceptions abound (particularly in the West) as media portrayals often don’t go beyond the “cow, caste, and curry” syndrome. I have chosen this encyclopedia of Hinduism so readers can benefit from a deeper understanding of the profound wisdom contained in the world’s oldest religion.
