-- This guide provides accurate information from a recognized scholar of Hinduism -- no prior knowledge required.
-- A great supplement for students, travelers or those with a healthy curiosity about the roots and practices of a faith different from their own.
Nearly 80 percent of India's population practice Hinduism. Large Hindu communities also practice outside of India -- Indonesia, Southeast Asia and notably Nepal where Hinduism is the official state religion. Hindu followers have also greatly increased in the U.S. since many immigrants from India have come to live in this country -- estimates currently range to well over a million. The Pocket Idiot's Guide "RM" to Hinduism clearly explains for its reader the complex myth and tenants inherent in Hinduism's rich pantheon (Shiva, Krishna, Vishnu and Brahma) and literature (Vedas). Diverse Hindu holidays and festivals marking the six seasons of the Hindu calendar (spring, summer, monsoons, autumn, winter, frosty) are categorically presented along with important concepts in its aims and practice like dharma, karma and three rituals (nitya, naimittika, kamya). Closing chapters will discuss Hinduism as a national movement and its role as global faith in the 21st century.
