Hinduism is perhaps the oldest of the world's major religions and makes for fascinating study. This lavishly illustrated book explores the rich historical and cultural development of its diverse traditions, from its distant Indian roots to its vibrant application in the present, global context. The first section examines the origins of Hinduism, and asks the intriguing question: who founded the tradition? It explores in depth the diverse holy texts and their profound teachings about the self, the law of karma, and the perpetual cycle of birth and death. The second section focuses on spiritual practices - those activities that nurture faith, wisdom and communion with the Supreme. These chapters explain the four main paths of action, knowledge, meditation and devotion, the colourful array of Hindu deities, and practices that celebrate sacred time and place. The final section analyses ways in which Hindus engage with this world, and how their spirituality has been expressed and organised. It investigates Hindu society, its culture and arts, and the ways in which various leaders and movements have sought to perpetuate its teachings, right up to the present day. Stunningly illustrated with over 470 beautiful images, this comprehensive book provides a highly readable introduction. Detailed yet easily accessible, it provides the perfect reference for anyone wishing to further explore the compelling faith and culture that is Hinduism.

Hindu Goddesses

Hindu Goddesses is a valuable sourcebook and reference work for students and scholars of Hindu goddesses and of Hinduism in general. Each goddess is dealt with as an independent deity with a coherent mythology, theology and, in some cases, cult of her own. Within the complex, diverse, and rich goddess traditions of Hinduism, one can find suggestions of nearly every important theme in the Hindu religion. In many ways, this book is as much a study of the Hindu tradition itself as it is a study of one aspect of that tradition. No other living religious tradition has displayed such an ancient, continuous, and diverse history of goddess worship.

Among Library Journal's picks of the most important reference works of the millennium - with the Encyclopedia Judaica and the New Catholic Encyclopedia - Mircea Eliade's Encyclopedia of Religion won the American Library Associations' Dartmouth Medal in 1988 and is widely regarded as the standard reference work in the field. This second edition, which is intended to reflect both changes in academia and in the world since 1987, includes almost all of the 2,750 original entries - many heavily updated - as well as approximately 600 entirely new articles. Preserving the best of Eliade's cross-cultural approach, while emphasizing religion's role within everyday life and as a unique experience from culture to culture, this new edition is the definitive work in the field for the 21st century. An international team of scholars and contributors have reviewed, revised and added to every word of the classic work, making it relevant to the questions and interests of all researchers. The result is an essential purchase for libraries of all kinds.
