Description
Encyclopedia of Hinduism, a volume from the new Encyclopedia of World Religions series, examines the living faith of this religion and its historical and social background. Aimed at the high school and junior college student, as well as the layperson, this accessible reference explores the vast world of Hinduism, which emerged from prehistory and lives today in astonishing variety.With approximately 700 A-to-Z entries, Encyclopedia of Hinduism focuses on the most significant groups within this religion, noteworthy teachers and their contributions, the religions and cultural movements that enriched its history, and the diaspora of Hindu thought and practice around the world. Two major religious traditions that sprang from Hindu influence, Jainism and Sikhism, also have many entries. A comprehensive introduction that provides an overview of the tradition, a chronology, a bibliography, an index, and black-and-white photographs complete this volume.Entries include:
