Summary
"Hinduism is not only a religious belief, it is also a philosophy based upon certain key concepts. Most of these either originated, or were fully articulated, during the classical period from the fourth century B.C. to the tenth century. In this concise and lucid book, Arvind Sharma introduces contemporary readers to the texts and ideas crystallized during this period and explains their contemporary relevance." "This book is divided into sections dealing with key concepts, such as karma, dharma, maya, moksa and varna; the main gods and goddesses of the Hindu pantheon, Devi, Siva, Brahma, Visnu; and texts such as the Purusarthas and Vedas. It also deals with different systems of yoga: Jnana-yoga, Bhakti-yoga, and Karma-yoga."--Jacket
