About Book :
Hinduism is both a civilization and a congregation of religions; it has neither a beginning, founder, nor a central authority, hierarchy, or organization. Because it integrates a variety of elements, Hinduism constitutes a complex but largely continuous whole. It is a composite of diverse doctrines, cults, and ways of life. "The Essence of Hinduism" explains what is generally referred to as "HINDUISM" both concisely and meaningfully. It also provides readers with the fundamentals of Hindu philosophy in a historical context. With this background, readers can adapt their understanding of Hinduism to the new values and conditions that have developed through mass education and industrialization
