About book :

Hindu View Of Life, originally published in 1926, introduces readers to the ways of Hindu life, rituals, beliefs, and customs. India is a very diverse country filled with a wide range of religions. Hinduism may seem one of the most confusing because of the thousands of gods and goddesses that are worshipped in their various forms. It also has myths and superstitions attached to it. The author takes readers into the depth of Hinduism, and showcases the unifying beliefs that exist amongst all ordinary men and women.Hindu View Of Life uncovers the complexities of this religion. It shows that there is so much more to Hinduism that what is expressed by Indians on a daily basis. Infact, Radhakrishnan says that Hindu families irrespective of their differences in rituals, customs, and rites, are all guided by certain common beliefs. This book is very informative, and takes readers into the deepest aspects of one of the oldest religions of the world.
