The book that is now in your hands is expected to remedy this problem to a considerable extent. The subjects dealt with are: religion, philosophy, mythology, rituals, scriptural works, festivals and pilgrim centres, astrology, biographies of religious personalities, iconography, temples and religious institutions.

Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism with are closely allied to Hinduism have also been dealt with briefly. Short biographical notes of the better known ideologists have been added at the end as appendices. It is earnestly hoped that the students of Hinduism will find this work useful in the right spirit.

About the Author:

Swami Harshananda is a senior monk of the Ramakrishna Order. Initiated into spiritual life by Swami Virajananda, the sixth president of the Ramakrishna Order, he joined the Bangalore branch of the Ramakrishna Math in early 1954.

Customer Reviews of Concise Encyclopaedia of Hinduism (3 vols)
Review by Dr.S.P.Padma Prasad: Wednesday 23 July, 2014
I have browsed through these volumes. it is a mammoth work, fruit of a dedicated missionary zeal. The fourth volume,a supplementary one has also come out recently. In total, this 4 volume set, has about 2200 pages, We can find basic information about almost all concepts related,either directly,or distantly ,with Hinduism.This work is the result of 32 years of labour. It contains so many pictures and photographs also. there is perhaps the largest chapter on 'Hindu Culture' that runs to about 62 pages.
Even though it is authored by a devoted Hindu monk, the presentation is highly objective, without any exaggeration of any sort.

We are thankful to the author and also to those, who helped financially and technically in bringing out htis book in such a nice manner.
