This is a book on Hinduism designed to explain many South Asian practices, some not confined to Hindus only, that have very often been misunderstood in North America. The book contains essential information on standard Hindu sacraments and rituals, on dress codes, customs and festivals, on worship practices and sacred images. It provides a sampler of prayers, points for reflection and liturgical formulae. It notes peculiarities of emigre Hindu experience in the United States and Canada and incorporates insights from the author's experience as a Hindu chaplain.

The book has been written in response to requests for information from hospitals, ethnic squads in police forces, schools and boards of education, chaplains, social workers, and Hindus themselves. It will be helpful to students as well.

About the Author:

Sitansu S. Chakravarti taught Indian philosophy and religion for a number of years at the advanced undergraduate level in Calcutta. Subsequently, he was Associate Professor, and later Visiting Professor of Philosophy at Rajasthan University, India. Being well versed in both Western and Eastern traditions, he has combined them in contributions to professional journals and an encyclopaedia of world spirituality. He has also represented Hinduism in Canada at national and international forums.

TESTIMONIALS

Received the package this morning and must commend you on the packaging. I get a lot of things by mail, but you certainly deserve an award, or at least an accolade for the extreme care you took in packaging the books :-) Thanks!...
