Product Overview

Hinduism describes the religious beliefs and practices of up to a billion people, most of whom live in India. Yet Hinduism is a religion which lacks a set of core beliefs. It has no founder, no single scripture nor any central organization, and Hindus may be atheists, polytheists and monotheists. The sheer diversity of practices and beliefs across social groups and regions have led some to claim that the term 'Hindu' is almost meaningless.
What do Hindus Believe? argues that there are central themes in this diversity, which can be traced back thousands of years and yet are subpart of today's beliefs and practices. The mixture of the ancient and the modern, and the ability to adapt and reinvigorate tradition, are what give Hinduism its remarkable resilience, and help explain why it remains crucial to understanding modern India and its global diaspora.
