Hinduism: A Way of Life

Sitansu S. Chakravarti (Author)

This is the book of 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 émigré Hindu experience in the United State and Canada and incorporates insight from the author's experience as a Hindu chaplain. The most substantial and interesting portions of the book are those where Dr. Chakravarti offers in brief compass his studied reflections on Hindu philosophy, ethics and spirituality. The glossary is also a significant section of the book.

The book has been written in response to request 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.
