Hindu Religion and Ethics with an Introduction

 
M.C. Joshi (Author)
Synopsis The book discusses in length the myths, beliefs, systems, traditions, rites, rituals, ceremonials, thought, scriptures and philosophies of Hinduism. The book would prove to be useful to all those who want to understand the basic nature of Hinduism. The religion based on the Vedas, the Sanatoria Dharma, or Vaidika Dharma is the oldest oflivingreligions, and stands unrivalled in the depth and splendour of its philosophy, while it yields to none in the purity of its ethical teachings, and in the flexibility and varied adaptations of its rites and ceremonies. Of undesirable antiquity it has grown through the ages in its present forum. The present volume discusses in length the myths, beliefs, systems, traditions, rites, rituals, ceremonials, thought, scriptures and philosophies of Hinduism. Divided into three parts and eleven chapters, the book begins with a learned introduction defining Sanatana Dharma. In its various chapters, the authors have tried to explain the complex character and beliefs of Hinduism supported by extracts from Sanskrit scriptures and simple interpretations. The text discusses concepts like 'the One' (the Brahman), manifest and unmanifest, karma, rebirth, purity, rites, four-stages of life, caste-system and related issues in a lucid manner. The book would prove to be useful to all those who want to understand the basic nature of Hinduism. It is hoped that the book would be welcomed in India and outside, by scholars, students and common readers.
