Hindu: Joy of Life

 
Utpal K Banerjee (Author)
Synopsis Hindu: Joy of Life is an attempt to simplify the tenets of an age old religion and to demystify it for the reader of today. Utpal K Banerjee delves into the past to bring understanding to the present. This book is a quest to discover the enduring vitality that exists in the Hindu way of life. It celebrates a great tradition; it salutes its past and looks forward to the spread of Hinduism across the oceans. Beginning with the Vedic deities the sun, moon, fire and storm, Banerjee weaves his narration through a time when the universe was devoid of a beginning and when noble thoughts were born. The tale moves on to great Indian philosophies and literature, to the visual and performing arts. This book is a complete guide to the Hindu way of life. Everywhere it is the Hindu culture and customs that are applauded. Religion and ritual come together to bring the concepts of Hinduism to the fore. In the words of the author: Hinduism is a religious and cultural tradition, where the enormous variety of belief and practice can ultimately be interpreted as a common view of the world. The mystery and the mystique of this religion make it special, bringing joy to its believers.
