This new collection brings together the sacred scriptures of the
Hindu tradition to provide readers with a comprehensive overview of
the classical form of one of the world's oldest existing religions.
Selections from the Vedas, the Upanisads, the Bhagvagad Gita and
many more cover topics such as creation, sacrifice, birth, marriage
and death and tell the stories of the great Hindu gods. But over
the last two hundred years reformed, anti and radical versions of
Hinduism have emerged which question the laws, traditions and even
the category of Hinduism itself.
Uniquely, this reader juxtaposes the classic scriptures with the
works of reformers and radicals to illuminate the new face of
contemporary Hinduism. With an introduction to each reading from
editor Deepak Sarma, this reader is suitable for Hinduism courses
of all levels.
