Details: Product Description Updated autumn 2019. This lavishly illustrated book explores the rich historical and cultural development of Hinduism's diverse traditions, from its distant Indian roots to its vibrant application in the present, global context. The first section examines the origins of Hinduism, exploring in depth the various holy texts and their profound teachings about the self, the law of karma, and the perpetual cycle of birth and death. The second section focuses on spiritual practices, explaining the four main paths, and the colourful array of Hindu deities and practices that celebrate sacred time and place. The final part of the book analyses Hindu society, its culture and arts, and the ways in which the leaders and movements have sought to perpetuate its teachings up to the present day. About the Author Rasamandala Das practises the Vaishnava tradition and holds an MA in Religious Education from Warwick University. He runs an educational consultancy in Oxford, and is co-director of ISKCON Educational Services (the UK's largest provider of educational resources on Hinduism). He has also been commissioned by the Krishna Avanti School (the first Hindu voluntary-aided school in the UK) to help write the Religious Education Syllabus.
