EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

There are very few brief and comprehensive expositions of the universal tenets of Hinduism available today, this book “The Primer of Hinduism” is to be welcomed as ably fulfilling the need in this respect. Both the modern Hindu who is brought up in an un-Hindu environment, and the followers of other faiths who want an authentic exposition of Hinduism is a short compass, would find this to be the book most helpful to satisfy their need. While the author calls the book a Primer, it is much more than that. It touches briefly on all the fundamental doctrines of Hindu religion and philosophy, and can very well form the basis of a detailed exposition of it suited to the needs of students at different levels of understanding.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This is a discerning and lucid articulation of Hindu belief and practice. Professor Rambachan combines insight born out of his own devotion with mastery of relevant texts and traditions to create a gem of a book. He describes worship in its familial and temple contexts, holding before the reader the aim of worship as unbroken awareness of God in all of life. This awareness intensifies and expands the religious and moral meaning of life, death, and human action, Dharma, moksa and rebirth, and other classical Hindu teachings, are set forth with an elegance of style and economy of words. Rambachan is especially attentive to common misunderstandings of Hindu teachings. He shows how Hinduism avoids determinism, encourages freedom from ignorance and for joyful celebration of life, and issues forth in compassionate concern for others. The final chapter, 'A Hindu Looks at Jesus', will be of special value for Hindu-Christian dialogue. It is difficult to imagine a more accessible, concise and helpful introduction to the profound themes of Hinduism.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Trick-or-treating. Flower girls. Bedtime stories. Bar and bat mitvah. In a nation of increasing ethnic, familial, and technological complexity, the patterns of children's lives both persist and evolve. This book considers how such events shape identity and transmit cultural norms, asking such questions as: * How do immigrant families negotiate between old traditions and new? * What does it mean when children engage in ritual insults and sick jokes? * How does playing with dolls reflect and construct feelings of racial identity? * Whatever happened to the practice of going to the Saturday matinee to see a Western? * What does it mean for a child to be (in the words of one bride) "flower-girl material"? How does that role cement a girl's bond to her family and initiate her into society? * What is the function of masks and costumes, and why do children yearn for these accoutrements of disguise? Rituals and Patterns in Children's Lives suggests the manifold ways in which America's children come to know their society and themselves.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

A re-reading of the Hindu classic, the Bhagavad Gita, a dialogue between Prince Arjuna and his charioteer Lord Krishna. This episode which occurs in the Sanskrit epic, The Mahabharata, is often read for its own sake and given the status of a holy scripture by Hindus. Reviews: "This is a brilliant book that I recommend wholeheartedly. It picks a central thought from each of the Bhagavad Gita's 18 chapters and uses that to communicate deep insights about life and meaning. People who wish to understand the Gita or other Vedic texts will love it, and it will also be useful to those who are experts." Professor Subhash Kak, Oklahoma State University, Stillwater, OK "... Srinivasan's commentary is itself a gem. It combines an accessible, easy style of writing with a rigorous translation by a master of the Sanskrit language (and also includes the original Sanskrit text itself, for those with the ability to follow along and to come to their own conclusions regarding its meaning and import). Including references to earlier interpretations within the Hindu tradition, this work stands in a distinguished lineage of scriptural commentary.... I recommend it highly!" Professor Jeffery Long, Elizabethtown College, PA "This modest volume succeeds admirably in raising the right questions and pointing to insightful answers." Swami Tyagananda, Sri Ramakrishna Vedanta Society, Boston and Hindu Chaplain at MIT and Harvard. "Readers will surely benefit from a study of the book. There is an appendix to the book, containing the text of some earlier publications of the author. The book should certainly be prescribed reading for students, especially the children of non-resident Indians living outside India." Vedanta Kesari; May 2016
