    Description

    Hindu View Of Life is a comprehensive look into the depths of Hinduism. It examines the origin, belief systems, rituals, and many other aspects of this religion. Presented in the form of four lectures, this book is very informative and engaging.

    Summary Of The Book

    Hindu View Of Life, originally published in 1926, introduces readers to the ways of Hindu life, rituals, beliefs, and customs.

    India is a very diverse country filled with a wide range of religions. Hinduism may seem one of the most confusing because of the thousands of gods and goddesses that are worshipped in their various forms. It also has myths and superstitions attached to it. The author takes readers into the depth of Hinduism, and showcases the unifying beliefs that exist amongst all ordinary men and women.

    Hindu View Of Life is divided into four lessons. The first is titled Religious Expressions: Its Nature And Content. It says that the word Hindu came into existence as the founders lived on the banks of River Indus, and invaders from other countries started calling them Hindus. The author also says that Hindus should not confine themselves into building temples and performing rites. Instead, all of Hinduism should strive to reach higher spiritual plane. Lecture two is Conflict Of Religions: The Hindu Attitude, and it says that Hinduism is a religion that has accepted all kinds of gods. It doesn’t believe in converting individuals, and lays emphasis on the fact that conduct is more important that belief. The next two lectures are Hindu Dharma I and II. 

    Hindu View Of Life uncovers the complexities of this religion. It shows that there is so much more to Hinduism that what is expressed by Indians on a daily basis. Infact, Radhakrishnan says that Hindu families irrespective of their differences in rituals, customs, and rites, are all guided by certain common beliefs. This book is very informative, and takes readers into the deepest aspects of one of the oldest religions of the world.

    The Best Introduction to Hinduism.

    Most of the Hindus celebrate many festivals but do not know the basics of Hinduism. It is neither taught at home, not at the temple, not at all in school. They are ignorant of the philosophy of Hinduism like Dharma, Karma and Moksha. Dr.S.Radhakrishnan, former President of India and a Great Philosopher,explains the basics of Hinduism in simple language. It is a great introduction to Hinduism. Every Hindu should read it.

    A brilliant piece of writing from master

    It is a wonderful experince to read this book. What makes this book most readable that it apeals to rational as well as devout. SRs depth of knowledge can be gauged by the ease with which he refers to a wide number of scriptures of different religions. A must read for all who wish to have a first hand experience of authours knowledge about Hindu society.

    Good Read. Short and sweet.

    Decent book. Short and sweet. Just small glimpses of what we as hindus follow and a good way to start.Doesn't talk on the hindu practises and what we have to do etc..

    Talks more on the general perspective as to who we are and what our practices could mean.

    Awesome

    If you are a Radhakrishnan fan then you will love it! If you arr not, then you will become one.

    The book manages to convince without forcing itself upon you... and thats quite a relief'!

    Its beautiful how the author brings the variety of belief systems (within Hinduism) together and gently binds them, without huddling them together or letting them go aloof!
