Description

This Volume attempts to survey all the important literature connected with Hinduism from the ancient times to the present day.



This comprehensive book on Hinduism discusses all the important literature connected with it. The emphasis is on moral and spiritual teachings of the sacred books including Vedas, Brahmans, Arayankas, Upanisads, Dharmasastra, the two epics - Ramayana and Mahabharata, the Bhagwad Gita, Dharmasutras, Agamas, Puranas and the various writings of Gurus and Bhaktas in which the different sects of Hindus have some faith and the two books in pithy form known as Panchtantra and Hitopadesa.



The book presents the changes which were brought into Hindu religion during the middle ages to offset the attacks made by two other Indian religious sects Jainism and Buddhism and later on by Islam. It also refers to the various social reforms during the British period in the Indian Society.
