Description

There are more than one billion Hindus in the world but very little seems to be understood about this gigantic, peaceful faith. Followers have not only built and sustained the world's largest democracy but also one of the greatest philosophical streams in the world, continuously, for more than 3,000 years. So what makes a Hindu? Why is so little heard from the real practitioners of the everyday faith? Why does it never go beyond cliches? This is a practitioner's guide, a journey to very simply and instinctively understand what the Hindu message is, where it stands in the Clash of Civilizations between Islam and Christianity and why the Hindu way could yet be the path for plurality and progress in the 21st century.
