Description: The Life of Hinduism collects a series of essays that present Hinduism as a vibrant, truly "lived" religion. Celebrating the diversity for which Hinduism is known, this volume begins its journey in the "new India" of Bangalore, India's Silicon Valley, where global connections and local traditions rub shoulders daily. Readers are then offered a glimpse into the multifaceted world of Hindu worship, life-cycle rites, festivals, performances, gurus, and castes. The book's final sections deal with the issues of identity that today face Hindus in India and around the world: militancy versus tolerance and the struggle between owning one's own religion and sharing it with others.
