A very well written account of this the world's oldest religion. The author has tried to explain it's various epochs, including it's various reformatory phases the most important being the emergence of Vaishnavism and the relevance of Tantra which is one of it's most misunderstood and abused aspects. I was pleasantly surprised by the author's smooth flowing and rich prose and his rendition of this most complex of studies.

This now-classic book provides a description and interpretation of Hinduism, focusing particularly on the religious psychology and behavior of Hindus. Rejecting familiar assumptions about early Hinduism, Chaudhuri provides illuminating insights into its formative influences and examines temple and image worship as well as the three major cults of Siva, Krishna, and the Mother Goddess.
