The Life of Hinduism is a compilation of essays by various scholars who have been studying Hinduism. I picked up this book both as a practicing Hindu and as a student of Indology. I am happy about reading a lot of essays in the book. The last section of the book could have been done away with. Having said that, I did learn a lot of new things about my own religion – for just like India, it is impossible to know a million ways of practicing Hinduism. All the essays are written by people who study Hinduism – making them an outside observer of the religion.

The Life of Hinduism brings together a series of essays―many recognized as classics in the field―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 Hinduism that is emerging in diasporic North America and with issues of identity that 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.
