Sample Book Insights:

#1 My Hinduism is a lived faith; it is a Hinduism of experience and upbringing, a Hinduism of observation and conversation. It is not anchored in deep religious study, but I have always been curious about ancient Indian traditions and beliefs.

#2 Hinduism is the name that foreigners first applied to the indigenous religion of India. It encompasses an eclectic range of beliefs and practices, from pantheism to agnosticism and from faith in reincarnation to the caste system. But none of these constitutes an obligatory credo for a Hindu.

#3 I am a Hindu because I believe in the ancient genius of my own people. I am proud of the history of my faith in my own land, and I am reaffirmed in this allegiance by the Harvard scholar Diana Eck writing of the sacred geography of India.

#4 Hinduism is a religion that allows its followers to be astika (pious) or nastika (impious). The terms relate more to orthopraxy than orthodoxy, but action proceeds from convictions.
