Synopsis

Hinduism by Rasamandala Das

This general introduction to Hinduism makes a valuable information resource for KS3 and 4 Religious Education students. Written by a Hindu with wide experience of teaching and writing about Hinduism for children, it covers the foundation and history of Hinduism. It continues by exploring the beliefs, teachings and practices of modern Hinduism, which includes a look at sacred texts and places of worship. The final chapters focus on Hinduism and society, and its role in the modern world. A special feature of the book is the 'in our own words' panels in which practising Hindus give a personal perspective on being a Hindu today. There are numerous panels that give more detailed information on specific aspects such as types of worship and mantras, as well as quoting important texts. Imaginatively chosen photos with detailed captions extend the range of information presented. A map shows the distribution of believers around the world. An historical timeline, glossary and index all contribute to making this a highly engaging and accessible source of information and thus an essential work of reference for the 11-14 age range.
