About the Author

Arvind Sharna was born in Varanasi, India. He earned a B.A. in History, Economics, and Sanskrit from Allahabad University in 1958 and continued his interests in economics at Syracuse University, earning an M.A. in 1970. Pursuing a life-long interest in comparative religion, Dr. Sharma gained an M.T.S. in 1974 and then a Ph.D. in Sanskrit and Indian Studies from Harvard University in 1978. He was the first Infinity Foundation Visiting Professor of Indic Studies at Harvard University and succeeded Wilfred Cantwell Smith to the Birks Chair of Comparative Religion at McGill University in Montreal, Canada. He has published over fifty books and five hundred articles in the fields of comparative religion, Hinduism, Indian philosophy and ethics, and the role of women in religion. Often cited as an authority on Hinduism, amongst his most noteworthy publications are The Hindu Gita: Ancient and Classical Interpretations of the Bhagavadgita (1986), The Experiential Dimension of Advaita Vedanta (1993), Our Religions: The Seven World Religions Introduced by Preeminent Scholars from Each Tradition (1994), and The Study of Hinduism (2003).

Format: Paperback
Arvid Sharma's A GUIDE TO HINDU SPIRITUALITY comes from a renowned scholar of Hinduism and provides a distillation of the essence and concepts of Hindu spirituality. From his outline of major schools of Hinduism to discussions and overviews of key philosophy and spiritual practice, A GUIDE TO HINDU SPIRITUALITY builds a non-limiting framework for discussions.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Honestly, I read a little here and there in this book, e.g. skimmed it. By the title I thought it would have more of a devotional nature, i.e. it would lead the reader into a personal experience and understanding of Hinduism. Therefore it was not what I was seeking. I kept it for my library because it will be a good book for reference and for the possible occasional indepth analytical understanding of aspects of Hinduism.
