Format: Paperback
In this installment of the excellent "Elements of" series, Cross concisely summarizes the sometimes bewildering varieties of Hindu religion. Cross traces the historical and philosophical development of Indian spirituality, with due attention given to the major gods and goddesses, the philosophical schools of Vedanta, Sahnkya and Yoga, as well as modern developments.
Throughout, Cross explains complex symbolism and mythology in an elegant style which conveys the spiritual power of these symbols and stories without ever oversimplifying. This volume is one of the best concise intoductions to Indian spirituality I have seen.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Excellent treatise on the subject - Cross knows his subject and explains it superbly without skipping any relevant detail - all the dots are connected. If you're into Quantum Mechanics and primordial matter then the Sankhara view of the universe and big bang (unrolling) will be of interest.
