VictoriaLeo_author "Reiki Master" : Organized, clear, interesting - accurate - well-done! October 18, 2014. Excellent, well organized, not doctrinaire, very clear. Hinduism isn't an "ism" in the same way as Christianity: there is no unifying creed or hierarchy; it is heterogeneous. This author cuts through the details to make it all understandable. Bought it for a relative who was trying to understand what I was telling him about India and now he really gets it. An excellent distilling of complexity into clarity.

June 30, 2014. A fascinating book, I read itin one breath (sorry if this is not a correct English expression). A verycomplete intro to the whole religion and also a good reference guide. Iespecially appreciate Mr. Srinivasan's respectful attitude towards everyreligion

Great introduction May 10, 2014. This is agreat book to use as an introduction to Hinduism. It also steers you in theright direction for deeper study should you choose. What I really like is howit's laid out so you can jump to a topic if you want to refresh on a particulartopic and that it makes references to other chapters or where in the book youcan find further information on say a particular deity, etc. without having tostop and did around in the index. Very user friendly.

February 10, 2014. Writing a concise book that attempts to explain in simple terms the complex faith "Hinduism" I thought was impossible. No more doubts. This book is written in a clear manner that I believe will appeal to everyone -the believers, agnostics, atheists, the curious and more. I am certainly not a scholar, and although I have spent quite a bit of time educating myself in understanding the philosophical messages of this faith, I did benefit reading this book as it cleared some of the doubts I had. The author seems to have done quite a bit of serious research and through the proper usage of metaphors he has made it easier to understand and enjoy this wonderful book. The book reads like a gradually developing story challenging the reader to move from the basics to the complex. Not only the customs and the significance of numerous festivals are explained in a simple manner but for those interested in deeper understanding of this faith Chapters 19 and 20 provides a step by step explanation of various schools of thought such as the six schools of the Darshanas, the Vedantic paths to salvation in particular the dvaita, vishishtadvita and advita paths, their philosophies, the sutras, the root causes of human suffering, pursuing belief by doubting everything and more..
