Was definitely the right book for my class and after the class was over, since it was the only Hinduism book I didn't fully read and it has some legitimate detail and in depth readings/writings on some Hindu philosophies, beliefs, myths, etc.., I took the book home with me and have been reading it here and there: very good book for anyone interested in Hindu studies.

Alternate history of the Jews written by none other than the protestant founder Martin Luther in his "Jews and their Iies" which almost every christian German was influenced by and their subsequent hatred for their upper caste Jews. The Jews had a monopoly of the Arts, the sciences and their financial institutions and everything else of importance in Germany during the 30s. The "poor ordinary Germans" were the backward castes who needed to be saved from the alleged eviI upper caste Jews. The only way that could be done was to take the Jewish history and Jewish culture and rewrite them for the benefit of the "underdogs" of Germany. Lets show these upper castes that we the populists can do to them ..We the backward caste ordinary Germans have a number on these elites. So Martin Luther and Hitler and others went about rewriting Jewish history and culture and had their own interpretations which they embellished to their satisfaction. Thus was born the alternate Jewish history of "Jews and their Iies" and Mein Kamph.

Wendy's quixotic hatred for the upper castes Hindus and Brahmins is not very different from the German's hatred of the Jews. So this arrogant creature had decided to rewrite the Hindu religion, Hindu culture and reinterpret Hinduism in a way to get her pound of flesh from the upper caste Brhamins in her siding with the backward castes of India. The German Academia published tons of materials against Jews too. So much for Academia.

Although the caste thing and social Endogamy practiced by the Brahmins is nothing to crowe about, it is no different than the elitism and social endogamy practiced by the Jews of the world.

Google 'Wendy's Child Syndrome' before buying this book. This author needs to be psychoanalyzed first before she could psychoanalyze other religions.
