Description
Most introductory books on Hinduism stress its classical religious tradition, with an emphasis on the Brahmin texts and practices; very few consider the practices of lower caste Indians, the role of women in the culture, the religious life of village folk, devotion to the deity Rama, or the Sant tradition of North India. The Many Colors of Hinduism provides a balanced view of this rich religious tradition, acknowledging the full range of its many competing and even contradictory aspects while explaining cultural metaphors, symbols, and narratives from ancient times to the present. Utilizing a thematic-historical approach, religious studies professor Carl Olson approaches Hinduism through historical themes, consulting anthropological fieldwork and the voices of thinkers ranging from Indologist Alf Hiltebeitel to Cambridge scholar Julius Lipner, producing a narrative of Hinduism that emulates the storytelling nature of the religion itself.
