Description
This is a spiritual history of the world's most religiously complex and diverse society, the culmination of more than a decade's work from National Humanities Medal winner Diana Eck. She explores the sacred places of India, taking the reader on an extraordinary trip through the rich history and beliefs of this land, providing a basic introduction to Hindu religious ideas and how those ideas influence our understanding of the modern sense of "India" as a nation.

"In this lucid, learned and luminous book, Diana Eck ... leads us into an unfamiliar world, with myths and symbols that seem initially strange, but by the end of this rich journey we find that we have encountered unexpected regions within ourselves."—Karen Armstrong

"No major civilization has made sacred the very ground of its being as India has done, and no one has described this sacred organism with the down-to-earth humanity of Diana Eck. This is a magnificent introduction to India by one of the leading lights in the study of religion today."—John Stratton Hawley
