From Abhang to Zodiac, these two volumes contain over 2,500 thoroughly cross-referenced entries that clearly define terms and concepts related to the beliefs, practices, and history of Hinduism. Hinduism is a vastly important world religion not only because of its mythology and philosophy but also on account of its rich cultural traditions. Whether through epic narratives of love and war by Sanskrit poets, the drama and devotion of Hindu dancers, or the teachings of yoga masters, the spread of Hinduism has enriched the lives of people throughout the world. Complete with black-and-white photographs illustrating architectural, biographical, geographical, and mythological entries. Charts and maps provide added information. 16 category indexes direct the reader to related terms. James G. Lochtefeld, Ph.D., teaches religion at Carthage College, where he specializes in Hinduism and Indian philosophy.
