A POPULAR DICTIONARY OF HINDUISM
This dictionary is a glossary of terms and a reference work whose entries cover the whole complex phenomenon of Hinduism. It is intended for readers who are interested in Indian religious thought and practices, including yoga; for students of religions, social workers, and administrators who come into contact with Hindu immigrant communities; and for Hindus themselves, particularly those who have been born and educated in the West or received a Western-type education in India. It will also provide useful overall orientation for the still-growing number of followers of Hindu teachings and movements in Western countries.
