Summary

Hinduism is arguably the world's oldest religion. Yet the word 'Hindu' is of foreign 18th-century origin. Although defined as polytheistic, Gandhi famously declared that one can be a Hindu without believing in any god. Introducing Hinduism examines the key philosophical, literary, mythological and cultural traditions of this diverse faith. It explores links with and differences from other religions, and describes the resurgence of Hindu extremism, the phenomenon of Bollywood and the Hindu diaspora.
