  • Contemporary Hinduismby P. Pratap Kumar

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 29.95

    Most overviews of Hindu belief and practice follow a history from the ancient Vedas to today.

In reality, modern Hindu faith and culture present an extraordinary range... more...

    Composed by three poet-saints between the sixth and eighth centuries A.D., the Tevaram hymns are the primary scripture of the Tamil Saivism, one of the first popular large-scale devotional movements within Hinduism.
