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.

This inclusive, two-volume encyclopedia contains entries on the history, practices, and beliefs of Hinduism, as well as the art and architecture, medicine, sects and social groups, and geographical centers of the religion. It is an essential and highly valuable resource for every reference collection.

James G. Lochtefeld, Ph.D., teaches religion at Carthage College, where he specializes in Hinduism and Indian philosophy.
