From the Author

I wanted to help people understand Hinduism without having to go through a lot of technical details. I have tried to make it easy to understand, without indulging in oversimplification. The topics covered address the questions I've most often encountered over the last, nearly three decades of my stay in America. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
