Synopsis:

This book provides a description and interpretation of the religion of the Hindus, focusing on their religious psychology and behaviour. By rejecting familiar assumptions about early Hinduism, Nirad C. Chaudhuri makes a reassessment of its formative influences and examines temple and image worship in general, and the three major cults of Siva, Krishna and the Mother Goddess. This should be of interest to scholars and students of religion and philosophy and general readers.
