HINDU: Joy of Life is an attempt to simplify the tenets of an age-old religion and to demystify it for the reader of today. Utpal K Banerjee delves into the past to bring its understanding to the present. This book is a quest to discover the enduring vitality that exists in the Hindu way of life. Beginning with the Vedic deities the sun, moon, fire and storm, Banerjee weaves his narrative through a time when the universe was devoid of a beginning and when noble thoughts were born. The tale moves on to great Indian philosophies and literature, to the visual and performing arts. This book is a complete guide to the Hindu way of life. Religion and ritual come together to bring the concepts of Hinduism to the fore.
