This presentation of Hinduism fairly stresses the intermingling of philosophy and faith in the religion. It hopes to expand the horizons of the traditional philosophy of faith by way of including fabric drawn from Hindu concept to its scope of curiosity. by means of hence juxtaposing the philosophy of faith with Hindu philosophy, the booklet makes an attempt to maneuver in the direction of a cross-cultural philosophy of faith. This sequence of books explores modern spiritual understandings of humanity and the universe. It covers the continued dialogues among faith and philosophy, scepticism and religion and among the various religions and ideologies.
