About the Book :
Hinduism is not a founded religion like Christianity of Islam. It grew in the course of centuries. Yet judging from its true scriptures and its universally accepted beliefs and observances it is neither a hotchpotch of diverse beliefs and practices, nor a fellowship of faiths, nor a loosely knit pattern of ideologies, but a clear-cut creed, having its own great religious luminaries corresponding to the prophets and Messiahs of other religions, its own theology, its own cosmology, its own ethical code, its own holy places and its own fasts and festivals. In this book, Fundamentals of Hinduism, its author, Dr. P.L. Bhargava, has given a rational analysis of all the important aspects of Hinduism. The author holds the view that if we set aside the Puranic mythology, the Tantric cults and many of the popular beliefs and practices not based on the ancient scriptures, what emerges on the basis of the true scriptures of Hinduism is a well defined and noble religion of which its followers may justly be proud.
