About this title


This critical study offers a fresh appraisal of Hindu tradition as a rich and sensible philosophy of life, one based on plenitude, domesticity, transcendence, and control. Distinguished scholar T.N. Madan analyzes the ideas of Hinduism that dominate the literature of India, such as "renunciation," "purity," and "auspiciousness," and explains how modernity has changed conceptions of the good life, causing Hindus to search anew for their sense of self and social orientation.
