My rating: 5 of 5 stars
As quoted in the book, the poem “The Blind Men and the Elephant.” I too have touched a part of Hinduism, albeit a very small part. That’s why I enjoyed very much reading this book because it gave me a different angle to look at Hinduism, not just as a religion, but as a way of life.
I like the authors Swami Achuthananda writing style, in a very serious topic, he still manages to make me chuckle.
Understanding any religion is a difficult task, and reading this book probably won’t help me to understand Hinduism as a whole or even with the necessary indepth of knowledge, but it did open my mind to a new dimension. Especially about the things we are familiar with but do not truly understand. Like, Yoga, greeting with Namaste, the appreciation of nature, and the ritual of worship.
I recommend this book to those who are open-minded to other cultures and views, and to those who are willing to open their minds and be presented to The Many Many Many Gods of Hinduism.
