Title: Introduction to Hindu Dharma – Jagadguru HH Sri Chandrasekharendra Saraswati Swamigal

Editor: Michael Oren Fitzgerald

"Introduction to Hindu Dharma consists of selections from the more than 4,000 discourses of Kanchi Sankaracharya (1894-1994). It covers the topics of prayer and virtue, metaphysical truth, and the conflict between traditional Hindu dharma and modernity. A sage in the Sankara tradition, the Jagadguru was one of the most beloved and honored spiritual figures of the twentieth century in India and much of Asia and Europe. This book has the distinction of introducing both the sage and his spiritual legacy to the Western world in the form of an irreplaceable introduction to Hinduism."
