Hindu Books > Introduction and References > Hinduism Simplified > Introduction


This Hinduism Simplified is intended for youths who are being brought up in a western environment away from the mainstream of the Hindu culture. The need to present the concept of Hinduism in this easy-to-understand form developed from the author's experience of teaching the basics of Hinduism to such youths. An attempt has been made to present an overall picture of Hinduism by answering some frequently asked questions by such youths. Since the basic philosophies of Hinduism were founded by curious people seeking the truth of Nature for human welfare from those who were knowledgeable, a medium of questions and answers is chosen for the presentation. A mother-child dialogue is selected because of its uniqueness, and eighteen questions and answers have been selected because of the importance of this number in the Hindu scriptures. It is hoped that this booklet will serve the purpose of those for whom it is intended.

The information in this booklet is intended to provide only the basics of Hinduism. For more information, the readers are advised to consult other authoritative sources on Hinduism which are readily available.

The incentive to interact with children for the purpose of teaching them the basics of Hinduism came from the experiences with my own children Chandan, Anjana, and Sanjeev to whom this booklet is dedicated.
