The Hindu Way of Awakening
Making sense of the plethora of Hindu divinities is an intimidating task for modern Indians as well as Westerners. Swami Kriyananda brings order to Hinduism’s vast array of symbols and imagery, drawing forth the underlying teachings from which they arise, truths inherent in all religions.
Swamiji explains that the basic purpose of Hindu iconography is gaining direct inner experience with God. By showing the transcendent unity of all religions, this perspective promotes genuine tolerance and appreciation of religious diversity.
Swami Kriyananda’s inspired, entertaining, energetic writing style makes this book delightful reading for anyone interested in spirituality and the deeper meanings of religion.
