Understanding Hinduism by Kandiah Sivalokanathan

Hinduism, the term brings to mind the picture of a diya, prasad, pooja, beat, idol worship and of late Islamophobia. These are the ideas reinforced inside the psyche of the masses by a few interested parties. Understanding Hinduism is a book that topples these pseudo ideologies to present a reality.





You would be surprised if I say that the real ideology of Hinduism is worshipping a divine power without a shape or form.

Like Kuran for Muslim, Bible for Christianity, there is no particular book for Hinduism. Because it is not a religion. It is a way of life, based on spiritual ideology and practices. So, how did the twisted logic instilled in the minds of masses come into being? After reading the whole book, you will be shellshocked to see how bogus the ones we have been following would be.

The most shocking revelation is that Hinduism believes in accepting and respective other religions. Think of the temples where 'ahindus are not permitted ' is written! Those are not for the God or the divine power inside. Shocked?


In addition the book has the explanation to all Hindu customs. For instance the importance of OM. It is not merely a religious mantra. It is a coming together of Aa, Oo, Maa. The vibration that these three syllables create is the key. It has nothing to do with religion. I am blissful is the message.
Read the book and you will be up for more shocking and interesting facts.

  1. Do you know in spite of being a Hindu there are so many things that I still don't know about Hinduism. But yes, I know the importance of OM and I chant it every day and that I do for the astrological significance the word OM holds. Trust me this book is something which I understood from your review is something that we all should read. Thanks for the wonderful review.

  5. Any religious book is controversial. But whom to believe? We live in an era where religion is only used for spreading propaganda rather than educating people on the matter.
