Hinduism

The spiritual philosophies and practices of the Indian subcontinent that fall under the rubric Hinduism range from yoga to Advaita Vedanta, from the Bhagavad-Gita to the Rig Veda, from the love poetry of Mirabai to the nondual teaching of Ramana Maharshi. It’s an extraordinarily rich tradition of which our books represent a small sampling.
