The Hindu Traditions

Prof. Vasudha Narayanan
Departement of Religion
University of Florida

In this talk Narayanan asks three basic questions as to the nature of the Hindu religion and to the question of whether there are aspects of Hinduism that engage in proselytizing. Narayanan gives a historical presentation of Hinduism from its origin to its modern-day manifestations. Narayanan analyses the forms of Hinduism that do seem to be inclusive in their attitude towards other religions and she also offers a critique of their theology.
