    Hinduism is a very broad term for the religious practices and doctrines of the Indian people. This tradition is believed to have begun in about 1800 BCE with religious poems known as the Vedas. Hinduism is best known in the west through the doctrines of Advaita, the belief that there is only one ultimate reality. Advaitans, however, worshipped a range of icons that represented the separate manifestations of the ultimate Brahman.

    Would you try another book from Dr. Gregory Kozlowski and/or Ben Kingsley?

    if it is not about hinudism :-)


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I wish it was read by an indian since the pronounciation would have been better no that Mr kingsley did a bad job, but the names are definitely pronounced different from what they are.


    Was Hinduism worth the listening time?

    yes

    Story
    (1347)

    During his years in a neural-health facility, Pat Peoples has formulated a theory about silver linings. He believes that his life is a movie produced by God, that his mission is to become physically fit and emotionally supportive, and that if he succeeds, his happy ending will be the return of his estranged wife, Nikki. When Pat goes to live with his parents, everything seems changed: no one will talk to him about Nikki, and his new therapist seems to be recommending adultery as a form of therapy.
