Originally published in 1935, this volume provides a discussion of the structures of belief and practice in popular Hinduism. Taking into account the complexity of Hinduism, and its position as a composite religion of many diverse elements, the text goes on to find certain common elements which draw together its various aspects. The relationship between Hinduism and social organisation is also considered, with detailed discussion regarding the importance of the caste system. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in historical interpretations of Hinduism and religious studies in general.
