I read the book and found it offensive that writers keep refering to the religion as a 'cult'. Religions are 'faith',not cult. Pictures in the book were beautiful which is why I was attracted to it but I ended up returning it because of the insensitive tone of book.It is not worth my collection.

This is a wonderful book of the history of India and the details of the Hindu religion with some information on the influence of Bhuddism. It helps to put all of the world's religions in perspective.
