Inhaltsangabe:Einleitung: Unendlich viele Götter prägen das hinduistische Pantheon Indiens, insbesondere aber Vishnu und seine Avatare Krishna und Rama.Tiefe Gläubigkeit ist in den Tempeln zu erleben, wobei der Hinduismus stark auf das tägliche Leben Einfluss nimmt. Daher wird kurz der Hinduismus (die Hindu-Religionen) von Ahimsa bis Yoga, sein Pantheon und der Weltenzyklus der Yugas, aber auch der Alltag dargestellt.Die Geschichte Vishnus und seine Ikonographie sowie seine vielfältigen Namen zeigen Visvarupa, den Allgestaltigen. Natürlich werden auch die scholastischen Traditionen kurz beleuchtet. Vishnus zehn Avatars und ihre Legenden werden skizziert, Rama und Sita näher beschrieben.Krishna, Radha und Bhakti sind die Inhalte der nächsten Kapitel. Einzelne Legenden – wie z.B. den euphorischen Rasatanz – zeigen das Verhältnis zu den Gopis (den Hirtenmädchen) und vor allem den strahlenden Helden und Liebhaber. „Die Gita war mir stets eine Quelle“ sprach schon Mahatma Ghandi. In vielen der wichtigsten Zitate wird Krishnas Gedankenwelt und seine wesentliche Botschaft „Richte Dein Herz auf Mich“ entwickelt. Selbstlose Pflichterfüllung und die Liebe zu Gott führt dazu, dass mit Lord Krishna der Weg der Erkenntnis und das Einsein mit dem Allerhöchsten erreicht wird. Indische Spiritualität und Mystik sind seit Jahrzehnten im Westen immer mehr gefragt. Die neureligiösen hinduistischen Bewegungen, ihr Erscheinungsbild und die spezifischen Merkmale prägen die nächsten Kapitel, Viele westliche Menschen suchen Spiritualität – zeigen viele neuere Studien – und finden sie in den neureligiösen Bewegungen (der Begriff „Sekte“ ist umgangssprachlich üblich, aber wissenschaftlich nicht korrekt). Als eine der hinduistischen Guru-Bewegungen wird Hare Krishna (Internationale Gesellschaft für Krishna-Bewusstsein) bearbeitet. Lehre, Weltordnung, Chanten und Regulierende Prinzipien und natürlich His Divine Swami Prabhupada sind die Stichworte der nächsten Kapitel. „Alles Leben ist Yoga“, alles evolutionäre Werden, das „kosmische Drama“ und das Individuum als „göttliches Instrument“ sind für Sri Aurobindo die wesentlichsten Bestandteile seiner Philosophie und Lehre, seines „Integralen Yogas“. Sein Werk, Overmind und Supramentales, sowie „Die Mutter“ und Auroville geben Überblick über den größten aktuellen Philosophen Indiens. Die vorliegende Arbeit spannt den Boden von elementaren Begriffen des Hinduismus über die königliche Gestalt des höchsten Gottes Vishnu bzw. [...]

Books about Hinduism often begin by noting the immense size and complexity of the subject. Hinduism is vast and diverse, they say. Or it doesn't exist at all - Hinduism is merely a convenient (and foreign) term that masks a plurality of traditions. In either case, readers are discouraged by the sense that they are getting only a tiny sample or a shallow overview of something huge and impossible to understand. This book is designed to be accessible and comprehensive in a way that other introductions are not, maintaining an appealing narrative and holding the reader's interest in the unfolding sequence of ideas through time and place. Each of the 13 chapters combines historical material with key religious and philosophical ideas, supported by substantial quotations from scriptures and other texts. The overarching organizational principle is a historical narrative largely grounded in archaeological information. Historic places and persons are fleshed out as actors in a narrative about the relation of the sacred to ordinary existence as it is mediated through arts, sciences, rituals, and philosophical ideas. Although many books purport to introduce the Hindu tradition, this is the only one with a broad historical focus that emphasizes archaeological as well as textual evidence. It will nicely complement Vasuda Narayanan's forthcoming introduction, which takes the opposite approach of focusing on the lived experience of Hindu believers.

According to Hindu mythology, Brahma has a lifespan of 100 years. That may appear way short for a god of Brahma’s standing . (He is the creator of our solar system.) But Brahma and Hindu gods do not follow our traditional 24-hour clock. They represent time in cosmic units of yugas and kalpas. If you don’t understand any of these terms, that’s ok. A kalpa, for instance, is defined as a day of Brahma and translates to 4.32 billion human years. In fact Brahma has a lifespan of 311 trillion years! We explain these colossal timescales, as we introduce Brahma in this book. You will learn that Brahma initially was the supreme deity of Hinduism, but he could not hang on to his position for long. A judgmental lapse is said to have caused his downfall. With Brahma’s descent, Vishnu rose to power. Today, in the Hindu pantheon, Vishnu is a prominent god, and has a following of more than 700 million devotees, who are occasionally identified by the U-shared marks on their foreheads. With a focus on Vishnu and Brahma, we continue our journey beyond the Vedic era. We begin by examining a popular creation myth in which Brahma emerges from the navel of a sleeping Vishnu and starts crafting the world. Further on, we explore the churning of the milky ocean, a crucial event in Hindu mythology and one of the rare occasions when gods and demons collaborated (instead of fighting) to search for the nectar of immortality. Many precious things—and surprises—came out this quest, including Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and consort of Vishnu. We also get to know a critical insight into our ancestry. According to Hinduism, we are all related and descendants of Manu, the father of human race. While this book focuses on Brahma and Vishnu, there will be occasional detours when we pause to look at art and architecture. In particular, we’ll look at Angkor Wat, the largest Hindu temple in the world. Guess what? The fact that Angkor Wat is located outside India has dented Hindu pride from time immemorial. We’ll also peek at ancient paintings from a mythological perspective, especially the unique genre of miniature paintings called ragamala that combines art, music, and poetry. A remarkable shift in worship took place during this period. Bhakti became a major form of worship and pervaded Hindu society forever. If you are unfamiliar with bhakti, then nothing exemplifies bhakti (devotion) more than the dancing-and-chanting Hare Krishnas.
