Hindu Temple Calls for Authors for
Authoritative Book On Hinduism


HINDUISM TODAY: TULSA, OKLAHOMA, January 27, 2005:

The Hindu Temple of Greater Tulsa is celebrating the Pranpratishtha (consecration) of the Deities in the temple in June, 2005. On this occasion they will publish an authoritative book on Hinduism. Potential authors for this edited book are invited. Please send your MSS or any related question to Dr. Pramode Verma at pverma@ou.edu. Additional details on the planned book are available at "source."

The book concept reads in part:

"This volume will be of high quality in terms of its get up and presentation, so that it can be preserved over a long period of time.

In our view, the volume should focus more on the underlying philosophy of Hinduism and less on its day-to-day practice, which has evolved differently in different parts of India, or the world for that matter.

One or more articles would recognize the local context in which the temple was established, and some of the underpinnings of the original vision. In general, all articles should be thought provoking and interesting to a broad base of audience.

In general, all articles submitted for publication should be easy to understand and meaningful to the second- and third-generation of Indian Americans and their descendants and, of course, the non-Hindus.

Our belief is that the spiritual foundations of Hinduism are so universal, and the context in which it can exist and co-exist so global and pervasive, that we simply take it for granted, without making an effort to explain it. This volume will make that conscious effort. Unless we make a concerted effort to project Hinduism as way of life rather than as a sequence of activities, we will not be doing our best to explain the fact that Hinduism is not just a set of procedures to address known contexts and situations, but also the unforeseen and what is yet to come."
