Hinduism & the Baha'i Faith
Hinduism is one of the most ancient of the existing religious traditions; the Bahá'í Faith is the most modern. Here is an introduction to the Bahá'í Faith for those of the Hindu tradition.
Most presentations of the Bahá'í Faith have been from Western, Christian or Islamic viewpoint. This approach excludes much of the world's population. By presenting the Bahá'í Faith from the perspective of the Hindu tradition, Dr Momen provides information about the Faith in a way which is meaningful to Hindus, while giving Bahá'ís new insights into Hinduism.
Dr Momen examines the Bahá'í approach to Darshana, Dharma, and Moksha. Furthermore, He gives an account of:
- Significant Hindu prophecies
- The Bahá'í social teachings, laws and history
- The Bahá'í community
