Description

This book is an authentic interpretation of over 400 Indian concepts and practices derived from a personal exploration of India, over a period of 50 years.

'Padayatra' is a journey on foot and each selected concept and practice is treated as a stepping-stone in a journey to understanding what India is all about.

The book is a sensitive and sophisticated introduction to India for an intelligent and serious readership, and will also be invaluable as a reference text for libraries, cultural exchange agencies, business orientation courses—especially for those anticipating an extended interaction with India.

About the Author

Peggy Holroyde studied Hindu philosophy and Buddhist thinking under Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, at Oxford.

 
 

Praise

"The book benefits from Holroyde's study that lends it a depth not usually associated with popular encyclopedias."
