This site is dedicated to Lord Ganesha - Lord of Beginnings and Wisdom, Bharat Mata (Mother
India) and to the
intuition of countless rishis (seers) of the
past, who committed their lives in pursuit of Sanatan Dharma, the Eternal way
The purpose of this site is to provide useful information
about the world's oldest religion. Hinduism's traditions have been preserved
continuously since ancient times to the present day despite the tyranny of her invaders.
This site catalogs thoughts
of world-renowned intellectuals regarding Hinduism, recommends books for further
reading, and provides useful links for further research.
This site was established as an educational resource to inspire Hindus worldwide, to create a sense of
pride, and to give
pleasure regarding Hindu heritage. Hindus can take pride in the fact that India
has never invaded any country in the last thousand years of history. This site
is also meant to educate, enlighten, and create awareness of the rich
canvass of religious traditions of Hinduism. It is hoped that it will help to remove some
of the common misconceptions and misinterpretations surrounding rituals and worship found
in popular media.
Om Asato maa
tamaso maa jyotir-ga-maya;

Om Shaantih Shaantih Shaantih.
O Lord Lead me from the unreal to the
Lead me from the darkness to light.
Lead me from death to immortality.
May there be peace, peace, and perfect peace.

About the Author
My name is Sushama Londhe. I am an Indian-American who came to the U.S. as a graduate student 30 years ago, and I have settled here for good. This site is my personal endeavor to provide appropriate collection of information about Hinduism, as well as to attain a correct appraisal of India’s rich cultural heritage. Furthermore, it is to create awareness among Hindus and non-Hindus about the world's most ancient living tradition.
Hindu Wisdom, formerly known as A Tribute to Hinduism, started out as a personal quest for my own spiritual heritage. The inception of the site began in the fall of 1996 as a small, personal, non-commercial web page, and it has grown over the years as I have become aware of more relevant information. I welcome feedback from everybody, through e-mail or the guestbook. This site is NOT associated with any religious or political organization.
