Hindu Studies

Hindu traditions are followed by about 70 percent of the roughly one billion people of India. Elsewhere, with the exception of the Indonesian island of Bali, Hindus represent only minority populations. The geographical boundaries of today's India are not, however, adequate to contour a full account of these traditions. Over different periods in the last four or five millennia, Hindu traditions and their antecedents have predominated in the adjacent areas of Pakistan and Bangladesh and have been influential in such other regions as Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Southeast Asia, and Indonesia.
