Beginning in Bangalore, this chapter describes the progress in India and the role of religion in it. It describes Hinduism and the five strands that constitute Hindu dharma in its many facets: doctrine, practice, society, story and performance, and bhakti. The book aims to unravel the fabric a bit, focusing on just one strand: practice.

Keywords:   India, Bangalore, religion, Hinduism, dharma, bhakti, practice
