The Tree of Hinduism is a research project analyzing the genesis and present dimension of Hindu religion professed by nearly one billion people inside and outside India. The method chosen by the authors of the book can be better described as a confluence of multi-disciplinary approaches accompanied by a diachronic modeling of Hinduism with a deeper insight into a number of synchronic cults and layers. The work is a complex study based upon a variety of sources like the canonic and uncanonic texts in Sanskrit and vernacular Indian languages, modern documents of religious and political thought and field studies material.
