The Encyclopedia of Authentic Hinduism

Yet another good news for Theology students.
One of the reference readings suggested in your recommended readings list is "The True History and Religion of India: A Concise Encyclopedia of Authentic Hinduism" by Prakashanand Saraswati of Jagatguru Kripalu Parishat, whose detailed table of contents can be viewed on their website. Indian edition of this book can be had from Motilal Banarsidass Publishers, New Delhi.
Alternatively, you can also read articles from The Encyclopedia of Authentic Hinduism here. It covers about 70 articles. The site in itself is comprehensive and user friendly. It gives elaborate introduction to the encyclopedic work, information about the author Swami Prakashanand Saraswati, the articles segregated into sections, a detailed glossary as in The True History and Religion of India, a complete section on abbreviations and scriptural bibliography, information about the transliteration of Hindi and sanskrit words. You can save these articles as html files or pdf files for later reading.
I hope this resource will be of interest to you all.
