Overview

The faith you follow is with you from the moment you are born, until the moment you die and beyond. Following a Faith: A Hindu Life explores some of the cornerstones of what it means to be a Hindu today, through Sacred Thread and Divali celebrations, wedding ceremonies, what happens in a mandir and why many Hindus go on a pilgrimage to the Ganges. This book supports the national curriculum guidelines for religious education for children aged 8+, and promotes religious tolerance and consideration. Following a Faith looks at the rich, cultural and colourful traditions, events, rituals, celebrations, foods, buildings, clothing and more that make up a major religion. Beautiful, bright, bold and modern - these books bring religious non-fiction right up to date and make them relevant and essential reading for followers of a faith and for anyone interested to learn what a religion is all about.
