Jeffery D. Long, "Hinduism in America" (Bloomsbury Academic, 2020)


In Hinduism in America (Bloomsbury Academic, 2020), Jeffrey D. Long traces two worlds that converge – that of Hindu immigrants to America who strive to preserve their traditions in a foreign land, and that of American spiritual seekers who turn to Hindu practices and ideas. Long explores the influence of concepts such karma, rebirth, meditation and yoga on the American consciousness, along with Hindu temples in America.
