In the sixties, Transcendental Meditation, a Hindu-based movement, became fashionable as a way to therapy and psychological well-being . . . Its influence waned, ironically, after the courts decided that TM was a religion rather than a form of therapy, as TM had claimed.  But its popularity helped open the doors to a wider acceptance of Eastern philosophy and religions in mainstream America.  Another Americanized form of Hinduism is Hare Krishna. This volume and the volume on Buddhism in this series together present a comprehensive overview of Eastern religions, their views, and their impact on contemporary North America.

This book includes a concise introduction to the groups, an overview of the groups' theology -- in their own words, a biblical response, tips for witnessing effectively, a bibliography with sources for further study, a chart comparing the beliefs with biblical Christianity and a glossary.
