Welcome To American Veda



This website is dedicated to enriching and expanding upon the content of the book, American Veda, which is now available in paperback (and for e-readers).  When first published, the book was named one of the top ten books on religion and spirituality by both Huffington Post and the American Library Association’s Booklist Online. The Uberoi Foundation for Religious Studies gave the book its Award of Special Distinction.  Your suggestions for improving this site, or for new content, are welcome.
