Chapter 7 page 99-100. Start at the bottom of 99 "Many Americans voted for Al Gore during the 2000
U.S. Presidential Election, yet they experienced the social and economic consequences of having George W. Bush in presidency on September 11, 2001, just as much as the Americans who voted for Bush. Adhibhauktika or group karma can override our own Karma."

Piss. Off.

This is a good overview of the history and philosophy; gods, people and places of Hinduism. Baring in mind that this covers over four thousand years of beliefs Johnsen doesn't do a bad job though sometimes her style did occasionally irritate me - but then what do you expect when you pick up an "Idiot's Guide". Johnsen is a convert to Hinduism and her passion for her chosen religion is obvious but this is not a flaw. I like people who are passionate about their subject.

Lots of good information, mostly clearly presented. An easy read with maybe a little bit too much repetition for my taste. Overall it was a worthwhile read.… (mere)

This was an excellent, easy read. I enjoy researching Hinduism, and this book was able to teach me a few new things. A great find.

A terrible book, written from a very religous perspective, without any objective view. It also ignores all linguistic and archeological evidence of the Indo-Aryan settlement in India.
