This landmark volume is a critical addition to the new conversation regarding Hindu chaplaincy in the United States. The depth and breadth of the volume highlights the challenges and complexities facing Hindu chaplains, as well as their unique and creative opportunities for engagement and support. As the religious landscape of the United States continues to shift, Hindu Approaches to Spiritual Care illuminates a path forward not just for Hindu chaplains, but for all chaplains working in a multi-religious ecosystem.

Hindu Approaches to Spiritual Care is a pioneering volume that sheds light on the foundations, practicalities and growing of Hindu spiritual care in America today. There is much-needed wisdom here for the wider Hindu community, but also countless insights for the rest of us, as we think about Hinduism in America - and also rethink and renew our own ways of spiritual care.
