About the Author

Murali Balaji is director of education and curriculum reform for the Hindu American Foundation (HAF).


Digital Hinduism helps to legitimize a relatively new conversation in religious studies. Because the subfield of digital religious studies is still being defined and studies on the intersection of new media and religion are burgeoning, particularly within Hindu studies, this collection of essays brings further insight to a fairly new area of study. . . . This collection has many strengths. Almost every essay provides a wealth of information on technology and how accessible that technology may be to various communities. Additionally, many different topics relating to the formation of an online Hindu identity are represented. An effort was clearly made to bring a diversity of voices into the conversation. . . On the whole, this collection provides a wide-ranging survey of digital Hinduism. * Reading Religion *
