Focus on Hinduism: Audio-Visual Resources for Teaching Religion. Occasional Publication No. 23.
Dell, David; And Others
The guide presents annotated lists of audio and visual materials about the Hindu religion. The authors point out that Hinduism cannot be comprehended totally by reading books; thus the resources identified in this guide will enhance understanding based on reading. The guide is intended for use by high school and college students, teachers, anthropologists, musicologists, sociologists, and historians of religion, art, music, dance, literature, and drama. Most of the materials cited were published during the 1960s and 1970s. Section I presents films and videotapes, and section II identifies slides, filmstrips, and microfiche. Both sections group the materials according to three categories: those designed for the study of Hinduism, those useful as background material, and those prepared by a sect for sectarian purposes. Included in these resources are films about ceremonies, lives of holy men, and pilgrimages. For each resource, information is given on length, color or black/white, film speed, sale and rental fees, publication date, publisher, and a lengthy annotation. Section III describes 16 recordings of Hindu music, songs, and chants. A concluding section identifies 29 organizational sources of information and materials. (Author/AV)
