Hindupedia, the Hindu Encyclopedia:About

From Hindupedia, the Hindu Encyclopedia

Hindupedia is devoted to educating the public about all aspects of Hinduism ranging from history and philosophy to current events that impact Hindus. We will strive to hold ourselves to the highest level of integrity and provide a factual and neutral perspective on all topics. On contentious issues, we will strive to present the information from all sides and provide the reader with a holistic view of the issue. This includes our philosophy of Pan-Hinduism, wherein we promote the Hinduism of all sects.

We are the only online Hindu encyclopedia that provides the public with a Hindu perspective on our Dharma.

Administratively, we are in the process of registering as a non-profit organization (501(c)3) registered in the US.
