The study of Hinduism is dominated by brahmanical master narrative. In this essay I suggest alternative ways to study Hinduism. Documenting diverse regional narratives and

extracting Hindu practices from these narratives is a starting

point. In doing so, reliance on fieldwork-based narratives

that provide insight into the different orientations by

avoiding the temptation to subordinate the local and

regional narratives to an overarching master narrative

would help us understand the many aspects and realms of

Hinduism.
