Michael Linderman

Michael Linderman was a student at the University of Pennsylvania during the summer of 2001 when he began researching Hindu temples in New Jersey. His research involved visiting over two dozen Hindu temples and centers throughout the state. Profiles of individual centers include detailed histories of each instituition, with a focus on history of organization and funding bodies; target population and language/caste groups served; current management and personnel; relationships with local communities and with other temples; and the centers’ religious art, architecture, and ritual installations. This research was expanded and revised during the summer of 2003.
