According to the Washington Times, the encyclopedia is written in English and includes about 7,000 articles on Hinduism and its practices.

It also deals with Indian history, languages, art, music, dance, architecture, medicine and women's issues, the report said.

USC Professor Hal French is associate editor of the 'Encyclopedia of Hinduism' and said the goal was to have a definitive work, it added.
