Hinduism in France

Abstract : As in other Western countries, the presence of Hindus and Hindu traditions in France is linked to the worldwide migrations of Hindu populations and to the diffusion of religious movements of Hindu origin in the West. Thus, on the one hand, this article focuses on the immigration of Hindu groups to France and their main religious practices, and on the other, on the diffusion of Hindu ideas and practices within French society. The specificity of the national sociopolitical context also deserves attention, for it explains and determines many aspects of Hinduism in France.
