Explores Hindu concepts and practices through readings, films, and slide presentations. Traces the origin and development of Hinduism from its roots in Vedic ritual and the indigenous civilizations of Mohenjo Daro and Harrapa. Introduces the Upanishads (perhaps the earliest philosophical texts), the great Hindu Epics, Mahabharata and Ramayana, the Sastras (manuals on Hindu life dating from the early centuries of the current era), the Puranas (medieval compositions telling the stories of the gods), Tantra (an esoteric form of Hinduism), the artistic traditions of Hinduism, and modern Hindu political movements. Special emphasis placed on the Gandhi’s interpretation of Hindu teachings of non-violence.
