The popular view of Hinduism is that of a complex, confusing mix of rituals, festivals, and customs combined with thousands of gods and goddesses. Yet, it is also the source for deep philosophical insight and practices, such as yoga and meditation. This picture masks the underlying unity and appeal of the ancient ideas of the Vedic seers seeking answers to fundamental questions: Who am I? What is this creation? What or who is God? These questions are addressed in the study of Vedanta--the Bhagavad Gita along with the Upanishads. This course will introduce Hinduism through these most sacred texts and the relevance of their messages in day to day life. It will cover the basic tenets of Hinduism -- dharma (ethical living) karma theory (destiny/free will), karma yoga (path to spiritual/emotional maturity) and reincarnation.
