About this course:

Over one billion people around the world practice a form of Hinduism. In this course, we focus on the concepts and terms of Hinduism—such as yoga, sacrifice, reincarnation, and karma—from the earliest civilization on the Indian subcontinent through modern times and the diaspora. The emphasis of our discussion centers on understanding the authentic developments in the history of Hinduism and India. We listen to readings from important texts and discuss ancient and contemporary customs and rituals. While no reading is required, suggestions of primary and secondary materials, widely available novels, and films will be provided.
