This course has two objectives: 1) to provide an understanding of what India’s four religions believe and practice, and 2) to discuss our own reactions to the timeless questions each faith tries to address. We’ll discuss the historical forces in India’s history that drove her history; the fundamentals of reincarnation religions; Hinduism; Buddhism; the Jains and Sikhs; and the impacts Islamic and Christian colonialism have had in India.
