Event description
Our “World Religions” series provides an in-depth look at the world’s main religious traditions. Term 3: Hinduism

About this Event

Our “World Religions” series provides an in-depth look at the world’s main religious traditions, and goes into greater detail than the information provided in our introductory “Discovering Religious Diversity” series. Over an entire Term of eight sessions focused on a single belief tradition, we’ll examine the history and development of each tradition, view key figures associated with its founding or development, its sacred texts, contemporary beliefs and practices, and the major festivals and commemorations associated with each. During the final session of each Term, we’ll view a representative film for each tradition that accentuates and highlights the main points discussed during the Term.

Term 3's topic is Hinduism

This eight-week class provides a detailed introduction to the Jewish religion. Individual classes will focus on:

  • Week 1: Course Introduction; The Indus Valley Civilisation
  • Week 2: Creation Myths and Hindu Cosmology
  • Week 3: Hindu Deities: The Hindu Trinities of Trimūrti and Tridevi
  • Week 4: Hindu Deities: Major Gods & Goddesses
  • Week 5: Hindu Denominations and Sects
  • Week 6: The Sacred Texts of Hinduism: Vedas, Upanishads, Mahābhārat, Gītā and Rāmāyan
  • Week 7: Hindu Beliefs and Concepts
  • Week 8: Movie Night

Class meets on Thursday evenings from 6:30-9:00pm, beginning on Thu 30 July runing for 8 weeks ending on Thu 17 September 2020.

Distance-learning options are available for those unable to attend classes and those living oitside the Waikato. Learners can choose to either attend our live-streamed classes via the free Zoom software, or watch the video-recorded sessions at a more convenient time.

All classes are taught from an historical/objective point of view and do not involve theology.
