WORLD RELIGIONS – REL 212 World Religions







Cosmogony – Origin of the Universe

The Hindu term “Brahma” is used to mean “vast.” This refers to vastness that is perceived by sages as infinite dimensions of a Supreme Consciousness that started without any material and then subsequently it became creation.   

Nature of God/Creator

In Hinduism, each individual deity is understood as an embodiment of all aspects of the divine. In the paradoxes that occur when we try to apply human logic and language to that which transcends rational though, a person might believe that God is both a highly personal being and also present in all things.   In that context, in the realization of Guru Nanak, the Sikh Gurus, God is the “Akal Murat” or the reality that transcends time.

View of Human Nature

In Hinduism, the purpose of life is very straightforward. Humans ought to perform the right sacrifices to the gods. Hindu philosophy holds on to the belief that human beings are just microscopic creatures.  Ideally, how they came into being is not as important as what they are and even where they are going. As a result, Hinduism understanding of human nature and destiny is largely conditioned by the fundamental law referred to as karma.

View of Good & Evil

According to Hinduism, selfish actions are considered to be evil whereas selfless and sacrificial actions are seen as being good.

View of Salvation

In Hinduism, salvation refers to merging of soul with the universal soul. It ideally occurs when an enlightened human being is freed from the cycles of life and death.

View of After Life

Both Hinduism and Jainism pay little attention to the idea of life after death. However, according to one’s belief, the soul may life forever in a place of eternity.

Practices and Rituals

The spiritual expressions of Hinduism range from extreme asceticism to extreme sensuality, from the heights of personal devotion to a deity to the height of abstract philosophy from metaphysical proclamations of the oneness behind the material world to worship of images representing a multiplicity of deities. From a traditional perspective, there are well over 330 million deities in India. The feeling is that the divine has got countless faces.  

Celebrations & Festivals

Some of the notable celebrations and festivals in Jainism and Hinduism are Akshya, Pratyushan Parva, Kartik Purnima, Mahavir Jayanti, Diwali and Paush Dashami.
