Spotlight on Hinduism

Making Our Way Through the World Religions

This survey of world religions we have embarked on started when someone asked the basic question, “What’s the difference between Religion X and Religion Y?”  There are many ways we could possibly approach that question.  The one we chose is to learn more about each of the major world religions by using the same yardstick for objective comparison. 

On the first Saturday of each month we will seek to discover:  

1.  Does the faith in question profess a divine power or God?  If so, what is the divine power like?  

2.  What is the faith’s take on man?  What is his nature and what is his purpose?

3.  What does the faith have to say about the physical world?  

4.  What is the faith’s core teaching (that is, what makes its adherents tick i.e. what are they looking forward to) summarized in a few sentences. 

You are encouraged to bring your own questions and if you know folks of any of these faiths, bring them with you!  I think it will add to the discussion and also bring folks of different backgrounds to the group.

    Sorry for the delay! I've been under the weather. I hear y'all. I was also disappointed by the cafe on Saturday. The thing is we've been there in a large group before and haven't had this problem before. I was thinking we give it one more go and if it doesn't work move on to another location. Sound ok?

    Some in your group may be interested in this Mathematical Proof of Something. And the math is easy to follow.

      I agree with Steven. If, e.g., the same conclusions could be calculated with Sanksrit then I would be blown away.

      the lovely symmetry is another proof for me that nature and supernature are intelligible. Thanks Jeffrey for sharing!

    Bali was an excellent choice to share about the Hindu faith. He, not only knows his faith, but he knows how to present it in manner that was both informative and engaging yet non-dogmatic. Kudos to Lensi for inviting him and his wife, Indu.

      I also agree that Bali was a very good "get". Fascinating talk.

      I was wondering where you went Eduardo. I was also having a difficult time hearing him and I was much closer. Do we need another venue?
