The so-called “eastern” religions offer a stark contrast, in many ways, to the dominant monotheisms of the “western world.” Ideas like karma, samsara, reincarnation, nirvana, flow, energy, and more present a very different view of reality and of human experience than is offered in the west. In this course, we will explore the central concepts of Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism, Confucianism, Taoism, and Shinto. Our goal is to not only understand both the basic histories and concepts of these traditions, but to grow in our appreciation of their unique contributions to the world’s religious landscape.
