Twelve thirty-minute lectures covering the Hindu religion. Hinduism is the world's oldest living religious tradition, with roots deep in the ancient cultures of the Indus Valley civilization and the Aryan society from Central Asia, which combined to create a highly diverse family of religions and philosophies. Topics explored in detail include the sacred scripture the Veda, transmigration of the soul, reincarnation, and karma. Hinduism can be both monotheistic and polytheistic, and systems of social stratification and gender relations developed during the classical phase of Hindu culture strongly influence the present day. Hinduism is varied, affirming the multiplicity of both the divine and the paths to divine reality.
