Religious Traditions of India
The primary Indian religious tradition, the Hinduism originated in the unknown antiquity of the past, evolved over thousands of years and remains as the major faith in India. Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism grew out of Hinduism and spread over Asia. The lectures will discuss the concept of divinity (God), mortal life (karma and cycle of rebirth) and afterlife (moksha) within these traditions and how they differ from the Abrahamic faiths (Judaism, Christianity and Islam). The discussions will be on the philosophy and historic evolution along with the contemporary Indian religious and social landscape. Venkat Lakshminarayanan identifies with the Hindu religion, was born in India and has lived in the United States for the last fifty years. He worked for Ford Motor Company as an Automotive Engineer.
