H210: Hindu Mythology and Indian Philosophy in Splash 2013 (Apr. 06, 2013)
If you've ever been interested to learn more about the oldest of the all of the world's major religions, you should enroll for this course. As an Indian and a secular Hindu, I am very eager to provide other people of an insight into a defining feature of India's past, present, and future - Hinduism. Although, India today is a modern and secular republic, Hinduism has a played a vital role in shaping its history, and has heavily influenced the inherent unique outlook that Indians have on the world. The course aims to provide a brief outlook on the origin of the religion, its basic tenants and scriptures.
