This course consists of two (online) meetings, held on Friday evening.
In the first session we will focus on our Divine origins and the cycle of life. Key concepts we will learn about and discuss in this meeting are the existential view of reality, spirituality, the Four Phased life, the Four life goals, and holistic wellbeing.
During the second meeting we will further expand our knowledge and explore the Hindu worldview. We will do this by learning about the importance of embodied knowing and oral traditions, living lineages, and an overview of Hindu scriptures. We will also discuss Karma, the concepts of righteousness and happiness, the ideas behind rituals and festivals, and the Hindu view on charity.
Supplementary you take self-assessment quizzes. In order to receive a certificate, you also need to accomplish the accompanying assignment.
Everyone who is interested in understanding the Hindu worldview and wants to explore how this is positioned in his own way of life is welcome to join.
The fee for each participant is €150,-. Sponsored participants pay a fee of €250,-. It is also possible to attend this course without aiming for the certificate; in that case the fee is lowered to €50,-.
A maximum of 8 participants can join this course.
Coordinating teachers are prof. Dr. Sharda S. Nandram and dr. Puneet K. Bindlish.
