Asking the Big Questions 

Are you fascinated by the big questions regarding the mystery of existence? Do you love to reflect on the role of spiritual practice? Are you interested in Asian religions and philosophies? Do you want to shake the dust-off old assumptions and broaden your perspective? Then this course is for you! Take a birds-eye-view of the primary religious movements birthed and nurtured within the Indian subcontinent. Become acquainted with the foundational tenets, philosophical heritage, and the metaphysical views held within Buddhism, various schools of "Hinduism" (including Yoga), Jainism, and Sikhism.  This study plan is great for all levels, a good place to begin researching these topics or expanding on your established knowledge base.
