Podcast: Long Days and Short Nights for a Hindu Monk
Article: The Secular Face of Hinduism
Podcast: India’s Diverse Faiths, As Told Through “Nine Lives”
Describe at least two (2) ways that Hindu beliefs and religious practices are represented in contemporary Indian society.
The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:
Analyze what is meant by religion.
Analyze the similarities and differences in the primary beliefs held by major religious traditions and the cultures in which these religions evolved.
Describe the varieties of religious experience and practice in a wide range of cultures.
Recognize how daily life within various religions and current affairs are influenced by religion.
Develop written pieces that demonstrate an analysis of a topic relevant to the course.
Use technology and information resources to research issues in religion.
Write clearly and concisely about world religions using proper writing mechanics. With these, I would like to see 4-6 paragraphs, perhaps 1-2 pages. Start with an introduction that explains how you answer the week’s question. Also try to work in some background on the podcast and how credible you believe it to be. Give me 2-4 body paragraphs. Be sure to work in detailed reporting from the podcast, analysis what these details mean and what you think of these points. Remember that you have to report from the podcast, you do not have to agree with everything you hear or read. Add a brief conclusion with significance. One easy strategy is to consider how you can put this to work in your own life.
