Benchmark – investigating hinduism essay | INT-244

  

If possible, interview a  practicing Hindu individual or a leader of a Hindu temple, which can be  used as an academic resource. If you would like to take pictures during  your visit to this community or place of worship, be sure to obtain  permission.

Write an essay of 1,250-1,500 words that analyzes key beliefs in Hinduism by addressing the following concepts:

  1. Describe  the three most important Hindu deities found in the Trimurti, their  history of development in the Vedic literature, and their functions in  the kalpic cycle of life.
  2. Make an analysis of how the caste  system might function in the life of a particular Hindu individual as he  or she interacts with individuals of other castes.
  3. Select one  ancient or modern Christian community living or serving in a Hindu  context, such as the St. Thomas Church of South India, denominations and  ministries started by William Carey, Mother Teresa’s Sisters of  Charity, etc. Compare the principles and practices of this Christian  community with the four key Hindu beliefs and practices: all pervasive  divinity, karma, reincarnation, and dharma.
  4. Taking into  consideration the differences between the four key Hindu beliefs and  practices and Christian doctrine, how might a Christian engage a  follower of Hinduism with the gospel of Jesus Christ? What would be  vital points to consider for such a conversation (e.g., Who God is, sin  and the fall, Jesus, forgiveness, salvation)?

Utilize the  course textbook and a minimum of four academic resources, one of which  can be your interview and should include topic materials and  external resources.
