Can Hinduism be simplified into dharma and yoga?
Please respond to the following:
Indian religions are complicated. There are thousands of deities, numerous scriptures, and indigenous tribal customs, all boiled down into what the English mistakenly called Hinduism in the 1800s.
Main discussion questions for the week:
- How does Dharma (pp. 72 and 110) and the yogas (pp. 88-93) simplify an understanding of this complexity?
- Which of these systems would you incorporate into your life today? Why?
- Explain why a guru would be necessary to help you understand these two systems.
