Hinduism: mysteries of eastern religion

Sunday, Aug. 14, at 1 p.m., and on second Sundays of the month throughout the year, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will continue our Adult Religious Exploration.

The frame for the exploration will be the Six Sources, which support the Seven Principles of Unitarian Universalism.  

The fourth principle of Unitarian Universalism is “A free and responsible search for truth and meaning.”  The third source is the reservoir that funds that principle: “Wisdom from the world’s religions which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life.”  

The Aug. 14 program will be on Hinduism and the ancient traditions of India.  Hinduism is the predominant and indigenous religious tradition of the Indian Subcontinent.  Known to its followers as “the eternal law,” that sustains, upholds and preserves the world.  Hinduism is characterized by the view that all seemingly opposing beliefs or energies are all aspects of one eternal truth.  Hindus strive for liberation from earthly evils. 

Throughout this year-long exploration we will learn about religious and spiritual traditions from around the world that have shaped the spiritual paths of many who also desire to explore Unitarian Universalism.   These religious explorations will be led by Director of Religious Exploration and Programs at UU, Julie Loar, and there is a $10 suggested donation.  All are welcome.  Participants are invited to bring a brown bag lunch.
