Discover some of the core tenets of Hinduism as experienced in Varanasi, one of India’s holiest cities, in this video adapted from Sacred Journeys with Bruce Feiler. The Hindu religion is difficult to describe because it does not have a single founder, text, or set of beliefs. Rather, it is characterized by an overlapping set of practices, cultural values, and norms. The main purpose of human life is to get closer to God so that one’s soul can be released from a cycle of human suffering, death, and rebirth and achieve unity with the divine. This resource is part of the Sacred Journeys with Bruce Feiler Collection.
