World View Chart Assignments

A world view is a fundamental or basic orientation of thinking – like a mindset – which guides a culture and / or a person’s life. Like a point of view, it can be built of concepts, ideas, values, emotions, and ethics. Weltanschauung is the German word for this idea. Your goal for this course is to understand the world views of these various religions. In order to prepare you for your final assignment, you will outline the world views of various religions in the chart below, adding to it each week.

For this assignment, students will complete the weekly area of the chart, filling in the aspects of each religion as it is presented in the readings and resources. This chart, when complete, will be the starting point for the written assignment, due in Week 10.

2.Identify key details and examples from the weekly resources to serve as a basis for the content being recorded in your chart.

The Hindu term “Brahma” is used to mean “vast.” This refers to vastness that is perceived by sages as
infinite dimensions of a Supreme Consciousness that started without any material and then subsequently it
became creation.
In Hinduism, each individual deity is understood as an embodiment of all aspects of the divine. In the
paradoxes that occur when we try to apply human logic and language to that which transcends rational
though, a person might believe that God is both a highly personal being and also present in all things. In
that context, in the realization of Guru Nanak, the Sikh Gurus, God is the “Akal Murat” or the reality that
transcends time.
In Hinduism, the purpose of life is very straightforward. Humans ought to perform the right sacrifices to
the gods. Hindu philosophy holds on to the belief that human beings are just microscopic creatures.
Ideally, how they came into being is not as important as what they are and even where they are going. As
a result, Hinduism understanding of human nature and destiny is largely conditioned by the fundamental
law referred to as karma.
According to Hinduism, selfish actions are considered to be evil whereas selfless and sacrificial actions
are seen as being good.
In Hinduism, salvation refers to merging of soul with the universal soul. It ideally occurs when an
enlightened human being is freed from the cycles of life and death.
Both Hinduism and Jainism pay little attention to the idea of life after death. However, according to one’s
belief, the soul may life forever in a place of eternity.
The spiritual expressions of Hinduism range from extreme asceticism to extreme sensuality, from the
heights of personal devotion to a deity to the height of abstract philosophy from metaphysical
proclamations of the oneness behind the material world to worship of images representing a multiplicity
of deities. From a traditional perspective, there are well over 330 million deities in India. The feeling is
that the divine has got countless faces.
Some of the notable celebrations and festivals in Jainism and Hinduism are Akshya, Pratyushan Parva,
Kartik Purnima, Mahavir Jayanti, Diwali and Paush Dashami.

There is no beginning of the world and neither does it have the ending but the present shape of the
universe is created by itself and it will be destoyed by its own.
In Buddshism, there is no existing God, it is rather an Enlightened being which is somehow a way of
rebellion from the materialism but there are no clear instruction that there is any entity like God.
In Bhuddism, the purpose of life is based upon the principle of “do good and have good” but there is no
one specific purpose mentioned, there are different views about the purpose of life: to do good to have
good rebirths, to escape from materialism, to become enlightened being.
In Buddhsim, the good is the act of connection for our inner soul and with other people by helping and
healing others while evil is a limitless desire for anything by any means.
Early salvation in Buddhsim was Nirvana but now salvation is working for humans through the eight...
