Class One: (and 2 sort of) Resources

Here is a good overview of Hinduism. See especially the Caste System.

Dr. Sponberg ususally teaches an intro course here at UM. You can see his lecture slides and links to other useful sites here.

Here are some images of the emaciated Buddha (depicting the hight of his asceticism) one, two.

Look at the links to the right to explore some of the traditions' websites. I'll be moving forward next week into the varying traditions. Feel free to 'comment' or email me with any questions. Best wishes and see you soon.
