Covered here in 9:52 minutes:

In this episode, we learn about the Hindu worldview, and how it sees all other religions in her context.

"To the question, “What kind of world do we have?” Hinduism answers:

  • A multiple world that includes innumerable galaxies horizontally, innumerable tiers vertically, and innumerable cycles temporally.
  • A moral world in which the law of karma is never suspended.
  • A middling world that will never replace paradise as the spirit’s destination.
  • A world that is maya, deceptively tricky in passing off its multiplicity, materiality, and dualities as ultimate when they are actually provisional.
  • A training ground on which people can develop their highest capacities.
  • A world that is lila, the play of the Divine in its Cosmic Dance—untiring, unending, resistless, yet ultimately beneficent, with a grace born of infinite vitality."
