This entry in The Teaching Company's series on major religions surveys the five-thousand-year history and development of Hindu spirituality and culture on the Indian subcontinent. Professor Muesse approaches the topic with a serious and straightforward presentational style. He's got a lot of ground to cover, and he keeps things moving, but the richness of the Hindu tradition means that he is able to address only the highlights of this colorful and fascinating spiritual tradition. Still, the set is a good introduction to topics such as the Rig Veda, reincarnation, karma, the caste system, the Bhagavad Gita, various Hindu gods and goddesses, and some of the multitudinous philosophical systems that fall under the umbrella of Hinduism.
