Part One: The worldview I have to write about is Hinduism. One interesting fact about Hinduism is that it has no founder, no timeline.
· The Questions of Origin: Hindus believe that God and the universe are one or the same thing. “Pantheism views God as an infinite, impersonal force (Weider &Gutierrez, 56). They do believe in God but they don’t believe that he is the created of anything that everything was already here before he came.
· The Question of Identity: “Pantheists consider all life to be sacred or spiritual” (Weider & Gutierrez, 57). They don’t believe in Heaven but in Nirvana and for a man to achieve this they must have good karma throughout their life. “Karma is basically the idea the ‘what goes around, comes around’ ” (Weider & Gutierrez, 58). Hinduism they belief that humans and animals are basically consider the same for eternal life.
· The Question of Meaning/Purpose: Life is view “Like a dream or a mirage our life and everything around us does not really exists as we know it” (Weider & Gutierrez, 60). “The purpose of man is to understand that life and all that seems to be real is an illusion” (Weider & Gutierrez, 60). Everything all falls back into Karma regarding having a positive effect in your life cycle.
· The Question of Morality: The way you treat others and even animal is based on God is everything and everything is God. “ Man’s action will return to him or her (Karma) , and it is up to the individual to determine what those actions should be and how they should be carried out” (Weider & Gutierrez ,62). Everything is based on Karma because everything interlocks with each other to decide your destiny.
· The Question of Destiny: “They believe that the choice they make while on this earth will have direct effect on their future eternal state” (Weider & Gutierrez 64). If you achieve the highest Karma which is called Brahman you are closer to reach Nirvana but if you have bad karma you might be reborn
