OSHR 1068 - World Religions - Asia

  • Noncredit

This course is offered through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Colorado State University. You must be a member of Osher to enroll in this course.

As the world gets smaller, we must do our best to increase our understanding of the religious traditions of others, and of our own, if we are to do what we can to bring about a peaceful world.

We will seek, not to compare religions, but to understand them on their own terms in order to gain a better perspective on the wide range of beliefs and practices that exist in humanity. In this course, we will focus on the religions that originated in Asia (Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, Shinto, etc).
