7 History Hinduism has no single founder, but originated from the mixing of Harappan and Aryan cultures in ancient India around 1500 BCE. Hindus believe in one unifying spirit, Brahman. Brahman can manifest in many, polytheistic, forms or in one, monotheistic.
8 Read the following primary source about the Brahman (textbook page 67) and answer the following questions in your handout. 1. How does the document describe the Brahman? 2. After reading this passage, do you believe Hinduism is polytheistic or monotheistic? Use the text to support your answer.
9 Beliefs Hinduism is based on the concept of reincarnation. Spirits return to earth many times in different forms trying to become one with Brahman. The soul moves up or down a hierarchy depending on their behavior in life. A person moves closer to Brahman by obeying the law of karma. Karma is the sum of all your deeds, good and bad. Good deeds involve following your dharma, or duties dependent on your position, gender and occupation. Moksha, or being released from the cycle of rebirth, is the ultimate goal for Hindus.
10 The caste system (outlawed since 1948) was an important part of Hinduism. Castes are social classes into which a person is born and lives their entire life. If a person has good karma, they may be reincarnated into a higher caste. This life Born into a caste Next life Good Karma Higher caste Bad Karma Lower caste
11 The caste system separated Indian society into distinct social classes in which everyone knew their place. They believed that if they followed the dharma of their caste & had good karma, they would be reincarnated into a better caste.
