Explore Hinduism via The Rig Veda, Upanishads, Bhagavad-Gita, and Ramayana; Buddhism via The Wheel of Life (story of Siddhartha), and Dhammapada; Confucianism via the Analects, I-Ching, and Tao Te-Ching (an off-shoot of Confucianism).

This sacred literature course explores works from the East that describe the acceptance of a relationship between the cosmos and life on earth. Students are introduced to common themes found in selections from the literature of three major Eastern religions. Students will compare the sacred works according to themes such as creation, life challenges, the fall of man, divine punishment, the rewards of virtue, and the power of love.

“Astrology got it right, what’s wrong with the rest of the world?” quipped a well-known astrologer when discussing the connection between sacred literature and the common phrase, “As above, so below.” This has been a phrase understood by every astrologer from ancient to modern times. Indeed, the concept has roots in much of the world’s sacred literature.
