Socratic Circle #2


Socratic Circle #2 took place this past Friday at Big Walnut University. Students discussed the Vedas, the Epics, and the Upanishads

In 1500 BCE, the Aryans poured through the Khyber Pass and fanned out into the Subcontinent. With them, came Brahminical Hinduism (Hinduism dominated by the Brahmin caste). The following questions unleashed discourse:

1. If one embraces reincarnation, Is the caste system fair?

2. The Bhagavad-Gita stresses dharma (duty) and karma. Do you believe in either?
