India: A Journey of Discovery and Understanding

 

India is a place of striking contrasts – wealth and poverty, hi-tech and ancient, urban overcrowding and rural serenity. The most striking, though, of all India’s contrasts is the country’s diverse array of religious beliefs and practices. Join Osher Lifelong Learning Executive Director, Kim Beck, on a journey to the heart of northern India where many of the world’s major religions intersect.

Along the way, visit the sacred places of the world’s oldest organized religion, Hinduism, including Varanasi along the Ganges River; the ashrams of Rishikesh; the striking Laxmi Marayan Temple in Delhi; and Mathura, birthplace of Lord Krishna. Discover the rich, Islamic heritage of India – the second largest Muslim country in the world. In Lucknow, experience the elegant Bara Imambara; Delhi’s Jama Masjid, one of the world’s largest mosques; and the not-to-be missed Taj Mahal – the greatest love story ever built. Experience Sarnath, the place where Buddha first preached Dharma after his enlightenment and a sacred site for Buddhist pilgrims; the Baha’i Lotus Temple, one of the most remarkable buildings in all of India; and the Golden Temple of Amritsar, the sacred site revered through the endless prayer and song by Sikhs. A special feature of the tour will be the frequent opportunities for presentations and interactions with devotees of each religious practice.
