Project #87331 - religion

1) Fill the chart out with your computer, NOT handwritten! 
2) Be concise! Your finished form for any particular religion should beNO MORE than one page in length.
  If you cannot concisely summarize material, you clearly don’t understand it.
3) Complete sentences are not necessary, but clarity, information accuracy, and correct spelling is; express your information concisely, but with enough detail to be meaningful. 
4) All religious traditions contain variety.  For example, Hinduism contains immense diversity.  You will not be able to show everything, but make certain you acknowledge key spots where variety exists.
5) Don’t leave ANY categories blank. If a particular tradition, does not deal with a category (which will be rare), indicate that. Many of these categories are closely connected; it is okay to point that out where appropriate.
 
6) When there are two religious traditions studied in one week, there must be a separate chart for EACH of them; separate charts will be provided.
7) Your textbook should be your primary source of info, although there will be some sections where you will need to supplement that.  DO NOT just copy information into the chart from other sources! 
 Recognize that a lot of websites will give strikingly slanted [and therefore inappropriate] information, so be very careful what you use. (For example, a website from a Christian organization is not likely to provide very accurate information about Hinduism!)
8) As you fill out the chart, try to recognize the connections between categories. 
 Each religious tradition “holds together”; the more you are able to point out the connections between categories, the stronger and more useful your chart will be.
9) You should keep a copy of each of these sheets (in addition to submitting them), so that you can do the paper in Week 10.

Below is a description of each category, and the kind of information it should contain on your chart:
Cosmogony – View of Origin of the universe: 
 Not all traditions will have a view of “creation,” whereas others will have multiple views. Some traditions consider the universe to have always existed; if so, indicate that.
View of the Nature of the Sacred (“God,” “gods,” “spirits,” “powers,” “Ultimate Reality,”… whatever term it uses):  “The Sacred” or “Ultimate Reality” may be described in a variety of ways. Some traditions refer to “God” or to various “gods,” whereas other traditions will avoid those terms altogether. Hinduism has numerous deities/gods, and thus you’ll want to indicate the major ones, but also give a sense of the diversity that is present, e.g., certain forms of Hinduism talk about NO “gods,” but only the non-personal sacred Reality of Brahman (which is NOT the same as the God “Brahma”); Jainism has a much
different way of talking about the Sacred, rather than in “God”-language. Don’t just name the term used, but deal with its characteristics.
View of Human Nature; Understanding of Humanity:   What are humans like? 
 What’s their chief purpose?
View of Good /Evil, Right/Wrong; Morality; Key Values:  How does this particular tradition guide people in living in a particular way?  How do people know what is “right” and what is “wrong”? 
 How should people treat each other?
View of “Salvation,” “Fulfillment,” “Attainment of Life’s Purpose”:  Treat all these terms as roughly equivalent, since not all religions talk about “salvation.”  However, all do
have some sense of what it means for people to attain or fulfill life’s purpose.
View of death and “afterlife” (if any):  Not all religions will talk about an “afterlife” as the result of fulfilling life’s purpose (in the previous category).  For some religions (such as Hinduism), notice that reincarnation is NOT the equivalent of an “afterlife”; if a person is reincarnated, that is a sign that the person did not fulfill life’s ultimate purpose.  Attaining that purpose will result inescaping
the cycle of rebirth.
Key Practices and Rituals: 
 What activities are most characteristic of a person or group who participates in this religious tradition?
Celebrations and Festivals:  What celebrations and observances mark key points during the year/month/week?
