Hinduism, the world's oldest and most complex religion, can be a great challenge for outsiders to comprehend. The Hindu tradition embraces polytheism and monotheism, iconography and iconoclasm, social stratification and spiritual equality. This vast spectrum of beliefs and practices defies simple classification and easy understanding.

Dr. Mark W. Muesse, chair of the Department of Religious Studies at Rhodes College and author of The Teaching Company lecture series on Hinduism, will address these issues in a talk for the Memphis Freethought Alliance. Dr. Muesse will discuss the diversity of Hindu practices and beliefs as well as the principles that most Hindus hold in common.

Our lectures are FREE and OPEN to the public!
