Indian Religion - Referat

Frage: Indian Religion - Referat
(1 Antwort)


Ich muss morgen in Englisch ein Referat über "Indian Religion" halten und habe dafür eine Folie mit Stichpunkten zu den verschiedenen Religionen vorbereitet.

Könnte sich das vielleicht mal jemand schnell durchlesen? Mich interessiert ob ihr anHand dieser Stichpunkte versteht worum es geht, Rechtschreib- und Grammatikfehler dürfen natürlich trotzdem verbessert werden :)
Vielen Dank im Voraus.

- The Rig Veda, Upanishads and the Bhagwad Gita: sacred text of the Hindus
- Not one particular deity, numerous gods and goddesses:
- the trinity of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva - creator, preserver and destroyer
- Brahma has four heads corresponding to the four directions of the compass, creator of life and the entire universe
- Vishnu is the preserver who guides the cycle of birth and rebirth, saves the world from evil forces.

- Shiva, usually seen with a coiled cobra around his neck, destroys all evil
- festivals and ceremonies associated not only with gods and goddesses, also with the sun, moon, planets, rivers, oceans, trees and animals
