Asian and Abrahamic Religions: A Divine Encounter in America
To many Americans, the Asian religions remain full of mystery. Yet the presence of the Asian religions has been taking root on American soil almost from the country’s beginning. Over time, Asian religious practices began to influence and transform everyday life for Americans who discovered Yoga, meditation, martial arts and healing.
The Asian & Abrahamic Religions explores the beliefs, practices and rituals of Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism and Jainism. Co-directors Gerald Krell and Meyer Odze examine the similarities and differences between these Asian and the Abrahamic religions, and how practitioners of all these faiths perceive each other, confront prejudice and stereotypes and develop mutual respect.
