Hinduism has never developed a formal hierarchy such as that found in Roman Catholicism or Shi’a Islam.

-Guru-

Teacher and guardian of tradition.

-Priest-

Keeping ritual practices in tact within the family and at the temple.

slide6

Salvation/ Damnation

Some Hindus describe something known as Antarloka, or ‘in-between realm’. For those who have died, it is a temporary place for souls suffering from the effects of bad karma or for those approaching liberation where one can acquire knowledge that will help them in the next life. Those who have achieved Moksha reside in the highest level of Antarloka.

slide7

Hindus are not required to go on pilgrimages, however many do.

The reason is due to the fact that most Hindus believe their sins will be washed away if they bathe in one of India’s holy rivers.

A popular time to do this is during a religious festival held once every 12 years known as the Maha Kumbh Mela.

-Holi-

Celebrates Indian grain harvest in early spring. The name comes from the destruction of demoness Holika.
