Narrated by Ben Kingsley, each installment in the Religions of the World series offers an in-depth investigation into the practices and theology of a major world religion. Through interviews with experts, examination of artifacts, and dramatic reenactments, the major facets of these faiths are brought to light and explicated. In this particular video, the major belief system of India is profiled. Practiced by nearly a billion people, Hinduism encompasses traditions and beliefs as varied as the Indian subcontinent it dominates.
