The Eternal Cycle of All Life
(Liberation from Samsara)
Karma is the force that states "Whatever goes around comes around" meaning that what you do will come back to you sometime in a later life or this life.
Dharma is also known as the principle of cosmic order. This means that everything has a principle, providing everything with a basis. But it isn;t just cosmic order, it's also personal order, and it is a person's duty to maintain their personal order by doing their duty (Dharma).

The seven central beliefs of Hinduism
I hate it when people end their prezis like this
(Supreme Cosmic Force)
Brahmins - The priests
Khastriyas - The warriors
Vaishyas - Metchants and landowners
Shudras - The servants to those
above them in the caste system
Samsara can be translated to "The endless round of birth, death, and rebirth to which all conditioned beings are subject"
The Dalit - Called the untouchables,
they're the lowest of the low
Moksha is the escape of Samsara, basically meaning that one is no longer in the cycle of birth and death.
-Beyond the body, thoughts, and feelings
-a fragment of the divine Brahman
-Beyond the physical body, Atman is the soul
- Seeing things as seperate from eachother
- Not seeing the divinity in everything
- living in self imprisonment, ignorance to what is around you, and distraction from
what is truly important
- the power that sustains the universe and flows through everything
- the whole universe is one conscious entity, consciousness is everything
- humans are conscious, and therefore
"the self is Brahman", we are one
How does Samsara
relate to the other central beliefs of Hinduism?
Samsara and Moksha are related directly as Moksha is the freedom from the reborth cycle of Samara.
Karma is fundamentally rooted in
Samsara, as who/what you are reborn
into revolves around Karma.
How does Moksha
relate to the other central
beliefs of Hinduism
Moksha relates to Karma directly as to achieve Moksha a person must have perfect Karma (live a life of
religious devotion and moral
Dharma relates to Moksha inderectly
through Karma, as Dharma determines Karma. A person's Dharma is their duty and doing your duty results in good Karma. See previous bubble on Karma.

Dharma relates to samsara as it determine's one's Karma
How does Karma relate to the other central beliefs of Hinduism?
How does Dharma relate to the other central beliefs of Hinduism?
How does Brahman
relate to the other central beliefs of Hinduism
Maya is directly related as it is the denial of the Brahman that is in all things. It is being unable to see how Brahman brings everything together
Atman also relates directly to
Brahman. Atman is the true divine self, and is the fragment
of Brahman that is in us.
How does Maya relate to the other central beliefs of Hinduism?
Samsara and Moksha
Atman and Moksha go hand in
hand and are achieved at the breakig
of the cycle of Samsara.
Maya and Dharma are related as Maya is the distraction from the truly important things in life, such as one's
How does Atman relate
to the other central beliefs of Hinduism?
How does the caste system relate to the other central beliefs of Hinduism?
The basis of the caste system revolves around Samsara
and Karma (next bubble). Yore reincarnated into the
caste you belong in. The higher classes in the caste
system are occupied by people who have been remorn
twice through the cycle of Samsara.
Karma is also rooted into the fundaments of the caste system as Karma determines what caste you are born into. The better your Karma in your previous life, the higher the caste you are born into.
The 5 castes (highest to lowest)
Dharma and the caste system are also related as it is a person's duty to act within their caste ("know their place")
