Hinduism at the Valley Hindu Temple
Transcript of Hinduism at the Valley Hindu Temple
This is the Valley Hindu Temple from the Outside
Where you put your shoes before you enter the temple
It is a sign of respect to take off your shoes and not make the temple dirty
Websites we used
-the temples were built with icons of the Gods, just like the crucifix for Christians
- the Gods would come down, like Jesus, and if the temples were built and enshrined properly, the Gods presence could be felt
-the plan of the Hindu temple is based on a geometry where the temple is envisioned as the Great Mandala which was a shape where a square and a circle meet
-the square symbolizes the Earth and the circle symbolizes eternity

Cows are considered sacred to Hindus, they don't eat beef. Cows were gifts to brahmins (high priest) and killing cows were equal to killing brahmins.
The Om Symbol
It is one of the most sacred symbols in Hinduism
Hindus consider Om to be the universal name of the Lord and that it encompasses all of creation
Shiva is the God of destruction of evil things (Fact: Ishan as a name for Shiva)
5 Beliefs of Hinduism
1. Hindus believe in a one, all-pervasive Supreme Being who is both immanent and transcendent, both Creator and Unmanifest Reality.
2. Hindus believe in the divinity of the four Vedas, the world's most ancient scripture, and venerate the Agamas as equally revealed. These primordial hymns are God's word and the bedrock of Sanatana Dharma, the eternal religion.
3. Hindus believe that the universe undergoes endless cycles of creation, preservation and dissolution.
4. Hindus believe in karma, the law of cause and effect by which each individual creates his own destiny by his thoughts, words and deeds.
5. Hindus believe that the soul reincarnates, evolving through many births until all karmas have been resolved, and moksha, liberation from the cycle of rebirth, is attained. Not a single soul will be deprived of this destiny.
It is believed that these nine
planetary deities influence human lives and is responsible for all
good or bad times, one faces in life.
