GANDHI

This is a picture of Gandhi and what he represented. This photo shows how much people respect him. If they didn't respect Gandhi they would have never made this painting. The person who made this wanted us to know how much of an impact Gandhi had on the people of India. I know this because it has one of his famous quotes next to his picture. This medium is useful because it shows how important he was to the Indian's of his time. I can tell because it says, ''Occupy Peace.'' As you can see, this photo is very important and is shows his influence in India.

RICKY WILLIAMS IS A HINDU

My source is oneindia news. I learned that he helped bring yoga to the NFL. It says, ''Welcoming well known American football player Ricky Williams to Hinduism fold''(oneindia news). He agrees with yoga being a practice routine. The purpose of the article was to inform people on what's going on. This article was made by oneindia news to inform people about how yoga is becoming apart of the NFL training. I chose it because it had all the information I needed. It explained the connections between Ricky Williams and Hinduism, it also told me much more. This article showed the relationship between sports and Hinduism. So, how can you make Hinduism apart of your life?

REINCARNATION

When you get reincarnated it is to believe that you get another life as a new person, maybe a human or an animal, even spiritual. In Hinduism they believe that reincarnation is extremely important when trying to reach moksha. They said that moksha cant be completed in only one life time. Moksha is when you have all good karma, when you complete every thing you were meant to do. You can either have good karma or bad karma, they believe your karma influences how your next life turns out.

KARMA

Karma is really important to people that follow Hinduism. They believe that your karma from your first life effects how your second life will turn out. They think if you have great karma your second life will be a lot better, but if your karma is bad your second life will be worse.
In Hinduism the have a theory of karma, it is a major thing for them. It says, ''all living creatures are responsibly of their karma''(Wikipedia). You have a choice it's not up to any one else how you want to act. They say it will reflect on your next life.
Karma is basically a cause and effect. If you do wrong, wrong will be done in your life. If you do something good something good will happen to you in return. It says,''karma is the universal principal of cause and effect''(Wikipedia).
There are different types of karma in Hinduism. Like sanchita karma, the sum total of past karma's yet to be resolved. Also, prarabdha karma, that portion of sanchita karma that is to be experienced in this life. Finally, kriyamana karma, the karma that humans are currently creating, which will bear fruit in future.
As you can see, Karma is taken very seriously by everyone who follow Hinduism.
