Traditions of south asia
Indic world view
A whole different way of looking at the world, our relationship to the world and
others
Indic world view:
1. Anladi: literally means ‘without beginning. it refers to the way the universe
works. It moves constantly, internally, the universe is always flowing but always
changes, so we see transformation both dramatically and slightly.
2. Kala: the movement of time. (Western: time begins when the universe begins.
God created both.) The south Asian tradition understands time in a different way.
As the universe going, time moves in a wave-like pattern. Sometimes the physical
universe is degenerating, sometimes evolving, According to this pattern. The
moral, spiritual movement is sometimes up and other times down. -------------Jain
understanding
Time moves in cyclical pattern. The physical and moral movement emerge,
evolves, matures and goes down, setting the next development and is eventually
destroyed. The universe is ‘created’ in one moment and then evolves in a certain
pattern. Once it reaches its peak, it degenerate again. Before the final destroy, it
starts the next cycle. Its self-destructive. Each of the cycles is divided into 4
different phases. These phases are called Yuga. ---------Hindu
understanding
Yuga---age:
1
st
stage: Human are physically and morally clean, uncor rupted. The world is
without disease, famine and people have a long life span. Also, there is no hatred,
jealousy, etc. people have a clear and penetrating insight and thus our minds are
sharp and we can understand each other clearly.
2
nd
stage: Our behavior starts to degenerate a little bit. There are increasing self-
serving behavior and there becomes illness, disease, conf lict in the world.
3
rd
stage: negative things both morally and physically become more
4
th
stage:
Kali Yuga---
the age of distress phase, the physical and moral bottom of
the cycle. This is where we are now and is characterized by conf licts, distress,
amenity, hatred, self-interest, rivalry, etc.
3. Samsara: The nature of worldly experience. It is the assumption that this
constant movement of time is marked by a sense of stress, distress, anxiety and
even suffering. And hence the worldly experience is inherently unsatisfactory.
Because of the constant change, the world cannot provide lasting happiness and
peace. The world is conducive of struggling and pain, and thus troubling.
4. punarjanma: literally means rebirth. The assertion is that people are integra l
parts of the world and it is their actions keep the movement of time going. We
wear our body so we do not die when our body dies. We will move onto another
body and we begin another life circle: birth, growth, matur ity and death.
---------basic assumption of Indic tradition. We can inhabit different for ms.
