There is no single word in English that is the equivalent, but once one has read the Bhagavad-Gita and witnessed Arjuna's gradual recovery of his full stature as a warrior, the non-Hindu reader has an understanding of this difficult concept that simply cannot be learned in any other way. This is true of all the religions covered in this course. Each of them has special concepts peculiar to them-the concept of no soul in Buddhism, of the Tao in Taoism, of covenanting in Judaism, of incarnation in Christianity, of surrender in Islam--that can best be understood only in the context of the sacred writings in which they appear.Mostly aligned
