The Hindu View of Poverty in Terms of Duty and Reincarnation

    Ron Green
    Monday, Feb. 24, 4:30 p.m.
    Lackey Chapel

Hinduism’s view on wealth and poverty can be understood in relation to its four goals of life: dharma (duty), artha (worldly prosperity), kama (enjoyment or pleasure) and moksha (liberation). While dharma encourages Hindus to work hard and earn money, it is also used to explain why people are born into different castes, each with its own social and economic conditions. Professor Ron Green from the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies will consider these issues.
