About the Course

Until
recently, the wisdom of the world’s many religions existed in separate
silos blocked from other traditions by barriers of language, distance,
and slow communications. Now, more than at any time in history, this
collective wisdom is easily available to anyone with an internet
connection. But without a guide to this enormous wealth of information
and practice, we can quickly lose our way. 

In this course,
comparative religionist Kenneth Rose will be your guide in learning
about and practicing the religious and spiritual wisdom that  can change
your life and the life of your community. Taking his start from the
spiritual principles and practices outlined by noted investor  and
spiritual teacher Sir John Templeton in his book Wisdom from World
Religions: Pathways Toward Heaven on Earth, Kenneth Rose will trace
these teachings to their sources in the world’s major religions and show
you how you can put them into practice.

What You’ll Learn

This course provides clear and inspiring answers to many of life’s big questions:

Does life have an ultimate meaning?
Is science the ultimate guide to the deepest truth of life?
Does God, or a divine reality, exist?
What practices can bring God, or a divine reality, into your own experience?
Is death the end of life?
Course Learning Objectives

After taking this course, participants should be able to:

Identify the basic teachings of the world’s major active religious traditions.
Distinguish the different religions from each other.
Compare these religions in search of commonalties and differences.
Evaluate Sir John’s contributions to the study of spirituality.
Apply some of the spiritual practices suggested by Sir John Templeton
Assess claims about spiritual realities made by the various religions.

Readings from Sir John Templeton’s Wisdom from World Religions

“The
rich variety of world religions creates a tapestry of amazing beauty—a
testimony to the essential spiritual nature of our human visit on earth.
And yet, within this amazing and sometimes fascinating diversity can be
found an equally amazing unity” (WWR 56).
“The more we know about
the universe and our place in it, the more we realize how little we
know. So, in our ongoing search, we often look to the spiritual
teachings of the world religions to provide assistance in helping us
understand more of who and what we are and why we are here.” (WWR 5)
“Wisdom
from World Religions: Pathways toward Heaven on Earth is designed to
offer people of all ages and all nations an opportunity to learn a
little more about the spiritual laws, principles, and teachings of a
variety of great spiritual practices. I hope that in this book we can
offer a Scripture verse or story or parable or discipline or quote that
may show you the world in a way more helpful than you have seen it
before. The materials presented in this book can provide an opportunity
for learning and “growing in wisdom.” There are clear scriptural and
philosophical bases for advocating the need for an inquiring and open
mind. . . . Can the value in learning to see a different world lie not
in replacing the one you have, but in providing a basis for an
opportunity to see from a different, or larger, perspective? Can the
timeless universal principles of life that transcend modern times or
particular cultures help people in all parts of the world live happier
and more useful lives?” (WWR xxi).
“The publishing of this book is
accomplished with reverence and appreciation for the world religions
that purify a person’s mind and heart, elevate his emotions, and offer
guidance for a spiritual way of life. Much of the material contained
herein has been made possible by the sincere light of the prophets,
teachers, and traditions of the world’s great religions that, through
the ages, have expressed sacred insights and wisdom to humanity” (WWR
xxv).

“Who am I? Why am I here on planet Earth? What does the future
hold? How can I set out on my own into a world that sometimes seems
filled with conflict and strife? How can I get along better with the
people in my life? How do I cope with day-to-day pressures? How can I be
successful in my work? How do I find peace in the midst of turmoil? How
can my life be useful and happy?” (WWR 3).

About the Course

Until
recently, the wisdom of the world’s many religions existed in separate
silos blocked from other traditions by barriers of language, distance,
and slow communications. Now, more than at any time in history, this
collective wisdom is easily available to anyone with an internet
connection. But without a guide to this enormous wealth of information
and practice, we can quickly lose our way. 

In this course,
comparative religionist Kenneth Rose will be your guide in learning
about and practicing the religious and spiritual wisdom that can change
your life and the life of your community. Taking his start from the
spiritual principles and practices outlined by noted investor  and
spiritual teacher Sir John Templeton in his book Wisdom from World
Religions: Pathways Toward Heaven on Earth, Kenneth Rose will trace
these teachings to their sources in the world’s major religions and show
you how you can put them into practice.

What You’ll Learn

This course provides clear and inspiring answers to many of life’s big questions:

Does life have an ultimate meaning?
Is science the ultimate guide to the deepest truth of life?
Does God, or a divine reality, exist?
What practices can bring God, or a divine reality, into your own experience?
Is death the end of life?
Course Learning Objectives

After taking this course, participants should be able to:

Identify the basic teachings of the world’s major active religious traditions.
Distinguish the different religions from each other.
Compare these religions in search of commonalties and differences.
Evaluate Sir John’s contributions to the study of spirituality.
Apply some of the spiritual practices suggested by Sir John Templeton
Assess claims about spiritual realities made by the various religions.

Readings from Sir John Templeton’s Wisdom from World Religions

“The
rich variety of world religions creates a tapestry of amazing beauty—a
testimony to the essential spiritual nature of our human visit on earth.
And yet, within this amazing and sometimes fascinating diversity can be
found an equally amazing unity” (WWR 56).
“The more we know about
the universe and our place in it, the more we realize how little we
know. So, in our ongoing search, we often look to the spiritual
teachings of the world religions to provide assistance in helping us
understand more of who and what we are and why we are here.” (WWR 5)
“Wisdom
from World Religions: Pathways toward Heaven on Earth is designed to
offer people of all ages and all nations an opportunity to learn a
little more about the spiritual laws, principles, and teachings of a
variety of great spiritual practices. I hope that in this book we can
offer a Scripture verse or story or parable or discipline or quote that
may show you the world in a way more helpful than you have seen it
before. The materials presented in this book can provide an opportunity
for learning and “growing in wisdom.” There are clear scriptural and
philosophical bases for advocating the need for an inquiring and open
mind. . . . Can the value in learning to see a different world lie not
in replacing the one you have, but in providing a basis for an
opportunity to see from a different, or larger, perspective? Can the
timeless universal principles of life that transcend modern times or
particular cultures help people in all parts of the world live happier
and more useful lives?” (WWR xxi).
“The publishing of this book is
accomplished with reverence and appreciation for the world religions
that purify a person’s mind and heart, elevate his emotions, and offer
guidance for a spiritual way of life. Much of the material contained
herein has been made possible by the sincere light of the prophets,
teachers, and traditions of the world’s great religions that, through
the ages, have expressed sacred insights and wisdom to humanity” (WWR
xxv).
“Who am I? Why am I here on planet Earth? What does the future
hold? How can I set out on my own into a world that sometimes seems
filled with conflict and strife? How can I get along better with the
people in my life? How do I cope with day-to-day pressures? How can I be
successful in my work? How do I find peace in the midst of turmoil? How
can my life be useful and happy?” (WWR 3).

Video 1: Sir John Templeton’s Wisdom from World Religions

Theme: The Divinity of the World: “God-life moving through all”

A Spiritual Law from Sir John Templeton

“Regardless
of whatever situation that may be present, the factor of life —
god-life moving through all — is cause for thanksgiving and rejoicing”
(WWR 16).

Readings and Selections

Suggested Readings in Wisdom from World Religions:

W20, L5, 176-177

W33, L 2, 279-280

Relevant selections from Wisdom from World Religions

“Regardless
of whatever situation that may be present, the factor of life —
god-life moving through all — is cause for thanksgiving and rejoicing”
(WWR 16).
 “Universal intelligence — life energy or divinity — is not
static. Life itself reminds us that creativity is ever active,
ever-flowing. When we allow the universal energy to flow through us, are
we projecting ourselves into the ever-moving, harmonious wholeness of
spirit? It moves through us. It expresses itself through our minds and
our actions. The result is often a feeling of connection with all of
life. As we let the power of divine love flow through us, the path of
the unfolding soul becomes a joyous one” (WWR 271).
“Life is often
considered one of the greatest adventures imaginable. Perhaps in a
number of different ways, each of us can sense a deep mystery in being
alive. When an infant is born or when the death of a loved one brushes
close to us, the mystery of life becomes more personal and tangible. We
can behold the glory of divinity in a radiant sunset, in the sweet
warmth of spring rain, and in the flowering seasons of our days. We can
behold the glory of divinity in our daily lives” (WWR 279).
“You may have heard the expression that mankind came into the world to bring forth his God-likeness” (WWR 4).
“Is there a brightness to living that draws us onward in pursuit of increased usefulness? (WWR 280).
“. . . unlimited love . . . helps us recognize the sacred presence of spirit in everyone and everything” (WWR 307).

To compare these views with the teachings in the world’s religions about the divine character of life and of conscious beings.
Discussion Questions

Seeker

The phrase “god-life” seems to have been coined by John Templeton. How does that resonate with you?
How would you characterize Templeton’s religious views?
Proficient

Can you name some of the sources of Templeton’s distinctive spiritual views?
Does
Templeton’s use of words in this book like “creativity,” “god-life,”
“divinity,” “life energy,” and “universal intelligence” affect your
views of God or the ultimate reality as you understand it?
Adept

If life is an adventure, what is the goal?
If there is “a brightness to living” as Templeton suggests, how would you go about tapping into it?

Topic: Religion theology, and spirituality—what’s the difference?

Can a person be just religious or just spiritual?
Proficients

Can you name activates that are more religious than spiritual and vice versa?
How many distinctive spiritual practices can you name?

Can you categorize spiritual practices into at least two distinctive and nonoverlapping categories?
Does
