Asian and Abrahamic Religions: A Divine Encounter in America
This 2-part documentary explores the beliefs, practices and rituals of Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism. It offers an in-depth look at the differences and surprising similarities among the Asian religions and the "Abrahamic" faiths of Christianity, Judaism and Islam. Also examined are the challenges of interfaith marriage, the younger generation's struggle to reconcile their families' traditional expectations with the desire to forge their own identity, and the difficulties in maintaining one's cultural and religious heritage in a largely Judeo-Christian environment.
