Lesson Nine: Magic & Religion Part 2 Study Guide

Chapter 12

This lesson is not included in the final exam. This is just interesting information about the Buddhism & Hinduism religions.


In the fourth to sixth centuries (BCE), the religion was from India & was popular in central, eastern, & western Asia. It relies on the Four Central Truths & Dukkha. Nirvana is when a person has real joy & happiness. Once a person has reached Nirvana, you have completed the Four Central Truths.

Dukkha is the first.
Samsara is the second.
Karma is the third.
Liberation is the fourth.


This religion has four denominations. Vaishnavism & Shaivism believe in one god; Shiva. Shaktism & Smartism believe in multiple gods & goddesses. Dharma, Artha, Kama, & Moksha are the important Purusarthas. Hinduism spells were made by songs & mantras. They are good at charms, conjurations, & enchantments that are protective.

Dharma is the ambition of religious duties, moral values, & true behavior.
Artha is the desire for wealth, a healthy life, & financial comfort.
Kama is the joy of life.
Moksha is liberation & rebirth.
