Reading Schedule

We have chosen to begin with the undisputed five major religions of the world. Judaism (represented by the Old Testament of the Bible and then further reading more specific to Judaism), Christianity (represented by the New Testament of the Bible), Islam (represented by the Quran and then the Hadiths), Hinduism (represented by the 18 Puranas), and Buddhism (represented by a variety of Buddhist text, in the first rotation we will read the entirety of Dhammapada).
