In Kerala, which is situated in the southern tip of India, Hinduism is the principal belief system of the state's religiously diverse and historically broad-minded population. This program examines the multifaceted majority religion of India. Devotional ceremonies and observances of Hinduism and sacred Hindu literature, such as the Ramayana and the Mahabharata, are explored, as are some of the region's ornate temples. The Hindu emphasis on right living, or dharma, is discussed.
