Heaven: How Five Religions See It

Throughout history, human beings have dreamed of heaven, built their lives around it, and even killed for their particular religion’s version of the hereafter. This program explores the concept of heaven according to some inspiring followers of Christianity, Buddhism, Islam, Judaism, and Hinduism. Viewers meet a Catholic priest working with gangs, an unusual Thai Buddhist monk, a Hindu priest who is also a hydraulics engineer, Sufi dervishes, and the remarkable Mountain Jews of Azerbaijan. The video includes expert commentary about the historical evolution of the notion of heaven. With Diana Eck, Harvard University professor of comparative religion; Alan Segal, Columbia University professor of religion; and Carol Zaleski, Smith College professor of world religions. (98 minutes)
