Hinduism – Sure It Is A Religion

Hinduism – Sure It Is A Religion

 

It does not help Vedics when they say Vedic dharma (Hinduism, Vedic dharma, varna-aashram dharma, whatever you call it, whose root is the Veda and Bhagavad Gita) is not a religion. Why, because:

  1. The world has a few religions, and Hinduism can become an outcast on the matter or religions.
  2. All constitutions of the world countries, have laws addressing “religion”, and it does not serve Vedic interest if a constitution cannot address Hinduism as a religion.
  3. Vedic is universal religion for mankind because any human of any race, country, time, or skin color, or back ground, can advance spiritually by living per dharma (doing a chosen yog practice in life.) Spiritual advancement is something that cannot take away anyone’s freedom, life, property, women, land, dignity or honor, or freedom of movement. Also, all Vedic dharma practice are eco-friendly. Any mal-practice of dharma must be stopped.
  4. Every religion influences how one lives; so, it can be argues that every religion is provides a way of life. E.g. Xian way of life is different than that of Hindus or Muslims. So, Hindu also is a religion, but is universal.
  5. Below are dictionary’s definitions of the word “religion,” and Hinduism or the Vedic dharma meets those definitions.
  • The belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or gods.
  • A particular system of faith and worship.
  • A set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe, especially when considered as the creation of a superhuman agency or agencies, usually involving devotional and ritual observances, and often containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs.
  • A specific fundamental set of beliefs and practices generally agreed upon by a number of persons or sects.
  • Something one believes in and follows devotedly
  • There are many religions, such as Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, and Judaism. – Source: https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/religion

Therefore, it is my prayer that no Hindu says “Hinduism is not a religion.”

Yes, it is not exclusive, history-centric or dogmatic like Islam, Xianity and Judaism are; but that is because they are not universal and Vedic dharma is universal. A short article at below link lists all universal criteria for judging a religion universal.

I welcome your disagreement on any point, if there is; and also, if I missed any universal criteria that I should include in the article.

More and more Hindus and others understand this the better for the Hindus and Hindustan.

In this info age people have less time; and poor people’s all time goes in earning a living. So, for all the people Bhagavad Gita is sufficient to know what is Vedic dharma. After knowing it, people should strive to practice a chosen yog to advance spiritually. Movies or Ramayan, Mahabharat, and the Vedic saints, could help a lot for knowing what dharma is, God is, etc.

Please share with others the points you agree; and I will be glad to clarify further any point if it seems not agreeable. Also, to work together for a higher cause it is not necessary to have complete agreements on every points to the lowest detail. So, no problem if some disagreement remains.

As received

I agree with Hamid Ansari.

“Muslims were always unsafe in India once Babar felt so unsafe he demolished Ram Mandir and built Babri mosque on it.

In 1705 two sons ( 6yr & 9yr ) of Guru Gobind Singh were bricked alive for haunting poor and unsafe Mughals.

Unsafe peaceful Muslims once skinned alive Sambhaji, son of Shivaji, for not converting.

In 1675 unsafe Aurangzeb beheaded 9th Sikh Guru right in the center of Delhi for not converting to RoP

Jinnah was unsafe in India and thus broke India into 3 pieces and created Pakistan.

In 1990 Kashmiri Muslims killed and drove out Kashmiri Pandits from Kashmir for making them feel unsafe

Once Passengers singing Bhajans in Sabarmati Express were torched alive by unsafe Peacefuls at Godhra.

Poor Muslim kid Mohammed Afroz who raped Nirbhaya was only given Sewing Machine & Rs. 10,000 shows insecurity of poor Muslims in India.

May be Kerala Muslims joined ISIS coz they feel scared of living in India

Muslims in India are so scared that they end up becoming President, VP, PM, Ministers.

Now they need separate planes for hajj too”

If Hamid Ansari Is Right then Why don’t Muslim shift to a safe place created for them by Nehrus and Gandhis of India after getting our people killed and our ancestral lands snatched?

ENQUIRY ON DESERTIONS, AND PARTITION

 

“Don’t beat the dead snake!”, said my learned Hindu friend with his back towards the enemy.

He meant “Don’t harp on Partition. Forget it, and those who were killed are no more worth a fig!”

 

Yes, it is agonizing for most to confront a situation that is beyond our might to correct, or improve. Frustration mounts and finally one says, “Leave me alone. Delete my name from your list!”

 

But the more names we delete the worse gets the situation. The distant fires are approaching our house, too, however secular, celebrated or sophisticated we may be!

 

Recall the fate of such “superior bodies”, doctors, professors, millionaires and Excellencies, even “sants, sadhus and mahatmas” in Rawalpindi and Noakhali! ALAS, those who were meant to remind us are all “jackals and rats “with total memory loss! To most Akhand Bharat is already like a “dead snake”!

History’s countless Tsunamis have decapitated the Hindus and taken away the collective Head to deep depths. With that, “sank” the bonding, the unity, the collective response & responsibility- and the instinct of retaliation!

 

Hindus have to recreate that absent HEAD, stand united against threats to our existence. The threat to Hindus, collectively and individually, mounts in direct proportion to the number of desertions from the ranks!

 

If this situation is acceptable then we can foresee the fate of Delhi like that of Lahore and Karachi. But if this situation is unacceptable, that is, if we think we cannot surrender any more souls and LAND to our enemies, then what to do?

 

The question is relevant since while the Hindus are not interested in anybody’s religion, it is the missionaries and the maulvis who feel upset and provoked on seeing a Hindu. He/she is perceived a challenge to all what they stand, and trained, for!

 

Competition among the mullahs and missionaries is intense for the minds and souls of the confused & vulnerable Hindus.

 

In this respect we can compare two countries, Afghanistan and Bharat. In the former one needs a magnifying glass to spot a missionary or mahatma while in the latter they are growing and spreading like the mushrooms.

 

Finally, our enemies (a lot more than our friends!) have seen that the Hindus show NO interest in recovering the TERRITORY captured from them nor wish to recover the abducted and converted sisters and brothers who have gone over to the enemy side.

 

This apathy, neutrality and secularism boosts their zeal and enthusiasm to convert even more Hindus and capture even more territory of the Hindus (Bharat).

All this is worth thinking about if we wish to save the present borders, however ludicrous & ridiculous they are!

One more thought for all: If a lorry falls down the ravine in Himachal Pradesh, (notorious for bad roads!), a Court of Enquiry is immediately appointed to look into the circumstances, and to make recommendations on how to avoid similar mishaps in the future.

 

Surely Lahore and Dhaka were more than a lorry falling down the “khud” (ravine)! Yet NO court of enquiry has ever been convened as to how it (Partition) happened and HOW SUCH DISASTERS CAN BE PREVENTED IN THE FUTURE!

 

Even the cleverest Hindus seem to believe that BY SHUTTING THE EYES THE CAT DISAPPEARS!

 

Reason? Mental paralysis of the Hindu nation. When given the choice, “Gandhi or Bharat?”, and “Nehru or Hindus”? most Hindus will jump up with alacrity untypical of them, and say, “Gandhi and Nehru above all. Dump Hindusthan and the Hindus!”. (i.e., “Don’t beat the dead snakes!”)

 

Hence NO “post mortem” of Partition! Hence for the entire Hindu nation the invisible Damocles Sword still hangs overhead! (https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/sword_of_Damocles)

 

Government of West Bengal must hold an enquiry as to why Chittagong & Gilgit, Buddhist majority districts, were surrendered like the sheep to the wolves. And the Government of EAST Punjab must hold an enquiry as to why Lahore and Sri Nankana Sahib were surrendered to the intolerant followers of “Mohammed of Mecca”. And the Government of INDIA must order an enquiry as to why Pandit Nehru ordered “CEASE FIRE” when our own troops were advancing!

9) we like Shahrukh Khan’s acting
And last but not the least and with due respect to PM
10) Considers gau rakshaks as the biggest threat to Hindustan, much higher than 26/11 terror act.

Is ancient India overrated ? A mind blowing analysis by Chinese Ex Professor from University of Toronto

Author: Pak L. Huide
Publication: Postcard.news
Date: July 22, 2017
Seriously? If anything, ancient India is sorely UNDERRATED.
I mean, I’m an ethnic Chinese living in Canada. But when I was growing up in Canada, I knew jackshit about India. Besides maybe curry.
I mean, people here have a vague understanding of Chinese history but they have NO idea about Indian history. For example, most people know that the Middle Kingdom is how China referred to herself but how many people know about Bharat? How many know about even the Guptas? People know that China was famous for ceramics and tea but how many people know about ancient India’s achievement in metallurgy? People k now about the Great Wall, but how many know about the great temples of southern India?
This is partly due to the lackluster historical records that ancient Indians kept and also partly because modern Indians have a tendency to look down upon their ancient heritage and view western ideas and ideals as superior. China also has this problem but not nearly to the same extent.
The discovery that the earth is spherical is credited to the Greek philosopher Aristotle, who was born in 384 BCE. However, very few people know that a man from ancient India established the idea of “spherical earth” during the 8th-9th century BCE. The man was called Yajnavalkya who first discovered that the earth is round. He was the first to propose the heliocentric system of the planets. In his work Shatapatha Brahmana, he proposed that the earth and the other planets move around the sun. He also calculated the period of one year as 365.24675 days. This is only 6 minutes longer than the current established time of 365.24220 days
Take the example of Kung Fu. The whole world knows about the martial art called Kung Fu. The person who founded Kung Fu was none other than a prince of the Pallava dynasty from Kanchipuram, Tamil Nadu who visited China during the 5th century CE. He became th e 28th patriarch of Buddhism and established the Shaolin temple and founded the martial art which became world famous today. That prince was called Bodhidharma.
But how many people know about that Kung Fu and Shaolin was founded by an Indian? Precisely, if Indians are unaware of their heritage, why should they expect that someone else will know about their history and achievement?
The achievements of ancient Indians are lost in obscurity. India’s ancestors had invented many ways which eased the basic life of a commo n man. These inventions may seem primitive today, but we can’t ignore the fact that these were revolutionary achievements during their era.
The Indus Valley civilization is known for the broad and the sanitized drainage system which was no less than a miracle during those ancient times. But how many people know that the ancient Indians from Indus Valley Civilization (IVC) were the first to invent a flush toilet?
The people around the world use rulers to measure everything. How many people know that Indus Valley Civi lization was the first to invent the rulers? A ruler has been found at Lothal which is 4400 years old. Not only this, the people of IVC were the first to invent buttons. The world knows that the Chinese discovered the art of weaving silk dresses. How many people know that IVC people were the first to weave dresses made of cottons
The ancient Indians were first to invent the weighing scales. Archaeologists have discovered weighs and scales from the excavation sites of Harappa, Mohenjodaro, Lothal etc. These scales were extensively used for trading.
Ancient India has given Yoga to the world- which is widely practiced almost all over the world to keep people fit and fine. Models, supermodels, film stars, athletes, etc. regularly attends Yoga session to keep themselves fit.
Aryabhatta, Brahmagupta and Bhaskaracharya were the three eminent mathematicians from ancient India who established the concept of zero as a mathematical value in different eras. Brahmagupta was the first to invent a symbol for the value “shunya” (zero). Bhaskaracharya was the first to use it as algebra. The oldest inscription of zero can be found at the Chaturbhuj temple in Gwalior fort
Ancient Indians were pioneers in the field of chemistry too. The person who first invented the “atomic theory” was none other than Acharya Kanad from ancient India. He explained the atomic theory using terms like “Anu”(atom) and “Paramanu”(nucleus).
Ancient Indians were advanced in medical science too. The great physician of the time, Sage Shusrut was the first to carry out different surgeries which included plastic surgery and cataract surgery. His works are composed in his book called Shusrut Samhita (The works of Shusrut). The world hardly knows about Charak, the great specialist in medicine from ancient India. He was the first physician to establish the problems and medicinal treaties in fields like physiology, embryology, digestion, sexual disease, immunity, etc. His works on Ayurveda is composed as a book called Charak Samhita (The works of Charak).
The Chera dynasty of Tamil Nadu invented the idea of producing finest steel by heating black magnetite ore along with carbon. The mixture was kept in a crucible and heated in charcoal furnace. The Wootz Steel originated from India, but today, is popular as Damascus Steel.
India’s monuments are grand and are probably, the only way others recognize the importance of ancient Indian civilization. India’s gigantic monuments bear the testimony of the greatness of ancient India.
This is the Kailash Temple. It is a megalith which was constructed by cutting out a single rock- a mountain. The whole mountain was cut from the top to carve out the temple campus.
This is Dwarka, the grand and mysterious city submerged in the Arabian sea on the extreme west of India. The submerged heritage is no less than a treasure bearing the pride of Indian race!
This is Khajuraho, the marvel where the rocks has taken the form. The best of our monuments are not built on soft rocks like marble. Our ancestors carved out even the hardest of the rocks to give it a beauty.
The grandest and largest temple in India- Brihadeshwara temple. Breathtaking, isn’t it?
India is the land of grandest temples and breathtaking architectures. The heritage of India can’t be encapsulated within a small answer! To end the answer with, I will now share my personal favorite- The Sun Temple of Konark!
The main structure of the temple was partially destroyed by invaders like Kalapahad- a military general of the medieval period. Later, the prime structure totally collapsed when British stored gunpowder inside the structure and it caught fire accidentally.
Even though the main temple is gone, the amount of what left is still breathtaking by every means. Nobel Laureate Rabindranath Tagore wrote about Konark- “here the language of stone surpasses the language of man.”
The whole temple was designed like a huge chariot of Sun God having 24 wheels pulled by 7 horses. Each wheel had 8 major spokes denoting 1 prahar (Hindu time period of 3 hours). There was a huge magnet at the top of the temple which used to keep the idol of the Sun deity suspended in the air due to magnetic arrangement.
Still think, that ancient India is overrated?
Ancient India was a hub of culture and technology and the absolute capital of world spirituality. I could talk about India for hours. India is many things but OVERRATED is definitely not one of them.
