Basic Beliefs of Hinduism


Hinduism is primarily not a religion... it is a way of life! It is only Hinduism that teaches how human beings can reach the stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha). No other belief other than Hinduism is more valid or tacit for gaining enlightenment in present lifetime.

The concept of God Almighty... the definition of God Almighty... the start of Cosmos with a big bang... the theory of evolution... the concept of heaven and hell... the doctrine behind souls atmans manifesting human forms... the doctrine of karma... the law of Dharma... why God made this world... importance of celibacy on the path of self realization... all is explained in Hinduism!

The Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism is one such sacred scripture the knower of which finally gains emancipation from the cycle of birth and death forever. The path of spirituality is best traveled following the dictates of Bhagavad Gita in Hinduism. Religion and spirituality is not about reaching the gates of heaven (aka Swarga in Hinduism).

It is Hinduism which clearly states that heaven and hell are interim stages for the soul atman to hibernate until matching parents are available on Mother Earth! After the death of the body... the hibernating soul atman remains in heaven or hell depending upon the residual balance of karma. Heaven... if the balance is positive and hell if negative!

Hinduism never mingles words. It is totally based on logistics. Either you convince me... or I convince you... similar as the dialogues of Plato! Whoever convinces last is the winner. Hinduism does not have one document like Christianity and Islamic Dharma. Christianity is based on the teachings contained in Bible and Islamic Dharma on Quran!

In Hinduism... the list of sacred scriptures is endless! As per Hinduism... initially came the Vedas... the revelations from God... termed by many as Hindu revelations! (Truly revelations never belong to anybody). They are universal in nature... with a universal appeal! Along with Vedas developed Upanishads... the treatises by individual enlightened souls.

The voluminous Vedas... the Rig Veda, the Sama Veda, the Yajur Veda and Atharva Veda were not comprehensible to the masses. And was born Lord Krishna... an Avatar of his era (God manifest in human form)! Lord Krishna reduced the voluminous Vedas to Vedanta (the end of Vedas). Vedanta is another term used for sacred Bhagavad Gita.

With the doctrine of Bhagavad Gita... with the teachings imbibed in Bhagavad Gita... Lord Krishna gave to humanity the much needed reprieve! Now the essence of worldly wisdom was available to the masses in a simpler language... a commoner could fathom! Bhagavad Gita is the end of all. The sacred Bhagavad Gita contains everything worth knowable.

The knower of Bhagavad Gita finally gains enlightenment... becomes the knower of all... gains omniscience forever! Hinduism is not related to any religion, belief or caste. Any human being world over without converting to Hindu religion can follow the dictates of the sacred Bhagavad Gita. The teachings of Bhagavad Gita belong to all.

On the path of spirituality... every single factor one encounters on the uncharted path is detailed in the sacred Bhagavad Gita. Other than the 700 shlokas (verses) contained in the sacred Bhagavad Gita... one need not read or refer anything else! Fathoming the depth of wisdom contained in the sacred Bhagavad Gita... I finally realized God in 1993.

When 11 years of age I wanted to see and meet God in this very life. By 13 years of age my desire firmed up into firm conviction... come whatever may (even if I have to leave my family... my parents, brothers and sisters)... I shall within this lifetime reach God. 25 years of Yoga meditation... I finally reached the stage of self realization at 37 years of age!
