Hinduism Animal Worship


In Ayurveda... an old branch of medicine... where stress is more on herbal and natural treatment... cow urine is considered sacrosanct! Not because in Hinduism Indians respect cows... but for the reason the cow urine has some medicinal properties. It is used in making some medicines.

Hinduism is the most logistical of all religions existing in the world. Every act in Hinduism precipitates from proven factors... not mere assumptions... as in Christianity and Islam! Knowing well that heaven exists somewhere in the center of the sun where temperatures exceed millions of degree centigrade... people still desire a seat in heaven!

In Hinduism... there is no dearth of gods! Hinduism has a total of 330 million gods... that is practically one god per four Indians. Interesting... is it not!

In Hinduism God Almighty is only one. God Almighty is also termed as Brahman, Parmatman, Karta, Sanatana Purusha etc. But for the masses... a commoner to worship God as a cosmic entity... in Nirakaar form (without a form) is just not possible... the prime reason why Hindus worship God in myriads of ways!

For one who cannot afford going to a temple... one can circumambulate and worship a tree considering it as representing God. In India most rivers... mountains are considered sacrosanct! All are worshiped as representative entities of God. In the nascent stages of life... when wisdom had not yet evolved as of now... people feared every form of nature.

Those living by a river... started worshiping rivers. Those living in the higher regions... worshipped mountains. Whatever form human beings could lay hands on... people started worshiping God in that form! As long as people worshipped God... there was nothing wrong in the manner they were doing it!

There were times when children depended upon cow's milk. Whole families depended upon the milk of cow. It was also a bread earner for the family. And with passage of time... people started worshiping cow as sacred!

Life depended upon sun, air, water... and people started worshiping all these forms! Monkeys are considered representing Hanuman... the favorite pupil and follower of Lord Rama! Monkeys are also considered sacrosanct in India. Snakes are worshiped for their attributes. As per mythology... normally snakes make a hideout at places where lay a bounty of gold and diamonds!

Also, Cobras are the favorite of Lord Shiva... the most powerful attribute of God Almighty! Mouse is worshipped by some as it is the favorite vehicle of Lord Ganesha. There is no end to as what can be worshipped in Hinduism.

The ultimate crux of life lay in truly worshiping God... and not the mode! As God Almighty is approachable to all... as per Hinduism every human being has a right to worship God in ones own way. One need not go to a temple for worshiping God.
