is the most primary and fundamental religion of the world. Nothing
in Hinduism supports fanaticism or fundamentalism as in Christianity
or Islamic Dharma! With the development of mankind the first religion
to develop was Hinduism. Why?
the preceptor of Islamic Dharma came many centuries later to Jesus
Christ. Gautama Buddha... whose following is termed Buddhism came
about 423 years earlier to Jesus Christ. Mahavira... the 24th Tirthankara
of Jainism (preceptor) came 77 years earlier to Gautama Buddha.
years earlier to Mahavira came Lord Krishna... an Avatar of his
era (God manifest in human form). It was Lord Krishna who gave the
doctrine of Bhagavad Gita to mankind in battle of Mahabharata. The
teachings of Bhagavad Gita do not form beginning of Hinduism religion.
of Lord Krishna came Vedas; the first scriptures, sacred documents
directly revealed to mankind by God Almighty! All Vedas of Hinduism
form the initial revelations invoked directly from God. Along with
Vedas came Upanishads (Independent treatises).
is a conglomerate of various faiths, teachings, and invocations
of various sages and saints of different era! Hinduism religion
is a totally tolerant religion. For understanding Hinduism one need
not convert to Hinduism. Any human being world over can follow the
tenets of Bhagavad Gita without becoming a Hindu!
It is Hinduism
religion that preached to mankind the meaning of forgiveness...
that essential ingredient of life in absence of which religions
simply could not exist for long! Hinduism religion carries same
importance as that of a soul atman existing in the body!
No live body
can exist in absence of a soul atman. The moment our soul atman
leaves the body... the body decays and dies! In absence of Hinduism
mankind would carry no meaning. The subtle teachings of life...
the essence of life lay in the teachings of Bhagavad Gita.
It is by following
teachings of Bhagavad Gita... Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ
and Prophet Mohammed finally gained enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)
in their lifetime. The lost years of Jesus Christ are attributed
to his stay in India... in the famous Nalanda and Taxila universities
also gained his entire teachings while in Persia that lay along
the boundary of India in ancient times! Lord Krishna... Mahavira...
Gautama Buddha... all belonged to India. And so do Sri Ramakrishna
Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana... the only two persons amongst
the world community who gained enlightenment in the last about 150
is never considered a religion... it is always termed a way of life!
By assimilating the pearls of wisdom contained in sacred Bhagavad
Gita of Hinduism any human being world over can reach the stage
of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha).
of Bhagavad Gita have a universal appeal. Even while remaining in
ones religion... any human being world over can follow the teachings
of Bhagavad Gita... finally gain enlightenment and salvation!
India has been
attacked from the East by Muslim invaders countless times but not
once till date India has attacked one sovereign country world over.
The practice of Ahimsa (nonviolence) and forgiveness have been long
preached and practiced in India. Hinduism religion forms the core
of life on Mother Earth!
