Hindu Philosophy


Hindu philosophy is primarily governed by the sacred teachings of Bhagavad Gita... the doctrine given to mankind by Lord Krishna in the battle of Mahabharata. This single document... the sacred Bhagavad Gita contains the gist of Hindu philosophy... the knower of which becomes omniscient and finally attains enlightenment and salvation (aka moksha in Hinduism).

As per Bhagavad Gita... the head of every Hindu family is required to take care of children until they settle in life. The time period for the same is not an open factor. For a boy the considered age is around 25 years. For a girl... the responsibility of the family is primarily over after she gets married.

Around 25 years of age it is expected that the boy will settle down in his profession... thereafter left on his own one has to take care of the self. It is totally unlike west where children are expected to leave the precincts of the house at an early age of 16 years or so.

In the Hindu tradition the boy can continue living in a joint family having stepped into a profession. None in the family would ever ask one to step out. This joint family system inculcates a very strong bondage of relationship between various members of the family. Sometimes it is also cause for heartburn for many (only in rare cases).

If the child is not able to establish self into a profession by 25 years of age... even though the responsibility of the parents towards the child is over... the boy continues living in the family until he finds suitable work. Similar is the case with girls... they live in the house until married. This is what Hinduism is all about!

As per Hindu philosophy, the initial 25 years of life are spent in Brahmacharya (as a celibate), next 25 years pursuing our profession (in Grihastha ashram... family life), from 51 to 75 one is expected to spend in Vanprastha ashram (introspecting on god... the life of a hermit, ascetic) and the balance 25 years... as a sanyasi in sanyasa ashram (monk hood).
