Hinduism Religion a Way of Life


Hinduism primarily is not a religion... it is a way of life! Hinduism is considered a complex religion for the prime reason that it consists of innumerable gods... has unlimited scriptures... untold rituals... from where to make a beginning becomes difficult!

It is a different matter that Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism is foremost of all scriptures. Knowing Bhagavad Gita one can assimilate the entire wisdom of the cosmos... gain enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and salvation (moksha).

Hinduism is primarily a conglomerate of various beliefs and practices. India before gaining independence was invaded from the east by Muslim invaders. The invaders crossed river Indus before entering India. The Muslim invaders pronounced H for I. with passage of time... people living beyond river Indus came to be known as Hindus... and the religion Hinduism!

In Hinduism initially came the Vedas but the four principal Vedas were incomprehensible to the masses. Came Lord Krishna and precipitated the wisdom of the Vedas to Bhagavad Gita which is also termed Vedanta (end of Vedas). Bhagavad Gita is one such scripture which has no parallel in mankind.

Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ and Prophet Mohammed... all gained enlightenment in their lifetime based on the teachings of Bhagavad Gita! For knowing the essence of Bhagavad Gita one need not convert to Hinduism. Following ones religion... one can follow the teachings of Bhagavad Gita which has a universal appeal.

Apart from Vedas... the sacred Bhagavad Gita, Hinduism has numerous Upanishads (independent treatises) which are commentaries by renowned sages and saints of their era. Upanishads also form the core of Hinduism. Apart from Upanishads, Hinduism has two great epics... the sacred Mahabharata and Ramayana.

The list of gods is endless. As per Hinduism there exist 330 million gods. However Hinduism considers the existence of Brahman also termed God Almighty, Parmatman, Sanatana Purusha and Karta as the only truth of life. As per Hinduism apart from Brahman nothing else exists in whole of cosmos. The doctrine of Maya (veil of illusion) takes care of that.

For truly understanding Hinduism... whatever is contained in the 700 shlokas (verses) of Bhagavad Gita suffices. The knower of Bhagavad Gita finally becomes the knower of all... gains omniscience for all practical purposes. The contents of Bhagavad Gita can never be understood literally... one needs reading in between the lines.

Following the dictates of Bhagavad Gita... I finally realized God in 1993 at 37 years of age. I have reached the end of cosmic life... the 8.4 millionth manifestation. Nowhere else to go further I shall but attain salvation (moksha) at the end of present life cycle.
