Hinduism a Way of Life


Primarily Hinduism is not considered a religion. Why? Christianity developed after Jesus Christ... Buddhism after teachings of Gautama Buddha! Most religions emanate from the following of an enlightened one. That is how God mighty ordained the cosmic system to be.

The foremost of all religious books existing on Mother Earth are Vedas... that are considered words of God directly invoked by sages and seers of that era! During the time of Vedas, Lipi the written word had not yet evolved. Vedas mean... the spoken word!

In the initial stages the messages contained in Vedas passed from generation to generation through word of mouth... Vedas... spoken from the mouth! The Vedas were voluminous in nature much beyond the comprehension of normal human beings. Came Lord Krishna... the essence of Vedas was summarized into Vedanta (also termed Bhagavad Gita)... meaning end of Vedas.

Bhagavad Gita... the doctrine given to mankind by Lord Krishna in Mahabharata is the foremost of all Hindu scriptures. Whatever is contained in Rig Veda, Sama Veda, Yajur Veda and Atharva Veda... the essence of all exists in the Sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism.

Apart from Vedas and the Sacred Bhagavad Gita, Hinduism has a long list of Upanishads (independent treatises) composed by accomplished sages and Saints of that era. Upanishads number above 200 in total. Mahabharata and Ramayana form two great epics of Hinduism... yet; Hinduism is never considered a religion!

Beyond the river Indus (that lay between Pakistan and India)... existed on the east a civilization that was termed by Muslim invaders as Hindu. As the Muslim invaders pronounced H for I... all people living beyond Indus were pronounced by them as Hindus. And the faiths and beliefs of Hindus came to be collectively known as Hinduism.

But why of all accounts Hinduism is termed a way of life? The Sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism teaches the essence of life. Following the wisdom contained in the Sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism human beings reach the stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha).

The teachings of Hinduism are primarily termed as a way of life... for learning the tenets of Hinduism; one crosses the world of Samsara (worldly life) forever. One finally reaches the pinnacle of spirituality... the ultimate life goal of our soul atman... the 8.4 millionth manifestation... the last in the cosmic life cycle!

World over Hinduism is the only path following which human beings gain enlightenment and finally salvation. Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ and Prophet Mohammed... all followed the teachings contained in the Sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism for gaining enlightenment in their lifetime. The knower of Bhagavad Gita finally becomes the knower of all.
