I am a Hindu  because it professes Non-violence – “Ahimsa Paramo Dharma” – Non violence is the highest duty. I am a Hindu because it doesn’t conditions my mind with any faith system. I am a hindu because I respect and take ideas from books like quran,bible etc.

Come on osesame, I think my posts towards Gone aren’t an insult or smthing like that. Y’know I just used sm special language which I assumed that he’d know and understand it the best. I encouraged him to learn by his own way and by his own kind of language. But I think I didn’t succeed, didn’t I?

just—-girl : "Hindu worship cow" yes some do. But it is left to the individual to do so. No one forces you to do any thing. According to hinduism too there is only one god, and we call it in diffrent, in most cases each house has god. It is a matter of intention. Why do we love our parents? there are many reason for this. How do we take care of our parents, even that depends on the individual. similarly, there are multiple ways to be closer to god.

Hi birgul ,  Cool when do we start discussing about evolution again???

Dev :  i too hate politics but , nuclear deal is very important to us. There are fresh evidences for "cash for vote" incident

osesame :  hindus believe in "matru devo bahava" ie mother is equvalent to god. "Pitru devo bahava" ie father is equvalent to god

We(most humans) love our mother and respect her. But are we fearful of our mother?  Similarly god is not an emporor or a king who says pray me or you will be punished.God doesn't operate in such a fasion.  God is not something we have to be afraid of, God should be respected and loved, not feared.

So, Hindu is peaceful in doctrine and practice that does not prohibit followers to absorb other regilious beliefs. It's less likely to create frictions.

I was never afraid of my parents. Wht would any one be afraid of our parents? I was afraid of doing wrong things because it will sadden my parents because i love them, But yes I was afraids of teachers because of their sticks. God is not a stick wealding person

 

prelude94:  You have pretty much said it all.
