Hinduism – a way of life
You may think that that this is just an utopia and a surrealistic idea. But the truth is that this way of life actually exists and is accessible to everyone who wants to explore it and understand it. In fact, I am talking about Hinduism – one of the most widely misunderstood and complicated subject that the world is curious about. Some call it a religion, others a superstition and some don’t understand it at all and even call it a place of devil. The thing is that Hinduism can not match the definition of religion. It should rather be called “a way of life”, which is not restricting you from believing in anything or not believing at all as long as you do good deeds and you are a good human. It is a source of an essential information for every human to live in a way that a human can maximize his chances to survive on this planet in a pure co-existence with the universe and nature in the best possible harmony.
The greatest repository of knowledge
For instance, Hinduism is so unique as I don’t know any other “religion” which gives you any information on how to do a plastic surgery. Surprised? I bet you are but this is absolutely true. Hinduism answers the question how to heal yourself when you have health problem. It describes how to perform a surgical operation – plastic surgery (for those who got crippled in an accident or a war),transplantation, brain surgery or any thing else for that matter. Everything has one source. Hinduism teaches you how to design the layout of a house or a marvelous piece of architecture by extra-ordinary civil engineering or how to construct a praying or any suitable place to build in the best way possible that humans can think of – of course without degrading environment or by taking away from the environment in the least way possible. In a similar way it gives you the knowledge how to dance, how to sing, how to do agriculture, how to travel in the air and even in the universe(spaceships). Hinduism is the greatest repository of knowledge for astronomy, mathematics,physics, biology, chemistry, quantum physics, geography, geometry, astronomy, cosmology,architecture, economy, travelling, recreation and all the other subjects that you can come up with. It can even give you information to take you beyond physical experience so that you can travel through the universe in a form of a body which can survive the space and time complications. Hinduism is a great source of knowledge and surprisingly it combines science and religion together – something that the world is always skeptic about. And here we must remember, that science is just”a work in progress” and sometimes one may frequently come across information in Hinduism which is pretty much ahead of current scientific discoveries.
How to find this knowledge?
Now comes the question – if this source of information actually exists, how to find it? There are two ways to do it. The easiest one is just to read what the enlightened yogis and sages wrote as there were and there are people who understood it and wrote it down for others. But there is also another way which is more incredible and fascinating – Hinduism gives you knowledge and freedom to find it yourself. This is what self-realization means – exploring yourself and finding the Absolute Truth. That is why Hinduism does not come in the categories of “religions”. Hinduism is not about believing, It’s about seeking. Isn’t it amazing? We all have a chance to get access to the knowledge that can make us understand not only this world but the whole universe. But remember,all of this is not coming to us without an effort – not only one must have a desire and passion to access this information, but also one must devote oneself to find the truth. One must be a seeker. And for those who can’t seek or can’t follow, Hinduism has an answer for them too but that has to be a future blog post.
Hinduism brings itself a number of questions which for sure are just starting to pop up in your mind right now. This post will not answer even a tiniest percent of them, it is just to give you an idea of how unique and special this “way of life” is. By the way, did you know that Hinduism is a name which was given by the neighbors of the people who were following this “way of life”that I am talking about? Unfortunately this is true as they mispronounced it hundreds of years ago because of a river called ‘Sindhu’ that was flowing in the area of India at that time. Hinduism in world can be traced everywhere – it once influenced the whole Earth, but people forgot about it and now they ran away from it. The good thing is that more and more people are getting interested in the Eastern philosophy and they are searching for the most liberal religion, so sometimes they come across Hinduism. On the other hand, most of them don’t get the chance to understand it properly and reach the real source and knowledge. Unfortunately, due to the British and Mughal invasion in India, many present Hindus themselves are unaware of their own religion. But this blog is here to answer you and provide you some authentic information about this way of life which challenges the stereotype of conflicts between science and religion.
