The Highest Name of God and Other Names – An Excerpt from Satyarth Prakash

Hinduism, Swami Dayananda Saraswati
Source:- Satyarth Prakash / Swami Dayananda Saraswati. 'Aom' is the highest name of God; it is composed of three letters, A, O, M. This one name comprises many other names of God. Thus, briefly -- 'A' stands for Virat, Agni and Vishwa, etc. 'O' stands for Hiranyagarbha, Vayu and Taijas, etc. 'M' stands for Ishwara, Aditya and Prajna, etc. It is clearly explaine3d in the Vedas and other true Sastras that wherever they treat of God; all these names stand for him. There are no Gods. The multitude of names like Indra signify not different divine being, but different aspects of one Absolute Existence. To download full ebook Click Here.

Muslims routinely scare people of other faiths by saying that if they do not embrace Islam, Allah will burn them in hell. There are 7.4 billion people on Earth -- 2 billion Christians, 1.5 billion are Muslims, and the rest of 3.9 billion people on Earth are Hindus, Buddhists, Atheists, Agnostics, Shintos, Confucians, others. Can you ever imagine a loving and merciful God who would burn more than nearly 6 billion people of humanity in hell for not following the Muslim faith? This means that Rama, Buddha, Guru Nanak, Swami Vivekananda, Mahatma Gandhi, and even modern Gurus such as Amma of Kerala, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev would find their place in hell. Can you imagine that a Maulvi at a local masjid, being a devout Muslim, would find his way in heaven, but no...

Two most common questions Muslims use to attack Hindus

Miscellaneous
Qs: How can there be so many gods? There can be only one creator of the Universe!   Hindus believe that all of creation is ONE with the Creator. All that you see around you is made up of the same energy or consciousness as that of the Creator. It is a form of ONE-ness that Islam or Christianity are unable to even imagine. This is called Advaita or non-dual in Hinduism. 'One without a second' -- no separation of the creator and the created; no Shaitan or Satan who messes with Allah's will & creates confusion in the minds of human beings. Advaita is a very powerful idea. It believes that all human beings are God-potential; they are in fact truly made as an 'image of God' (as Bible suggests but is misinterpreted by Christians) -- this means that human beings are the same as the ...

Credit:- This is a repost of the article that came in PGurus.com "I didn’t know anything about my own faith and so I could not give them any responses to their accusations" Yesterday, Janam TV, a Malayalam channel, carried the press conference called by Athira, a victim of the Love Jihad that has the people of Kerala alarmed these days. Though Athira’s case is strictly not one of Love Jihad, it has been treated in common parlance as being of the same category. Athira, a girl who was lured into Islam by various means turned away from it and the press conference she called yesterday was to tell her story.

The Importance of Nasadiya Sukta

The Importance of Nasadiya Sukta

Hinduism, Indic Religions
'Nasadiya Sukta' occurs in the 10th Mandala of Rigveda (10.129.1-7). This hymn is very peculiar in many respects. Many thinkers have opined that, the philosophical speculations started, when man began to suspect the efficacy of his own senses. He doubted that his senses are not capable to understand the true character of the experimental world. At this point, man started to ask questions to himself. This is considered as the first step of philosophical speculation, which later, lead to the development of robust thought streams. Nasadiya Sukta in Sanskrit:- नासदासीन्नो सदासीत्तदानीं नासीद्रजो नो व्योमा परो यत् | किमावरीवः कुह कस्य शर्मन्नम्भः किमासीद्गहनं गभीरम् ॥ १॥ न मृत्युरासीदमृतं न तर्हि न रात्र्या अह्न आसीत्प्रकेतः | आनीदवातं स्वधया तदेकं तस्माद्धान्यन्न परः किञ्चनास ॥२॥ तम
