Strange Similarities Between Greek And Indian Mythology

Strange Similarities Between Greek And Indian Mythology

Hinduism
Source: - Gyan Factory YouTube Channel. If you’re a fan of mythology I’m sure you’ve already figured out what this Video is about. Greek and Indian Mythology are two of the oldest mythologies known to man. Although both of these mythologies have no established connection with each other, yet they share some striking similarities. In this Video we’re going to compare 10 Greek Gods and/or heroes with their best possible match from Indian mythology. Some of the comparisons indicate towards a parallelism between the two cultures, while other comparisons hint towards a direct collaboration/inoculation of the deities/heroes from one culture to another. No matter the thousands of miles’ distance between the two, the parallelism is certainly striking and some fuel to the thoughts. https://www.y
Hinduism: Mythology Vs Reality

Hinduism: Mythology Vs Reality

Hinduism, Videos
Source: - Dharma Speaks YouTube Channel. The various stories in Sanathana Dharma are full of amazing fantastic tales of Gods, Goddesses and demons. They form an integral part of the spiritual beliefs of Hindu culture. But how can a rational mind hold them to be true? Are Hindus actually saying these things happened or are they just metaphorical? Are they fact or fiction? The video explains there are three ways to understand the different stories: Symbolic, Historical or as a Reality. For many devotees they use these narrations as a reality which dictates their perception of how they view life. This is a profound devotional science which results in one being transported into deeper states of Divine love. A Love which reveals the ultimate Truth. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e03w6qABqZw...
Hinduism: Understanding Karma and Reincarnation

Hinduism: Understanding Karma and Reincarnation

Hinduism, Videos, What is Hinduism
Source: - Dharma Speaks YouTube Channel. Reincarnation can be a difficult concept to accept. But the idea makes sense when we understand that we are not what we take ourselves to be. The Masters and scriptures declare that beyond our physical and mental existence we are the Atman. Life is a cosmic journey where the Atman samples different aspects of life through different incarnations. Karma is the force of the universe that makes this happen. It is not a moral judge, but a law which allows us to create our future. Eventually after many lives we seek to break the ties of Karma and repeated birth and death, through Yoga. Yoga is the method of centering our consciousness on the Atman. When we do this we rise above our Samskaras (impressions) and reach a state beyond Karma and Rebirth - W...
Hinduism: Why so many different philosophies?

Hinduism: Why so many different philosophies?

Hinduism, Videos, What is Hinduism
Source: - Dharma Speaks YouTube Channel. Hinduism has the broadest range of philosophical ideas. There are theistic and non theistic traditions, those that see God as personal and impersonal. The reason for this variety is that different Masters have contacted different facets of the ultimate reality and delivered descriptions of it. These descriptions provide a framework for the mind to be guided to the same first hand experience of these Masters. In this video we focus on Vedanta and describe the different schools from the great acharays (Shankara, Ramanuja, Madva), and explain how each one has approached the ultimate reality in very different ways. This sophisticated setup has allowed seekers to approach Truth in a way that suits their nature. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCofNFj...

Indian Deities Worshipped in Japan (Japanese Version)

Buddhism, Hinduism, Videos
Courtesy: - Indian Diplomacy. There is a very important bridge of culture joining India and Japan. In the words of HE Mr. Yasukuni Enoki, Former Ambassador of Japan - “It is very important for the Japanese to know that in the bottom of Japanese culture, Indian culture is very firmly imprinted”. Buddhist and Hindu deities of India are worshiped by the people of Japan. The 5th century Sanskrit script is revered in Japan and its letters denoting different deities, are considered sacred by the Japanese. This documentary by cultural historian Benoy Behl explores this important link between the two countries. This is the Japanese subtitled version of the original documentary uploaded in 2015. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fsTUV88ohts Featured Image credit - https://www.booksfact.com/religio
