https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KObhh12mrY0 People who criticize Ramanand, claim that Kabir was not his disciple, are unable to come up with any coherent arguments to support their arguments. They keep talking in a confused manner. However, Ramananad ji’s role in bringing back Hindus who had been forcibly converted to other religions is very big. This is a very big thing he did, which nobody else had done before him. Only a warrior saint could achieve such a thing. To put it in plain terms, (we will move the slide forward), the norm in those days was that Hindus had been forced to accept Islam under the threat of the sword, threatened with such a scenario, the Hindu will convert to Islam, he has no option but to do so. People were being converted in lakhs. However, the fanatic, wi

Like many daughters of Islamic scholars, Al-Suwaidan always embraced the headscarf. She traveled the world with it, she obtained her masters degree from Georgetown University with it, and she conducted her poetry TV show while wearing it. But late last year she posted a photo of herself on her Facebook page without the hijab, commenting that “I left to India in search of God away from any religion or sect and discovered that the

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...

At the same time they also believe in the existence of one Supreme God, whom they call variously as Paramatma (Supreme Self), Parameshwar (Supreme Lord), Parampita (Supreme Father). Iswara, Maheswara, Bhagawan, Purusha, Purushottama, Hiranyagarbha and so on. In the Vedas and several scriptures, He is popularly known as Brahman, the infinite, expansive, supreme God. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MBkAFPV5Hyo

By tradition, based mostly upon the planetary position, the fourteenth day of this particular fortnight every year [one day before new moon when Sun is in Kumbha] is looked upon as a day of initiation, religious, spiritual initiation. Also, it is a day dedicated purely for prayers. Many people take sannyas on this day. Today in India many Anandas might have been born. Today barbers also have a field day. They remove the hair; it is sort of a wholesale thing. So in Rishikesh you will find a number of people getting initiated into monastic order, a sannyasa, a life of a monk, on this particular day, Shivaratri day. And I also became a sannyasi on this particular day. The teachers decide to givesannyas to the students and they call the students and tell th...

My native place is Perla, a place in Kasargode district, Kerala. I belong to the Havyaka Brahmin community. Please don’t ask me more details about Havyaka, I did not try to find the root of this community. Anyway, I have heard that, it is a very important section in the Brahmin community. Because of that, we have got and enjoyed good respect from the society. Like Sahana told here earlier, rather than as a Hindu, I lived as a Brahmin, Brahmin girl. From my childhood, I had seen many kinds of rituals conducting in my home. I started to say words like Isvara or God, only after came here.

Recently a friend, who believes in Islam, sent an audio clip to the students of Arsha Vidya Samajam. Students in turn sent that clip to me and requested to give a reply. Since those critics are worthy to consider, I am giving an explanation herewith. I carefully listened to the audio clip send by the Muslim friend. He comments mainly on four topics. First, God concepts contained in the Hindu Puranas are childish. He asks why Gods need nose and other sense faculties. He also describes the foolishnesses in the Ganapathi tales. Second, Why Lord Mahadev needs leopard’s skin? Which came to existence first, Mahadev or leopard? Why God needs weapons like trident? This is the second
Source: - Maria Wirth Blog. We keep using the English term „God“ as if we know what it means. But do we? “Of course”, many may reply: “God is the English term for the Creator of the universe, for the Highest Truth.” Few will doubt that this universe and we included have to come from somewhere and ‘God’ is given as the answer. He is seen as the ultimate power, the highest truth, from which all else emanates. Yet somehow, ‘God’ has taken on strange attributes in public perception: He is invariably male, and has allegedly spoken to a few special persons and told them what he wants from us humans. He is also said to be compassionate and loves those who believe in him and who follow the instructions sent down through those special people, but he won’t have any mercy for those who don’t follo

Before answering this question, let’s first find out what we need: We need to know how to live life in the best possible way to be happy, healthy, confident, strong and capable, and how to live in harmony with others and nature. And we need to find answers to important, basic questions, like: What is the purpose of life? Where did we come from? Where will we go from here? What is this world made of? And most important: Who are we? Our present day science doesn’t give us the necessary guidance, nor does it give answers to these questions, as it still is in its infancy exploring consciousness. Our conscience is no doubt helpful in living a good, moral life. Yet it does not help us much in diving into the mysteries behind this universe and our own per
