DO WE NEED RELIGION?

DO WE NEED RELIGION?

Hinduism, Indic Religions
Source: Maria Wirth  Blog. 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
Wide-spread love for Dr. Kalam among Hindus, absence of it in Muslim discourse, and the connection with Hindu revivalism

Wide-spread love for Dr. Kalam among Hindus, absence of it in Muslim discourse, and the connection with Hindu revivalism

Miscellaneous
Dr. Kalam has been one of the most loved President the country has seen. The joy on him becoming the President during Vajpayee’s term and later the outpouring of grief on social media on his passing away is testimony to the love that an average Indian carried for him. After Barrack Obama became President of the United States, articles appeared in Indian media on whether Hindu majority India would ever be able to cross the barrier of having a Muslim Prime Minister largely because of the legacy of the religion-based partition of India in 1947 with Jinnah-led Muslims demanding a separate homeland for themselves. While the Presidential post is a ceremonial one and has seen many Muslims in the past, getting a Muslim Prime Minister to lead the country sounds surely like a tall order. Or
How effective has the Sudarshan Kriya been for people who did the Art of Living course? Are there any health issues to be concerned about when doing this? (Excerpt)

How effective has the Sudarshan Kriya been for people who did the Art of Living course? Are there any health issues to be concerned about when doing this? (Excerpt)

Hinduism, Karma Yoga, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Yoga
Source: - Swami Purnachaitanya / Quora. First of all I would like to mention that the Sudarshan Kriya is mainly effective for those who have done the Art of Living course, as there is no other place to learn this technique properly, and it only affects other people indirectly - as in, when you become a more healthy, happy, caring and responsible person it will indirectly affect the people around you, but you breathing in a different manner will not directly affect the people around you (unless you make a lot of noise or have a smelly breath ;-)). As for the Sudarshan Kriya being effective, it again depends on what you mean it to be effective for: if you are asking if it is effective in cleaning your house or paying your debts, then probably not. However, if you are asking how effective i...

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 not Gandh...

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 ...
Athira… and the violence of conversion

Athira… and the violence of conversion

Miscellaneous
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 video is a poignant one and it is embedded here. Please click on the captions option to view the subtitles. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=clhtoJyP70k The video is su
