Quote of the day

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.” — Marcus Aurelius

    I did not reach much of the contents published on the site. Many of the facts put were completely right, what has been told are true, but its a partial truth. Facts have been put down comparing just one religin, that is cristian, which I think is not fair. All those questions raised can be very easily answered in Hinduism.

    1. Like Prayers are not answred and so god is not there. —> It might be the truth, but just a faction of whole truth. One has to start from a point, the purpose of life, purpose of all living being on earth. Why one creature is insect, other is animal and then other is human. One human take birth as a wealthy person and enjoys all the luxury or life without doing any considerable work. On other hand, there are other human who are very nice and hardworking, but took birth in a poor family. He keep struggling through out life for enjoy even basic things. Not to mention those people who are handicapped, or suffering from serious illness from very beginning. There lot of many examples.
    Now coming to Prayers. God can not answer the prayer because this is not a world is made for nor it is going to work this way. As I was telling in paragraph above, everyone is carrying the fruits of his/her own deeds. Life goes over many cycles, which in turn going up and down based on the action of the living being in present body. In reality there is a soul, which is ever present. It keep moving from one body to other body. In lower form of bodies like insects and animal, they are very much tightly coupled with already decided destiny. Going higher into bodies a creature is getting more freedom of his/her action and hence greater chance to affect his destiny. Based on his/her actions a creature descends or acsends into the lower or higher form of bodies. Praying does not mean geting furits immediately. For example one who is suffering from Cancer is going to prayer and expects to be cured, how is it possible? One has to understand, if in present body somebody getting cancer it means he/she has done somethring drastically wrong either in prsent of pervious life. Praying now however can help him/her in future either in present or next life. For example, there is a criminal who has murdered somebody. Get punishment. Can he be set free one day only because he starts praying. I dont think so. Its not possible even by physical laws. How is it possible by devine law. However if such person doing good work in prison continuously or over a period of time, his punishment can be reduced.

    All such question can be very easily answered in Hinduism. Everybody in Hinduism asks such questions from very start, and all of them know the answer.
    Rasing such question without much research in turn shows ignorance to many things.
    One has to understand, not everything can be measured by physical bodies. It can very easily be proved that whatever exists on earth is nothing more than the illusion. Its not just religion, its science too. I dont think at the highest point there is any different between a true religion and sceince.
    Its not necessary that one religion is wrong, but also its very much possible that one religion is not telling whole truth.This is the problem with Cristianism and Islam. Both of these religion are based on the experience of one person. Both of these religion carries the drawbacks and limitation which is there when philosophies are made based on single person’s experience. I am not telling these two religions wrong, but I think both of these religions are incomplete.That is why there are so many unanswered questions are there.
    Its my personal experience in life. Anybody who can try independently can find many truths. Other disadvatages with these two religions are that they are like lawas. I dont think, soul can be bounded by physical laws. One should start discovering facts independently. Religion can not be a law and also a law can not be a relgion.
    Both these religion behaves that they are protecting God rather than God protecting them. They are running a religion like organization.
    God is very deep thing. God can be felt in this living body itself. There are so many ways, for a honest and pure person. But no ways for corrupted herat.
