22: Life After Death
... to this puzzle is religion. Unlike science, dealing only with the material and tangible, traditional religion takes another view of our reality by recognizing the validity of metaphysical experiences. World's major religions, such as Hinduism, Buddhism, and Christianity, as well as primal pagan ones, such as the Greek and Roman mythology, although quite different in basic fundamentals of belief, all attempt to give its followers an explanation of the world ... and the universal resurrection of humanity. General eschatology, on the other hand, considers the final destiny of the whole human race, especially the events of the last days, that is universal resurrection and final judgment. Hinduism, however, is only concerned with personal eschatology. (Ma'sumian 2) As with any aspect of Hinduism, the teachings of life after death must take into consideration the many different sectarian beliefs. (Smith 26) Different philosophies of Hinduism hold divergent views about what happens after death, but the twin doctrines of ...

24: What Is A Hindu?
What Is A Hindu? What is a Hindu? Well, as scholar Jayesh Singh says, "A Hindu is one of lucid mind and spirit." (Article, WWW, hindunet) This is because Hinduism is a way of life, rather than a religion. It consists of many principles and beliefs, that come together to be Hinduism. As mentioned in the introduction, there are many different principals to Hinduism. Some of the most common principals are Daamyata, Datta, and, Dayadhvamh. Daamyata includes mental, spiritual and physical self-control, and is basically the same thing as Dama, which is actually just a subdivision of ...
25: Religion in Ancient India and Rgypt
... Despite all this development, the Egyptian religion was lacking solutions to every day problems, and answers to all the people’s questions. India, on the other hand achieved great strides in the field of religion. Hinduism was already the most popular religion in 560BC, in India. But, a wealthy merchant class(largely Vaishyas) were developing in the Bihar region. They started challenging orthodox beliefs and the dominance of Brahmans, leading to the development of two religious systems Jainism and Buddhism. Hinduism was known for its caste system that consisted of "Brahmins"(priests), Ksatriyas(warriors & rulers), Vaisyas(merchants & farmers), and the Sudras(peasants & laborers). There was a fifth class called the "Panchamas" whose occupations require them to handle unclean objects. The Hindu ideal way of life is "varnasramadharma" which means the duties of one’s class. Hinduism also outlines the stages of life, these are called the "asrama". The first is studentship "brahmacarya"(from 5 years old to marriage). The second is householdership "grihasthiya" which is when someone marries, raises a ...

... worship of mother goddesses, in the Sakta -Sakti cult, and in Tantrism. Less widespread but popular, particularly in the urban areas, were the more puritanical sects of Buddhism and Jainism and the bhakti tradition of Hinduism. A third level included classical Hinduism and more abstract levels of Buddhism and Jainism, with an emphasis on the major deities in the case of the first and on the teachings of the founders in the case of the latter two ... the three levels were not isolated; the shadow of the third fell over the first two, the more homely rituals and beliefs of which often crept into the third. This was the case particularly with Hinduism, the very flexibility of which was largely responsible for its survival. Forms of Buddhism, ranging from an emphasis on the constant refinement of doctrine, on the one hand, to an incorporation of magical fertility ...
27: The Bhagavad Gita
Upon the reading of chapters 1-6 of the Great Scripture of Hinduism, The Bhagavad Gita (the Lord s Song ), I am completely and utterly fascinated. The story s emphasis on selfless acts, devotion, and meditation is like no other I have ever encountered before. Through the narration of Sanjaya and the conversation of Sri Krishna (Vishnu incarnate) and Prince Arjuna, the principles of Hinduism are eloquently illustrated. In this story, the Lord Vishnu, whose duty it is to protect the universe from corruptive forces, takes the bodily form of Sri Krishna. He then lowers himself, out of love, and ... though here it is also a prerequisite for the ability to meditate. Krishna, within The Bhagavad Gita, uses meditation in his teaching of the inner side of spiritual life. Again, the love that exists within Hinduism is shown with the conversation of meditation. Prince Arjuna is unsure of his ability to progress in meditation, but Sri Krishna reassures him: Arjuna, my son, such a person will not be destroyed. No ...

... no more violent than any other religion. In fact, not only is Islam not a fundamentally violent philosophy, but we can also see that many other religions normally considered "non-violent," such as Christianity or Hinduism, have been spread through bloody conquest. Thus, in searching for a universal constant of history, we ought not fall into the "fallacy of abstractions," as Sydney J. Harris keenly puts it, and assume that because ... by the once mighty Americans (Ahmad, et. al., 46). The Spanish enslaved the Indians of Central and South America, while the British, Dutch, and French enslaved the Africans. Another religion with ties to violence is Hinduism. While that may perhaps be a startling revelation, history proves that it has had many violent incidents and tendencies. It was originally a product of the early Aryans, a war-like people who stormed into ... cities and eventually covering virtually all traces of the early culture of the Indus Valley. These Aryans transmuted their beliefs onto the now helpless people of the Indus river, and created what would eventually be Hinduism. While Hinduism remained relatively non-violent throughout the centuries, when the first Muslim invaders appeared and they clashed in both a philosophical and violent sense. Hindu violence returned in the mid-twentieth century, when ...
29: Religions' Views on Life After Death
... among many lords. The names of their God that they used were Elohim (the mighty one), Yahweh (he was, he is, he will be), or Adhonay (the Lord) (Eerdmans' Handbook 33). The earliest account of Hinduism dates back to 1500 B.C. when men and women sacrificed animals as a normal way of approaching God or the gods. The earliest literature of this account was written in the Vedas. The Vedas ... God as a man who is above all living things (Ariel 12). Jews believe that God created all living things in his image and with his own characteristics (Ariel 16). Despite a biased evaluation that Hinduism attracts the less instructed members of their community, it is apparent that Hinduism has a very great influence (Stevenson 131). Under Hinduism they worshiped many gods. Some worshiped gods that presented powers in nature, such as the rain and sun gods. Hindus also worshiped some gods in ...

... is instructed build a boat to bring his family and animals so to escape the flood. Another powerful example of the commonality of myth transcending cultures is in the Trimurti of Brahman in post classical Hinduism when compared to the holy trinity of Christianity. Brahman, the Hindu essence of ultimate reality is at the very core of Hinduism, post classical Hinduism sees him in three aspects. Each of these three aspects of Brahman is expressed by a god from classical Indian literature: Brahma, the creator; Shiva, the destroyer; and Vishnu, the preserver. Very similar to ...
