Hinduism strictly believes in Existence of Brahman God Almighty the One and only One

The Advaita doctrine propagated by Adi Sankara relates to non-dual concept of God Almighty. As per Adi Shankaracharya nothing other than God Almighty existed in system.

What is Brahman in Hinduism Bhagavad Gita Advaita philosophy Adi Sankara

Precepts of spirituality explained in scriptures of Hinduism could never be understood literally, they demand reading in between the lines. As detailed in Bhagavad Gita Brahman (God Almighty) was beyond any definition, detail or explanation. All explanations of Brahman were beyond comprehension of words. Simplicity is not the right word. It is following path of spirituality not simplicity human beings […]

Eastern Philosophy Vs Western Philosophy the Comparison

Can the surface of ocean fathom the bottom? Can one bank of river meet the other bank? The Western philosophy was too immature to be compared with Eastern philosophy, the real philosophy of life.

Spiritual but not Religious Guides Leadership Advisor People

All my life I could never find one single serious traveler of spiritual path. All were busy in rituals (path of religion).

Indulging in Contemplation Meditation The Hinduism Way

Contemplation in no way relates to thinking. Contemplation is the art of separating right from wrong, truth from false.

This faculty of discrimination is not that easily exercised. […]

The third category consisted of Vaishyas… the trading […]

Path of Self Enquiry Neti Maharishi Ramana Realize Self Realize God

Born in a Jain family from six years of age I was eager to know everything about God. Something within told me to go in search of God in this very life.

Who created God Concept of God Bhagwan Karta Paramatma Sanatana Purusha Hinduism

The concept of God can be ascribed to first words of God delivered to mankind in form of Vedas (Hinduism revelations).

Human Life Human Form a Buddha in Making

Human form is the highest manifest stage in cosmic life cycle. It was only in human form… our soul atman, the consciousness within liberated self from cycle of birth and death forever.
