Are we cursing the Same God?

If we (Hindus) read our scripts it clearly says that God (Brahman) is one who is formless, never begotten, is Omniscient, Omnipresent, Incorporeal, Independent, Creator. He is eternal and unchangeable. He is immanent and transcendent, as well as full of love and justice.

In Islam: the name Allah is the supreme and all-comprehensive divine name, and all other divine names are believed to refer back to Allah. Allah is unique, the only Deity, creator of the universe and omnipotent. He neither begot anyone, nor was he begotten.

Christianity and Judaism: In Judaism, God is described as father as he is said to be the creator, life-giver, law-giver, and protector. In traditional Christianity God is called Father for the same reasons, and also as the father of Jesus. In general, the title Father (capitalized) signifies God’s role as the life-giver, the authority, and powerful protector, often viewed as immense, omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent with infinite power and charity that goes beyond human understanding.

Sikhism: One Universal Creator God, The Name Is Truth, Creative Being Personified, No Fear, No Hatred, No Image, The Timeless One, Beyond Birth, Self Existent.

To summarize, we all are believing in one supreme power “The God” one calls it Brahman, other Allah and the rest the Father.

And yet, we keep cursing calling it your God and our God. There is nothing as your God or My God. He is just God. The Hindu curses on Islam and Christianity, Muslims curse on Hindu gods and the Christians do the same in return. Each of us calls the respective path being followed is a false religion. It’s like you praise a person in one attire and curse when he in a different one. One never tries to realize that the person is one and is stuck to illusion called attire. Many have and many will get drowned without realizing this.

Sacred Sound : AUM, OM

Sacred Sound :

(Om, AUM)

“The one syllable [evākṣara, viz. aum] is indeed Brahman. AUM is ‘pranava’, that which runs through prana or breath. AUM is the ‘sound of creation’, the primodial cosmic vibration, the universal energy which can neither be created nor destroyed

The Katha Upanishad

-Ek Onkar

-The symbol Aum in Kannada, Telugu and Tulu script

-The Balinese Om symbol

-The symbol Aum in Bengali script

-The symbol Aum in Tibetan script

-navkar mantra-jainism

ओ३म्

-Arya Samaj

In AUM, ‘A’ which begins at the bottom of spine or kundalini chakra is the shape of earth, ‘U’ which begins from throat till the tip of tongue is shapeless as water, air and fire, ‘M’ which comes to rest on lips is neither shape nor shapeless but still exists i.e. space.

Aum is also pictorially depicted as:

  • ‘A’, the waking state (jagrat)
  • ‘U’, the dreamy state (swapna)
  • ‘M’, the deep sleep state (sushupti)
  • The semi circle above it, is “maya” which separates the dot or ‘bindu’ from the being of conscious, subconscious and unconscious
  • The dot or ‘bindu’ is the Absolute truth or the state of perfect bliss (turiya or shunyaka)

“AUM” is one syllable made from the initials of the five parentheses: “Arihanta, Ashiri, Acharya, Upadhyaya, Muni” – jainism

CHANTING AUM / Om MAKES AWARENESS TURN INWARDS. ALL OBSTACLES ARE OVERCOME AND ONE ATTAINS MOKSHA (Enlightenment)

Conversion – Is it a right thing to do?

Once i was travelling by bus to Pondicherry (india) and i met a person who seemed to be very curious in talking to me. It all started with a general discussion and then he started to talk about Jesus – He said Jesus can heal you, he can clear your heart, purify you and you can go to heaven and the same thing happened to me again a colleague of mine who is a muslim was forcing me to attend the Zakir Naik event!!

I don’t believe in conversion, if one has not been able to understand God and the way to lead life spiritually in their existing religion, then how well are you gonna understand the new religion. 

In Hinduism most people follow the vedic way because their parents do so, but in Islam and Christianity it isn’t that way. People read the Quran/Bible or any other religion for that matter in their childhood they do something called as “Religious classes” and this helps one understand their religion better. But in Hinduism people hardly go through Gita/Upanishads or any other sacred texts and we read only when we become an adult or in our teens when religion becomes interesting, which gives a thrill whilst you read. As the base isnt strong people fall to conversion (mostly hindus), we have not understood hinduism properly and thats when we feel Idol worship and worshipping a hundred gods doesnt make sense and this weakness has been a tool to others who attract one to their religion. 

What would one understand in the other when he hasn’t understood thy self!

If one truly understands – All religion speaks of only one god “Brahman in Vedic way/Hinduism”, “Allah in Islam”, “The Father – who Jesus kept repeating” “Meditating on the supreme one – as per Gauthama Buddha”, “Guru’s teaching in Sikkism” name a religion… and its everything same – Formless, Never born, Infinite, Omniscient, Omnipresent, never begotten God. Then why should one convert? If one has to travel to a specific point, he can take any route he wants – Drive/Fly/Trek/Sail. 

Does one anytime think – that what does one gain by you converting to their religion, Do you think the converter cares whether you go to hell/heaven. Conversion doesn’t make sense, its all done with a political motive! 

If you believe in God, believe the way you want to love God, never fear the lord – Its God and God is to be loved not feared! Today love him as a Hindu, tomorrow as a Muslim and later as Jew/Sikh/Christian…. 

All is needed is Belief – Not Conversion!

What it meant to be a Hindu for me

I loved this read….

Cosmic Stories

Even before I opened my eyes for the first time in this world, I was a Hindu. I was a Hindu by default because I was born in a Hindu family. I was marked with this word. Although, I didn’t know what that word really meant, I used to write my religion as Hindu in all the school and college forms. I still do that.

In this essay, I am not going to argue about what Hindu really means. I will do that in the next Blog. In this Blog, I will rather tell my readers about what I have experienced and how I see Hinduism. I am not religious anymore. I wonder if I was ever so religious. I was born in a Brahmin Family in one of the most underdeveloped states in India. It is necessary to talk about my birthplace because it has a good significance here…
