Basic beliefs of Hinduism, Hinduism beliefs, Hindu’s beliefs of in God

As you know, Hinduism is the oldest religion on the planet. It is very, very vast and has a large number of beliefs compared to other religions. It is very difficult to encompass all the beliefs of Hinduism in an article. So, here we will discuss only basic and major beliefs of Hinduism.

God of Hindu

Belief in soul (also called as “aatma”):

This is one of the major and most important beliefs of Hinduism. What Hinduism believes is each living creature on this planet has a soul, and all these souls are the part of a Supreme Soul called “Parmatma.” Therefore each animal in the universe has the same soul as a human being has. Therefore, the ultimate aim of human life should be to be one with the Supreme Souls, Parmatma. This is called as Nirvana or Moksha.

Before entering a human body, the soul travels through 84 million species and then is able to gain the human body. So, we should always strive in our human life to attend Nirvana or Moksha. We should not waste our life in collecting earthly things.

After death, our soul enters a new body depending on our Karma of past life. This process continues until we become one with the Supreme Soul.

Belief in Karma:

Hinduism believes that what we are now is the result of our Karma in the past life. The Karma is what we do in our life. The good things we do is called good Karma and the bad things we do is called as bad Karma or sin. Those who do bad Karma, suffer in their present life as well as their coming life until they get punished for their bad Karma. So, as a human being we should always do good Karma, so that our present life and coming life be happy.

Depending on our past life Karma, our soul enters the body of the human being or another species like animals, birds, etc.

Belief in reincarnation:

Not only Hinduism but also other major religions like Buddhism, Sikhism, and Jainism also believe in concept of reincarnation. What it is that the soul is immortal and the death is that of the body only. As we change our clothes, the soul changes body and is reborn again. It travels from one body to another body until it becomes one with the Supreme Soul. Thousands of proofs are available now on the internet that reincarnation is the truth.

Belief in multiples paths to reach the God:

Hinduism does not believe in only one path to reach the God. You can do it by multiple ways. That is what makes Hinduism a different religion.

What we eat is what we are:

As told by Lord Krishna (and accepted by the scientists worldwide now), we tend to become what we eat. The food is divided in three categories:

1. Rajasi.
2. Satvik.
3. Tamasi.

Parents, Teacher, and Food are next to God:

Hindus believe that parents, teacher, and food are next to God. Parents give us birth, nurture us, teach us values. Teachers gives us knowledge to survive in this world. Food is the thing by which we all live. Therefore, these three things have utmost importance and reverence in Hinduism.

Incarnation of Vishnu:

Yada Yada Hi Dharmasya| Glanirbhavati Bharataha | Abhutthanam Adharmasya | Tadatmanam Srijanmyaham | Parithraanaay Sadhunam | Vinashach Dushkruteha | Dharmasansthapanarthaya | Sambhavami Yuge Yuge|

Hindus believe that whenever the darkness on earth will cross its limit, whenever the Dharma will be in peril, Lord Vishnu will reincarnate himself and save the earth and protect the good people from evil. He will destroy the evil and will reinstate the Dharma.

Lord Vishnu has incarnated himself for 9 times so far. The 10th reincarnation will come soon or might have born. It will be called “Kalki Avatar.”

The 10 incarnations of Lord Vishnu are:

1. Matsyavatar
2. Kurmavatar.
3. Varahavatar.
4. Narasimhavatar.
5. Vamanavatar
6. Parashurama
7. Shree Rama.
8. Lord Krishna.
9. Gautam Buddha
10. Kalki Avatar

Some people define Hinduism as the way of life followed by people in India, which is only partially true. Though Hinduism was not a religion and was just a way of life followed by people of India and most of the Asia, it is now identified as a separate religion. There is no single book or a single doctrine, which can describe Hinduism. In order to understand Hinduism, you need to know all the streams of thoughts within Hinduism. Hinduism is a very vast religion and there are quite a handful number of books on which it is based. Lots of Hindu customs, traditions, and beliefs differ from region to region and climate conditions.

These Varnas were further divided into castes and sub-castes. Originally, caste system was not based upon birth. Now a day, caste is determined by the birth. During medieval period, the persons belonging to a particular caste were supposed to do the same business as of their ancestors. This type of caste system no longer exists. People are free to do whatever they want. Castes come into play mainly during marriages. In arranged marriages, people prefer to marry the person from the same caste.
Basic concept of Hinduism:

It will be easier to understand the basic concept of Hinduism if you know Law of Conservation of Energy. For those who have a science background or have some interest in science know the Law of Conservation of Energy very well. It is like this:

“Energy can neither be created nor destroyed. Only one form of energy can be transformed into other. The sum of all the energies in the universe remains the same.”

According to Hinduism, human body is perishable but the soul is immortal and is subjected to the continuous cycle of birth and rebirth. The soul changes bodies as a living person changes his/her clothes. So, the thing which we call death is actually just a transformation of soul from one body to another as the energy changes from one form to the other. This cycle continues births after births and the soul is subjected to sufferings endlessly.

So, the ultimate goal of a Hindu’s life is to attend salvation (also called as Moksha or Nirvana) i.e. freedom from the cycle of birth and rebirth. One can attend salvation when the soul of a person fully becomes one with the supreme spirit called “Brahman” (or God) who is eternal, genderless, omnipotent, and omniscient.

Hamara Bharat Desh, Hamara Swatantra Bharat

Hamara Bharat Desh

अरबों का घोटाला करते, जनता सबसे हुई परेशान,
अब तो कोई जुगत लगाओ, भष्ट्रों का करो निदान।

देश हमारा लुट रहे है, गजनबी की छोड़ी संतान।
बहुरुपिये छुट्टा घूमे, संसद में है सीना तान।

लकदक इनके कुर्ते देखो, देखो इनकी झूठी शान।
घोटाले ही घोटाले है, घोटालो का क्या करु बखान।

नेता – अफसर सारे भ्रष्ट है, कैसे टूटे इनका अभिमान।
जाकर कहा रपट लिखाऊ, थानेदार सबका प्रधान।

सरकारी मोहर लगी है, चले खूब इनकी दुकान।
चोरों का गठबंधन है ये, डकैतों का होता सम्मान।

योजनाओं पे डाका डाले, अफसर खाते है पकवान।
ईमानदार है भूखे नंगे, चोरों के चेहरे मुस्कान।

गरीबों का पतन हुआ, नेताओं का हुआ उत्थान।
जुआ-सट्टा खुब चले हैं, बम-कट्टे से हुये हलाकान।

दारु बिकती गली-गली है, व्यर्थ हो गया सारा ज्ञान।
अब तो कन्या भ्रूण बचाओ, तो कहलाओगे विद्घवान।

हर बच्चा स्कूल चले जब, पायेगा वो अक्षर ज्ञान।
अंधकार को दूर भगाओ, बनके जलो तुम दिग्वान।

आबादी में करो निमंत्रण, स्वस्थ देश की है पहचान।
देश की दुर्दशा देखके, हो जाता मन सित्र-म्लान।

राजपथ की राह चले अब, गरीब और मजदूर किसान।
राजा-रानी, रंक-फकीर, सबकी हो इक ही पहचान।

नर नारी में फर्क न करना, जागरुकता का चले अभियान।
बच्चों को स्वस्थ बनाओ, जननी कराये स्तनपान।

मां का दूध है अमृत जैसा, अब तो कहता ये विज्ञान।
हरे-भरे न वृक्ष कटवाओ, धरती पे न करो अनुसंधान।

बदलते हुये मौसम को अब, लेना होगा हमें संज्ञान।
संतोष धन है सबसे प्यारा, साधु-संत हुये धनवान।

भ्रष्टाचार का रावण मारो, धनुष उठा के राम समान।

जुड़ें राष्ट्र से.. जुड़ें राष्ट्रवादियों से..

‘Bigg Boss’ lends new identity to Seema Parihar’s family

Etawah: Reality show ‘Bigg Boss’ is proving to be a boon for contestant Seema Parihar’s family in finding a foothold and some respect, which they were waiting for since the former bandit queen put her guns down in 2003.

Seema Parihar

While Parihar is far away locked in the Bigg Boss house, her family in Dibiyapur area of Auraiya district near here in UP are gradually coming to terms with the new identity and adulation.

“There is a marked change in the attitude of the extended family members and neighbours who now are respectful to us after Seema has started appearing on Bigg Boss,” her elder sister Manju Parihar said.

“People are getting to know the real Seema, not the one whose identity had been distorted by the past deeds and have started recognising her as a normal and friendly human being,” Manju said, adding that this is also reflected in the behaviour of their acquaintances.

For Seema’s 12-year-old son Sagar, the change, though welcome, has not been so good as it cannot compensate for his mother’s long absence.

“It feels good when the teachers and other students discuss about Bigg Boss and my mother in school,” Sagar said, though regretting that he gets to see his mother only on TV.

Girija Shankar, a neighbour who has known the family for a long time now, is also of the same opinion. “Not just the neighbours but also the local police have started behaving with them more respectfully and the credit should go to the TV show,” he said.

This new experience has also given them hope of a better life than the days the family is currently spending in a dilapidated house. Sagar and the family are also looking forward to the gifts Seema has promised to bring them on returning from Bigg Boss.

Seema entered the Colors reality show last month alongwith 13 other contestants and has spent about 55 days locked away from the world. Before participating in the show, Seema had had a chance to tell her life story through a feature film ‘Wounded’ in 2006.

Once leading a reign of terror in the ravines, Seema had surrendered in 2003. She had some 29 criminal cases of which she was acquitted in 15. She faced charges of 70 killings and over 200 abductions.

Security officer bends down to clean Maya’s shoes; opposition slams CM

Auraiya: Kicking up a controversy, a personal security officer of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati bent low to wipe the dust from her shoes with his handkerchief during her visit to Auraiya district.

The incident that took place on Sunday when Mayawati was visiting Naunipur village in the district fuelled a political storm with her opponents seizing on the opportunity to slam her but the ruling BSP said nothing much should be read into the act of shoe-wiping calling it a “non-issue.”

A video footage of the incident shortly after the BSP supremo alighted from a helicopter showed the PSO taking a handkerchief out of his pocket and bending down to wipe the dust from her footwear. The footage was telecast by TV channels.

The chief minister appeared to be unmindful of the PSO’s act while she carried on with her conversation with officials who had converged at the tarmac of the helipad here, about 150 km from Lucknow, to welcome her.

One official also appeared to be watching with intent the shoe cleaning by the PSO who has been working with her for several years and was close to BSP founder Kanshi Ram.

Singh, a retired police officer currently on extension, supervises the personal security of Mayawati, sources here said. Singh is reported to have said that his act, which has triggered allegations of sycophancy at its heights, was in line of duty.

Opposition parties slammed the “feudalistic” attitude of the chief minister.

“The manner in which the chief minister is behaving and working is shameful and a security personnel wiping her shoes is a deplorable incident,” SP state president Akhilesh Yadav alleged.

He said that it was a sad to see that a person entrusted with the security was wiping Mayawati’s shoes.

“If this government continues then even the officials will have to do the same act,” he alleged.

“She is starting new traditions in politics. First she got her statues installed now this shameful incident has come to the fore. This is a feudalistic attitude,” Yadav said.

Congress spokesman Akhilesh Pratap Singh said, “Mayawati, who rode to power by claiming to fight against feudalism, has adopted the same culture after becoming the Chief Minister”.

“Getting shoes wiped by a government official is wrong and the security personnel should not have done such an act for the sake of self-respect,” he said.

But the BSP thinks otherwise.

BSP MLA Nawab Seyd Kazim Ali said, “I don’t think this is really an issue at all because the chief minister never…I don’t think she asked the security officer to clean her shoes or anything and this is something which is a non-issue if a handkerchief falls and if somebody picks it up and so you can’t make that into an issue”.Auraiya district
