Why I Believe in Hinduism and NOT in Hindutva

For some very simple reasons:

Like all other ancient sources of wisdoms, Hinduism shows us many ways of living a harmonious lifeβ€”a life lived not only with ourselves and our narrow in-group, but with all other living beings.

This is what the entire Indian philosophy/religion/culture is about: seeing connections where others see separation. Hindu/Indian philosophy doesn't require us to live as 'Hindus,' but as partakers of a universal whole.

In this outlook, the idea of God acts as a metaphor for this connection, this oneness: 'because we all are part of the One, we are the One.'

However, the ideology of Hindutva is the complete opposite to all of this. It not only plays down the mental-spiritual wellbeing of the individual, but the entire notion of beauty and happiness as well. Instead, it appeals to people’s megalomania and paranoia (β€œWe Hindus have always been the best, but now we are in danger”), and instigates their anger and violence. All these qualities are the most inimical to a good life. I’ve never met a person who is angry and happy at the same time.

So, I would rather be a humble seeker travelling on the path of Sanatana dharma towards a good, fulfilling life than be a 'proud' proponent of Hindutva and spend the precious moments of my life in constant bitterness and negativity.

Edit: To those who have cared to read and comment on this post: thanks a lot for your time and efforts!

And to those who disagrees with me, even passionately: I deeply respect your views and grievances, and sincerely hope to gain new perspectives from your comments.

Thank you all!

Dalits who have hope in Hinduism

A dalit guy in this sub posted on chodi that how he was discriminated by Upper Caste . Post was fine but when i was scrolling in the comment section i saw this guy saying he still believes in Hinduism and Hinduism can reform . .. .. I myself belong to lower caste and i don't know why people in my community have certain obsession with seeking validation from the upper caste Hindus and taking certificates of equality from them . They still love the relegion which forced them to clean toilets for thousand of years . ... .. If there are more Dalits on this page i want to send a message to them , Hindu unity is a myth , It can never happen .Hinduism is too rotten to reform even in upcoming 200-300 years , No one will be ready to give up their caste identity . Only solution to escape from this discrimination is to leave this relegion itself so that at least your next generation don't face the same discrimination you have faced . Hinduism is only harming dalit progress nothing else , Move to another relegion as soon as you can and convince your dalit brothers to do the same . Ideal Hinduism have no respect for dalits , We used to clean toilets even in Ram Rajya . And lastly Please don't beg for certificate of equality from Upper caste everywhere , We are equal , If you can't respect us you will loose us from your community .

Jakim calls for calm, says authorities investigating video of (Malaysian Indian) man claiming to have converted his Muslim (Indonesian) wife to Hinduism

I saw this story in /r/Malaysia. This is an excerpt of the story

>A video of a man narrating how he managed to convert his Muslim wife to Hinduism had recently surfaced on social media, triggering a large part of the Muslim community.
>
>Malaysian Shariah law prohibits Muslims from converting out of the religion while non-Muslims looking to get married to Muslims are required to convert to Islam for the matrimony to be officially recognised.
>
>A second video later surfaced depicting the man’s wife explaining to the camera how she is a citizen of Indonesia, and that she had gone through the process of converting out of Islam while in Indonesia.
>
>However, several outraged netizens felt compelled to report the incident to authorities, with a few even uploading their police reports on social media

This is the original video

This is the second video with the Indonesian woman explaining what happened. She went to Indonesia to converted to Hinduism. NOTE: If you are Indonesian the comment section is very toxic. Given it a couple of days, once the Indonesian news media finds out, this will blow up

Some people have already filed police reports

A coup

Stop Islamisation of Hinduism

People who are giving example of how one cant make any content to show prophet in bad light and calling for ban just like they did to Salman Rushdie and Taslima Nasrin- you do realise that you are becoming them, don't you?

This is Islamisation of Hinduism. I watched Tandav. Part where it talked about Ram through Shiva, it was not funny. That's it. No need to ban it. It was a stupid skit.

People who are so offended by this, can adopt Islam and then they can call for fatwa against everything they find offensive. In Hinduism, there's no place for one person to represent everyone. I will not follow institutionalised religion- be it Christianity or Islam. I want to pratice Sanatan Dharama and no one dare Islamise it.

My mother said a very big thing for Hinduism today.

My mom is spiritual singer in Gurudawaras and mandir. She is a Raggi. I was discussing Rinku and other Hindus souls that were murdered in India with her. She asked me β€œshe said do you know why God only take birth in Sanatana /Hindu body only so many time?” I said No! She said coz it is the most purest and full of devotion and said she believes that Ghara Bhar Chukka hey (an earthen pot is filled with blood of devotees) There will a person born again in Hindu/ Sanatana body that will unite and transform Hinduism into a warrior form so vicious that they will not only stop at just killing a enemy. They will be born to vanish everyone and everything. I believe her now Ghara Bhar gaya hey, Shiv sun raha hey, aur woh abh Maha samadhi sey bahr aaengay and apni Aankhen kholengay. There will be a change coz i am changed, today my eyes are filled with tears for Rinku.

He was shouting Jai Shri ram until he was silenced by loss of blood. He was a strong kid. Maa bhagwan ka dusra ropp hoti hey. I believe my mother and Rinku mothers voice of cry to God.

Introduction to Hinduism

Hello r/Chodi. Love from Nepal. Although India and Nepal's relationship has been of that of an uncle and nephew (one moment you're fucking us in the ass the other time you're giving us sweets), although we have our animosity in the form of bahadur, dhoti , momo and panipuri (honestly it's momo not momos) we still share the same love for Hinduism.

Recently as i have matured I have realized that all these missionary randis are so prelevant in our society. From the textbook of a child to hollywood/bollywood movies we are being fed propogandas. Motherfucker I have studied about how the world was created (Adam and Eve) and Noah's flood but I didn't know the creation story of Hinduism, nor the sacrifices of Shiva. I know about Mahabharat and Ramayan from Doordarshan. To find materials about hinduism online is vain as there are no contents but stories about Bible and Allah u akbar is found easily.

My request to you chodians is that: please suggest me some books, websites, authors or writings that will help me understand or atleast let me know about hinduism. In chronological order, in timelines that will help to understand and in simple plain english if possible.

Jai Shree Ram!!

Best Definition of Non Duality I have ever Seen by Huang Po - Different to Hinduism

So, to keep this as short as I can, Transmission of Mind by Zen Master Huang Po is quite literally hands down the best book on Non Duality I have ever read. The only other Mystic to rival him in my opinion was Ibn Arabi.

Now here is the quote, in my opinion this quote highlights how confusing a lot of the Hindu interpretations are on non duality, they teach us the world is an illusion, the only Reality is the Self/God they often claim and the illusion of the world is to be dismissed and turned away from.

Also as previously stated, the ideas about killing the ego and other such stuff also are dismissed via the following statement from Huang Po. Some gurus even teach us to renounce the world, Huang Pos approach was much more truthful in my opinion. He states outright in the book, that turning away from the world is a very dumb thing to do and is a sign of living in duality.

'The existence of things as separate entities and not as separate entities are both Dualistic concepts. As Bodhidharma said : 'There are separate entities and there are not, but at the same time they are neither the ONE nor the OTHER, for relativity is transient.' If you disciples cannot get beyond those incorrect orthodox teachings, why do you call yourselves Zen Monks? I exhort you to apply yourselves solely to Zen and not to go seeking after wrong methods which result in a multiplicity of concepts.'

Now I know this is a potentially controversial post seeing as most people see Non dual teachings as stemming from Hinduism, but I am looking forward to this debate, as there are some great minds on this forum! I only recently realised why I never enjoyed the Hindu teachings on this subject and felt they simply made me more confused, seeing the world as an illusion damaged me and never liberated me as I was hoping it may.

How do i approach Hinduism with proper respect?

I have always considered myself a spiritual person and have never believed that a single religion has a monopoly on truth, but that all are varying interpretations of the same divine reality. Because of this i have never tied myself down to a specific dogma and begun studying various religions to discern the truth for myself. As part of my spiritual journey i had begun practicing meditation, and while researching online i read more and more articles relating to Hinduism. From the little i have read thus far, the principles of Hinduism align very closely with the personal beliefs I've gained in my own life. And while reading on mantras i felt especially attracted to the goddess kali.

I come from southern California and was raised in a catholic household, so any substantial interaction with indian culture up to this point for me has been slim at best. I now wish to continue learning with an emphasis on kali and shaktism.

So my question is how do I approach learning and practice in a way that is respectful? I know that online Hinduism can been whitewashed and appropriated, especially kali from what ive seen. Since this is all new to me, I am afraid of learning from improper or misguided sources.

If possible, since the pool of resources seem so immense, any tips, recommendations, or nudges in the right direction would also be greatly appreciated!

Thankyou and blessings to all
