    In general Hindus are likely to always give unqualified praise for the foundational texts and and teachers of other relgions whether they agree with them or not.

    I want to add a small point to what Smiley said with regards what hindus, in general think and say about other religions.


    Hindus give unqualified praise for the foundational texts and and teachers of other religions Even when they doesn't have fair knowledge of them.


    Authentic hindu scriptures have no reference to jesus or christianity as they were written(Believed to be) much before the advent of any religion.

    As per hindu scriptures Brahma created the present universe approx 8 billion years ago.

    Carl sagan the astronomer talks about Hindu cosmology's time-scale



    Official postion?What Is it?


    The position held by christian theologists(of major denominations) all over the world.


    This a forum not a pure qna session.When you participate in a discussion it is expected that one reads and familiarizes himself with subject.That is a expected of everybody




    raam did cut off shamabhook's head.Dont you know that.


    That so called incident is interpolated in Uttarakanda which is not a part of Valmiki ramayana.I already explained this.Please read before you respond.There are various ramayanas of unknown authors flouting around with crazy stories.


    That sambuka was killed By Lord Rama for reading vedas is rubbish because Valmiki ,the author of ramayana was a sudra who wrote ramayana after reading vedas.



    Krishna ran away from the battlefeild.One of his names is ranchod.Dont you remember.He ran away from the battle fiel.


    Pls stay away from stories.Since you have mentioned it the story goes that jarasandha was destined to be killed by bhima so Krishna and balrama didnt want the mathura people to be exposed to war at that time.



    Ofcourse the puraans do but.


    So you have to stick to gita and vedas and be cautious on numerous un authentic puranas.In the thread of tenali, raghu patiently explained the damage to hinduism's image by the hindus posting random thoughts with little or no knowledge.read the thread where raghu counters the wrong accusations.


    Thehat prabhu has put this beatutifully.


    Of course he put it beautifully.But we are talking about Official position of christianity.



    Just because the bible says that those who dont belevie in Even in our scriptures such things such as rama cutting of the head of a shudra


    That it is an interpolation by vested interests in uttarakanda(which was not accepted as authentic Valmiki ramayana) can be easily gauged by the fact that The Author of ramayana (Valmiki) is a sudra who read rigveda and wrote Ramayana.Got it?



    krishna running off the battle field were such that people like tenali ram who might not be hindus can question it.Remember his post.Does this make rama evil or krishna evil? So do you have an answer to that.


    Krishna running off?.


    I think you need to resist the urge to post things which you are unaware of and try to provide silly answers.People surely question hinduism but when you provide an answer you should have the requisite knowledge.


    There are thousands of puranas and itihasas which are not considered accurate in all aspects by hindus.


    The Gita doesn't talk about Caste oppression and neither the vedas.


    Ganesh prasad explained this clearly in the forum http://www.hindudharmaforums.com/showthread.php?p=15244


    The humble sage, by virtue of true knowledge, sees with equal vision a learned and gentle brahmana, a cow, an elephant, a dog and a dog-eater [outcaste].(5.18)


    Well, I don’t think 'unbelief' is a deadly sin in Christianity.


    The following christian site gives extensive quotes from bible to support the view that it is indeed a deadly sin.



    "What we do know is that either eternal torment in hell or eternal joy in heaven awaits all people after death, based on whether they trust in Christ’s payment for sin or reject Christ."."



    Moreover, you may have the same kind of choice in mainstream Hinduism: Either surrender to God, or reincarnate..


    Not the same kind of choice :). Surrender to god to reach god or reincarnate.Some people, who want to relive their lives in a better way, may not consider reincarnation as a punishment.


    But again there is always a chance to reach god either in this life or in subsequent lives.In hinduism hell is not eternal for finite mistakes done in ONE life.


    8. Even plants have life

    Certain religions have adopted pure vegetarianism as a dietary law because they are totally against the killing of living creatures. If a person can survive without killing any living creature, I would be the first person to adopt such a way of life. In the past people thought plants were lifeless. Today it is a universal fact that even plants have life. Thus their logic of not killing living creatures is not fulfilled even by being a pure vegetarian

    We hardly kill plants when we reap the harvest of grains.The plants reach end of their life.This is explained in detail at the thread



    So, He said: If you don’t believe in Me you will die in your sins (which might be a rather miserable death, in case you have any sins). But if you believe in Me, you will die a relatively normal death, regardless of any sins you might have.. Nice.. :)


    Unbelief is one of those sins equivalent to murder, whoremongering etc.

    That doesn't sound nice.Does it?.


    Dear Raghu,

    I wonder if you consider anyone but yourself to be a qualified ambassador of Hindu philosophy.


    What he was trying to say is hindus writing here about hinduism are considered qualified by the outside world.



    My friend, I spent the last 2 hours looking through some of the posts you wrote. I can see you are very well educated. Please come to your senses. Please let go of that ego.


    Ego is not a bad thing in itself.



    This is not some official Hindu website.


    Not for nothing the owner of this forum named this site as Indiadivine. The site is all about native indian religions in which hinduism is a predominant faith.



    Words are nothing...try to feel.


    When you write in forums it is the words that count.Your feelings are conveyed through your words.



    Whether you like it or not, when you speak up on behalf of Hinduism in a public forum, you will be treated as an ambassador of your religion and culture.


    Those of you who took apologistic or neutral stances in regards to these kinds of prejudiced questions are not doing anyone any favors. Please resist the urge to post until you have familiarized yourself with the facts. This is not just directed at you, but also the Neo-Hindu who advised that we should go to the Greeks to get our answers about Hinduism.


    Timely post and well written.


    I see nothing smiley.

    NOr i see the word jesus nor the word curse.


    That is gospel of jesus.


    It is correct that it is not cursing perse.


    but unbelievers and idolaters are equated with

    murderers, whoremongers,liars etc. and they will be burned in a lake of fire.(John 8:24)


    Also the residents of places that refuse to receive gospel (of jesus) will suffer fire and brimstone as per bible..


    Mark:10:15-16 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.


    Reference for Sodom and Gomorrha is found in Old testament

    Genesis :19:24 Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven;


    FYI: As a Hindu i read khuran which is written in my native language..... There can be some cooked up stories in Hindu sacred books/as well as in Khuran/Bible, but i say we should not bother about those false stories.


    The verses i quoted are not considered cooked up by any muslims.They are deemed words of god.No muslim will ever accept that any word of quran is cooked up.

    It is not finding faults.They reflect the ideas of zakir naik.


    Here are the references from authentic translation from Arabic scholars




    Here is the link for tafsir(quranic exegesis) by eminent tafsir writer Ibn kathir



    Check for the explanation of the verses.

    More translations here




    Allah will punish Zakir,,,Dear Zakir be carefull. Shut your mouth and recite Pavitra Khuran again and aagin...




    He knows his pavitra quran well.It is gullible people like you who needs to know.As per 'pavitra' quran you are an idolater and hence unclean.


    quran 9:28 :o ye who believe! The idolaters only are unclean. So let them not come near the Inviolable Place of Worship..


    And being an idolater you are a companion of hell fire

    as per quran


    9:113 :It is not for the Prophet, and those who believe, to pray for the forgiveness of idolaters even though they may be near of kin (to them) after it hath become clear that they are people of hell-fire.




    21:98:Lo! ye (idolaters) and that which ye worship beside Allah are fuel of hell. Thereunto ye will come.


    Dear brothers and sisters,


    I found this on youtube and would like hear what vaishanavas have to say.






    hare krishna


    The major difference b/n islam and vaishnavism/hinduism is islam has a desert version of god who wont tolerate worshiping any body other than Allah and gives instructions to muslims to destroy other religions while hinduism allows people to worship the image of god they choose.




    quran 9:33: He it is Who hath sent His messenger with the guidance and the Religion of Truth, that He may cause it to prevail over all religion, however much the idolaters may be averse.


    9:5 Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters wherever ye find them...


    "wherever ye find them" means wherever on earth says eminent Tafsir writer Ibn khathir

    (then fight the Mushrikin wherever you find them), means, on the earth in general, except for the Sacred Area,)



    This particular muslim in the video also claims that muhammed is a rishi explained in vedas.He also quotes Bhavishya purana saying that Pishacha means Arabs and Mlechha means muhammed.Funny character.

    look at his videos http://slnblethers.blogspot.com/2008/05/dr-zakir-joker-naik-and-his-comic.html


    sant. A frank question. Why are you guys, so Avathara phobic. I consider all of them as Saints. I believe only in Dasa Avathara, the original Avatharas. No Godmen/Godwomen, Avatharas for me.


    Makes life simple.


    That is refreshing, sir.


    It also follows that all those people who made claims of Avathara of God are fake.Simple, is it not?.


    This is where you're wrong. What you describe is true of other saints...they leave the body, yes. But Raghavendra didn't leave his body, he's still in his body (or so his devotees claim),


    Either you provide evidence of what u say or you read the official site i quoted.repeating adnauseum what u learn from evangelical schools is of no use.


    I repeated the public event of Raghavendra swami entering samadhi in post 22 from the official site: http://www.gururaghavendra.org/


    Dear Ram,


    Even assuming that you started this topic for fun,


    No, he didn't start it for fun.His arguments are lifted straight from indian evangelical schools.


    He insists on google that some body said Raghavendra saint is alive in physical body.When i quoted The official site he pretends he has not read it.




    which says


    On the day chosen (Virodhikruth Samvatsara Shravana krishna paksha dwitiya - 1671 A.D.), thousands of people had congregated in manchAle to see this rare event of a person entering a brindAvana alive.He also gave elaborate instructions to his disciples.


    This is the typical behaviour of an evangelist.They keep repeating what they want to say without showing any basis .When we provide evidence contrary to what they say they remain silent on the evidence.


    This is so hard to believe when people in the south are described (in Ramayan) as having features that resemble South Indians today

    Where???.lanka Mentioned in Ramayana is not South India.



    Plus, doesn't rg veda mention aryans and dravids?

    NO.Rigveda doesn't have any word called Dravidian.


    You gathered this from hindu hate sites.


    Abuse Alert: We have a hindu hater(Tenali) posing as hindu.


    You're the one posting rubbish in blind rage. Even vaishnavas agree that this man was buried alive.


    A saint enters Samadhi alive and his soul(Atma) leaves the body at his will.This is Called Entering Samadhi.The saint instructs his disciples to close the tomb after he enters samadhi.


    If you are a HINDU you will be knowing this Already.


    Are you really a hindu?.



    Do a google search and find out, if you don't believe me. They say Raghavendra is still alive underground, and that he has NOT left the body like other saints. These are NOT my views, these are the views of gaudiyas, so I thought I could it post here and get them clarified.


    Who said that?.His Atma(soul) is guiding the people in to right path.This is what the Vaishnava site says quoting the devotees.



    If you are really a hindu you would be knowing that Soul has no death.



    Abuse Alert: This miscreant Tenali is not here to seek clarifications.He is here to post hate messages.


    I am assuming this person is a gaudiya saint? It says he's buried alive somewhere in Andhra Pradesh. This is ridiculous.


    He is a vaishnava saint.It is ridiculous for you to say he was Buried alive.No body buries saints.He himself left his body by entering in to a tomb(Samadhi).


    Saint Raghavanedra preached worship of God Vishnu and lived the life of saint.


    In his last speech he said:


    "Always keep away from people who merely perform miracles without following the shastras and yet call themselves God or guru. I have performed miracles, and so have great persons like Srimadacharya. These are based on yoga siddhi and the shastras. There is no fraud or trickery at all. These miracles were performed only to show the greatness of God and the wonderful powers that one can attain with His grace. Right knowledge (jnana) is greater than any miracle.


    Please refrain from posting rubbish like a spoilt brat.


    When I saw this post I was reminded of the Pandas (or Pundits as their Yajamanas call them) who I meet daily in the temple. To these people the only way to get GOD's blessings is through them. Everything else is non-Hindu and atheist.....This class of people form only a very small segment even among the Brahmins.

    Reject those people, by all means.Who is stopping you?.


    Surely people who have authority tend to abuse them and if those abusers are SMALL in number(By your own admission) it should be easy to reject them.





    Most of the reform movements in Hinduism were motivated to get Hinduism out of the clutches of this class of people.

    Are you sure?



    They have opposed every reformation in the Hindu religion because it will weaken their hold. They have opposed all the Saints, Acharyas and Bhakthas.


    Quite natural.Those who enjoy unfettered authority will try to preserve it.


    Does Reformation mean people who are uneducated and miserable failures in life can become gurus and claim Avtar hood?.Is this the reform you are talking about?.It is like throwing the baby with bath water.
