  1. Sorry, the above was posted by me. Regards to Nastika! May God forgive you.
  2. you are right subroto. keeping out mc donald's and the like is not going to solve the problem. it has to start from childhood in a step by step manner. and yes, our scriptures are vast and complicated which one cannot grasp that easily. but it has a wealth of knowledge. as i make an attempt to learn more about hinduism now, i realize that there is a wealth of knowledge here, so complete, so well planned and so scientific in its approach. isnt it sad that probably in a generation or two, these scriptures and their interpretation will be lost, unless something is done about passing them on to our children?
  3. Does anyone here know the exact meaning of the mrityunjaya mantra? Om! Trayambakam yajamahe, Sungandhim pushthi vardhanam. Uruvarukkam iva bandhanaat, mrityormukshiya maamritaat.
  4. what is the difference between the brahma gayatri and the surya gayatri? please enlighten me about it.
  5. Hinduism is one of the most flexible and tolerant religions in the world. But we have chosen to ignore our texts and scriptures. Over the years, our scriptures and the wealth of information they carry have been lost because they have been exclusively in the hands of the pandits. One needs to see the wisdom of Swami Vivekananda, who demanded that the scriptures be known to all. A devout Muslim would have the maulvi teaching the Quran to his children. A devout Christian would have his child go for catechism classes. But do us hindus teach our children anything? Probably in bits and pieces about some Ramayana or Mahabharata or the Gita. Besises, most of what they are exposed to is invalid superstitions baseless customs which in turn makes them lose faith in Hinduism. We must find a way to expose our children to the Vedas, the Puranas and our texts in detail and not just skim the brim.
  6. Is there any particular time for chanting the Gayatri Mantra? Can one chant mantras while lighting the lamp, while preparing the lamp and incense etc. or should one finish all that, light the lamp and then, close eyes to chant them?
