hinduism
    #3475415 - 12/10/04 12:00 PM (12 years, 2 days ago)

I searched for a earlier thread about hinduism but I could not find one. What do you think about hinduism, anyone into it? I have really basic knowledge but I would like to get into it more. boom shiva

very rich
not too clear spiritually. (i.e. wrt realization other than wonder)

such rich dogma and legend is especially good for managing vast populations.

still the art and mythology are ecstatically co-incident with family dreams and personal psychology.

this almost makes one wonder if the Caste system itself is not an essential modality for huge populations.

i think hinduism is very hard for an average western seeker to connect to. it is often overlooked for belief systems that we find slightly more accesible like buddhism or christianity, hinduism is complex. mixed in with caste systems, thousands of deities, an erotic blue man who is irresistable to both sexes... its all very hard to understand is all

I'm definitely interested in Hinduism. I plan on taking a few classes on it in university. My independant research has only given me the most fundamental of understanding into the religion. I've mostly been reading about the Brahman and how the different Deities are pathways of comprehension for humans to reach the Supreme Reality of Brahman. (Correct me if I'm off on all that, but that's some of what I've pulled from my readings.)

I first got interested in Hinduism when I had a mushroom trip that was very influenced by visuals of what appeared to be Hindu women. (In addition to the tapestry of energy spread over my eyes having Indian details)

There is something about Hinduism that attracts me, probably because of the influence that one shroom trip had on me. But maybe it's the symbolism and ceremony involved with it that is so different from the religion that I was raised with (Christianity) that intrigues me. I don't know, but it's been fun researching it.

Hinduism is a pretty damn psychedelic religion if you ask me. Man those guys did a lot of drugs.

psychedelic religion :smile:

it indeed is very rich for sure. my chillum has a krishna image on. I did  not know this when I was buying this and always thought it to be a flute playing angel :smile: I like it very much, its really relaxing to even stare to.

Moonshoe it maybe harder for "western" people to connect to but a lot of the hippies in early 70s did go to india and were very much influenced by it. I guess its better to study everything in its context.

EllemyshShade im happy for your interest too. classes sound like a really nice idea, although you have to have a really good instructor.
