  1. no one is innocent, brother.if you kill an insect knowingly or unknowingly it will also affect you.i am not talking about original sin of man like christian theory.i am talking about sin occurred through knowing or unknowing deeds in this or past life due to ignorance or lack of awareness that we are divine.before he is good or bad man he is a man.and killing anyone is prohibited.who am i to kill someone?.is the supreme not responsible for his creation?who am i to judge a person.to understand this we should understand 2 things: 1.divine dharma or divine law 2.achara dharma or law of the creation which is prescribed in the scriptures. we(the material body we) dont have the authority over divine law till we realize.we should follow the law of creation. when we know that we are divine in nature and that this whole world is an illusion and that there is no other thing other than one absolute truth then no karma will affect you.till then you should follow certain rules and accept karma. for second question regarding Approaching the supreme almighty my answer is: yes depend on lord for each and everything.there is a process to approach supreme which will lead to the end of the philosophy which we are trying to understand in the above discussions.this includes worship,our duties prescribed by the shastras(scriptures).ultimately these actions will clean our heart and will make us ready to realize by slowly removing the barrier of avidya(lack of intellect),agnana(lack of knowledge) and maya(illusion).
  2. i would definitely get involved and help the old man.that is my duty.i will put all my efforts.if it leads to death of the perpetrator i will be rewarded for doing justice but at the same time for killing a human being (if it leads to death of any of us) i should be ready to face the consequences.this is my karma.may be i am indebted to this old man so i am helping him. what i am trying to say is that that old man is facing this problem because of his past karma.we should try to reduce our karma by doing karma which will either give more good rewards or karma which will take us to the state above good and evil. to focus on supreme is to approach the supreme almighty.with help of supreme almighty we can easily cross the stage of karma(action).
  3. I am sorry bro i forgot to shut my capslock!!
  4. HEY GUYS I AM ANIRUDH FROM INDIA.I AM 20 AND STUDYING COMPUTER ENGINEERING.I FOUND THIS FORUM SO INTERESTING THAT I GOT ADDICTED TO THIS SITE LIKE SINCE DAY BEFORE YESTERDAY I WAS GOING THROUGH THE SITE FOR ALMOST NOT LESS THAN 8 HRS AND I REALLY THANK SUPREME LORD FOR GIVING ME A CHANCE TO INTERACT WITH REALLY NICE PEOPLE. I ALREADY STARTED MY THREAD IN NON MUSLIM SECTION WHICH DEALS WITH PHILOSOPHY AND HINDUISM.I AM ALSO INTO ISLAMIC STUDIES AND CURRENT ISSUES IN ISLAMIC COUNTRIES. I ONCE AGAIN THANK ALMIGHTY FOR GIVING ME THIS GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO INTERACT WITH REALLY NICE PEOPLE.
  5. ALL GLORIES TO THE SUPREME! BROTHER I WANT YOU TO GO THROUGH MY FIRST ARTICLE POINT 3-VEDANTA ACTUALLY MEANS END OF THE VEDAS(VEDA-ANTYA).ANTYA MEANS THE END.WHAT WE ARE DISCUSSING IS ACTUALLY WHEN WE FINISH THE PRACTISE OF VEDAS WE WILL REACH THE END OF VEDA THERE IS A SAYING IN SANSKRIT WHEN TRANSLATED-ALL THE PRAYERS WILL GO TO KESHAVA(NAME OF THE LORD) LIKE ALL THE RIVERS FALLING INTO THE SEA.AHIMSA OR NON VIOLENCE IS THE HIGHEST DHARMA OR VIRTUE IN SANATANA DHARMA WHICH IS THE ESSENCE OF ALL THE RELIGIONS(ISLAM,CHRISTIANITY,JUDAISM ETC).THE REALISED SOUL WILL FOLLOW THAT DHARMA.HOWEVER NOT ALL REALISED SOULS FALL INTO THAT CATEGORY.SOME REALISED SOULS WILL ALSO TEACH OR DO HIS DUTY TO INSPIRE THE SOCIETY.CONSIDER YOUR CASE OF OLD MAN BEING ATTACKED BY A GROUP OF MEN.FOR IT IS SAID THAT HARMING IS EVIL AND NOT FOLLOWING DHARMA IS ALSO EVIL.HE WILL DO HIS DHARMA THAT IS HE WILL DEFEND HIMSELF.BUT HE HAS NO AUTHORITY OVER THE RESULT OF THE ACTION.HE SHOULDNT SAY THAT HE IS OLD OR INCAPABLE.HE SHOULD DO WHATEVER HE CAN.BUT A REALISED SOUL WILL ALWAYS SEE SUPREME EVERYWHERE AND INCLUDING HIMSELF.SO IT IS UPTO HIS WILL OR COSMIC LAW OR DIVINE LAW WHETHER TO FIGHT BACK OR NOT. TO FOCUS ON SUPREME IS TO BE WITH SUPREME OR IN SUPREME OR SUPREME.IT IS THE PERSPECTIVE OF THE SADHAKA(SEEKER) WHICH HE APPRACHES THE SUPREME.
  6. may lord protect and guide us! yes brother vedanta is pantheistic but not "pantheistic like wikipedia".vedanta only talks about existence of one and only supreme or absolute truth.there is nothing else not no one else.YOU SHOULD REALIZE THAT YOU ARE ALSO PART OF THAT TRUTH. no,not even in a single scripture it is mentioned that there is no such thing as right and wrong.if you do good deed you'll get good result and bad deed bad result.however for a jivanmukta(a liberated soul which experiences communion of the divine) who sees the same divinity everywhere will actually do no evil.he"ll also do no good.only thing he does is experience divinity and spread it.he'll realize that the supreme absolute truth is above good and bad and hence he created both good and bad.ABSOLUTE TRUTH IS ABOVE ALL DUALISTIC PHILOSOPHIES.HE IS NEITHER GOOD NOR BAD,NEITHER WITH A SHAPE NOR WITHOUT A SHAPE NEITHER 2 NOR MANY.HE IS NEITHER MALE NOR FEMALE...HE SURPASSES OF ALL HUMAN ASSUMPTIONS.HE CAN ONLY BE REALIZED AND EXPERIENCED BY THOSE WHO PERFORM THEIR DUTY RIGHTFULLY WITHOUT EXPECTING ANY REWARDS,WHO ARE SELFLESS. REGARDING THE QUESTION OF GOOD AND EVIL,IF WE SAY GOD IS GOOD THEN WHY DID HE CREATE EVIL?DONT SAY THAT HE WANTS TO TEST US WHY WOULD HE WANT TO TEST HIS OWN CREATION?WHY DID HE ACTUALLY CREATE?SO WE ARE ACTUALLY A REFLECTION OF SUPREME.WE ARE COVERED BY MAYA(ILLUSION)..WHICH LEAD TO DESIRE(KAMA),ANGER(KRODHA),MISERY(LOBHA),MADNESS OR CONFUSION(MADA) ETC. WHY AND HOW DID HE GET THE IDEA OF EVIL IF HE IS SO GOD,MERCIFUL AND GREAT? SO HE IS ABOVE BOTH GOOD AND EVIL. THE EFFECTS OF KARMA WILL CONTINUE TO EFFECT EACH AND EVERYBODY.IF NOT IN THIS LIFE IN ANOTHER LIFE.BUT A LIBERATED SOUL OR A SADHAKA(A SEEEKER OF GOD) WILL KNOW THAT EFFECTS ARE NOT PERMANENT WILL JUST BE LIKE A WITNESS TO ALL THE THINGS.HE WILL NOT BE MOVED BY ANYTHING.HE WILL BE ALIKE IN ALL THE SITUATIONS.HIS FOCUS IS ONLY ON SUPREME. I HOPE MY ANSWER THOUGH NOT WITH ANY DIRECT REFERENCES( I VE TRANSLATED MANY SANSKRIT SLOKAS FROM VARIOUS BOOKS ,I"LL POST THE DIRECT SLOKAS ON REQUEST BECAUSE I AM NOT SURE I CAN POST IN THIS FORUM)TO EXPLAIN YOUR QUESTIONS TO THE LEVEL UNDERSTOOD.. AND LORD KNOWS THE BEST! MAY MY LORD FORGIVE ME!!!
  7. SRI GURUBHYO NAMAHA HARIHI OM MAY THE GOOD THOUGHTS FLOW INTO MIND FROM ALL THE DIRECTIONS! FIRSTLY I WOULD LIKE TO THANK THE BROTHERS AND SISTERS WHO ARE MAINTAINING SUCH A WONDERFUL; FORUM AND GIVING OPPORTUNITY FOR NON MUSLIMS like me TO GAIN THE WEALTH OF KNOWLEDGE WHICH I BELIEVE IS THE ONLY WAY FOR SALVATION. I VE BEEN GOING THROUGH SOME OF THE POSTS ABOUT ADVAITA PHILOSOPHY AND FOUND THAT MANY OF THE DISCUSSIONS DIDNT CROSS THE LEVEL OF INTRODUCTION TO ADVAITA PHILOSOPHY. ADVAITA UNLIKE OTHER PHILOSOPHICAL SCHOOLS OF HINDUISM, IT IS NOT BASED ON A SINGLE PERCEPTION BUT IT DIFFERS INDIVIDUALLY.SO THE ADVAITA YOU MAY EXPERIENCE MAY NOT BE THE SAME I EXPERIENCE. HOWEVER I AM NOT GOING TO START INTRODUCING ADVAITA PHILOSOPHY DIRECTLY BECAUSE OF THE FOLLOWING REASONS: 1.MANY HINDUS WHO PROPAGATE ADVAITA PHILOSOPHY ARE ACTUALLY NOT LIBERATED,EVEN I AM NOT LIBERATED BECAUSE ACCORDING TO A VEDIC SAYING "THE PERSON WHO IS REALLY LIBERATED WILL REALIZE THAT EVERYONE ARE ACTUALLY LIBERATED!" 2.MOST OF THE MATERIAL AVAILABLE NOW ON THE NET REGARDING THE PHILOSOPHY OF ADVAITA IS THE MATERIAL OF NEO VEDANTA(A REVIVALIST SCHOOL).NEO VEDANTA SCHOOL BECAME POPULAR WITH SWAMI VIVEKANANDA AND HIS GURU RAMAKRISHNA.I"LL TRY TO EXPLAIN NEO VEDANTA WHILE EXPLAINING THE TRADITION LINEAGE(GURU PARAMPARA) OF VEDAS AND VEDANTA 3.TRUE VEDIC APPROACH TO THIS PHILOSOPHY BEGINS WITH THE PRACTICE OF KARMA KANDA OF VEDIC SCHOOL OF THOUGHT WHICH INVOLVES RITUALS,WORSHIPS,DEVOTION(BHAKTHI),TANTRA AND YOGA ETC. WHICH ARE TOPICS OF VAST DEBATES AND DISCUSSIONS INDIVIDUALLY. HENCE MANY TRADITIONAL INSTITUTIONS PROPAGATING THE SCHOOL WILL NOT TEACH THIS PHILOSOPHY DIRECTLY TO EACH AND EVERYONE. 4.MANY PERCEPTIONS OF ADVAITA SHOULD BE DISCUSSED BASED ON PRAMANA(PROOF) WHICH AGAIN HAS DIFFERENT PRAMANAS LIKE PRATYAKSHA,ANUMANA,UPAMANA,SABDA,ARDHAPATTI,ANUPALABDI. 5.THOUGH SCRIPTURE(VEDAS) ARE THE FINAL AND ULTIMATE,TRADITIONALLY IT IS ACCEPTED THAT AFTER REACHING THE FINAL STAGE OF PRACTICE OF PHILOSOPHY THE STUDENT OR SEEKER WILL REALIZE THAT IT IS SOMETHING ABOVE SCRIPTURE . 6.TO UNDERSTAND ADVAITA ONE ACTUALLY HAS TO BE A FOLLOWER OF A VALID PARAMPARA.THAT A STUDENT OF ADVAITA HAS TO BE A STUDENT OF VEDA FIRST. THE ABOVE POINTS HAVE SCRIPTURAL PROOFS WHICH I WILL STATE IT IN MY COMING ARTICLES. I WOULD LOVE TO ANSWER ANY CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM OR DOUBTS REGARDING THE ABOVE STATED POINTS.QUESTION AND ANSWER APPROACH WILL BE MORE COMFORTABLE BECAUSE IT WILL HELP US TO DISCUSS ONLY THE MATTERS WHICH ARE NECESSARY. (EX:WHY SHOULD WE UNDERSTAND VEDIC RITUALS ETC...WHAT IS BHAKTHI,WHO EXPOUNDED THIS PHILOSOPHY,ETC) THIS IS ACTUALLY MY FIRST POST AND FORGIVE ME FOR MY IGNORANCE IF I DIDN'T FOLLOW ANY OF THE CONDUCT PRESCRIBED ON THE FORM.THE REASON FOR WRITING THIS ARTICLE IN THIS FORUM IS BECAUSE I FOUND MANY MUSLIM BROTHERS IN THIRST OF KNOWLEDGE ARE REALLY WELCOMING THE POSTS OF OTHER RELIGION WHICH HELPS IN BUILDING STRONG RELATIONS AND SERVES HUMANITY IN TIMES OF CHAOS IN THIS WORLD. I PRAY TO THE LORD THAT HE'LL FORGIVE ME FOR MY SINS AND THAT HE'LL GUIDE ME TO THE LIGHT....
