Why Hinduism?

The world’s oldest surviving way of life!

Hinduism as it is called is not a belief system but a science of living. Having stood the test of time over many thousands of years having outlived all civilisations, it continues to grow, flourish and evolve.

The word Hinduism correctly stated is Sanatana Dharma meaning the ‘Eternal Way’ or the scientific method by which humanity may survive and thrive into eternity. In contrast our experts are saying that humanity is on the verge of extinction because we choose to act on beliefs instead of knowledge.

That Hinduism is referred to as a religion and Hindu’s as followers of Hinduism is a convenience of language and cultural understanding. Here are some reasons why

Dharmic Capitalism

How does Dharma equate Capital and prosperity?

Conventional capitalism that runs the modern world requires free capital, slave labour and gullible consumers. Within the modern capitalist market place, resources are ripped from the earth, transformed and sold for profit.

The lifespan of many products is sometimes so short, the time from manufacture to waste is measured in days and the environmental, social and economic impact damaging to life.

The consequences of conventional capitalism are seen by many as a driver of our own extinction but along the way causes great pain, hardship and suffering. Conventional capitalism is related to or correlatable with a certain country and entities functioning as a military industrial complex to dominate our world.

East vs West

Spiritual truth in the East and the lack there of in the West

Gaia as the world tree by Alex GrayThe tree of life giving life – East but being destroyed by human greed, the West

The philosophical and lifestyle differences between East and West are apparent particularly when travelling from any western country to India. It is such a crazy chaotic place and yet there is something wonderful and transcendent in India not in addition to the resplendent colours and the joy on people’s faces.

I’ve written several posts on the subject and now thanks to a line by Chaman Lal, the penny has finally dropped in regard to what I’m attempting to

Creating a Better World

By way of Sanatana Dharma, Human Duty or Humanism

I have written extensively on the failure of modern civilisation that I need say no more. This is clearly seen by watching any newscast – is it only good news? The reason why civilisation is failing is evidenced within our social behaviour and many of our movies contain rather eloquent examples.

In so many movies we have a principal character or set of characters desiring to be happy and they equate happiness with possessions and financial wealth. Yet almost always in these stories, the only outcome of antisocial behaviour is an increase in pain and suffering, often placated by some happy moments for some winners at the end of the story.

The Dharma Manifesto

A New Vision for Global Transformation

If you are a regular reader of this blog site, you will know that the content represents a search for truth, knowledge and solution to the world’s problems. It’s become clear that the only sustainable way forward is for humanity is by following a lifestyle consistent with Dharma.

To put Dharma into a nutshell, it is a way of life to ensure humankind’s continued survival into the unforeseeable future. The modern world seems bent on self-destruction and many are arguing that such a scenario is imminent. Some predict the end of humanity within the next hundred years as conflict, squabbles over resources and the

Comparing a holistic against a superficial view

There is no doubt that the eastern world as philosophically and indeed spreadsheet different from the west. By the east a refer to the landmass that as today east of modern Iran previously known as Persia. Until the advent of Christianity and Islam, the civilised world was guided by Sanatana Dharma all the heart of Hindu (Indian) understanding.

If we take 6000 BC as a starting point of this discussion, Hindu civilisation was thriving and this is one of the proposed dates for the Mahabharata war. It is also a time when the Indus Valley civilisation was thriving with trade to Egypt, Greece and some

A Call for Change

And a New World Order based on Dharma

Further ideas towards saving humanity.

If the world continues on its present course, by the year 2050, the population will be over 9 billion and everyone will have to learn to survive on 40% less of everything that we enjoy today.

That’s less water, less oxygen, less materials to produce things and the way of modern agriculture we will also have 40% less land because that would been destroyed by agricultural chemical use.

At present we have democracies which have been co-opted by capitalism to serve the interests of the global elite. If we were able to wipe the slate and begin again, economically, everyone would own what

What Defines a Hindu?

And could you become a Hindu

The idea of Hinduism as most people know Rosen India and in the Western world the colour and joyfulness is spreading. In the streets of almost every major city in the world people are coming out and dancing, chanting and celebrating. Increasing numbers of people are joining these movements so what about you?

As discussed in previous posts, the term Hindu is one of geography and properly refers to the geographic region of greater India more correctly known as Bharat and sometimes written as Bharatha. However in this modern era the term Hindu is applied as a religious label.

This is extremely confusing because anyone born in India is automatically a Hindu. Therefore Moslems,

Dharma or Adharma

What happens when Dharma is not protected?

What happens when the radiation of Sun is stopped; the physical land will become barren, icy sheet covered and life as we know it will end.

Durga has been a warrior goddess, and she is depicted to express her martial skills. Her iconography typically resonates with these attributes, where she rides a lion or a tiger, has between eight and eighteen hands, each holding a weapon to destroy and create. She is often shown in the midst of her war with Mahishasura, the buffalo demon at the time she victoriously kills the demonic force which is NOT a being but darkness and Adharma symbolized by a buffalo without brains. Her icon

Korea and India Linked

By the sciences of Hinduism and Buddhism

The idea that Hinduism and Buddhism represent a scientific approach to living may be foreign to some but it’s helpful to remember that once when Europeans were still cave dwellers and hunter gatherers, India represented the world’s leading civilisation with a wide global influence.

It is conclusively known that Hindus were sailing the world in 5000 BC and perhaps for many millennia before that. These connections to our ancient past being validated by archaeological and genetic evidence. It’s well known that Hinduism flourished across Southeast Asia and eventually gave rise to the city of Angkor Wat in Cambodia yet even today Hindu iconography and traditions are vibrantly alive across the parts of Southeast
