The April/May/June issue of the magazine called “the voice of Hinduism,” contains a remarkably lucid eight-page “Introduction to Hinduism” by Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami. You can also listen to him deliver this discourse on YouTube and print out the PDF for your local community. This issue’s center section is on “Affirmations: Mantras to Remold the Mind” bringing you powerful tools to change your life and consciousness. If you think miracles are myth you may change your mind after reading about the miraculous activities of a temple bull who acts as an oracle for the community in India. Murali Balaji gives a great opinion piece on “The Colonized Mind.” The article on the New Age from an Indian Hindu angle, reveals that the New Age, at least in India, might just be the Sanatana Dharma, smartly repackaged for modern consumption. The feature story on Rameshwaran gives us a rare and intimate look at the experiences of pilgrims having their karmas washed away by the waters of the wells of this holy temple of South India. We also meet face-to-face with the young leaders of America’s most dynamic Hindu public relations team, the American Hindu Foundation, which is making the voice of Hinduism be heard loud and clear all the way up into the halls of Congress and the White House. Don’t miss it!
Hindus believe there is one Truth, we just all don't agree on the name and nature of God. To compare Hinduism with other religions, you need to ask the orthodox practioners what their beliefs are. For example, one Christian minister explained that he believes we are fallen beings, not inherently good and need to be redeemed or face eternal Hell. Hinduism believes the opposite: we are divine beings with instinctive, intellectual and intuitive natures. Everyone will eventually become a spiritual being and attain God realization. That is about as far apart as we can get in beliefs. There is really no way that the two can be compared.
