We have been having some sublime and inner days recent as the astrology is highly conducive to meditation. Today was Sun One. Bodhinatha gave a remarkable upadesha on Gurudeva teachings about transmuting prana and how this is done through different stages of life. Stay tuned for it will be posted eventually.

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.
