Years ago after the last Hurricane, Gurudeva was inspired to get giant shipping containers to serve as storage facilities. It was a smart, inexpensive and efficient way to provide for our storage needs quickly and effectively without making huge committments to building construction. We still have many of them.
With the new Minimela Information center now serving to hold a lot of publications inventory on the second floor, we retired this container. He was dubbed “Jnana dana Container” because he held all the literature that we gave away for free. Today we say “Sionara, Goodbye” to this old, portable, “Knowledge Giving” warehouse.
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.
