Today is a doubly auspicious day as New Year’s day coincides with Yogaswami’s Annual Maha Samadhi which is celebrated on the April Aslesha nakshatra which also occured on New Year day today. Yogaswami’s shrine is specially decorated at the Aadheenam today and a simple arati was performed before our early morning meditation.

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.
