Tolerance as a Hindu Value


Bodhinatha began by speaking of the troubles in the world today, in the aftermath of 9/11. At the core of the problem is hatred, and we need to counter all the hatred by teaching tolerance and acceptance, two deeply ingrained Hindu values. Hatred is taught; people are not born with hatred in their hearts. Tolerance is taught most effectively at home, and also in the temple and community center.

Saivites all over the world love God Siva. God Siva loves His devotees. For each step the devotee takes toward Siva, Siva takes nine steps toward the devotee.
