  1. Not exactly!!.. First of all, it is not a Belief system, it is not a religion. A religion is built on set of beliefs system based on commandments but in our culture we don't have commandments or any one could give commandments. When there is no set belief system, there cannot be a religion.

    We are not believers, we are seekers, seekers of truth or liberation. Liberation or truth is the only aspiration or precisely I would say the ultimate aspiration. We do not use the word 'soul' just like that, it is based on one's experience that make him or her realize the dimension that keeps us alive is essentially the same that keeps an insect or an animal or grass or a tree alive as well. This essentially tells it does not matter how small or big the creation(creature) is, the dimension which keeps the creation in certain vibration (reverberation = life = alive) is same. So u, me or a plant or a rock or stone or a microbe or simply a piece of life in this vast existence, all are same. This is not through intellectual process but it happens through consciousness of who u are.

  2. I think the person who is saying abt religions must learn something abt what Hinduism is……..he says it doesn't have a language?!?…then he is unaware of Sanskrit…..
    Known as language of gods……and all the old scriptures of India and religious texts of Hinduism were written in Sanskrit……

  3. Jesus Christ is the only way to GOD. He loves you and died for you. Ask Him in to your heart and trust in him. His blood was shed for our sin. He will answer you if you pray in His Name alone. God bless. J E S U S!!!!!

  4. Without knowing Hinduism all comments were given. Go through Vedas to know about God Devanga(OHM) and know his activities which is source of formation of other religions and his Sanathana Dharma (and found all religions were emerged from Hinduism) having their shapeless God from OHM ,( the shapeless GOD.).

  5. Hinduism is not a "religion." It is not even a single belief system that can be categorized under a single umbrella. Hindus have never thought of themselves as belonging to a religion as Christians and Moslems do. They didnt even call their path as "Hinduism", but rather "Dharma" similarly Buddhist never called themselves Buddhists until the Westerners came in. Buddhists also called their path Dhamma (Dharma). It is the western mind that seeks to classify and put things in nice little boxes that categorizes and calls these paths by some "-Ism"

  6. John 14:6 King James Version (KJV)

    6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

    Please awaken to discover the truth for the Son of God will soon return. Lee Strobel was an atheist who went all out to prove He was not who He said He is. Why not read his book or watch the movie – The Case for Christ…

  7. Most people are not aware that LGBT & LGBTQIAP(2S) diversities are acceptable by HINDUISM ( according to scriptures ). I love the maturity of this religion though I am not a religious person & not subscribe to any relegion. And I am grateful that my typical Hindu family accept that & I feel norm with my typical Hindu family.

  8. Nepal is the only Hindu Country in the world whereas we are 'secular' under the Indian constitution, whatever that means… It would be better if we start calling Hinduism as 'Sanatana Dharma'. It is a living religion which evolves with time, but the central theme remains the same- that is spiritual inquiry by n number of methods. A person can according to his nature, know God by Karma Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Dnyan Yoga, Raj Yoga etc. There are also a lot of esoteric practices like Tantra, Shaktism etc.

  9. Hinduism is what make a living creature to human being…..It is the way of life… Hinduism can't be practiced forcefully… It gives you freedom from bad practices what other religion follow . You can live your own way , believe in yourself and feel the God in yourself that's the true Hinduism…. And I Proud to be a part of this….

  10. It's not 'disorganized', it's so VAST, as vast as the universe, that there's no WAY of knowing everything at once. Only the lucky few get to be born under Hinduism and even the luckier few get to really understand WHAT Hinduism really is, and even luckier few actually get the opportunity to practice it the right way to actually gain God, the ultimate goal. It isn't like a book that has a 'start' and 'finish' you can just read at once and comprehend. Sages used to do thousands of years of meditation before reaching enlightenment, no youtube video can capture what Hinduism is. The founder of it is God, the everlasting almighty, stupid mortals. If a human had written it, then it would have a finish due to a human's stupid, limited brain. If Einstein used only 4% of his brain and we only use 1%, what human can create and comprehend true religion.

  11. What a terrible dumb way of introducing Hinduism. There was no mentioning of important concepts, rather, silly opinions. Hinduism is Sanatana Vedic Dharma and is most definitely organized. This video contradicts itself, first saying there is no single diety, then saying one God has many forms. There is only one God in Hinduism with infinite forms. Also, the one common language is Sanskrit. The different 'rituals' have all been created over millenia by different groups, extremists, radical idiots, morons who invent stuff up, twist religion, etc. Half the garbage 'rituals' that are unfair and wrong, like animal sacrifice or 'sati' are ill trash invented by filthy trash and not part of Sanatana Vedic Dharma. Hinduism is ancient and exists from the beginning of time. Naturally, over millions of years, it has been corrupted by many. Many Hindus, today, don't even know what Sanatana Vedic Dharma is. And lastly, only Sanatana Vedic Dharma is the truth path to God, for no other religion has any actual legitimate means of reaching God.
