Hinduism – A Great Religion to Practice
Hinduism is a great religion to practice, if you are not a follower of Christ. As a member of the Humanity’s family, it is a great way to make your mark in this world and be among the Elect. The basic structure of Hinduism is known as dharma, which is the governing code of behavior, known in Sanskrit as “satya.” If you are Hindu, there are certain codes of conduct that you must observe in your everyday life. Dharma is said to be a guide or a map by which man may know the path to follow to enlightenment. There is no deviation from the path of dharma in Hinduism.
The most important feature of hinduism, however, is its devotion to one’s individual gods or goddesses. All other gods or goddesses are considered secondary or idols by Hinduism. This, along with the religion’s focus on the existence of a single God or Goddess at the center of all existence, makes it unique. There are many gods or goddesses in hinduism, representing different aspects of art, science, medicine, and religion.
There are two forms of hinduism: Hinduism in India and Hinduism outside of India. People of India have always worshiped the sun as a god and there are several temples dedicated to the worship of the sun. In Hinduism outside of India, however, people do not regard the sun as a god. There are no temples for the sun and there is no temple anywhere on the Hindu map that is dedicated to the worship of the sun. The only temple that resembles a temple in India is the Kashi Vishwanath temple in the state of Kerala in India. Even there, the devotees do not worship the sun but rather venerate the God Krishna.
