HINDUISM EXPLAINED

India derives her name from river Indu known in Sanskrit as Sindhu. Sindhu river region is inhabited by Sindhus /Sindhus/Hindus.
Hiduism is the principles of Hindus. Hinduism has no single book like Bible or Qoran. Hindus of course have classical Sanskrit scriptures like VEDAs, PURANAs,and ITHIHASAs.
Hinduism preaches ONLY ONE GOD  who is Omnipresent,Omnipotent and Omniscient. HE created everything. Anything created by GOD is GOD`s manifestation and so can be worshipped. Thus Hindus worship the Sun,the Moon, the Stars, the Planets,Rivers,Oceans,Mountains,Trees,  Animals and Humans. The word worship means keeping in deep respect.
Because all are worshipped all areGods or Goddesses under the ONLY LORD.
Wind God and Fire God are friends. Fire God and rain God are enemies.(easy to understand and scientific at that)
Sun has two consorts Prabha (Sanskrit for light) and Chaya (Sanskrit for shade). Moon`s consort is Tara (Sanskrit for star). Astronomical calculationswere possible and needed. Sun right on the head is hot cooler while rising and setting. Thus all planets were observed for goodand evil effects. Astrology thus became the spiritual sister of Astronomy.
For Hindus world was India. After all nothing can exist beyond high Himaalayaas in the north,endless ocean in east west and south.Trbals inhabited in groups all over India  and lived in groups each group fighting the other. The entire world ie India included present Afghanistan,Pakistan,Nepal,Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.
Each tribe had a ruler. Each ruler was a king. Each king was almost God.
Each king transfers his crown to the prince. King`s goldsmith teaches his craft to goldsmith`s son.King`s carpenter teaches the craft only to his son..Royal doctor teaches medicine to his son. And so on. Each craft is transmitted from father to son. And thus each craft practitioners are grouped into a CASTE.Priests and Physicians beong to the uppermost caste called Brahmins ( Brahma is Sanskrit for Scholorship) Brahmins composed VEDAs and similar Divine literature..
 that is holy for Hindus. Ayur is Sanskrit for longevity and Ayurveda is the science od health. Brahmins discovered and practised medicine . But where did they get medicines from? Brahmins  who analysed universe to know about solar and lunar eclipse , also analysed plants and trees.  Some plants and  have  thorns to evade enemies but most plants and herbs have bitter substances in their leaves and fruits. The bitter substances repelled animals from eating leaves . So plants defend themselves with these bitters. But these bitter "POISONS"  in very low doses  are "MEDICINES".Many herbs and plant products were discussed in text books of AYURVEDA , CHARAKA`s first book is Charakasamhita is the first and most exhaustive study of medicines.
People of other castes did different works.
Two kingdoms in Hindu India never lived in peace. They fought each other. The wars were for land ,crops,water,and women. Each such war left refugees,the vanquished, and migrants. Such helpless people were assigned menial jobs like cleaning excreta,disposing of animal carcasses,hanging criminals,etc. These jobs also were inherited by their offsprings.  They  became another caste. But these less privileged caste  consisted of  the UNTOUCHABLES.
THE REBIRTH DOCTRINE
The Lord created  the   universe. HE created humans in HIS form. HE  gave them attributes of HIS OWN SOUL. ONE  COSMIC SOUL (PARAM AATHMA )   created many souls for all of us. Body and soul  given by GOD (JEEV AATHMA) are influenced by nature`s bounty. So humans develop carnal and materialistic desires.  More physical happiness,more rest less work etc.  Anyone who comes in the way is bad.  Badness is put to suffering. But how? After all I resemble my grandfather in height, my mother in shape of nose,my uncle in gait and my granduncle in appetite. This means body and soul RE INCARNATE  to fulfil unfulfilled  desires. After several such incarnations , badness totally disappears and when a person with only GOODNESS  and NO MATERIALISTIC DESIRES  dies his body mixes with nature and his soul merges with COSMIC SOUL of LORD. This is heavenly bliss. Till then all men who are born die. And  all men who die are born again in aseries of births and deaths.

LORD ALSO INCARNATES
Hinduism believes that the LORD  is dynamic and looks after HIS creation always. The COSMIC BODY OF THE LORD THAT MAINTAINS AND SUSTAINS LIFE IS CALLED  V I S H N U . VISHNU CREATED BRAHMA TO CREATE AND SHIVA TO UNCREATE LIFE.
Vishnu`s incarnations are ten. HE incarnated  periodically to protct the righteous,to punish the unrighteous, and to establish universal virtue.
Wheather coincidental or scientifically provable is not known but Vishnu`s 10 incarnations describe  and in order of  stages of  human  evolution from marine beings.
1)Fish incarnation(Mathsya) 2) Tortoise  incarnation(Koorma)  3) Hog( Varaaha)  4) Half lion -half human( Naara Simha)  5)Very short statured Brahmin( Vaamana) 6)Ferocious  fighting Kshatriya( Bhaargava)  7)Civilised principled ethical benevolent monarch (Srirama)  8)Versatile scientific king like human who subjugates evil beings,  protects the righteous , and heads  the  herd  of kine (Krishna)  9) The ruler who meditates and preaches only peace  and(Buddha) and  10) Future incarnation called KALKI. About future incarnation we can not say much but the SIMILARITIES BETWEEN KRISHNA AND JESUS ARE MARVELLOUS.
Yasoda Krishna  and Y(J)esus Chris(Kris)t(na)   phoenetically similar names.
Krishnawas born in captivity – Christ was born in a manger.
Infant Krishna faced threat to His life from a cursed uncle  a ruler. Infant Jesus faced threat to his life from Edomite(cursed)Herod.
Vasudev Krishna`s father secretly carried new born Krishna in a basket and kept HIM  by YASODA`S side– Joseph the father of Jesus  secretly carried HIM to Egypt.
Krishna is a COW BOY,protecting cows and helping dairy women in every way. Jesus was a
GOOD SHEPHERD  taking good care of all sheep.
Krishna subdued the sinner serpent Kalindi while all others were watching  giving them the promise of victory over sin and death. – Jesus subdued sin and  death by defeating the designs of Satan.
Krishna had eight consorts and sixteen thousand loves whom he treated as His own.
Jesus had nine chuches to which Paul wrote letters . And Jesus has countless churches  which Jesus "married "  as the "BRIDE SHEEP"
The attraction between Krishna and His devotees is similar to the love between Jesus and churches , ONE OF SPIRITUAL BLISS MANIFESTING AS LOVE
                     HINDU GODS HAVE ANIMALS OR BIRDS AS VEHICLES
                  —————————————————————————————–
After taking good care of evolution , Hindus took better care of nature and ecology .
Lord Vishnu sleeps on a seven hooded serpent and  travels on eagle. His consort Lady Lakshmi who can give anything to anybody travels on an owl.
Shiva travels on a bull . His sons Kumaraswamy  and Ganapathy travel on peacock and mouse respectively.
