Judgementalness – A Peek Into Ourselves

Being the victim of a judgemental rant can hurt.  Such criticism quickly jumps to conclusions about ourselves.  How dare they assume they have the right to critique us in this way?  Whether or not the message itself is beneficial is besides the point. Today’s independent, isolationist culture asserts that judgementalism[…]

The Movie Reel

Can we move outside of the movie reel?  We actually belong there because the images on the frame are real.  Their perceived motion is not.  So our perceived motion through time is not real, but perhaps we can rejoin God outside of time.  Perhaps that is what all the great[…]

Divergenism

BRHM.  In India, you might pronounce this Barahama (Brahma).  In the West, you might pronounce this Braham (Abraham).  It’s a pretty amazing coincidence that my uncle, a devout Christian, introduced me too.  If you consider the fact that Abraham’s wife was Sarah and Brahma’s consort was Saraswati, it becomes even[…]

Selfless Service

“You have control over doing your respective duty only, but no control or claim over the results. The fruits of work should not be your motive, and you should never be inactive. ” – 2:47 Bhagavad-Gita Personally, this is one of the most difficult concepts to grasp.  What is the[…]

To worship God or Jesus?

This is another post in which I’m clearly not ready to complete the subject.  I’m not sure if I’ll ever be, so let’s just call this a starting point.  Growing up, I was always taught to look to the Bible, the Cross, and sometimes even to pray to the picture[…]

Worship in Pantheism

Hinduism claims that God is in all things.  Buddhism goes one step further to claim that there is no God, but that all things are one.  These are the two most well-established religions founded on the concept of pantheism.  Obviously, there are many that follow the tenets of these religions. In[…]

A True Christian

The company I work for was founded by three deeply religious individuals.  It was started in the US, where I was employed for 10 years, and now I am a manager in the Chennai branch that opened a few years ago.  It’s a small company.  Other than myself, I have a managing director above[…]

Empty Space

Hindus and Buddhists both agree that the world as we see it is an illusion.  Christians and Muslims, though they may not mention the word illusion, agree that there is an alternate reality where Heaven exists.  For all religions, God exists in that alternate plane of existence, but of course,[…]

Why I’m not a Hindu.

What’s the difference between Convergenism and Hinduism? When I was in high school, I was an ardent Christian, and I had some Hindu friends.  They couldn’t understand why I would not “accept” their religion.  In my mind, if I believed my religion, that meant that all other religions were false. […]

Jesus in the Eyes of a Hindu

This post will probably be repeated and expanded in various other posts as my own understanding grows.  Since I’m too lazy to spend three years of research before posting, consider this my first draft.  First, let me give a quick runthrough of the story of Jesus as it is told[…]
