Hindu religion

Hindus of the world believe in reincarnation. In spite of this belief of the soul to take on different bodies at different times, Hinduism is a very complex religion.

All Hindus try to be very good people because than they (their soul) will go into the body of a life form that is considered of less value. They try to reach the state where they can join with the eternal divine soul of the universe. The process of joining is called Brahman. There are four methods of reaching Brahman. The three most popular of these are as follows.

  • Constant meditation. People, after they retire from work, do this to strengthen their soul and to get more knowledge by figuring out what our nonmaterialistic part is like. When one feels ready he/she goes and lives in the middle of a deep forest. There again the Hindu believer continues meditating, until he/she feels ready to enter the final stage. During the final stage the believer denies him/herself all comfort of life so that he/she could focus on Brahman completely.
  • During this method the believer “just” tries to do the best deeds as possible.
  • Believers pick out their favorite god, or goddess and pray and give offerings to that particular god/goddess. They ask them to persuade the most powerful Hindu religious leader the most popular of these are the god Shiva and Krishna.

People are born into different social value, or chaste

Introduction

Hindus of the world believe in reincarnation. In spite of this belief of the soul to take on different bodies at different times, Hinduism is a very complex religion.

Practices of the religion

All Hindus try to be very good people because than they (their soul) will go into the body of a life form that is considered of less value. They try to reach the state where they can join with the eternal divine soul of the universe. The process of joining is called Brahman. There are three methods of reaching Brahman. The three most popular of these are as follows:

  1. Constant meditation. People, after they retire from work, do this to strengthen their soul and to get more knowledge by figuring out what our nonmaterialistic part is like. When one feels ready he/she goes and lives in the middle of a deep forest. There again the Hindu believer continues meditating, until he/she feels ready to enter the final stage. During the final stage the believer denies him/herself all comfort of life so that he/she could focus on Brahmancompletely.
  2. During this method the believer “just” tries to do the best deeds as possible.
  3. Believers pick out their favorite god, or goddess and pray and give offerings to that particular god/goddess. They ask them to persuade the most powerful Hindu religious leader the most popular of these are the god Shiva and Krishna.

Chaste system

People are born into different social value, or chaste. The traditional custom holds that people cannot move up in the chaste during one’s  lifetime, only in his/her next life, after reincarnation. This many times poses conflicts among hindus and non-hindu believers, as today’s society is built upon individualism, and opportunities for each persons.
