How do Christianity, Islam and Hinduism compare?

There are different criteria on which one could compare those 3 religions. I want to focus here only on the most important one: which one of the three is closest to truth.

Christianity claims that the full truth has been revealed 2000 years ago only to Jesus Christ by the one Supreme Being (called God in English), and therefore truth is only with his Church. All must become Christians and follow what Christ said, if they want to be saved from hell.

Islam claims that the final truth has been revealed some 1400 years ago to Prophet Mohamed by the one Supreme Being (called Allah in Islam) and therefore Islam is the only true religion. All must become Muslims and follow what Prophet Mohamed said, if they want to be saved from hell.

Isn’t it strange that even in the 21st century those unsubstantiated claims about eternal hell for “others” are not debated and dismissed as superstition? Further, obviously at least one of those religions can’t be true, if not both – so why nobody mentions this? Yet instead of a debate on what is true, the “right to freedom of belief” is protected. It’s surely strange.

Now where does Hinduism stand? It usually is seen as inferior to the two big, established, ‘respected’, rich religions. And if one goes by common perception, Hinduism is mainly about caste system, sati and worshipping many gods, which (idol worship) is the greatest sin in both Christianity and Islam, because the Christian God and Allah are claimed to be jealous of other gods.

Hinduism is a rather new term. It was introduced by the British for the ancient traditions in India based on the Vedic texts.

Why was Hinduism introduced? Today’s ‘Indians’ were called Hindus earlier and even today are called Hindu in China. Hinduism would be akin to Germanism or Frenchism.

I got a clue why Hinduism was introduced, when I read that Voltaire, too, among many others in the west, praised the Vedas as the greatest gift to mankind and said “we are eternally indebted to India”. Voltaire fought against the influence of the Church and indeed, when the Vedas reached Europe, it had two effects: the influence of the Church went down and science took off in a big way (intriguingly, it is not mentioned today that those 2 effects could have anything to do with Vedic knowledge reaching the west).

Clearly, the Church was not amused that the intellectual elite preferred Vedic wisdom over Christianity. It needed some strategy to stop losing her sheep.

Now what is contained in the Vedas which are claimed to be as old as the universe? Veda (it means knowledge)  is about what we need to know to live a meaningful, fulfilling life. Vedic knowledge is vast, though most of it has been lost by now. Vedas tell us even about maths, the age of the universe, of parallel universes, even the distance to the sun, how to analyse, how to connect with powers (devas) greater than humans, etc.

And most important, the Vedas tell us the truth about us, the Supreme Being and the universe.

The Vedas differs from the two other religions in a major point:

The Vedas claim that Brahman (Supreme Being) has become this universe. It means all is permeated by Brahman. All is essentially divine including our person. The names and forms are not really real. They appear only as real. Brahman alone is real, and Brahman is best described as sat-chit-ananda (blissful awareness). And the Upanishads, which are part of the Vedas, declare “Aham Brahmasmi” (I am Brahman), or “Ayam Atman Brahma”(This Atma is Brahman).

Does this claim make sense? Yes, it does. Quantum physics came meanwhile to the conclusion that all is one energy and that there are no separate entities anywhere. Incidentally, physicists like Schroedinger, Einstein, Heisenberg, etc. drew inspiration from the Vedas. So far, the Vedas were never proven wrong by science whatever was tested.

So the claim, that Brahman is the essence in all, is surely closer to the truth than the claim by Christianity and Islam that the Supreme is separate from his creation, including the human being, and will send all those who don’t believe in a certain book for eternity to hell. This Vedic claim of divinity in humans gives naturally inner strength to a human being and also kindness (as Brahman is in others, too).

Now why was Vedic knowledge suddenly made into a Hinduism, placed next and yet below the 2 big religions and associated from the start with a ‘divisive’ caste system (which is a social issue and prevalent everywhere) and other negatives like sati?

My conclusion is that the Church was afraid it would lose out when people come to know what Vedic knowledge really contains. They would stop blindly believing but go after genuine knowledge which is there in the Vedas.

That’s why they had to coin a new term and demean “Hinduism” in the eyes of common people right from the start. They were successful. Everywhere children learnt in schools about the ‘terrible caste system’ in Hinduism. People didn’t ask further. They *knew* now that Hinduism is greatly inferior to the two big religions.

Yet there is always the fear that people may discover that they were deceived for the sake of power and that truth may be different from what they were taught in religious class.

In Germany, there is a saying which shows that the common folk was skeptical and wiser than the rulers imagined. it goes like this:

“The King says to the Pope: “Your job is to make the people stupid and I make them poor.”

  1. Your article will never see the day of light on quora unless you state that Hinduism is same as rest, just to appease the rest of the readers whom would rather prefer to bury their heads in the sand. This is to satisfy the political correctness equations.

    People seem to think that everything on quora is correct, I don’t know where this attitude comes from. I am assuming you are not one of those individual.

    Love your last paragraph, This will always be true and right as long as people who thinks that Hinduism is inferior. As always nicely written.

    You seem to write lot less now, is there any reason for it ?

    1. Not aware that I write less. But yes, at the start of my blog I had several articles ready which were not yet on the net.

  2. QUORA is supposed to be a political propaganda machine duly funded by the US, mainly targeting the youth in developing countries like India, Malaysia and so on.

    1. Absolutely right sir, quora is venom spewing tool so US without any base and rationality

  3. Maria Ji, for you it is not new in India and from other countries to criticize or hide your sayings through your articles on Hinduism.
    Hinduism is a fire – no one should try to suppress under the cloth.
    Hinduism is a gushing water – no one should try to control it.
    Hinduism is a flowing air – no one should try to prevent by hands.
    Hinduism is earth – no one can try to lift their legs above it.
    Hinduism is sky – the ultimate,
    Stay calm and just we follow Sanatan Dharma.

  6. This is the age of Kaliyuga where truth is poison to the masses and for those rare few who have figured this out, the best they can do is to continue vigorously in their individual pursuit of it.
    I don’t know why it is so difficult for people to think – if Hinduism is the oldest religion in the world, doesn’t it mean that we were the first people (aryas) God spoke to and since he is all-perfect He speaks only once.

    It has been written by someone very intelligent – “If there should be a conference among the most imaginative minds they will agree that almost all institution of learning are only nurseries of prejudice, corruption, barbarism and pedantry.”

    I am from Kerala, the state still clinging on to the Marxian system of government, rejected by All, who tested it and found it to be an utter failure. Here the role of Pope and King are played by the leader of the party, who makes sure that the people remain poor, by not implementing development work initiated by Modi. He also makes sure that his followers read/watch and blindly follow the party news paper and party channel only, to keep them stupid.

    Very well and logically stated thesis. The fact is Hindu epistemology is superior to all religions but it has been kept under warps due to suppression of Hinduism that was considered primitive by west. Two religions mainly held the lime light due to conversion and focus on claim to truth

  9. Very interesting. Sad part is that even today most people consider it blasphemous to analyse religious tenets. With expansion of science, lack of discussions lead to more unbelievers. Only wonder is how some organizations like ISIL could impress people from different religions to wage a war in the name of religion.

    Swami Vivekananda was once visiting a king who told him that he didn’t believe in idol worship.

    “It’s illogical, primitive and baseless,” the king said. “How can you love a stone? It’s not like the stone is actually God.”
    Vivekananda kept quiet and a little while later, when he was just about to depart, he pointed at a big portrait on the wall.

    “Whose picture is this?” Vivekananda asked the king.
    “This is my great grandfather’s,” he replied with pride. “His valour is known throughout the length and breadth of the country.”
    “Can you please have this picture taken down for a minute?”

    The king was intrigued. Nevertheless, he did as asked.

    “Now, spit on it,” Vivekananda instructed.
    “Swamiji,” the king cried, “Had it been anyone else, I would have him thrown in jail for uttering such words. This is my great grandfather’s portrait. How can I even think of spitting? Visitors and workers bow before it.”
    “Why?” Vivekananda countered calmly. “What’s the problem? It’s just a picture. How can you love a picture? It’s not like the picture is really the person.”

    Idol worship does not mean that you only worship the idol, it simply means you have assigned a form to the one you pray to. It can bestow immense inner strength. Imagine, you have a pen friend. For years, you exchange letters with your friend and he always makes you feel important, loved and cared for. You feel that your friend understands you, listens to you and even helps you in need. His care will naturally evoke feelings in your heart. One day you would want to know what this noble person looks like. You would want to meet him in person and express your gratitude.

    Idol worship is something like that. It’s a devotee’s sentiment. A bhakta says: the Lord who’s been taking care of me must look this beautiful, adorned with the best vastra and alamkara — this is simply a devotee’s way of expressing his gratitude.

    1. Very beautiful. Thank you.

    2. Very correct

    3. Mh if this would be true, if the idol would be only a reference, a direction like the cross for the Christians or the Kaaba for the Muslims, then you would say, that a Idolworshipper ist not beleaving that he can get any adantage from the stone or Idol. But in fact this is wrong, the idolwirshipper does beleave that he is taken high advantage from the idol he is worshipping and they beleave if something happens to the idol or if they distroy it, then this would have a bad result in their lives. So if a photo is being drestroyed the owner is sad and maybe angry about it, but he does not beleave that there is anykind of higher conection between the photo and the idol. So dont make Idolwhorshippen same as memories. But you are right, Idolworshipping started in history threw memorizing of good people. So it started with memorizing them threw Pictures and Thinks and it ended up that people started to beleave that there would be a real connection between the Idol and the Reality of God. So from this point on they did not only remember the old generations of god people, but they started to worship. And this worship is not missunderstood as Hindus are always claming. Its well understood. You thing this worship is bringing you closer to the realty of God and this is simply crazy. If you want to come closer to god threw the creation. you have to follow the way of theese God people who have lived before. You say Buddha had been a good men, made good thinks. If dont pray to his statue, but do as he did. You say a holy priest of yours became a rat or something else and did good deeds? So do good deeds also, but do not waste youre time and energy to worship rats. this is unlogic and yes it can be the result of memorizing, but it is not the same. its unlogic. And God never told you that. You just found your fathers on this way, so you followed.

    Btw, that story is taken from the intro to this great book on Mantra science:

  18. Hindus should proselytize just like the Muslims and Christians to popularize Sanatana Dharma and we should make use of the social media to promote it all over the world.

  19. Your stating of undeniable facts keeps me in awe about how much you can go to the point.
    Obviously, most of the people choose remaining in the comfort zone rather than questioning themselves and their own beliefs. Better comfort than truth, or at least seeking it. A pity. As long as they did not impose their beliefs it could be respectable, as everyone´s freedom of belief. The problem, and a big problem, is that they do try to impose them.
    Thank you for inspiring us.

  20. Your article has a great piece of ancient knowledge.

    The vedic knowledge is still intact – we’ve lost only the real interpretters. The realized ones can shed light on the meaning. For instance listen to these beautiful interpretation of two well-known stories from our puranas by a living realized yogi:
    Birth of Lord Ganesha – The Esoteric Meaning:
    Durga Saptashati — The Esoteric Meaning:
    The silent revolution of wisdom is coming again from the ever-existent religion. The truth will again dispell the darkness of lies. The world will be swept away with the glories of the one who incarnates to uphold dharma every age.
    Let me say only this much.

    Simple language, powerful message,regarding the core advaitha philosophy. Could have also covered the Visishtdwaita which says the Brahman,the souls of beings and the immovables of this universe are all one conglomeration,thereby going beyond ” I am Brahman to everything is Brahman” ,thus expanding this whole universe into one real unit, stressing at the same time that there is no illusion, His creations are real. And Dwaita,stressing that the Brahman (Paramatma),& Jivatma(souls) are two different entities,but the soul is subservient to the Brahman,and humility and total surrender is the path of salvation.Yet, Hindus though worship many many forms of God, believe in the core philosophy that though there are many paths to practice, every path leads to salvation.unlike the Abrahamic faiths. That is the greatness of Hinduism,yet,that is also the exact reason for the Abrahamic religions to be afraid of Hinduism,because once this universality spreads in their area of domination,people are bound to rationalise and embrace the oneness of human values, professed by the Hinduism.Hence the weapen of offensiveness to belittle Hinduism by magnifying petty faultlines that exist in hinduism( Which are already recognised and denounced by almost all sections modern Hindu society)

    Very interesting piece. Have you read much about Christian and Islamic mysticism (sufism)? Although the mainstream aspects of these two religions claim some level of exclusivism, the mystical aspects of these religions is fascinatingly a lot more similar to Hinduism and it’s (general) conception of God and reality.

    Meister Eckhart is one example of a Christian who despite being cloaked in Christian terminology, sounds almost Hindu at times. The works by Sufi author Seyyed Hossein Nasr are also fascinating reads.

    1. Yes, mystics can come up anywhere, but neither Christianity nor Islam approve of them. Meister Eckhart is still not rehabilitated, as far as I know (he was excommunicated) and Islam also killed some Sufis, and others were useful in facilitating conversion. Why should a Sufi be asked to convert to Islam? Doesn’t make sense. The original Vedic knowledge is still preserved in India.

      1. David Robertson · ·

        That’s a good point, but it’s an over-generalisation of the religion, both are incredibly diverse and contain well-established and ancient mystical traditions within them. Sufism has always considered itself as part of Islam. For the most part, the extreme literalists of Islam and Christianity were the ones who were doing the persecuting of mystic groups. Quite often throughout history, they’ve lived side by side. I’d agree with you, that the original Vedic knowledge is still preserved, but there is a lot of intolerance and superstition throughout many Hindu sects as well. All religions have their beautiful sides, as well as dark sides to them.

        Great blog by the way

  31. Interesting blog everybody is entitled to their own views … if you are interested you can watch this movie for some clarity…it is called “The Great Power”…………

  32. I recently had spiritual contact that led to a discovery between the ties between ancient Hinduism and modern religion. Please click on my name and check it out.

  33. I love your pattern about these three religions. I’m an Indian, not a Hindu. There is no true that Christians subjugated vedic knowledge to Indians. It’s the caste system over centuries deprived people even to educate, leave about Vedas. It’s the Britishers, though they looted India, their missionaries educated low caste Indians. There won’t be any unity and social reforms on India if Britishers hadn’t come to India.

    1. What a laughable saying by you Rajeev. Pity on your way of thinking. Being a converted Christian you can support and propagate Christianity, but it does not mean you can spew venom like illogical information in this blog. Sorry to say, you knowledge on history is very inferior level.

      Tell me, all the countries in the Europe were under British regime? All those counties which were not under British did not develop there? Technology and education will flow to every part of the World sooner or later at any cost. It is the matter of political will that implement earlier or later. Do not give credit to British that there wouldn’t be any reforms in India had not English come to India. Such a foolish way of thinking it is. In fact we did not need any Western education system here at all as we were far ahead of our education system and other knowledges in thousands of years when these Westerners were tribes and uncivilized (joke is they called us uncivilized then) killing animals for their food in jungles.

      You call yourself as an Indian and you did not know the heritage and legacy of this country, is really pitiable. The caste system you are talking now is deliberately blown-up wrongly by the English. The very system of Varnashramam was misinterpreted by the British-the looters, only to sustain their stronghold in this land. They diveded us caste wise to rule us, not by Hindu religion as you mentioned. The so called low caste and underprivileged were always given importance in our great country. More elaborate way I can say, not at this forum now.

      Be a true Indian first, then support your converted religion.

      1. Don’t pity me, but answer me a straight question, why do we need caste system in India even in 2017? If you say there is no need, are you ready to give up your caste believing in equality of all Indians?

  34. @ Rajeev Kalingi: First of all, you are a Christian, why do you worry about Hindu caste system? Secondly, believing and following my caste is my own belief and right, how do you interfere in this? Thirdly, for discussion sake, how giving up caste system will bring equality among Indians? Are you physically, psychologically and spiritually okay?

    1. I didn’t ask you leave your religion. I’m asking you to prove the necessity of caste system in 2017. Caste system discriminates people by birth. People in India still deny letting out their rents to low caste Indians. Politics majorly run on caste based divisions. Upper caste ppl ask to take off reservations. Lower caste ppl ask for reservations. Politicians exploit India by maintaining the divisions and spreading violence under the carpet. You still want to be a part of it. Then enjoy in caste physiologically and spiritually.

      1. Listen Rajeev Kalangi, caste system is required or not, we leave it aside for a minute. How do you differentiate people from one region to other region? By their region? By their colour? By their language? By their culture? By their lineage? We need some ways to differentiate people for BETTER identification and just for identification.

        You are Rajeev, what is Kalangi? What is your son or daughter will be called, Vimal Kalangi? Shobha Kalangi? What is Kalangi then? It is an identification, right? It does not discriminate any person. That was the system used in those days to identify the people. It is British then and dirty politicians now take the advantage of this system. Actually you should burst your anger on these people, instead you are venting out your anger at this wrong place.

        I am very against reservation system in India. Bloody reservation system ruins millions of merit people from their choice of study and job just because they were born in so called upper caste. If education and jobs are kept away from caste based reservation system, nobody will say their caste proudly or will feel ashamed to say thereafter. Yes, there should be reservation, based on Merit or financial status and of course, physically challenged. All caste base reservations should be abolished once for all. That’s it. This is the way we can bring justice to all the people.

        For me all castes should be treated same, however Brahmins are prescribed to follow some strict rules, not to differentiate high from other caste people but lead the others to follow the right path in our religion (now most of the Brahmins absolutely deviated from this rules and regulations, is the worst scenario).

        Do you agree my above points?

      2. I liked the way your see things around and if everyone have same ideology and broadness at people around us. India would be so better with its prodigious abundance it has got.

        But people who are educated and even settled abroad hook up themselves to their false pride of their caste they are born in and grouping themselves merely on caste to showing up the world about their unity they have got. However it is hypocrisy.

        You said that caste is for mere identification, what Aadhar is for? I feel the only solution to allow people to feel the equality is, only if Indians could give away their caste and never mention even to their children. They are true Indians. One-day everybody will be OC and equality and love prevails. I don’t hate Hinduism for me being a Christian. I hate if man looks down on his fellow being with a false pride of his caste.

        As you rightly said, this is not a place for such discussion. I will end this up. We are on the even side and I hope Indians broaden up their ideology expeditely.

      3. I won’t go here into caste (it is Portuguese for ‘class’) and you can draw your own conclusions why the flexible varna system was cemented into castes under the colonial rule.
        But having grown up myself as a Christian, I would like to draw your attention to an inconsistency in what you wrote:
        “I don’t hate Hinduism for me being a Christian. I hate if man looks down on his fellow being with a false pride of his caste.”
        Are you aware that this is exactly what the Christian clergy hammers into their flock: that they are superior, because they have the true faith and the true God? do you know how Sunday sermons with loudspeakers pointed outwards, demean Hindu gods? Do you know that the doctrine says that those ‘idol-worshipping Hindus’ will burn forever in hell?
        Well, is this not an officially encouraged ”looking down” on your Hindu brothers and sisters?
        This also, you should oppose. It means you should oppose conversion in the circle where you have influence, if you don’t like ‘looking down on others’.
        Maria Wirth

      4. As far as I understood, Jesus brought down equality in worldly and in heavenly realms. If you read Heb 2:12, Jesus said he will declare us as fellow brothers and sisters before God. In Gal 4:7 God said we are no a slave and made us an heir. Also at Romans 8: 15-17.
        If God showed his equality and called us Children of God to be a partaker of Glory with Jesus. God showed love and equality.

        Here if we can’t show the same to our fellow beings, how will God accept us. Secondly, I never judge all Hindus would go hell. Ignorant people would do it. Idolatry is not mere worshipping Idols, finding pleasure in riches, ecstacy in drunkenness etc is also considered Idol worship. In James 1:27, the worship God loves to helping out poor, orphans, widows and down trodden. I don’t follow doctrine Sayers. I follow Jesus.
        If you don’t love even a other religious person you are judging yourself and you are not accepting the equality and love of God. Most of the Hindus don’t know their scriptures and they worship Idols as a pattern. They do help out poor and needy. Can we say what ever good they are doing doesn’t come from God?

        If God is source of Good. Every good deed done by man is influenced by God. So if there is a doctrine saying HINDUS won’t come to heaven is false. God judges deeds according to his conscience. God is just.

      5. Glad to know that you seem to have missed out on catechism class. Better not to know about all those dogmas.

      6. Thank you MW… I read Bible by my self and understand the way of God towards a Man… I don’t follow any religious dogmas who claim themselves to be from God… I deny most of the Christian Preachers who are not actually Christ followers…

    Vedas are considered the most sacred of all the Hindu scriptures. There are four principal Vedas: Rigveda, Yajurveda, Samveda and Atharvaveda.
    1. Yajurveda
    The following verses from the Yajurveda echo a similar concept of God:

    1. “na tasya pratima asti”
    “There is no image of Him.”
    [Yajurveda 32:3]5
    2. “shudhama poapvidham”
    “He is bodyless and pure.”
    [Yajurveda 40:8]6
    3. “Andhatama pravishanti ye asambhuti mupaste”
    “They enter darkness, those who worship the natural elements” (Air, Water, Fire, etc.). “They sink deeper in darkness, those who worship sambhuti.”
    [Yajurveda 40:9]7

    4. Sambhuti means created things, for example table, chair, idol, etc.

    The Yajurveda contains the following prayer:
    “Lead us to the good path and remove the sin that makes us stray and wander.”
    [Yajurveda 40:16]8

    2. Atharvaveda

    The Atharvaveda praises God in Book 20, hymn 58 and verse 3:
    1. “Dev maha osi”
    “God is verily great”
    [Atharvaveda 20:58:3]9

    3. Rigveda
    1. The oldest of all the vedas is Rigveda. It is also the one considered most sacred by the Hindus.
    The Rigveda states in Book 1, hymn 164 and verse 46: “Sages (learned Priests) call one God by many names.”
    [Rigveda 1:164:46]
    2. The Rigveda gives several different attributes to Almighty God. Many of these are mentioned in Rigveda Book 2 hymn 1.

    Among the various attributes of God, one of the beautiful attributes mentioned in the Rigveda Book II hymn 1 verse 3, is Brahma. Brahma means ‘The Creator’. Translated into Arabic it means Khaaliq. Anybody can have no objection if Almighty God is referred to as Khaaliq or ‘Creator’ or Brahma. However if it is said that Brahma is Almighty God who has four heads with each head having a crown, there comes strong objection to it according to the real scriptures.

    Describing Almighty God in anthropomorphic terms also goes against the following verse of Yajurveda:

    “Na tasya Pratima asti”
    “There is no image of Him.”
    [Yajurveda 32:3]

    Another beautiful attribute of God mentioned in the Rigveda Book II hymn 1 verse 3 is Vishnu. Vishnu means ‘The Sustainer’. Translated into Arabic it means Rabb. Again, any rational person can have no objection if Almighty God is referred to as Rabb or ‘Sustainer’ or Vishnu. But the popular image of Vishnu among Hindus, is that of a God who has four arms, with one of the right arms holding the Chakra, i.e. a discus and one of the left arms holding a ‘conch shell’, or riding a bird or reclining on a snake couch. Any rational individual can never accept any image of God. As mentioned earlier this also goes against Svetasvatara Upanishad Chapter 4 verse 19.

    “Na tasya pratima asti”
    “There is no likeness of Him”

    The following verse from the Rigveda Book 8, hymn 1, verse 1 refer to the Unity and Glory of the Supreme Being:
    3. “Ma cid anyad vi sansata sakhayo ma rishanyata”
    “O friends, do not worship anybody but Him, the Divine One. Praise Him alone.”
    [Rigveda 8:1:1]10

    4. “Devasya samituk parishtutih”
    “Verily, great is the glory of the Divine Creator.”
    [Rigveda 5:1:81]11

    Brahma Sutra of Hinduism:

    The Brahma Sutra of Hinduism is:

    “Ekam Brahm, dvitiya naste neh na naste kinchan”

    When Islam and Christianity preach for the worship of the same God Almighty as the Vedas says so, then why there is the question of comparison.

    Because people misinterpreted the scriptures as well as people changed the scriptures in the due course of time. Instead of worshiping the supreme God only, they associated Avatar/Messengers in their worship which is a severe mistake.

    “There is only one God, not the second; not at all, not at all, not in the least bit.”

  39. Excellent analysis

  40. I remember as a student was never informed leave alone made to realize the greatness of Hinduism or Sanatan Dharma though being a religion having Indian origin, leave alone the greatness of Vedas or the uniqueness of Sanskrit.In India there are a row of institutions for Islamic studies but none related to Hinduism.Unfortunately, even as a youth in college I was made to believe that Hindus were superstitious.It was only after I was 40 that I learnt something about Hinduism or it’s greatness.As a kid I refused to listen to my grandparents who at times mentioned about Hindu God’s,Ramayana, Mahabharata or even the great Bhagwatgita saying it was all a big fraud.I tell you why;I did my schooling in a Christian School.

    1. Unfortunately still so many grow up like you.

    By faith I am a Muslim. In Islam we believe and pray to all messenger s of God that is Isaa (Jesus ),Moosa (messenger of Jews) and thousands of messengers earlier to these messengers.It is there in Quran. All messengers are relevant and taught about one God.I believe all religions lead us to one God.S o all religions are good and faith in a particular way of living is personal.

    1. you may believe that all religions are good, but Islamic doctrine does not. it must dominate above all other faiths. if you have read the texts, you surely know this..
      Christianity also wants to dominate.
      But are they interested in finding out what is the real truth about us and the universe?

  42. The most puzzling thing is why didn’t Indian people take advantage of this Vedic knowledge at their disposal. Indians always make the claim Germany, to some extent France, used Vedic knowledge to create their industrial society. The gurus, pundits were supposedly knew Sanskrit inside out and yet none of these so-called learned men had a clue how to use the knowledge. Instead all they did was keep the masses in darkness. Europe through all its troubles–civil strife , war, etc in the last five hundred years has progressed beyond its wildest dreams. And what India has to show in the mean time? zero!!!!!

  43. Hi Maria i want you to write on big plateform. Would you like to write for big plateform? I wants to provide you more powerful publicity. here you can arrange one author account for you if you interested

  44. These were designed in a way to get grip on the masses, and created stories about their fake background, showing miracles, even to this day they’re working on same lines, specifically on weaker sections in Tamilnadu and some parts of Karnataka. Their head along with subordinate have been arrested since two months along with documents of child trafficking, pornografic material. The head is arrested for misappropriation of funds, as per one source all the wealth has been confiscated .
