Hindus- Suffering and gods

  “As is birth so is death, and so is the dwelling in the mother’s womb thus, is the manifest the misery of the world, how can there be a satisfaction here for thee.” Hindus know that the life is full of suffering and miseries and therefore man dwells in the ocean of agony (Bhavsager) and try to overcome this ocean of distress.   To get rid of sufferings is the only way to follow the path or religion. The god is the only touch stone which will remove sufferings from life. God can take them out from this Bhavsagar- ocean of suffering- and only god is the one who is testing, punishing and will one day he will bless His showers. The god or gods are one who is omnipotent, omnipresent and also a father who is testing his sons like that of Christianity and Islam and now pleasing god or gods with sweets and offering are the only way to get blessings. For Hindus, god wants his devotees to sing songs and make prayers and he will one day listen to these prayers and again bless showers of w

Samkhya - How the Universe is made

  Know through Vedas   There are three Gunas- elements- in the universe (Prakarti) and all three of them are different from each other and having different essence and attribute. When these three Gunas are at equilibrium then there is no creation in the universe. The Universe remains static and unmoved. But when one Guna try to predominates over the other and there is about a commotion in the bosom of Universe (Prakarti) the creation started. This wonderful description of creation came from the oldest school of Samkhya Hindu philosophy that describes the creation and continuous flow of this world with the help of three different elements. For Samkhya, universe is not emerged out of nothing or from anything but there is an logical means for the creation. Samkhya described the metaphysics with great caution and logical interpretation of oneness and many. For Samkhya creation is evolution and universe is Prakarti and this Prakarti evolved within itself because this Prakarti is

Hindus' liberation and Salvation

Is reality a pure consciousness?

 Reality is eternal and permanent; that it is blissful because it is permanent for what is permanent is bliss and what is momentary is misery Absolute idealism (Vijnapti- matrata- Siddhi)  If reality is pure consciousness then the external objects does not exist outside of thoughts.   All the three worlds do not exist outside of thought. Mind, consciousness, knowledge are synonyms. External objects depend on thoughts like the hair seen floating in the atmosphere or life the perception of the double moon. It is declared that the phenomenal is like water in a jar, while the absolute is like the vast ocean. The intellect is transcended in the last meditation in which the meditation becomes one with the Real. The pure knowledge is called ‘Shramnaya’ as well as Brahmanya. But critics urged that is external objects do not exist then we cannot account for their spatial determination and their temporal determination. That means that the determination of the perceiving stream of conscious

Buddhism - How to know the universe

Is there such knowledge exist which can be conceived without knowing the empirical universe, material objects and without sensory data? Is it possible to know the mystery of universe without keeping faith on sensual information and without the help of intellect? And Buddhist already set up that reality do not exist out of the sphere of consciousness and in reality there is no objective or material world then how can one have a knowledge of object or of universe? Yes and Buddhist tried their best to form such knowledge not based on empirical things. They said that the mediate (Adhyavasaya) type of knowledge is that knowledge whose validity is independent of all sense expressions. It is, thus, a logical law which guides the intellect and is not dependent on the empirical sense data. They explain the inferential aspect of such knowledge through Apoha (view of meaning) and in that Buddhist evoked the principle of Adhyavasaya (mediate) knowledge. The knowledge of the particular thin

Dilemma of Buddha and Nirvana

Kshitiz Gaur Buddha remained silence on the most fundamental questions of metaphysics and therefore it need probe into the reason of that silence. The searching of his silence gave birth to dialectic inquiry. Nagarjuna took this task to explain the silence of Buddha and came out with the theory of middle path. The Buddha announced fourteen things to be inexpressible   (1)    Whether the world is – (a) eternal, (b) or not (c) or neither. (2)    Whether the world is (a) finite (b) or not (infinite) (c) or both (d) or neither. (3)    Whether the Tathagata (reality) (a) exist after death (b) or does not (c) or both (d) or neither. (4)    Whether the soul is- (a) identical with the body (b) or different from the body. Nagarjuna tried to structure these questions and on silence of Buddha and refusing to give any categorical answer to such questions on which Buddha used to say that he neither believed in absolute affirmation nor in the absolute negation. His position was one o
