Are you a believing hindu? I.e do you believe in Hindu God and mythology as factual?
21 posts omitted.
>>855 >yes but it is used as referring to Puranas in this context Source: your anus. >as if indra worship would have prevented that Of course a civilization that worships the *actual* king of the gods, a civilization that reveres strength and honor instead of ascetic cuckoldry, would have stood a far better chance against the Muslims and Britishers. >wouldn't argue further if you don't know basics of hindu cosmology No, you won't argue further because you clearly don't have any coherent response. >prakrit gatha meter is different retard. That's literally what I said. How inbred are you? >btw there was no 'vedic times'. >no one claims that the Vedas were not clearly written before the epics Hm, I wonder if you can spot the contradiction here...
>>858 >Source: your anus. source is the commentaries of all the acharyas belonging to different traditions of yore who know far better about religion and sanskrit than the retarded abbolutionary biologist cum blogger who tambrahcucks like you follow. even the griffith and wilson's translation agrees if sepoys like you value them more. > ascetic cuckoldry very few people become sanyasis and they don't interfere in the workings of the world indra is still worshipped through yajnas > would have stood a far better chance against the Muslims and Britishers if we had good military technology > don't have any coherent response my response is very clear unlike confused NRIfags like your lot who don't even know which trap they are following with this vedicnignoggery >That's literally what I said read the post again to which you replied >How inbred are you? far lesser that 'brahmins' who have practiced consanguineous marriages for generations >Hm, I wonder if you can spot the contradiction here... you wouldn't see conflict between both statements if you knew the basics of hinduism
>>812 What is this retardery of adding -ji before devatas and avataras. They are manifestations of the divine, don't treat them like mere human beings, you morons.
>>859 >the commentaries of all the acharyas belonging to different traditions of yore Yet you refuse to provide a single one, hmm... >the retarded abbolutionary biologist cum blogger ??? Meds, now. >even the griffith and wilson's translation agrees No, Griffith and Wilson do not believe that the texts known in modern times as the Puranas existed at the time of the Atharvaveda. >don't even know which trap they are following And which trap is that? >read the post again to which you replied You first. >far lesser that 'brahmins' who have practiced consanguineous marriages for generations Lmao, so you pretend to be an orthodox Hindu yet you insult Brahmins (for which the punishment is chewing hair in hell according to the Vedas). Nice larp. >you wouldn't see conflict between both statements if you knew the basics of hinduism You wouldn't be able to accept such conflict if you knew the basics of logic.
Hinduism is the only religion that has matched my understanding of God and provided a reasonable set of possible reasons as to why existence is the way it is. I alternate between having periods of doubt where I feel stuck when confronted by Physicalism and other times where I feel like "Holy fuck, everything is true". I'm much happier when feeling the latter. Generally I believe there is a God and Lila is the reason why everything is and that Bhakti or Knowlege can lead us to realization

>The gods complained to Shiva that Vishnu had entered the body of the Buddha on earth for their sake, but now the haters of religion, despising Brahmins and the dharma of class and stage of life, filled the earth. “Not a single man performs a ritual, for all have become heretics—Buddhists, Kapalikas, and so forth—and so we eat no offerings.” Shiva consented to become incarnate as Shankara, to reestablish Vedic dharma, which keeps the universe happy, and to destroy evil behavior Is this true?
>>922 idk about the shankara being shiva part but buddha himself claims about him being Rama in previous births. https://www.wisdomlib.org/buddhism/book/jataka-tales-english/d/doc80635.html >inb4 later interpolations by le evil bammans linkrel is a part of pali canon so authoritative to an extent in buddhism

The Dwaita form looks at God as the trinity of creator Brahma , preserver Vishnu and destroyer Shiva also known as Tamas -Rajas- Sattwa. The modern world knows this as Yin-Yang . This is represented by the trident ( trishul) of Lord Shiva.

>>445 >Who is most powerful God according to hinduism Brahmān, the ultimate reality. "The Supreme Spirit Brahman has three condition, In the form of Brahma he is the Creator, and in the form of Vishnu he is the Preserver, and in his form as Rudra, he is the Destroyer of the Universe."
>>787 brahman is not a god chutiye
>>792 Gods are manifestation of brahman.
Whatever devata you worship is at that moment the ultimate manifestation of the divine. Don't fall into these retard traps of Top 10 Strongest Anime Characters ranking shit. That's how the shaivite-vaishnavite midwit rivarly began.
