Hindutva, The Rise of New Religion

I realized that like Buddhism, Jainism, and Sikhism (though not in their ilk at all by an infinitely long shot), a new religion or cult of HINDUTVA is in the making.
DELHI, India - April 24, 2022 - PRLog -- HINDUTVA, the birth of a new religion - Recent events have given me a pause for thought. As if times were not trying enough, especially in India, with unemployment, child mortality, shabby public healthcare, an abysmal public education system (barring a few exceptions), rising crime- including that against women, the horrors of Covid and its corollary effects, exacerbating existing economic woes and the list can go on.

To top it all, a rise in intolerant religious beliefs, with some people actually spoiling for a fight with those belonging to different beliefs than theirs.

One thought comes to my mind that people have all but given up hope of even surviving, so why not instigate violence and be done quickly, rather than slowly perish in misery… a very dark thought indeed, which would imply that we have already hit the bottom in happiness index, and have given up all hope about getting a good government, about being optimistic of a better future.

So, with the increase in supposed 'Hindu' intolerance, and right wing jingoism, I got very perplexed, because this is perhaps the only religion on Earth which is not a religion, but a amalgam of multi- varied philosophies – right from atheism to idolatry… one which grew with observation, discussion and experimentation, right from Rig Veda period till Shri Adi Shankaracharya and beyond.

This Indian sub continent is the place where new thinking in 'Hinduism' gave birth to  Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism, and perhaps a few more, including the cult of ISKON, which has its own set of beliefs.  This is where Jews established a synagogue before the birth of Christ, and where St. Thomas came and evangalised, though unfortunately he was sacrificed in what became Chennai.

This is the beauty of the philosophies of Hinduism – which allows different religions to coexist, because the basic tenet or the core of the Hindu Philosophy is that – Whatever route or method you so choose to take you to a higher state of existence, either within this life, or subsequent lives, is your chosen personal path, as long as it is not hurting anyone.

You see, Hinduism is based on the theory of Karma and reincarnation.

According to this, we go through thousands of incarnations, from the tiniest insect to reptiles, animals and finally get the human form.  Our deeds (both thoughts and actions) determine our next birth.

Thus, as an example, a soul reaches the human incarnation, but does extremely dastardly deeds, can even become a dung eating worm in the next life.
