Query: Basic Beliefs of
Basic Beliefs of Hinduism... hinduism beliefs
consisted of five basic fundamentals of life that directly result from teachings of Bhagavad Gita... the
doctrine given to mankind by Lord Krishna... an avatar of his era (God manifest in human
1. As stated in Bhagavad Gita the most basic belief of Hinduism is... God Almighty is one and
only one... termed Brahman in Hinduism! As detailed in Doctrine of Maya (veil of ignorance) preached and advocated
Adi Shankaracharya... apart from God Almighty nothing existed in whole cosmos.
As per Adi Shankara... the whole cosmos is built up
of basic building block of cosmic system... clusters of atoms and molecules! Viewed from senses point of view...
things appeared solid! In truth... all is gaseous formation... including human beings! Every single form of life is
but a cluster of atoms and
Looking at boundary of cosmos... we found none! If there exists a boundary... then what
beyond! As per Adi Shankaracharya... as per doctrine of Maya... the whole cosmos existed only in thoughts of God
Almighty! So is the surmise of Hinduism... teachings of Bhagavad Gita!
2. The second most important belief of Hinduism is... we are a soul atman... a cosmic consciousness on its cosmic
journey of 8.4 million manifestations... that entailed an earthly journey of 96.4 million years! In its journey of
8.4 million manifestations... every soul atman is expected to regain its lost original pure prime pristine
It is only in human form a soul atman finally liberated self from cycle of birth and death
forever when human beings gained enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha)! Gaining
enlightenment is the ultimate goal of life for every human being. We may or may not want to travel spiritual
path... but it is a prime necessity of our soul atman... the spirit within!
Travel in human form was the most pleasant experience for a soul atman. We are not a human
body encasing a soul atman... we are prime consciousness beyond comprehension of most human beings! As a human
being it is our prime duty to assist our soul atman in reaching cosmic end of life... 8.4 millionth
Only by travelling spiritual path... assimilating pearls of wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita
human beings finally gained enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)! Stage of enlightenment is never reached via path of
religion... path of rituals!
3. As per Hinduism beliefs a soul atman... the spirit within is indestructible... could neither be created nor
destroyed! A soul is termed atman in Hinduism. When a soul atman never dies... it could never reincarnate... take
rebirth! The entire journey of 8.4 million manifestations in the life of a soul atman is one single span of life...
totally unbroken uninterrupted!
The reincarnation theory... the concept of rebirth in Hinduism and other religions is totally
flawed! After death of present body... rebirth of soul atman in another body simply could not occur... so was not
to be! As per Bhagavad Gita after death of mortal body... the soul atman manifested a new body based on residual
balance of karma of that moment!
For any reason if matching parents are not available on mother earth... the soul atman
hibernated either in heaven or hell (termed Swarga and Naraka in Hinduism)! In heaven... if the residual balance of
karma was positive and hell... if negative! Both heaven and hell existed in sun... heaven in core of sun where
temperatures exceeded millions of degrees centigrade.
It is in such high temperatures our soul atman felt comfortable. Hell existed in periphery of
sun where temperatures are considerably less! It is in such low temperatures our soul atman suffered for eternity!
Moment matching parents became available on mother earth... the hibernating soul atman immediately manifested a new
body and started a new cycle of life!
4. The most potent of all Hinduism beliefs is existence of God Almighty in all its glory. Those who refuted
existence of God Almighty never get to enjoy wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita! As stated in Bhagavad Gita... it is
God Almighty that exploded self with a big bang to form new cosmos! God Almighty is the singularity that existed at
the time of big bang.
As detailed in Bhagavad Gita Hinduism, God Almighty... the cluster of all pure souls’ atmans
in cosmos at a given moment of time occupied the volume of half a thumb! This prime ethereal cosmic energy... the
size of half a thumb... the combined power of all pure souls’ atmans in cosmos unable to contain itself for long in
its prime pure state explodes with a big bang!
And why does God Almighty explode self? When dissolution of old cosmos occurs (termed Pralaya
in Hinduism)... Devoid of dross impurities within the size of entire cosmos reduced to size of half a thumb! This
singularity... the size of half a thumb... we called God Almighty caused big bang to form a new cosmos... start a
new journey of life!
If God Almighty did not exist... if we disputed existence of God Almighty... how could theory
of big bang hold good? In absence of God almighty... existence of a soul atman in whole cosmos becomes disputed! If
we exist... if life existed in cosmic system... so does God Almighty! God existed within every living being in
miniscule form as our soul atman.
5. It is not a central belief of Hinduism but an absolute fact of life that enlightenment could only be gained via
path of Hinduism... never any other religion! In the entire history of mankind not hundreds but thousands gained
enlightenment in Hinduism! On contrary in West apart from Jesus Christ and Prophet Mohammed... none gained
enlightenment in their lifetime!
People in West failed to understand God Almighty could not be reached via path of religion...
path of rituals! For reaching God Almighty in present life... travelling uncharted path of spirituality was
mandated! Path of spirituality is best travelled following teachings contained in Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... the
doctrine given to mankind by Lord Krishna... an avatar of his era!
If we truly desire reaching God in present life... our travelling spiritual path was an
absolute must! Simply by going to temples, churches or mosques... we attained nothing! Enlightenment can only be
gained by eradicating karma in totality. For eradication of karma in totality absolute control over five senses and
mind was necessitated.
Apart from absolute control over five senses and mind... indulgence in absolute celibacy was
mandated! Celibacy truly needs to be practiced for a minimum period of 12 years in continuation for full awakening
of Kundalini Shakti... the coiled Serpentine energy lying dormant in base of spine! Sexual abstinence counted for
hardly 10% of total aspect of celibacy!
90% celibacy is practiced mentally. Eradicating flow of negative thoughts to our brain in totality is what celibacy
is all about. The moment not a single thought entered our brain uninvoked... one reached stage of Nirvikalpa
Samadhi ... stage of absolute nothingness! One immediately became an enlightened one... a bodhi... a Mahavira... a
Full awakening of Kundalini Shakti finally opens Sahasra Pushpa (thousand petaled Lotus) that
exists in our brain behind the forehead! Opening of Sahasra Pushpa announced one becoming a kaivalya jnani... an
enlightened one... a Brahma jnani! The entire wisdom contained in cosmos was now at our tips... one truly became
omniscient for all practical purposes!
