“Let come what comes, let go what goes. See what remains.” – Sri Ramana Maharshi
“Whatever comes, let it come, what stays let stay, what goes let go.” ― Papaji
“A particle of Its bliss supplies the bliss of the whole universe. Everything becomes enlightened in Its light. All else appears worthless after a sight of that essence.
I am indeed of this Supreme Eternal Self.” – Vijnanananka
Hinduism is an ancient world religion that is frequently revered as “a total way of life.” It’s a philosophy of living deeply rooted in traditional beliefs of the early spiritual teachers, sages and mystics of India. Hindu oral tradition dates back well before recorded history (10,000-7,000 BC). Hinduism continues today as a dynamic and vibrant living tradition. It’s the world’s third largest religion with approximately 950 million believers (14% of the planet’s population). It’s the primary religion in India, Nepal and Sri Lanka. Theologians suggest Hindus may be the most intensely religious people on Earth.
Hindus believe their spirituality was inspired by divine revelations to ancient sages and mystics living in the thick forests and along the fertile rivers of India… thousands of years before Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Buddha.
Sometimes called the cradle of spirituality” and/or “the mother of all religions,” we know Hinduism seems to be the only religion not founded on a single historic event or prophet and precedes recorded history. It has influenced every major world religion known today. Of particular note, the Hindu notion of “the divine” is understood as a feminine power… think Goddesses. Also, what we know as contemporary yoga has its primal roots in Hinduism.
So for today… a bit of Hindu wisdom for your prayerful consideration. Namaste!
