Hinduism is the Only Dharma

Hinduism is the Only Dharma in this multiverse comprising of Science & Quantum Physics.

Josh Schrei helped me understand G-O-D (Generator-Operator-Destroyer) concept of the divine that is so pervasive in the Vedic tradition/experience. Quantum Theology by Diarmuid O'Murchu and Josh Schrei article compliments the spiritual implications of the new physics. Thanks so much Josh Schrei.

Long Live Sanatan Dharam-- Why in every Siva temple, the head of Nandi, the bull is towards the temple?

In every Siva temple, the head of Nandi, the bull is towards the temple. Why? 

Ours is a predominantly agricultural country, the bull had and does play an important part in the lives of our farmers. It toils the whole day in the hot sun, in weather conditions as diverse as Assam, Punjab and Tamil Nadu. Yet, what does it get in return except some water and dry grass. It does not go on strike demanding minimum wages or ask for stock options. It goes on serving its owner without expecting the fruits of action. 

It has no desires, does not want to wear a ten yard Kanjeevaram saree or Color Plus shirt. In a way, it symbolizes Hindu philosophy. Men of any religion can achieve self - realization by giving up desires, doing self-less action without worrying about the fruits of action. 

It is for these reasons that the Bull is worshipped by Hindus all over the country. The head of a bull is turned towards God in a temple, indicating that the bull’s actions are dedicated to God, in the absence of ego and desires. By worshipping a bull, the Hindu invokes the spirit of dedication to higher values and service to fellow human-beings. 

Long Live Sanatan Dharam
