      Hinduism is not a religion it is a way of life. Vedanta says that there’s an inner intelligence in your body, and that inner intelligence is consciousness, it’s the ultimate… it’s the ultimate in supreme genius, which mirrors the wisdom of the universe.

      • … That inner consciousness/divine is present in every individual and it is that divine that Hindu’s adore/salute when we say “Namaste” or “Namaskar” to another being. So we do adore other human beings when we say Namaste. Wasn’t that in your reading of Hinduism/Vedanta?

        Many beings are enlightened and aware of their divinity, we call them Shri Ram, Buddha, Jesus, Sai Baba, Amma and so on. Come and meet Amma and we can discuss the finer points of Hinduism. You can also buy my Prayer Book Prarthana, available on Amazon.

        < Hinduism is not a religion it is a way of life. > Certainly, as much as Christianity, Islam or Judaism are not religions but ways of life.
        Namaste.

        • I agree but when someone like Sai baba is clearly exposed for misdeeds and corruption, Why would I say they are more enlightened than me?
          Isn’t the divinity in us all? Sure there are people I see more divinity in than myself.
          I revere them. I apologize if I offended you or your beliefs.

          Consciousness is the macrWhat kind of action is a simple observation? It is nothing but the act of consciousness , a field of scalar energy. With focused INTENTION it can achieve the extraordinary. It explains the power of prayer. . The brain is governed by the laws of quantum physics rather than the laws of biology or neurophysiology.

          • We need to make a distinction between holy people and the fallible humans who surround and manage their lives. Taking money is usually the least of people’s crimes. Look at all the child abuse perpetrated by Catholic priests; And the inquisition (and crusades) used to torment humanity. BTW, that has happened in India in Goa. Human ARE the trouble. it is people like AMMA who guide us to lead exemplary lives. And yes, we will be making mistakes. So one of our most common prayers is for our Guru to guide across this (turbulent) river of life.

            You are absolutely right, divinity exists in us all. It is up to you to live the divine potential in yourself. If you feel confident in your ways, you obviously do not need anyone to ‘guide’ or ‘model’ the path forward. Many a weekends I spend in seclusion, reading and understanding in awe the nature of the divinity surrounding us all.

            Thank you for reading. BTW, AMMA is on a North America tour and you should try and see her possibly in New York or somewhere near to where you are. Or you can even come to Boston. And really, HUGS are FREE!

            Namah Shivay,
            Arun
