Gandhiji on God –video

Gandhiji's way

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pSWzFz-tGrM

Gandhiji — you are the father of our nation.

When I think of you —-
I see your chappal
I see your dhoti
I see your chakra
I see your stick
I see the color and the texture of your batta
I see you walking, walking with long strides with these symbols to make a difference.

I really do think your way is the only way to make a difference in India.

Why is the cow sacred?

Forward it to 3:27 and listen to what the Hinduism says about why we worship the cow.

Personal thoughts —

I believe Hindus don’t eat the Cow because we attribute it to the mother.

Think about it… when the mother can’t give milk to the baby — it has to come from the cow. It is also a baby’s, our (Mankind’s) first staple of food.

Cow products are used for nourishment — example, Ghee, butter, butter milk, curd. And cheese.

People in India, even use cow dung to build their homes.

That is why we Hindus don’t eat the cow and believe it should not be killed.

I personally don’t have anything against a person who eats the cow, it does not change the fact they are with you on this planet earth to experience the same fate that each of us has in store for us.

I believe your consciousness and eyes works very differently when you do not eat the cow.

The cow is sacred to Hindus. The Nandi’s are the cows that symbolize and is the vehicle of Shiva.

I also have read somewhere online that cow and calf may have been considered scared animals in the bible also, for people who have an altar at their homes.

Hinduism is not just a faith. It is the union of reason and intuition that can not be defined but is only to be experienced. Evil and error are not ultimate. There is no Hell, for that means there is a place where God is not, and there are sins which exceed his love.
