Are you a Hindu?

Do you see a resemblance based on your foundation, upbringing and experience?

How does one see this, as a Hindu, non hindu and how you may or may not even know a Hindu? A priceless ques. for you.

How do you measure each of these? *

Do you still consider yourself a Hindu after reading this post?

What do you think the difference is? where this is coming from? That is also something to learn from about a person and ourselves.

Thank you for taking the time to read it!

About Iksvakave

I am on a quest to understand my religion --- Hinduism. I have decided to keep a log of my discoveries, and experiences and what I have come to learn in the process. I like to travel through people vicariously. To observe the working of the mind, body and spirit. And heart. The soul infact is what our bodies have and what we are ultimately or in the end! The pricelessness of the soul is a soul is only potentially divine. Our journey here is therefore to understand that divinity in our lives. The ideals of societies, language, culture religion, and spirituality, is what interests me. what we know and don't know and outside of our four walls, maybe the priceless truth of that journey here on earth also, our yoga to be learned and equally perfected in life. What this blog is about is the values of the mother tongue India. And the values and culture of India and my nationality America. Pricelessness of it one will come to know you see. The forehead, is the center of the Hindu conscious.
