LOVE YOUR THREAD!!!!!! Sorry i almost never use all CAPS for anything, but I am a HUGE buff of Indian, Asian and Sumerian history. I have literally
spent 12 years of my life, in the library, taking relevent college courses, and speaking with my older sister who became a Yogi master and teaches new
Yoga teachers and helps everyone, no matter what their belief, find their true selves and beciome truly happy (its uncanny).
Then I connected the dots. Krishna, the God of love and life, and Shiva, the God of death, are two parts of the one God Bishaomon in Japanese lore
(not literally, but the two represent the same thing as the one).
Anyway I know this is a little off topic, but given your knowledge I had to let you know and simply want to know what you think of it? Is it BS, or
does Indian culture actually acknowledge the soul of individuals being of different levels? Do they believe some have tasks assigned to them, or
specific roles? (souls)
No ... What you have described is not a BS.Everything around us & everyone of us are inter-connected & has a reason for our existence.There is an
in-depth meaning to our live's.
Let me try to give you an insight to those things that you have described ...
Lord Krishna & Lord Shiva, both of them are god of love/compassion & also god of destruction (meaning destruction of Evil).There are so many
historical events that took place in ancient india where both God shiva & God Krishna has to Destroy evil & uplift the one's those who showed
unconditional love towards god.
Below is the video of shiva mantra being chanted in a way so as to describe that god shiva has a peaceful side too.
Hinduism teaches its followers to lead a honest,truthful life without any aspirations for material goals.Wealth according to Hinduism, is NOT
money.Wealth according to Hindus is to attain Enlightenment & to liberate ourself from this constant cycle of "Birth & Rebirth" so as to become a
free spirit & to be able to merge with the supreme soul of the god head.Hindus aspire to not be born again in this miserable materialistic temporary
world.which is full of MAYA(illusion).Maya are these temporary pleasures that blinds our eyes from seeing/seeking the permanent truth of light.
Hinduism teaches the "Physical Body is NOT who we are".It is the SOUL/SPIRIT within us which is our true Identity.We have taken millions of births &
re-births to have become what we are now (Humans).It is not that easy to be born as a Human being with the Sixth sense to be able to think differently
from other animal beings.Our soul has been passed over through so many physical bodies since the aspect of Life came into existence in this world.
Hindu's believe we can reach god only through enlightenment Hindu's also believe, We(our soul) elevate through different level of higher
planes/planets in our vast unexplored universe.The planet where we will exist depends upon the level of enlightenment one has achieved.We(Our refined
Soul) finally enters god(merge with the supreme soul).
We are REINCARNATED in this world time & time again so that we could work out our KARMA.The karma from our past life determines how we are born in our
next incarnation.There are both GOOD karma & BAD karma.We have to do good things so as to equalize the bad karma that we have generated since when our
soul has been put into existence.Until we become perfect & refined, our soul does not elevate to higher level of consciousness & so why we are put
into this earth again & again until we do good deeds & reach that level of perfection.
So, Mike - You are here on earth for a reason/cause.The meaning of life is hidden deep within you.You have to search/look for it & you have to do what
you have to do.Work out your karma & you will be automatically elevated to the next level of consciousness on your goal to finally reach & merge with
the supreme soul/personality of the godhead.
