The Hinduism, the main religion of the Indian subcontinent is an all embracing one. The holy trinity of the Christianity is akin to the holy trio of "Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh".

The Islamic theological concept of "the existence of only one god" and "the worshipping of only one god" was already an inherent and integral part of the conceptof the non-dualism that has existed in the Indian subcontinent since times immemorial and much well before the coming of the Islam in this world.

Some like to call the Hinduism "the Sanaatana Dhrma" in view of the former term being a corrupt form of the much later evolved concept woven around the religion of the people living to the east of "the river Sindhu" whose correct pronunciation the Greeks found quite difficult and therefore who pronounced it conveniently as "the river Indus".

Now, it is easy to see as to why the people living to the east of the river Indus,  that is in the Indian subcontinent came to be called "the Hindus". I would like to term it "the religion of the Indian subcontinent".

Today, in this age of terrorism of all the shades and political fanaticism, the world needs urgently to practice the virtues of the "full respect to all the religions, the peace, the global citizenship and the full respect to the females."

The Hinduism mainly teaches inter alia the virtues of the full respect to all the religions, the peace, the global citizenship and the full respect to the females as is clear from the following quotes/phrases from the Sanskrta language:

  • Sarva Dharma Sambhaava (the literal meaning: same attitude towards all the religions). This means the religious tolerance.
  • Ahinsaa Permo dhrma (the literal meaning: the non-violence is greatest of all the religions). This means that we must renounce the violence and instead follow the path of the peace.
  • Vasudhaeva kutumbkama (the literal meaning: the whole of the earth/globe is a family). This means that all the people living on all parts of the globe are a big loving family.
  • Yatra Naarayastu Pujyantae Ramantae Tatra Daevataa. Yatraenaastu Na Pujayantae Srvaastatraaphalaaha Kreyaaha (the literal meaning: the gods reside at the place where the female is worshipped and all activities are unsuccessful where no respect for females exist). 
  • This means that the females in the world enjoy more than equal rights as compared to the males and as such the females have to be given the full freedom, the rights and the respect.
