There seems to be no topic about this religion, seems like Hindus are the least talked about in this world.
I have nothing against the religion, except the fact that it is highly based on idol worship,
I hate the fact that temples get crowded to such an extent that you have to gasp for fresh air in one of those special days in the year!
And i really dont understand why westerners tend to be attracted towards Hinduism, since everything about the religion is based on STORIES.

They believe that there are GODS residing inside every part of cow, and in the stories, lord Krishna loves cows and says that they are the most beautiful creatures ever created.
There are also few scriptures that ban us from eating them, no reasons mentioned.

It's an unnecessary hype made by Indians that "cow" is the most beautiful and lovely and bah bah bah bah!! and that's why we love that creature and worship it.......utter bullshit. In my honest opinion, Cow is sacred in India because her milk is fucking tasty and people are motherfucking addicted to it . Indians can kick their family member out of their house BUT they won't ever kick COW out of their houses because every morning people out here love to forcefully squeeze her parts and take out the fucking milk...that's why they most care about COW. Well, they are many other benefits attached to it but I just think of this one and i suppose this hold the MOST the very true part.

Haha, that made me laugh.

@ Marcel, I'm not quite sure about the reason for cows being sacred, but if I'm not mistaken it is due to the fact that a hindu god uses a cow as a mode of transport. Also as the wizzard said, hindus have a polytheistic view, meaning many gods. They believe that god is part of everyone and everyone is part of god, or something along those lines. So basically everything is sacred.

Hindu's believe that cows are sacred because they are "motherly animals". Mothers produce milk for their babies and cows produce milk for humanity. You don't eat your mothers because they are motherly so you shouldn't eat cows for the same reason. Krishna was a cow herder also, so if God was protecting the cows in that sense then so should we. This sums up a great deal as far as cows go, I'm sure there is more to it since Hinduism is MASSIVE folks. There are several different forms of Hinduism and there are also 3,000 names for God, each representing different aspects of the supreme God. There is a lot to this stuff, very fascinating and beautiful in my opinion. AUM

^ I believe that reason is the correct one (or so I was taught)... But multiple animals produce milk and there are other animals that provide humans with milk, like goats. By that logic, shouldn't those animals also have some sacred value?

As for dietary restrictions, most of the Hindus I've met abstained from cow meat but still ate other meat. In fact, I think I've met one who also ate cow. I've only met one who was actually a vegetarian, but I don't know many Hindus.

On a related note, I have a copy of the Bhagavad Gita hanging around in my room... I've been meaning to read it just out of curiosity and perhaps to gain some enlightenment, but probably won't actually get to it for a while.

I was amazed at how spot on Krishna was about sociopaths, when he was explaining to Arjuna the three personality types. Rajas I believe he called them.

you might like it.. some of the verses may inspire you. I used to use it as a guideline to live my life but not anymore. But Bhagavad Gita, Ramayana and Mahabharatha are really fun stories to read though

I find it better to watch epics on TV than reading that loaded stuff for couple of weeks. Only problem is that the language used is very difficult to comprehend as Sanskrit drops in every word or line. So, i see with couple of friends who're use to see all these. But, they're very fascinating.

Then I guess you haven't checked out Kartikeya yet. Post-ethnic extreme metal band from Russian/Serbian/Canadian province which is heavily influenced by Indian culture, mythology and classical/folk music.
