Adoption of multi-faith primary religious moral education of different world religions in most educational curricular help children to learn other major religions and develop valuable moral values derived by this different religions in general.
Hinduism is the religion originated in India and its roots traced back for over 3 500 years ago. Due to migration of the pale -skinned Aryan race who relocated in Indus valley an area which covers parts of India and Pakistan.Hindu a name derived from Indus valley, is mingled of Aryan Indian culture and has a single founder with no specific doctrine or belief held supreme.Hinduism means a host of religions and sects (samapradayas)which appeared and flourished for thousands years ago under the complex of ancient Hindu mythology. Prominent India writer Parthasarathy explains,The Hindus are not polytheistic .Hinduism speaks of one God 'Brahman', but the different gods and goddesses of the Hindu pantheon are really representatives of the powers and functions of the one supreme God in the manifested world. No specific scriptures is regarded as authorative and no moral code emphasis is more on the way of living than on the way of thoughts.
Although Hinduism has holy writings the oldest Vedas a collection of prayers and hymns known as the Rig-veda,the sama-veda ,the Yajur-veda and the Atharva-veda. These are some of the oldest written scared scriptures like the books of Torah written by the prophet Moses. The Vedas were supplemented later by Brahmanas and the Upanishads scared writings.
Brahmanas specialised with ritual and secrifices on domestic and public scenes and also go deeper on how are they performed both in meaning and purpose.
Whilst the Upanishads deals with the the set reason for thought and action in the Hindu's religious faith and are also known as the vendanta.Transmigration of soul(Samsara) and the belief in the deeds of the former existence are the cause of one's present state in life (Karma) were part of the scared writings.
The other set of writings found in the Hindu library include the Puranas which are books of stories ,myths of gods and goddesses and Heroes of Hindu. In this extensive Hindu library a collection of epics of the Ramayana and Mahabharata are also found.
The hero Rama or Ramachandra a story in Hindu viewed as a model son ,brother and husband. His name invoked greeting was the seventh avatar(incarnation of the Vishnu.
Mahabharata is the supreme instruction of morality and the last instruction of Gítã is the final word of motality and religion : Surrender unto Krishna.
The Celestal song of Hindu spiritual wisdom is a conflict of conversation between Krishana and supreme personality of Godhead and Arjuna known as 'Bhagavad Gita instructs the science of self-realization. Bhagavita Gita is the extensive holy library of the Hindu ,whilst the Vedas ,Brahmanas and the Upanishads are Scruti or 'heard which considered only as scared writ.
Other writings composed by human authors from revelation such as the epics and the Puranas are Smriti or 'remembered' contains sets of Hindu religious,outline the caste system and social law.
Hindus' faith 'sanatana dharma' which means eternal law or order.They believe in 'Samsara and Reincarnation which means there is death and re-birth. The fortunes of the soul in each re-birth are determined by its behaviour in the former lives. The principle of 'Karma' literally means every action has its positive or negative consequences for the next life of the transmigrated soul. Deeds or actions may be sins which ever goes unpunished and no venture remains unrewarded. What it means is that ,if somebody didn't reserve punishment or reward in life shall be re-birth at a higher or lower level. Dharma is the law which determines the rightness or wrongness of the acts. Re-birth which is judged by dharma is not necessarily in the form of human form. A man should be loyal to his class and shouldn't covert other people's classes.
