Diversity and Unity in Hinduism
Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami , 2009-07-16
Saiva Siddhanta's dual doctrine of faith. Hinduism Today is the primary form of public service for our Mathavasis and a voice and network for Hindus of all sects. Promoting the Vedas as the number one scripture of Hinduism. Application and teaching in modern life to be self-evident that Hinduism can make one happier and more successful.
I've been doing some research to see what Gurudeva said about Hinduism Today in the Saiva Dharma Shastras to put into a keynote presentation for Houston, Texas in the end of August; that's when it's for. That's a presentation it's called: Diversity and Unity in Hinduism. And it starts out with an introduction about Hinduism Today because many of the people attending aren't that familiar with us. So I was drawing some information on Hinduism Today from Saiva Dharma Shastras.
So, I'm sure most of you remember, we have a dual doctrine of faith.
Enlightened monistic Saiva Siddhanta philosophy of the Nandinatha Sampradaya Kailasa Parampara is one of the doctrines and the Hindu solidarity, unity in diversity, among all the dominations of Sanatana Dharma. And Gurudeva says: "These two streams of consciousness are represented by the two points of our flag." How many of you would have passed that test? What object represents these two points of doctrine? Our flag.
So Gurudeva explains the two doctrines.
