Hola Rascals,
I've been doing some soul searching as of late and decided I should investigate adding some religion to my life.  I did a little research on Hinduism.  I thought it was very enlightening.  It certainly gave me a lot to think about in regards to my place here and the cycle of existence we all seem to be going through.  My thoughts seem a little clearer now, for whatever reason.  Here's where I went to start:

Yes, that is a Hinduism for dummies website.  Whatever.  I really like the free flowing nature of Hinduism and how well it fits with my observation of the universe.  It seems peaceful.  It gets my mind going on a lot of interesting tangents in the search for the one true knowledge.  My problem is also the free flowing nature of Hinduism.  I like how one needs to put in the work to acquire more knowledge.  It's not easily packed into one book like the bible; you have to look around.  However the internet, or at least the sites I've found are not helping me much in my search for more information on how one would get started in this religion.  Thus my dilemma and where you enter.  If you know a good way to get started getting involved in Hinduism, please post a comment below.  Help a brother out!  If you're looking for religion or find this topic interesting, please click the link above and investigate a little more.  I'm certainly going to keep looking!



  1. If I had a religion, it would be buddhism. I don't need a religion, that tells me I'd go to hell or something.

  2. I believe a lot of what Hinduism is is meditation, as you said, you look around and see and reflect, which is a basic form of meditation. The only other religions that I know of that also acknowledge meditation as a part of their practice is Buddhism and Islam. I know in Islam in particular it is considered to be almost a major part of the religion to look around and see the world, and be thankful and meditate in a way for what is around you and why. This is also what is done in Hinduism and Buddhism (to my knowledge) but their meditation involves actual sitting down and clearing your brain, etc etc. I myself have done quite a bit of meditation, especially when it comes to writing poetry. I find that to be my own form of meditation, it really helps me calm down and express myself.
