|Dear Mukhtar Bhai,
According to you,the belief in one god/person and his saying is
understood complete while a tradition developed by constant debates
are understood inferior and closed. But i think, it is paradoxical.
How could a vision of one person be considered as full, complete and
rational? When there is no debate, no discussion and a complete denial
of other views, how could it be considered as giving a wholesome
picture??? It might also be possible that the person got deluded or
was living in hallucination. The creed and belief of complete
explanation by one person as superior to the work of debates of many
is again hypocritical. And, here lies the difference between the
monotheistic and panentheistic monotheism. In the "superior"
monotheism, there is only one person who became god because of his
virtues. But it is a very closed vision of extensions of other human
beings. According to Islamic tradition, only Prophet had that capacity
while others do not. The Jannat could be achieved but not godhood.
While in Hinduism, the godhood is granted to all. Every being is a
possible god and this possibility could be attained and decided by
your Karma. I guess, you are not unaware of dojhakh which is also
dependent upon deeds.
However, let me clear more about Sanatan Dharma. It is just not a
theology or saying of a messenger of god. It is a corpus of multitude
of other knowledge forms. It is about theology, philosophy, logic,
medicine, environment, ethics, practices-physical as well as
metaphysical, spirituality and many more. It is not something that if
you convert this much number of people to your faith then you will be
granted Jannat. It is about the development of human possibilities
which is now considered as true in Scientific world in form of Quantum
Physics. It is about leading a way of life as well as living. Sanatan
Dharma is based upon two complimentary tools: rationality and
practice. Both reason and practice are necessary for spiritual
advancement. Without rationality, practice may lead to fanaticism
while without practice the spiritual knowledge will be dry and
The Sanatan Dharma is based upon the principle that every form of life
is a form of that eternal source of life. It may be given any name or
form i.e. phenomenological it may be as varied as the world itself but
ontologically it is only one. This is called monotheism and not the
worship of one person of his saying. We all know, that human
development lies in its inquisitiveness and not in blindness or
bondedness to any single creed. The metaphorical forms attained by
idols is the sacred imagery that helps the person to concentrate on
his or her personal god, meditate on it. It is just the beginning but
the problem with people of lesser tendency thinks that it is the final
My dear friend! there is nothing final. The Human life is an
exploration of its own self. That is why we do not stick to any
result, we say that something is more is beyond this - "Nayti-Nayti".
And why do you want to change the entire world in one common form.
Dear this way, we will loose the ecstasy of this world which is only
because of its multiple forms. Don't you like variety of colours,
people, animals around you? and when everything has become uniform
then how are you going to assert that you are superior.
