Shri Nagesh Mahadevan Ji,
Not sure, but hope your intent is not proselytizing or converting.
Just mentioning: personally am not convinced about the gospel.
Do I have to advise you as I did sapthajihva? Does quoting from scriptures which you think is not yours, be construed as proselytizing? Why do you always jump to conclusions? This is an inherent issue with members of the community.
Was seeking a clarification. Am not sure why you felt i was jumping to a conclusion (??). Perhaps it is possible that you too might be jumping to a conclusion in thinking this way...
What is 'Gospel'? It is a Greek word which means 'Good News'. Any good news is gospel. If Bagwadgita is good news to you, it is gospel to you.
I cannot explain more nor can I be more clear.
And please do not drag on this point in this thread any longer. Br PV Raman has started this thread with a noble motive. Let there be no digression.
If anyone desires to debate with me on the confusion called conversion, you may please do say in an entirely different forum but not in any of the threads in this forum. I wish to stick to the objectives of this forum.
sounds familiar. but anyways, i agree, thanks.
If believing in the ultimate truth is a narrow minded approach, so be it. It is a result of our karmas that we are born in such cultures - I strongly believe in that. Being born in a culture which upholds the vedas, is in itself, in my opinion, a starting light which guides the self on the path to enlightenment. So it is not a question of catching on one's root alone, rather the maturity to choose the right path.That's your subjective, narrow minded opinion. Please introspect. Answer your own conscience (not me), had you been born and raised in an orthodox christian or muslim family, would you still proclaim this?
Can you please elaborate what you meant by the above statement? Making a superficial statement out of your perception about my character is not the perfect logic to support an argument.Please do not jump to conclusions, as is characteristic and typical of orthodox brahmins. Apostles never created isms. Men like you made isms out of what the Apostles preached. Come out of your shell gentleman.
A confused statement altogether deviating from my statement.Why did you subscribe to it? Is it because the external forces are white skinned after all?
This thread is about Hinduism and its edicts; in my opinion there is no necessity to bring in any other scriptural references.
Frankly this comment has no relevance to this topic; you are only dragging it on... anyway I think you have not understood the import of my previous post. Am just highlighting the relevant part:Dear Sapthajihva,
For you SD is greatest because, YOU were born in SD. If you had been born in a Christian or Muslim family, either one of them would have been the greatest respectively. According to you, YOUR birth in SD makes SD great. YOU seem to be adding value to SD and not vice versa.

.How to bridge the huge gap between A brahmana by varna and brahmin by caste?. ....
.........If I put this entire post in a single line, When we don't live as per a Brahmana's life described in Scripts, what are the common qualities a Brahmin should have and how many of us really qualifies against that definition?. Is it enough to have Brahmin parents? [all groups and religions are having this qualifications issue, in this modern world!!). A clear idea will help us to be (not only us but other Hindu castes) united.
actually,i am only namesake brahmin,as a caste.but i don't follow any rituals.even pithru karyam,i have proxied to madhya kailash,in adyar...
actually,i am only namesake brahmin,as a caste.but i don't follow any rituals.even pithru karyam,i have proxied to madhya kailash,in adyar.i simply feel people are divine or satvik or demons or asuric.this nature exists in all of us.there is simply no meaning in brahmins these days.frankly i feel very idiotic to call myself brahmin,but just holding to this tag.i feel all castes are man made and not by god.god will never differentiate.anyways don't know,just writing my views.i read posts,seldom post here,but this thread could not control myself.please excuse my honesty.
