Spiritualism In India

Each nation must give in order to live. When you give life, you will have life; when you receive, you must pay for it by giving to all others; and that we have been living for so many thousands of years is a fact that stares us in the face, and the solution that remains is that we have been always giving to the outside world, whatever the ignorant may think. - Swami Vivekananda

Being an Oriental, India's greatest gift is the gift of spiritualism and its not a category but imbibed in every grain of this land. The land from time immemorial is been recognized as a land of religion and philosophy. The land where wisdom put the first step before it ventured in another regions and India takes pride of being a nation where wisdom and philosophy do not march upon bleeding human bodies, never conquered anyone and stride not with violence but wings of peace and love.

Indian spiritualism do not contradict any other form of metaphysics because it says about the faith in oneself. The various ancient schools of philosophy says the same thing garbed in different lines. The study of oneness and realization of spirit within is the main motto of ancient seers and truth seekers. A constant struggle to realize the reality and renunciation from the worldly pleasures bestowed many saints and seers to got the realization behind the secret of this incredible calculation of the universe. The best part of Indian spiritual tradition is, not to contradict any other method of knowing the truth but to assimilate all knowledge and realize the ultimate. Unlike Occidental method of understanding the reality, spiritualism in India do not much bother about reasons and logic but with a constant meditation on Self and thinking about one goal bestows them with a knowledge that present an omniscience vision.

The foundation of India spiritualism and scientific heritage is found in the ancient seminal Sanskrit classics like the Early Upanishads, the Bhagavad Gita and the Yoga Sutras. These sacred books are considered as an evergreen classics and contain wealth of wisdom and knowledge, both pure and applied that applies even in the modern circumstances. The sections are divided into two parts - Para Vidya(science of the imperishable soul, self, or spirit, i.e.,spirituality) and Apara Vidya (science of the perishable, transient and material, i.e., science). The science and spiritualism is finely impregnated and stresses on human health, growth and evolution. Both the branch do not contradict but fulfill each other. The study of spiritualism in India may not be direct but indirectly influence society through derivations of different text.

Religion Is The Beautiful Name Of Spiritualism

The spirit or self, according to Hinduism is a part of universal self. According to monist school, this is not dual but one self that shows different pictures in the universe, and within the power of Maya we see different pictures. Like if we understand one grain of clay, we can explain the nature of lump of clay, in the same way if we understand our self, then we can understand the universal self. This universal self or soul is called God. To understand and to made people understand, organized religions are formed. India boasts the origin of religion and all the major religions in the world are directly or indirectly came from a principle one theory of understanding the self. The environment of Indian supported and secured all religions in the world. India boasts the presence of multifarious religions such Judaism, Islam, The Bahá'í Faith, Christianity, Jainism, Zoroastrianism, Hinduism, Buddhism and Sikhism and many other.

Since in India religion is the backbone and preservative of social customs, architecture, diet, thought and way of life, therefore, one can find an unparalleled variety of customs, and social rituals in every part of the country.
