There are so many controversies happening on Hindu religion today? So much misconception is being spread and so much danger is being said for Hindu religion that I was forced to choose this topic?

What is Hindu religion?

I am not giving any definition but am writing those practical things which make us Hindu and connect us with it.

Since childhood, I have known my religion, breathed in it and felt it with joy.

I did not feel any guilt or shame in being a Hindu.

Hindu religion is considered to be the religion of Varnashram, four ashrams have been mentioned in it. After starting Brahmacharya Ashram, it is said that 25 years of study has to be done in the beginning of life for employment and education. Then how child marriage got recognized is also worth considering.

Perhaps it was only after the Vedic era that it was accepted that without marriage a man often gets deviated from his morals, then instead of being a celibate, he was given the facility of child marriage and the believers also remained engaged in studies.

Similarly, the Hindus changed the Vanaprastha Ashram as per their behavior and instead of living in a hut in the forest, they started living in the family with their children.

Is this what happened to Gurukul? Gurukuls were closed in modernity. The British government closed Gurukuls and Lord Macaulay developed a new education system which was called the trick of making Babu. But new scientific education becomes necessary with time and without it no country, caste or group can move forward a step.

Then why did the Hindus abandon their Gurukul and why could they not revive the Gurukul.

Of course, we cannot get so much time for new education, but if Hindus wish, they can start their Gurukul system afresh on the lines of Madrasa.

Gurukul education can be opened and run in the hills and forest areas, it will have to be made available to all without discrimination.

How and why Hindu religion associated many rituals with the Brahmin caste and limited them to them is also a question worthy of consideration, but due to this, the real teaching of Hindu religion was defeated.

Yajnayopavit was considered a rite of Brahmin. Due to this it became a sham. Today the boys of Brahmin caste are insulting the sacred thread themselves and there is no morality left in them which was expected.

Hindu scriptures are no longer collected and read except Ramayana and Bhagwat, whereas thousands of ancient texts are lying in many families but they are not being perused.

Today’s generation is not even looking at the Vedas, Upanishads and Puranas, whereas there is so much in it that they can be read, read and discussed in a separate ashram.

The biggest thing is that today’s Hindu is measuring his progress with money and is cherishing the pride of being a Hindu by following the worship method.

It is a matter of pride to be a Hindu because they follow a very hygienic lifestyle, the rituals and way of life is scientific.

Like Hindus insist on remaining pure and holy but when the circumstances are not favourable, then such obsession should not be followed.

There has always been a lot of criticism of untouchability among Hindus and in the new era, there were social reformers who started movements against untouchability and laws were also made.

Still, at the core of untouchability was the feeling that no one eating meat and living in filth should touch those who considered themselves pure. Considering themselves sacred, the upper castes expanded the scope of untouchability and it became such a big evil due to which Hindu religion got fragmented into many parts. People kept dividing and separating into various sects, but the Brahmin and priestly class continued to believe in untouchability.

The untouchability which may have started because of the feeling that if someone has not taken bath and has eaten various kinds of meat, then he can be kept away from himself, this feeling ultimately came to the fore in the division and division of castes, which had very bad consequences.

Apart from the upper castes, Rajputs, Vaishyas and Shudras among the Hindus, it is recorded in history and literature how many castes divided themselves and created divisions.

The structure of castes was such that whatever work a person did was called his caste and everyone was bound to do the work of his caste and no one could do the work of any other caste. Later, it improved with the abolition of caste system due to which people started doing work other than their caste. When the same people left the work of their caste, they suffered such a loss that they lost their caste work.

The Chamar caste used to take dead animals from their homes and skin them, but now they have given up that ancestral and caste work. Due to this, people in the villages started facing a lot of problems because after the death of the animals, now everyone has to leave the dead animals, cows and buffaloes in the forest with their own resources. There are many such tasks which the caste people have left, they feel ashamed and Now they are being deprived of their caste’s work and employment.

These are many changes which are taking place in the new era and are necessary because now no one is bound to work only for his caste.

Same is the condition of many customs and traditions like child marriage had increased. Perhaps due to foreign invasion, a feeling of insecurity developed among Hindus and people started doing child marriages and later Gauna-Pathoni started taking place.

Due to child marriage, girls could not get education. If girls remained uneducated, their social and economic status started deteriorating. Just as Shudras were considered inferior, women too started being considered second class.

Women started being trapped in many types of evils due to which their freedom was also crushed. It has become a rule that a girl should always remain under the protection of a man. Even today, if a girl or woman does not remain under the protection of a man, then her morality is tested.

The reason for the plight of women was that women were deprived of education. When efforts were made for the improvement of women, great men laid emphasis on women’s education.

Everyone from Swami Dayanand Saraswati to Maulana Azad worked for the education of girls. Jyoti Ba Phule and Savitri Bai dedicated their lives to women’s education. Laws were made in the country to increase the marriage age of girls and Balasaheb Ambedkar made special provisions for education. Along with the freedom movement, continuous efforts for women’s education were made by Gandhi, Nehru, Sir Syed Ahmed, Dr. Radhakrishnan.

Many freedom fighters like Swami Dayanand Saraswati attacked the evil practices in the Hindu society in the country and opposed the atrocities on women. Dayanand Saraswati had requested the British government to stop the practice of Sati and by establishing Arya Samaj, opened the door to inter-caste marriages.

It is a matter of regret that today many staunch Hindutva advocates want to bring back the same evils due to which the Hindu society will again get trapped in the clutches of illiteracy and child marriage. Many fundamentalist Hindu organizations are making false arguments to bring back casteism, which will harm women’s freedom.

Even today, the practice of keeping girls away from the kitchen and place of worship when they menstruate is partially followed. But today, due to the influence of modernity, Hindus are giving up their bad practices.

Special care is taken of cleanliness among Hindus. Bathing and cleaning houses are daily rituals. Even today, every Hindu performs many types of rituals like cleaning the house in the morning, mopping the floor, cleanliness of the kitchen and eating only after taking bath and worshiping.

Today the trend of narrating stories, Bhagwat and Ramayana from story tellers has increased. Today, in the name of cow service, a Hindu fulfills his duty by feeding him just one roti, believing that he lacks resources and time.

Now the trend of non-vegetarian food has increased. The fondness for Chinese and McDonald’s food has brought about a radical change in the Indian food habits. The new generation is eating Chinese and foreign dishes like pizza, burgers and noodles. Momos and many other types of fast food have penetrated into small towns.

Today Maggi has replaced the earlier Puri-Bhaji. Modern public schools are running in place of the ancient education system. Now most of the youth have started living there after achieving the goal of getting a job abroad. They come to the country to perform some rituals, after getting the last rites of their parents performed on the banks of Ganga, they feel proud of being a Hindu and return back to Europe and America satisfied.

Farming is considered a symbol of backwardness. Today, even children from farming families are moving to big cities after getting higher education.

Earlier there used to be Gurukul for education where only Brahmin and Rajput children used to get education which was a limited part of the society. Girls did not go to Gurukul, Vaishya and Shudra were also deprived of this education due to which Hindu society became victim of great inequality and evils. Later, in modern education, the doors of education were opened for all classes and women. The Gurukul system was discontinued considering it archaic and impractical.

Whereas even today, if the dedicated scholar class of social reformers can revive the Gurukul system and educate everyone in it and become the center of Indian education and learning, then in Gurukul we can learn the good things and philosophy of Vedas, Upanishads, Puranas and if we want, all the religions. Teaching can be done.

Jain society studies its ancient teachings in practice and follows those rules and costumes, then why doesn’t Hindu study the ancient Vedas, language, dialect and many different departments of literature besides practical knowledge of cow husbandry and animal husbandry? Let. By starting the study of Indian agriculture, old life and villages, their customs, food habits, wild life, plants and herbs, etc., we can establish this entire education in foreign countries.

If someone opens such a Gurukul, starts teaching the teachings of the seven sages and re-introduces the ancient schools through research, then the Hindu religion, through its lifestyle and civilization, will be able to spread a harmonious society in the entire world in which there will be peace. There will be unity, employment will increase and the peace process to bind the whole world into one family and stop war will be promoted. All countries and civilizations will be able to come forward and exchange each other’s good words, civilization and ancient medicines.
