Analysis Of Spiritualism


Hinduism is also known as Sanatana Dharma; which teaches us “the way of living life and finding truth suggested by the ancient Vedic literature”. A rich and complex symbolic religion; whose principles are based on Vedas and Purana. They are known as world’s most ancient scriptures. Hinduism may be a polytheistic religion, but its practice is based on common principles and beliefs. The main motive of practicing spiritualism in Hinduism is to turn knowledge into wisdom and transformation of spirit for achieving universal goals of life i.e. moksha. ‘Moksha means the release of spirit from rebirth cycle urged by the laws of Karma.’

According to Hindu philosophy


Analysis Of Spiritualism


Everything in the world is an illusion; the only thing that exists is truth and God. In Hinduism; one can find a true difference between belief and faith. A belief may or may not be true, but faith is assured or a guaranteed. As per traditional Hindu philosophy; after parents – the guru (the teacher who leads an individual from darkness to light, towards God) is the most important person in life. Hinduism believes nothing is considered bad as long as it is within limits and the body accepts it. It is widely believed that excess in anything leads to sin. Spiritualism in Hindu is not only worshiping God, following rituals and offering donations; but it also explains “how to make the world a better place to live in peace and security!”


Spiritualism is the symbol of hope and courage


Analysis Of Spiritualism


A spiritualist never destroys anything nor harms anybody, but he/she can bring revolution to change the world. For example, Mahatma Gandhi, the father of our nation and the prominent leader of the Indian independence movement during the British rule in India is one of the greatest spiritualist ever born. So spiritualism is never biased by any individual thoughts or belief. It brings peace and unity into the world.


Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without a spiritual life.
