Let us talk of conversion as per Sanatan Dharma.
LINGODHAR DIKSHA is the process to enter in the fold of Shaivism. Proper rituals are prescribed as per chapter 21st and 22nd of Tantraloka. This is also covered in chapter 17th of Tantrasara, which is summary of this elaborate text.
Tantraloka is the most fascinating work on Indology and a comprehensive document on Hindu spirituality, consisting of thirty seven chapters. It contains the various aspects of Indian religious philosophy, the detailed rituals covering most of the subtle processes and secret rituals along with their basis. Various branches of Indian spiritual philosophy, including aesthetics, like music, dance, etc. have been beautifully expounded.
I agree with the article entirely. It is time people should realise that Hindus must covert as well. Particularly when our misguided girls are being converted to marry their so-called lovers from other religions. Girls should be asked to convert others to Hinduism instead of them converting to others. This will be one way to stop Hindus converting because other religions would never agree to convert and then our girls would realize that what is the importance of ones own religion.
Even today there are politicians in Bharat who are opnely canvassing for a Muslim chief minister in a state in Bharat. Soon after independence a Muslim in Kolkata said "Haste Haste lia he Pakistan, ladte ladte lenge Hindustan."
Population of Hindus in Bharat is in decline, where as of other faiths is is sharp increase. What other choice do we have to preserve what little is left of Bharat?
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q 1: Is Hinduism a religion or is it a Wa y of Life?
Neither. Hinduism is a term coined by Western people applied to a group of people who believe in Santana Dharma (eternal code of righteousness). It is a spiritual philosophy with clearly enunciated tenets (comparable to the Ten Commandments for the Christians). I have heard some Hindus claim that Hindu dharma is far too complex, and ambiguous on many issues. In saying that, these commentators are simply stating ignorance of their scriptures. Sanatana dharma came into being in Bhaaratvarsha, now referred to as India. However, over the years, some followers of dharma have evolved and established different practices while retaining the basic tenets of dharma. These are the many religions that took birth in India. Examples are Shaivism, Shaktism, Vaishnavism, Arya Samaj, Jainism, Buddhism, Sikhism, and many other smaller subgroups. A spiritual philosophy that has given birth to many religions is thus more than a religion. This philosophy is unique in that there is no dogma, nor the practice of prescription or proscription by any organised hierarchy. Although belief in the Supreme Brahman, The Unknowable, is one of the fundamental tenets, agnostics and atheists have always been accepted so long as they practice dharma. So, belief in, and practice of, dharma is fundamental to being a Hindu.
