A popular misconception about Hindus is that we have “millions of gods”. Yet we have at our core one God the absolute, formless, only Reality – the Supreme Universal Soul, who is called Brahman. Recently I had a visit from two very nice ladies of a religious order whose mission is to gain converts via door to door proselytizing . They introduced themselves, and one of them gave me a small publication (which she referred to as a magazine). To be polite, I accepted it and after a cursory browse put it where I put other such materials.
Why would a multiple decade Christian become a resolute Hindu? I mean, why not after decades, just stay in my birth religion? A fear on some level that maybe it is true? That maybe Christianity is the only path to God and if I don’t follow exactly what The Bible says, I will burn in Hell forever. Or perhaps passive acceptance, as in I know there is something more but just where is it?
