 Comparative Religion For all Human: 

 

By TM Kamal Pasha   

Definition of God:

 

The Brahma Sutra of Hinduism is:

Ekam Brahm, dvitiya naste neh na naste kinchan. (Sanskrit)

There is only one God, not the second; not at all, not at all, not in the least bit. 

 

Never worship any one else except Ishwar:

Rig Veda 10:49:1

“Ishwar alone provides true knowledge to truth seekers. He alone is promoter of knowledge and motivates virtuous people into noble actions to seek bliss. He alone is the creator and manager of the world. Hence never worship anyone else except one and only Ishwar”.

Rigveda 8:1:1

 "Ma cid anyad vi sansata sakhayo ma rishanyata"
....Meaning-"O friends, do not worship anybody but Him, the Divine One. Praise Him alone."

Rigveda 10.48.1:
Ishwar alone is omnipresent and manager of entire universe. He alone provides victory and eternal cause of world. All souls should look up only to Him in same manner as children look up to their Father. He alone provides for our sustenance and bliss.

Rigveda 10.48.5
Ishwar enlightens the entire world. He is undefeated and undying. He is the creator of the world. All souls should seek bliss through seeking knowledge and acting thereupon. They should never shun the friendship of Ishwar.

Yajurveda 40.1:
This entire world is embedded within and managed by the One and Only One Ishwar. Never dare do any injustice or desire riches through unjust means. Instead follow the righteous path and enjoy His bliss. After all He alone is ...source of all bliss!

Yajurveda 13.4
There is One and only One Creator and Maintainer of the entire world. He alone is sustaining the earth, sky and other heavenly bodies. He is Bliss Himself! He alone deserves to be worshipped by us.

Atharvaveda 10.7.38
Ishwar alone is greatest and worth being worshipped. He is the source of all knowledge and activities.

Atharvaveda 13.4.16-21
He is neither two, nor three, nor four, nor five, nor six, nor seven, nor eight, nor nine, nor ten. He is, on contrary, One and Only One. There is no Ishwar except Him. All devatas reside within Him and are controlled by Him. So He alone should be worshipped, none else.

God/Indra kills his father

6. And thrice-a-hundred mettled steeds, ten-times-a-thousand cows he gave.
7. Glut thee, O Singer, glut thee like a bird on a ripe-fruited tree.
8. Thy lips and tongue move swiftly like the sharp blades of a pair of shears.

12. Even as an archer aims his shaft address this prayer unto the Gods.
 

Rigveda:

 

In sanskrit nara=Man and samsa=praiseworthy, in one word Muhammad(SAW) was praiseworthy.
Format of quotation: Rig Veda Book no:Hym no :verse no

Rig Veda 1:13:3

"Dear Narāśaṁsa, sweet of tongue, the giver of oblations, I
Invoke to this our sacrifice."
Rig Veda 1:18:9

"I have seen Narāśaṁsa, him most resolute, most widely famed,
As ’twere the Household Priest of heaven."

Rig Veda 1:106:4

"To mighty Narāśaṁsa, strengthening his might, to Pūṣan, ruler over men, we pray with hymns.
Even as a chariot from a difficult ravine, bountiful Vasus, rescue us from all distress."
Rig Veda 1:142:3

"He wondrous, sanctifying, bright, sprinkles the sacrifice with mead,
Thrice, Narāśaṁsa from the heavens, a God mid Gods adorable."
Rigveda 1:164:46

"Sages (learned Priests) call one God by many names."

In other words, there are a variety of names given to this One God, and the Rigved alone gives no less than 33 different attributes to Almighty.

Rig veda 2:1:3

"Hero of Heroes, Agni! Thou art Indra, thou art Viṣṇu of the Mighty Stride, adorable:
Thou, Brahmaṇaspati, the Brahman finding wealth: thou, O Sustainer, with thy wisdom tendest us."
Rig veda 2:3:2

"May Narāśaṁsa lighting up the chambers, bright in his majesty through threefold heaven,
Steeping the gift with oil diffusing purpose, bedew the Gods at chiefest time of worship.

Rig Veda 3:34:1
‘He is the Bountiest Giver.’

Ma cid anyad vi sansata sakhayo ma rishanyata.

-O friends, do not worship anybody but Him, the Divine One. Praise Him alone.

Rig Veda 5:5:2

"He, Narāśaṁsa, ne’er beguiled, inspiriteth this sacrifice:
For sage is he, with sweets in hand.

Rigveda 5:81:1

"Devasya samituk parishtutih."

-Verily, great is the glory of the Divine Creator.

Rig veda 6:45:16

‘Ya ekt it mustihi’ -

-Praise Him who is Matchless and Alone.

The ‘Brahma Sutra’ of Hinduism, of the Vedanta -

the main teaching is,
‘Akkum Braham Dusta Nastim - Niya nastim Kincham’

-There is only one God, not a second one, not at all, not at all, not in the least bit’.

So according to the Hindu Scriptures themselves you will understand the concept of God in Hinduism is to believe in One God only and there is no such teaching of idol worship.

Rig Veda 7:2:2

"With sacrifice to these we men will honour the majesty of holy Narāśaṁsa-
To these the pure, most wise, the thought. inspirers, Gods who enjoy both sorts of our oblations."

Rigveda 8:1:1

 "Ma cid anyad vi sansata sakhayo ma rishanyata"
-"O friends, do not worship anybody but Him, the Divine One. Praise Him alone."

 

 

The most popular amongst all the Hindu scriptures is the Bhagavad Gita. Consider the following verse from the Gita:

Bhagavad Gita 7:20

"Those whose intelligence has been stolen by material desires surrender unto demigods and follow the particular rules and regulations of worship according to their own natures."

The Gita states that people who are materialistic worship demigods i.e. "gods" besides the True God.

Kalki Purana:

2:4 "Tacchrutva pundarikakso

        mahmanam idam avravit

        sambhale visnuyasasam

        grhe pradurbhabam vaham

        sumatyam matari vibho

        kanvavan tvannedesatah"

------After hearing everithing in detail lotus eyed Lord hari said O brahma rest assured that i will soon descend to the earth and appear in the village known as sambhala, I will take birth in the house of Brahmana named Vishnuyasa from the womb of his wife Sumati.

2:5 "Caturbhir bhratrbhir deva

       karisyami kaliksavam

       bhavanto bandhava devah

      svamsena avatarisvatha"

----My mission will be to eliminate wicked Kali, with the help of my four brothers O demigods, your expansion should also take birth on the earth to assist me.

Bhabishya Purana: Prati Sarg, Part 3:3:3:5-27

(Talking about Muhammad(SAW))

“A malechha (belonging to a foreign country and speaking foreign language) spiritual teacher will appear with his companions. His name will be MAHAMAD (Muhammad). Raja (Bhoj) after giving this MAHADEV ARAB (of angelic disposition) a bath in the 'Panchgavya' and the Ganges water, (i.e. purging him of all sins) offered him the presents of his sincere devotion and showing him all reverence said, 'I make obeisance to thee.' 'O Ye! the pride of mankind, the dweller in ARABIA, Ye have collected a great force to kill the Devil and you yourself have been protected from the malechha opponents (idol worshipers, pagans).' ‘O Ye! the image of the Most Pious God the biggest Lord, I am a slave to thee, take me as one lying on thy feet.'
“The Malechhas have spoiled the well-known land of the ARABS. Arya Dharma is not to be found in that country. Before also there appeared a misguided fiend whom I had killed [note: e.g., Abraha Al-Ashram, the Abyssinian viceroy of Yemen, who attacked Mecca]; he has now again appeared being sent by a powerful enemy. To show these enemies the right path and to give them guidance the well-known MAHAMAD (Muhammad), who has been given by me the epithet of Brahma is busy in bringing the Pishachas to the right path. O Raja! You need not go to the land of the foolish Pishachas, you will be purified through my kindness even where you are. At night, he of the angelic disposition, the shrewd man, in the guise of a Pishacha said to Raja Bhoj, "O Raja! Your Arya Dharma has been made to prevail over all religions, but according to the commandments of ‘Ashwar Parmatma (God, Supreme Spirit), I shall enforce the strong creed of the meat-eaters. My follower will be a man circumcised, without a tail (on his head), keeping beard, creating a revolution, announcing call for prayer and will be eating all lawful things. He will eat all sorts of animals except swine. They will not seek purification from the holy shrubs, but will be purified through warfare. Because of their fighting the irreligious nations, they will be known as MUSALMANS (Muslims). I shall be the originator of this religion of the meat-eating nation."

Brahma has sex with his daughter

Satapatha Brahmana 1:7:4:1-7

1. Pragâpati conceived a passion for his own daughter,--either the Sky or the Dawn. 'May I pair with her!' thus (thinking) he united with her.

2. This, assuredly, was a sin in the eyes of the gods. 'He who acts thus towards his own daughter, our sister, [commits a sin],' they thought.

3. The gods then said to this god who rules over the beasts (Rudra), 'This one, surely, commits a sin who acts thus towards his own daughter, our sister. Pierce him!' Rudra, taking aim, pierced him. Half of his seed fell to the ground. And thus it came to pass.

4. Accordingly it has been said by the Rishi  with reference to that (incident), 'When the father embraced his daughter, uniting with her, he dropped his seed on the earth.' This (became) the chant (uktha) called âgnimâruta; in (connection with)

this it is set forth how the gods caused that seed to spring. When the anger of the gods subsided, they cured Pragâpati and cut out that dart of this. (Rudra); for Pragâpati, doubtless, is this sacrifice.

5. They said (to one another), 'Think of some means by which that (part of the sacrifice torn out with the dart) may not be lost, and how it may be but a small portion of the offering itself!'

6. They said, 'Take it round to Bhaga (Savitri, the Patron), who sits on the south side (of the sacrificial ground): Bhaga will eat it by way of fore-portion, so that it may be as though it were offered.' They accordingly took it round to Bhaga, who sat on the south side. Bhaga (Savitri) looked at it: it burnt out his eyes. And thus it came to pass. Hence they say, 'Bhaga is blind.'

7. They said, 'It has not yet become appeased here: take it round to Pûshan!' They accordingly

Brhadarayanka Upanishad 1:4:2-6


Life after death:

Rig Veda 10:16:5

5. Again, O Agni, to the Fathers send him who, offered in thee, goes with our oblations. Wearing new life let him increase his offspring: let him rejoin a body, Jatavedas.
Bhagabath Geeta 2:22

As a person puts on new garments, giving up old ones, similarly, the soul accepts new material bodies, giving up the old and useless ones.

Prohibition of alcohol:

Manu Smriti: 9:235. The slayer of a Brahmana, (A twice-born man) who DRINKS (the spirituous LIQUOR called) Sura, he who steals (the gold of a Brahmana), and he who violates a Guru's bed, must each and all be considered as men who committed mortal sins (mahapataka).

Manu Smriti: 11:55. Killing a Brahmana, DRINKING (the spirituous LIQUOR called) Sura, stealing (the gold of a Brahmana), adultery with a Guru's wife, and associating with such (offenders), they declare (to be) mortal sins (mahapataka).

Rig Veda: 8:2:12. Quaffed juices fight within the breast. The DRUNKEN praise not by their WINE, The naked praise not when it rains.

Rig Veda: 8:21:14. Thou findest not the wealthy man to be thy friend: those scorn thee who are flown with WINE. What time thou thunderest and gatherest, then thou, even as a Father, art invoked.

Prohibition of interests:

Manu Smriti: 11:62. Defiling a damsel, USURY, breaking a vow, selling a tank, a garden, one's wife, or child,

Manu Smriti: 8:152. Stipulated INTEREST beyond the legal rate, being against (the law), cannot be recovered; they call that a USURIOUS way (of lending); (the lender) is (in no case) entitled to (more than) five in the hundred.


Permission of non-vegeterian foods:

Oxen slaughter in the wedding- Rig Veda 10:85:13

The bridal pomp of suriya, which Savitar started, moved along. In Magha days are Oxen slain, in Arjuries the wed the bride.

Inrda coocked dog's intestine-Rig Veda 4:18:13

In deep distress I coocked a dog's intestines. Among the Gods I found not one to comfort. My consort I beheld in degradation. The Falcon then brought me the plesant Soma.

Indra eat Bull-Rig Veda 10:86:13-14

13 Wealthy Vrsakapayi, blest with sons and consorts of thy sons,

Indra will eat thy bulls, thy dear oblation that effecteth much. Supreme is Indra over all.
14 Fifteen in number, then, for me a score of bullocks they prepare,
And I devour the fat thereof: they fill my belly full with food. Supreme is Indra over all.

Ramayana: 2:20:29. (Rama says) “I shall live in a solitary forest like a sage for fourteen years, leaving off MEAT and living with roots, fruits and honey” (Valmiki Ramayana: Ayodhya Kand/Kanda/Kandam: Book 2 - Book of Ayodhya: Sarga (Chapter) 20: Verse 29).

Ramayana: 2:20:17-18. There, Rama saw the articles of worship kept ready for the purpose of the sacred ceremony like curd, unbroken rice, clarified butter, SWEET MEATS, things fit for oblation, fried grain, garlands made of white flowers, rice boiled in milk, mixture of rice and peas with a few spices, sacrificial sticks, vessels full of water etc.
One animal is food for other animal-Manu Smriti: 5:29-30. What is destitute of motion is the food of those endowed with locomotion; (ANIMALS) without fangs (are the food) of those with fangs, those without hands of those who possess hands, and the timid of the bold. The eater who daily even devours those destined to be his food, COMMITS NO SIN; for the creator himself created both the eaters and those who are to be eaten (for those special purposes).
Animal were created for sacrifice-Manu Smriti: 5: 39. Svayambhu (the Self-existent) himself created animals for the sake of sacrifices; sacrifices (have been instituted) for the good of this whole (world); hence the slaughtering (of BEASTS) for sacrifices is NOT SLAUGHTERING (in the ordinary sense of the word).
Buffalo, Beef, Goat, Rhinoceres are to be eaten-Mahabharata: Anushasana Parva (Book 13): 88. With the meat of the BUFFALO their gratification lasts for eleven months. With BEEF presented at the Sraddha, their gratification, it is said, lasts for a full year. Payasa mixed with ghee is as much acceptable to the Pitris as beef. With the meat of the Vadhrinasa the gratification of the Pitris lasts for twelve years. 1 The flesh of the RHINOCERES, offered to the Pitris on the anniversaries of the lunar days on which they died, becomes inexhaustible. The potherb called Kalasaka, the petals of the Kanchana flower, and meat of the GOAT also, thus offered, prove inexhaustible. 2 In this connection, O Yudhishthira, there are some verses, originally sung by the Pitris, that are sung (in the world). They were communicated to me in former days by Sanatkumara.--He that has taken birth in our race should give us Payasa mixed with ghee on the thirteenth day (of the dark fortnight), under the constellation Magha, during the Sun's southward course. One born in our race should, under the constellation Magha, as if in the observance of a vow, offer the meat of goat or the petals of the Kanchana flower. One should also offer us, with due rites, Payasa mixed with ghee, dedicating it on a spot covered by the shadow of an elephant.--Many sons should be coveted so that even one may go to Gaya (for performing the Sraddha of his ancestors), where stands the banian that is celebrated over all the worlds and that makes all offerings made under its branches inexhaustible. 3 Even a little of water, roots, fruits, meat, and rice, mixed with honey, if offered on the anniversary of the day of death becomes inexhaustible.

Lord Indra ate Dog tail: Rig Veda 4:18:13 


Permission of multiple spouses:

Ramayana: 2:8:12

 "Rama's WIVES will get delighted. Your daughters-in-law will be unhappy because of Bharata's waning position."
Ramayana: Rama's father Dasharatha had 3 WIVES.
Mahabharata: Draupadi (Panchali) had 5 HUSBANDS from Pandavas (Pandava Brothers).
Mahabharata: Krishna had about 16,108 WIVES.


Sex/Incest

Rig Veda 3:31:1

Wise teaching, following the thought of order, the sonless gained a grandson from his daughter.


Veil/Head scarf/Modesty:

Rig Veda: 8:33:19. Cast down thine eyes and look not up. More closely set thy feet. Let NONE SEE WHAT THY GARMENT VEILS, for thou, a Brahman, hast become a dame.
