As for opinions, a reconstructionist religion doesn't give you a temple to drop into, but neither is it tied to an ethnic community in the way that Indian or Chinese faith would be. The essential teaching of Hellenism is the same as that of all the religions not created by some-one claiming to be a prophet. It was summed up by Maximus of Tyre: "there is one God, the ruler and father of all things, and many gods, children of God, ruling together with him." It is world affirming, unlike Buddhism and some Hinduism. Many have believed in reincarnation, but not as some dreadful bondage to illusion or suffering. It regards the ultimate goal of mankind as union with the divine, but does not neglect our duty to others.
