    Well said Jiii. It is the experiential dimension that is stressed in Hinduism be it through bhakti or meditation, more than reading and understanding of a text or dogma. In fact, the masters or gurus are respected not because they are well-versed in any particular text, but because they have experienced the truth first hand.

    OM Shanti,
    A.

    oh my goodness. i have a lot of catching up to do here.

    Agnideva, in quick reply to the little story on the tribe with the heirloom & inheritance, that was was strictly hypothetical. my response would be- the heirloom & inheritance would not literally exist.

    once again, i am thankful for the honesty here. i was not expecting so many replies. give me a day or two to get back to you & the other members.:)

    Namaste
    Agnideva, jiii, Obvious Child, & the others...

    i have read through each of your replies several times. they have all been informative & i am left with a feeling of unity in Hinduism. my questions have been fully answered & somehow i feel we are on the same page with regards to the original point.

    you have all been wonderful & this was also exciting for me to have learned some new things from the inside of Hinduism. i cant think of anything to add or any questions at the moment because everything has been answered very well & complete. that is from both the ancient & the modern views via literal vs. liberal.
    thank you for staying on track with me through this, it was real good.
    i will be back to visit again.

    thank you for this meeting:)
