I am proud to belong to a religion which has
taught the world both tolerance and universal acceptance. We
believe not only in universal toleration, but we accept all
religions as true. - Swami Vivekanada
Hinduwebsite.com is dedicated to providing quality
information on Hinduism and related religions that originated in
India, without belittling other religions.
We aim to represent main stream Hinduism for Hindus all over
the world, not just a particular community, caste or nation. We focus on the
essential principles, beliefs and practices
of Hinduism, not a particular version or variety, as found in
the ancient scriptures.
Through our articles, books and other presentations we want
to present the richness and diversity of Hinduism without
aligning ourselves to any particular sectarian movement, guru
tradition or practice. We respect all beliefs, gods, saints and
gurus and all philosophies and sectarian approaches to Hinduism.
We believe that the paths to God are many and individuals have
to choose what suits them best.
We respect life in all forms and recognize each individual's
inalienable right to enjoy life and pursue his or her beliefs
with dignity and responsibility. However, we do not support such
beliefs and practices that undermine the value of life, the
institution of family or
endanger the order and regularity of society, and those
ideologies that denigrate religion or usurp the role of God. We
believe that as far as religion is concerned, governments should
mind their business without overstepping upon our religious
freedom or individual liberties.
We also believe that religion is a means, not an
end in itself. We pursue religion to experience peace and
happiness upon earth. Our identity should not come from the
religions we practice, but the humanity we represent. If religions
create discord and disharmony amongst us, we believe it is
because of lack of discretion and our inability to deal
with our base nature.
Hinduwebsite.com is now over 12 years old and growing from
strength to strength. Our aim is serve you to the extent we can.
As a policy, we do not actively seek contributions. However, as
part of our dharma we provide the community with an opportunity
to participate in charitable activity. Therefore, if you want to help us the
best way to do it is by purchasing our books. You can also help us in many other ways, without incurring any
expenditure. For details
