Hinduism is lovely.

Below are some main points from an article written on the basic principals of Hinduism, by Dr Pankaj Jain, Ph.D that is very much in sync with my own beliefs:

• The earth can be seen as a manifestation of the goddess, and must be treated with respect.
• The five elements — space, air, fire, water and earth — are the foundation of an interconnected web of life.
• Dharma — often translated as “duty” — can be reinterpreted to include our responsibility to care for the earth.
• Simple living is a model for the development of sustainable economies.
• Our treatment of nature directly affects our karma.

As a half-Argentinian it is practically my duty to eat beef, so clearly this isn’t the religion for me, but I have an enormous amount of respect for their beliefs and agree with a large majority of their teachings.

Yay Hinduism!
