    Nope.

    Yeah that's the modern meaning in Hindi/Gujarati :lol:

    In Sanskrit, "Nastika" means someone who does not accept the authority of the Vedas. So Christians, Muslims, Sikhs are all termed as "Nastika" since they reject the authority of the Vedas (even though they accept the existence of God).

    You should be aware that there are at least 3 branches of Hinduism that are atheist/non-theist, and yet they are termed as "Astika" since they accept the authority of the Vedas.

    It's magic :smug:

    :rofl: Nah JK
    I've been researching Sanatana Dharma for about 5 years now lol


    Funny thing, if a Muslim, Christian or Sikh was well informed about their religion no-one would be this surprised and yet if a Hindu knows their religion in depth, it's like that person is the 8th wonder of the world or something :toofunny:

    Lmao if it works for you, then good for you!

    Because it's such a broad and diverse religion, you are simply responding to as much of the religion as your current level of spiritual development allows you to experience and there is absolutely nothing wrong in that!
    Rejoice in it!

    I got philosophical :lol:

    Gotta say, I'm really impressed. Not many people know about the Samkhya and Mimansa schools of thought.
    Thought I was weird for being curious about my own religion. clearly I am not one of a kind

    Thank you ji

    Lol I think it's a shame, because there's some really deep and interesting stuff if you scratch just beneath the surface and unfortunately that's rarely done.

    I find the Vaisheshika school of thought quite interesting. It's a shame that Vaisheshika and Nyaya died out though :sad:

    Sure there may not be many followers left, but these are schools of thought, and should you want to you could easily follow the teachings through self-study.
    E.g. Yoga is a school of thought (not many people consider it as such though now-a-days) but it has been largely revived as a way of life for several thousands of people.
    P.S.
    It is a pity though, in my opinion they were the most scientific schools of thought.
    Just goes to show how much our religion is getting tainted by these fake 'babas' and people whose beliefs are more superstition than religion e.g. the kind of people that don't let you cut nails in the evening ;P

    Been posting verses from the spiritual traditions of Hinduism and now to throw a curve ball (), a quote from the materialist tradition:

    "As long as you live, live happily!
    Accumulate debts and drink ghee (i.e.: live lavishly),
    Because once the body is reduced to ashes, how will you come back again?!"

    "Yavat jivet, sukham jivet.
    Rinam krutva, ghrtam pibet,
    Bhasmi bhutasya dehasya punaragamanam kutah"
