Sanatan Dharma - the real nameMany people are following but few of them know that the real name for Hinduism is Sanatan Dharma or Vedic Dharma which means Eternal Truth.
There is only one GodNow you may have heard of Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh who are the Creator, Preserver and Destroyer respectively but actually Hinduism has only one God and that is Brahman. These three are different forms emerging from Brahman. And then certain more forms like Lord Rama, Lord Krishna emerges from them.
Hinduism promotes feminismIf you know Hinduism then you must have known that it gives equal spot to Lord Rama, Mata Laxmi, Lord Krishna, Mata Saraswati, Lord Shankar, Mata Vaishno etc. They wiould be found sharing equal positions in temples.
FlexibilityWell Hinduism doesn't bound you. You see it says that there is only one God available in different forms so you can worship any since ultimately you are worshiping the God almighty.
There is no written scriptureNow this is something new! You must have heard that Hinduism revolves around the Vedas but in facts, Hinduism was born long before Vedas were even written! It's after long time that some saints think to write about it.
There is no CasteNow you may have heard people saying, I am of caste "Hindu" but in reality there is actually no caste in Hinduism!
It's not only about faith!You must have heard of Khajuraho temples? Now that said, I don't need to say anything more about this point.
Menstruation is considered as pure stateThere are temples where you will find people praising a bleeding statue! They consider that menstruation is a pure state for a woman and she should be worshiped in that.
Suicide is not a bad thingNow in real world suicide is not considered as good and also is not allowed by the government duties as well but if you read about Hinduism then you will come to notice that it supports suicide. According to it, it's a forward step to find the divine powers of this universe.
Atheists and theists share equal groundsThis may be painful to some of you. But according to Hinduism, there is nothing wrong in being Atheist as it was never about the difference in them. If you look closely, it was always about the positivity and not faith! So if you are an atheist, be that, there is nothing wrong with that.
