      Hindu mythology are found in Hindu texts such as the Vedic literature,[1] epics like Mahabharata and Ramayana,[2] the Puranas,[3] and regional literature like the Tamil Periya Puranam and the Mangal Kavya of Bengal. Hindu mythology is also found in widely translated popular texts such as the fables of the Panchatantra and the Hitopadesha, as well as in Southeast Asian texts.[4][5

        The problem with that definition is that it belittles sacred Hindu texts to just that - a bunch of mythology. Whereas for the practising Hindu, events of the Mahabharata and Ramayana are fact, not fiction.

        •  

          Chtulu is fact for some too. Most people would disagree though

          Belittles how? How is calling it mythology belittling it? Do you want to take the message these sacred texts or you wanna fight that it happened for real and is not mythology? You know stones floating in water yada yada.

      The book is not titled "Hindu religion is a myth". So I think its your comprehension which is wrong?
      It is simply retelling myths from the hindu scriptures????

    Outstanding as always, Lysander!

    Arguably two of the greatest books ever posted with regards to the subject of Beekeeping and Hindu Mythology…

    Keep up the great work - and be sure to keep us informed of the always amusing anecdotes detailing your adventures as you uncover such deals and enlightening reads. Cheers.

      Thank you. I will. Currently working on disposing an "evil queen" (lawyer) who is defending a super-ego inflated monster (my sister's soon to be ex husband) and has used illegally obtained confidential documents with legal privilege in court.
      While working out ways to sting them, I came across the beekeeping book and thought it would be perfect to post.
      Then my friend Virginia came in (as she got up) and reminded me that it was a myth an adult can only do with 4 hours sleep per night so she sent me to bed (at 6am). Before I was tucked in, I quickly managed to find a book about a Virginia and some interesting myths so I thought I post that for you. ;-)

    I knew I would spot a butt hurt Hindu. By the way Hinduism, if they followed the philosophy, arent supposed to be offended or butt hurt at this but whatever. Thats what religion does to people.

      I am hindu man, usually some people who just flew from india have that mentality. Closed minded to what they have been told. If they live here a while, understand the aussie way or be a little open minded they may just take it as a joke rather than taking it so personal.

      • -3 votes

        "….Take it as a joke" - really? Atleast if someone was to say something about my religion - I won't. May be you have weak legs.

        There are fair size of people who hv been living in Oz from various religions however it is fair to say whilst they may understand the aussie way - hardly any "little open minded" and there are numerous examples without me pointing to a certain religion.

      So according to you, you have full rights to hurt someone. Can you please honestly do the same face-face. I can tell you, you will be booked for your action. Keep your butt clean and live in peace. I know how kids were stolen by Churches, and today they even lost their names. That is what your religion does. Our talk here is to protect , and everyone has rights to protect when it is being abused by rascals.
      will you be happy that someone will abuse your parents? May be multiple parents sperm will not have this problem. One father one mother will protect their family. Similarly Hinduism talks about their parents in vedas

      Now in terms of butt hurt, that is why you don't see Hindu terrorist because we believe in ahinsa, remember Gandhi? Where as your Queen family stole and destroyed many civilisation. See Africa and asia. So who is **hole here?

        I am hurt by your obtusity. Can I ask that you be made to vanish? You havent learned the first thing that religions apparently teach - Tolerance. Your tone is anything but "ahinsa". Apparently "single sperm" isnt any better looking at you and given this country was established by "multiple sperms" people, why are you even here? Do you have any spine or not or you will just lick anything just so that you can earn dollars and live a lifestyle that you could never in your home land and then show off?

        People like you shouldnt have left their homes, let alone leave their country and be allowed to live in a progressive, liberal democracy. You sir are am embarrassment.

        Imagine if the "christian" majority or the nice local Aussie had the same intolerance about outsiders coming in, reaping the lifestyle and money, building their temples. You would be out the next flight and quite frankly you should fly out even if it isnt.

    You know, the sad thing is I posted these books totally without any intention to cause controversy, hurt anyone's feelings etc. They were free, sounded interesting, and so I posted them.

      Religion has invariably been the root of more conflict and destruction than most other subjects combined.

      I am Hindu and I don't see any reason to be offended by this book. Great job bringing the stories to a wider audience.

      Dont worry mate. These nutbags are all around.

      Hindu here.. Definitely not offended.. Feeling appreciative of your efforts to post a good deal about the book…more than anything else..

    Does Hindu allow same sex marriage? Will this book tell me?

    • +1 vote

      Well Hinduism is philosophy more than a religion and is perhaps one of the most progressive religion in the history of time. Kamasutra, erotic same sex sculptures in the temples. It gets a bad name these days because of the "nut" you just read above. So to your question, yes it would. Atleast the original would ;)

        erotic same sex sculptures in the temples

        Example please. I'm 100% positive there is no temple in India at least that has same sex sculptures in or on it.

          Unfortunately you know jack about vedoc scriptures. You havent told me one thing you learnt from it.

            @dealsucker: One temple with a couple of lesbian acts on it doesn't mean homosexuality was allowed according to Vedic texts, unless you can show specific quotes from Vedic scriptures that verify this otherwise. Also worth considering is whether Hindus actually treated these temples as a place of worship or not, given the explicit nature of the carvings - is there any evidence that Vedic rituals were carried out at these temples or were they ignored by society due to these sexualised and homosexual carvings?

            I actually own hard copies of the Rig, Saam, Yajur and Atharva Vedas, and have read through the Manu Smriti, along with also owning copies of the Bhagavad-Gita and Ramayana (both versions) so am well read in Hindu scriptures being a practising Brahmin. Not sure what you're after from me to prove to you though, more so who are you for me to prove anything too? Just another online troll from what I can deduce based on your comments.

              @Trishool: Burn them all and grab a copy of the Kama Sutra.

              It will open your mind, if not necessarily any of your other cavities…

              Not that there's anything wrong with that!

            •  

              @Trishool: A temple with lesbian act, an erotic book and that still doesn't tell you anything. Open you eyes and more importantly your mind. What is explicit to you is just another form of love making to a same sex couple and you are no one to judge them. Besides history is always written from a perspective - who knows what was originally said or done and whats written. You cannot though re-do a sculpture, thiugh, without destroying it.

              And I know everything I need to know about you when you said I am practicing "Brahmin", the so called upper caste and I am sure you enjoy the privilege as well but not here my friend. Here you are just a religions nut job and you might as well go back to your original home. But no, a practicing brahmin needs dollars and a lifestyle as well. Oh well there's the contradiction. No spine. Sermons blah blah.

                @dealsucker: You mate- need to relax -so much negativity has clouded your ability to think. Calling names and asking others to go to your original home reflects your intolerance to differing opinions. Do Yoga and meditation, it will definitely help. Stay safe

                @dealsucker: First you say this to me:

                Open you eyes and more importantly your mind. What is explicit to you is just another form of love making to a same sex couple and you are no one to judge them.

                Then you say this in the very next paragraph:

                And I know everything I need to know about you when you said I am practicing "Brahmin", the so called upper caste and I am sure you enjoy the privilege as well but not here my friend. Here you are just a religions nut job and you might as well go back to your original home. But no, a practicing brahmin needs dollars and a lifestyle as well.

                Either you've got something against Hinduism or Brahmins (you sound like you're an untouchable :D) or you just to get laid with your homosexual partner. Either way just please go away and enjoy your life.

      Vedic scriptures do not permit same sex marriages. It's black and white on the matter, just like most other religions.

      •  

        nice. love me some legal discrimination

      •  

        Which is exactly why there is no space for religions in 21st century. Hinduism is around 4000 years old. Like who in their right minds would have a moral compass defined by a book written some thousands of years ago and there is no proof that its is written either because it depends on the interpretation from one gen to another, but you cant rebuild a sculpture without destroying it.
