Hindu Philosophy

Dear Readers,

I spent a rather large amount of time this morning – and will spent more – reading about Hindu philosophy. People often assume with religious traditions like Hinduism or Buddhism that they are homogenous in belief. That is VERY false. The terms might be taken, frankly, to be terms like “philosophy,” which nobody can seem to define in a way that doesn’t piss off a particular group of philosophers, let alone have any consensus. Anyway, in reading, I bring you a bit of wisdom about “mathas” or Hindu cenobitic monastics:

“Only the pontiffs of these maṭhas have the right to perform pooja to Lord Udupi Shri Krishna. They assume the right to perform pooja to Lord Krishna at Udupi one after the other.”

I find that statement hilarious.

Yours in Christ,

Br. James Dominic, OP
