A Brief Blog Profile: Hindu-Blog
by Thomas Hynes
Hindu-Blog is really more of an online magazine. Publishing quite often, the site covers a lot of ground. The main criteria for content, however, is anything that relates to Hinduism. In their own words, the blog "advocates practical Hinduism and reformation in Hindu society, especially the eradication of the caste system and other social evils." Going further, they believe modern Hinduism should have a greater "emphasis on equality, education and philanthropic activities. "
This blog is probably a great resource for any Hindu readers out there. But, it's also pretty informative (and interesting) for non-Hindu readers, as well. For instance, here is an overview of the origins of Hinduism. And here is another post on understanding the ancient religion. This post outlines the top 10 tallest Hindu statues. And this post helps readers determine the best way to worship while at home.
Truthfully, I don't know all that much about Hinduism. And, that's my bad. It's a seriously huge religion with many followers. And let's not forget, it's been around for quite a long time, too. But, as I'm learning here, I have no reason to remain ignorant to this beautiful and ancient faith. The information is out there. And a lot of it can be found on Hindu-Blog.
