Hinduism

According to Hinduism, marriage is defined as two souls which comes together and unite with each other in spirit and that make a perfect marriage. The more strongly they become united, they concentrate less on sex.

The more they are in love with each, they become united with God.

As stated in the holy book of Hindus, Srimad Bhagavat Gita, by Lord Krishna,

Chapter 2, verse 22

                vasamsi jirnani yatha vihaya navani grhnati naro’parani

                tatha sarirani vihaya jirnany anyani samyati navani dehi

 

Translation

“As a person gives up old and worn out garments and accepts new apparel, similarly the embodied soul giving up old and worn out bodies verily accepts new bodies.”

So the soul neither be created nor be destroyed.  It’s just the two souls united at the marriage and work toward to accomplish the purpose needed by each other.

Buddhism

Contradict to the Hinduism; Buddhist doctrine rejects the idea of an immortal soul.  Also, it clearly states that there is no concept of soul.

I just noted this point here as it is one of the biggest religion followed by many, and I don’t want go in depth analysis on this as it’s not relevant to this analysis.

Christianity

In the New Testament, the Greek word for “soul” is transliterated as psuche or psyche.

Psuche denotes one’s inner life or actual personhood. God, who has created the “soul,” can also destroy it.

Jesus said: “Be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matthew 10:28).

Here, Jesus differentiated between the “soul” and the body. “Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul,” he said (verse 28). His words indicate that while the body is corrupted at death, the “soul” continues on, though both “soul” and body can end in soul-destroying hell.

So the soul is considered to be there on the earth as well as on the Hell or Heaven. But that considered to a mortal one.

Jainism

Jainism believes in the existence of the soul from human to plants and even the micro organisms like bacteria and viruses.

The basic concept of this religion is based on the existence of the soul. And they classify the soul into two categories.

  1. Liberated Souls: The souls that attained the Moksha, and which will not be part of lifecycle again.

Moksha (Sanskrit language):  emancipation, liberation or release from the birth and death life cycle.

  1. Non-Liberated Souls – The soul which are struck in the lifecycle based on the karma of the individual soul. There is no start and end of the soul.

According to Jainism , the soul is eternal and just changes the bodies till it attains the moksha. The concept of the soul is similar to the Hinduism.

Judaism

In modern Judaism, the soul is considered to be a thing given to the person upon his first breath.

And it relates the closeness of a person to God, which is based on the quality of the soul with one’s performance of the commandments.

Sikhism

Sikhism considers the soul as an integral part of the God and the God within the soul. Once the soul departs from the body, it becomes lifeless  and the soul is believed to be the driver of this body.

Out of many oldest religions in the world, four religions came from India namely, Hinduism and the subset of this religion, Sikhism, Jainism and Buddhism.

Among the four Indian religions only one religion,the Buddhism, contradicts to the soul concept and this is the only religion in the world that doesn’t believe in the existence of the soul. All the other religions except this religion, believe in the existence of the soul and they have their own descriptions and the closeness of the soul to the God.

The world within us

Of the world within us, a million stars shine,
We live in our own mirage of philosophy,
Every cell in our celestial body-
Equals a millions of solar systems,
Burns and energize our mind and thoughts,
We walk with a world in us,
Carrying millions of earth,
We forget to remember we are humans,
Look at the world around you,
Smile at ease with heart and peace,
Nod the fellow human passing by,
We never die, neither the atoms within us,
Every human has the respect,
The respect we forget to offer.

 

Tablet Minds

 

Speaking to the tabs,

Gadgets make us laugh at ease,

An electronic era of humans.

Peaceful world

I dreamed a world of silence,
where humanoid exists ever,
War of silence wins over Earth,
The world rests in peace.

Mistakes are for Men

Mistakes are meant to be,

Men are tend to fall asleep,

To make the men perfect.

An open letter from Mars to Earth : Save the Mars

As a series of writing the letters from Mars, I will be writing more on this and stay tuned.

Dear Earthians,

We are fed of your space travels to our planet Mars, and we are in need of saving of our mother land. The number of space ships that arrive to our land are increasing day by day, and we have been polluted as much you did on the earth.

The number of human beings habituated on our soil in relatively high on the recent years, and we have been exploited in all the ways. Just to remind you that, we have never colonized any planet and we have a good relationship with other planets on our family, and you, the human beings of the Earth have started dirtying the solar family.

It has come to our notice that, you have been sending space ships to all the planets on our family and trying to colonize with the human race. The number of space ships landed on Mars as on earth dated, 31 December 2505, more than 10,053. Our air space is facing lot of traffic and the number of humans travelling to Mars as tourists are doubling every year. And the humans are destroying our nature and they are illegally started living here.

We request you to take an immediate action to stop polluting the nature and creating a mess on our solar family. We are far superior than you in the all the ways, and we want you take the following actions immediately.

  • Limit the number of tourists travelling to Mars, to just 50 humans per Martian year.
  • Limit the number of space ships entering into our air space
  • We will not allow space ships to enter into Mars space, rather we will give some space on Phobos or Deimos, humans can come here and meet the relatives who are staying in Mars.
  • We will allow the total 1,023,445 humans to continue their life on Mars but we want to stop any further humans.

We request a reply asap and failing to take any action within few months will result in severe action from our side!

The Supreme Ruler of Mars,

19 January 2506

God’s Religion

 

He hath the religion,

Man doeth follow him,

Brain of an atheist factory.
