I'd just like to add something to Tony's question about vastness. It is said that if you ask 100 Hindus the same question, you'll get 101 different answers. That also illustrates our vastness. I should have made it clear from the beginning that I'm no authority, just one guy out of a billion. This is why Venu and my answers will be really different, and if we added a few more, they'd all be different as well.
That said, there is also a certain amount of ethnocentricity within Hinduism, as some Hindu folks (including myself) haven't gotten out enough to truly realise its vastness. Therefore, we may speak about it as if our version of Hinduism is representative of all of Hinduism, which would be folly.
Sorry i didn't say this earlier ... should have.
I see it is good to have it in this thread as well Vinayaka.I erred. Post 9 above was meant to be in the other thread. maybe the mod could move it.
I also liked Earths post above. You may also have gotten a great smile from that post.
