Not that I’ve studied Hinduism extensively, but one part that appeals to me is that viewing beauty (especially in nature) is like prayer in western religions. I like that idea that instead of talking to yourself you actually go out and appreciate the universe.

Actually this sounds like transparent proselytizing. Or spam. (Or both.)

Since no one else will, I’ll come out and say that I think Hinduism is a load of bullshit. Though I do love the magic archery. And the mature, moral ambiguity in the texts about warfare and politics. Really, much better than Christianity, Judaism and Islam in that respect.

It makes sense of how extensive it is, Hinduism is one of the oldest religions. I do enjoy the attention and the beauty they aknowledge in nature, but spiritually, it doesn’t do a whole lot aside from finding it’s verses relaxing sometimes.

But what else does It do?
Does It put the lotion on it’s skin? :)

I’m not a fan of the caste system but it’s entirely possible that there things that exist beyond our current level of comprehension. In fact I’m absolutely certain that we don’t know all there is to know.

That sounds like a much more inclusive and sensible view of how life works.
