The Vedic Tradition’s Destiny

Om Namo Naaraayanaaya !!!
Namaste to All.

TL;DR – This website is based on Hinduism. (Honestly, nothing more we can describe in short. :). For detailed descriptions on what this website really deals with, please read on.

When we initially thought to write something about us, we actually got stuck on how well we can present our intentions and ideas properly. The reason is, in whatever simple and straight way we start to describe what we do, like, ours is a website that’s based on Hinduism or, we develop mobile application based on Vedic tradition etc., and in all such descriptions, we always end up giving the first impression, “oh! OK., its just another one in the lot”, and it never gives a second chance to look into the details that really differentiates us from the rest of the sites out there. So, we thought, we will start with a very basic question and in the attempt to answer it, we felt, we will be able to describe better our intention and ideas that’s shared in this site. Though this is not a straightforward approach, still we found it to be the most ideal in our case.

So, that basic question is this: When there are too many websites based on Hinduism or Vedic tradition and related stuffs, why there is a need for another one of the same kind.?. Similar to this, one may find in the preface section of a book like ‘Bhagavad Gita’ English translation, where the author starts with, saying, when there are already many a good English translations available, why are we venturing to do one more of the same kind?. And while answering such a question, the author would state the most prominent features included in his version and missing out in the others, so that the reader may be drawn to buy his book.

We too applied more or less the same pattern in showing the prominent features that differentiates this website from the rest. But we are not here to say that this is the only one that people should be looking for. In fact, for the matured grown intellects, who might look for high standard content in high funda language, that has more familiar technical jargon to make things expressed in brief, rather than the same subject matter explained in a very elaborate manner, for them, this might not be the site they are looking for. Because,

Our foremost intention is to make a genuine attempt in bringing down our “Vedic tradition and its subtle ideas”, in the most simplest form as possible. In the sense, when we look out for information that’s related to this sensitively deep subject, we mostly end up getting access to information that looks somewhat like ‘wiki’ pages and stuffs. Those information are more of like definitions bundled with many technical jargon which not all can easily understand or appreciate it. But this ‘ Hinduism and its aspects ‘, which is the most deepest subject on earth, is in dire need to be presented in the most easily understandable manner together with reading fluidity. This gap is what we intend to solve. Then, for starters, when they happened to get such contents in a very easily comprehensible language, that too with as many common worldly examples and pictures, to relate the tough ideas easily, they doesn’t have to struggle in inferring a lot of complicated ideas. Finally, this easy learning process helps them to progress very fast.

Not only for this reason, But, for whatever matters we search on the web, we generally seek for a simple straight and short answer. The tolerance to read a little more and intuit the logic behind the idea is almost not there for majority of the people out there. Nobody is to be blamed for this as this is how the trend is moving; also its the impact of the age of Kali. But, guess what? Hinduism or the ideas in it is not of that kind. That is, almost in all the case where you look for an answer, there is a very feeble chance that you might get a simple straightforward one, that’s because of the nature of its subtlety.
Now, to give a striking example to explain this idea of subtlety, we take sugar, chocolate, jaggery, milk and honey. All these are sweets. But, If you are to explain the difference in their sweetness in words, is it possible to give a simple straight one word answer? Maybe, at least to the one who had already tasted honey once but have forgotten it, we can possibly make him understand by explaining with some similar tastes. But to the one who have no idea about honey, how will one explain? and with what words?. There, even words doesn’t work.
Such is the case with Hinduism, at every stage in the Hindu philosophical understanding, each individual forms his own interpretations, but only to change it in a future stage when he gets a deeper and refined understanding. So vast and subtle it is, that almost every aspect of it needs an elaborate explanation that doesn’t fit in a simple straight one word answer. Though knowing its subtlety if one forces oneself because of what generally people expect and try to give a brief answer, it would end up in an incomplete answer.

Moreover, the real problem out there when we look for stuffs related to Hinduism and try to get an understanding about a theory like Karma, Dharma, Punya, Paapa and Advaita etc is,

  • We end up getting very high class text books that contains many technical jargon that’s not easily comprehensible, OR,

  • In most case, those texts and the language they use are archaic and not contemporary.

  • But even if it is contemporary, just for the fact that the text should maintain the general standard that the content should be concise and to the point, they don’t get a chance to use liberal explanation with many day to day examples, which would then make the text exhaustive, OR,

  • For the same reason to maintain the standard of the text with the peers, they are limited not to be too dramatic in expression. Being dramatic in the sense that, the use of more words like ifs, buts, because, just, also, suppose, etc. where they are mostly not needed; but when used, conveys more drama that gives an effect of storytelling to kids, that’s in a way people can easily comprehend the ideas better. But with this approach, many a time, the sentences may look more of a broken language and may not appeal to those who mainly look for standard than to understand the actual content. So, this approach is not affordable to many authors as they don’t want people to rate them low because of the seemingly amateurish style of language where its main focus is to make people understand the idea.

So, looking into all these pointers we thought,

if our main intention or idea is to bring the most deep subject in the most simple manner, and slowly stage by stage introduce the technicalities and make it accessible to all class of people, then, it can only be done by explaining exhaustively with many day to day examples, and many pictures to relate the ideas. Also using more ifs, buts, because, just and these kind of words to make it look more dramatic and kind of story telling way; Though it doesn’t fit best in terms of the style of language, it doesn’t matter because, after all, the purpose of any language is to convey the message.

So, to fill this huge gap that’s not done by many due to the stated and justified reasons, we believe and hope that this approach will be helpful to many who seek to understand the age old tradition and its values easily. This is what we have endeavored to do here in this site. The same approach we have applied in bringing some mobile application, where all complications are taken care of with the help of technology and we have taken some serious effort to develop some tool that can help people in their day to day life and follow the age old tradition at ease.

And if you are ready for all such little compromises and eager to know stuffs easily, you are most welcome.

May Lord Shri Krishna, who is the inner controller of all may enlighten us and lead us to the ultimate truth.
Sarvam Krishaarpanam.
