With over 330 million gods worshipped over Hinduism’s evolution in the past 5,000 years on the Indian sub-continent, Josh Schrei of HP considers this religion the only “open-source” religion.
At the heart of the Indic source code are the Vedas, which immediately establish the primacy of inquiry in Indic thought. In theÂ Rig Veda, the oldest of all Hindu texts (and possibly the oldest of all spiritual texts on the planet), God, orÂ Prajapati, is summarized as one big mysterious question and we the people are basically invited to answer it.
“Who really knows?
Who will here proclaim it?
Whence was it produced?
Whence is this creation?
The gods came afterwards, with the creation of this universe.
Who then knows whence it has arisen?”
On the God Project:
In Indic thought, there is no trade secret. The foundation of yoga is that the key to god, or the macrocosm, or the absolute … lies within the individual and can be accessed through a certain set of practices. It’s a beautifully simple but ultimately profound concept that has been allowed to flourish unchecked for millennia. The process of discovering and re-imagining the divine is in your hands.
