Hinduism Doctrine And Way Of Living

THE VEDANTIC ETHIC

THIS IS a very short chapter. Whether the Supreme Being is denominated as Hari or Siva, popular Hinduism does not differ in
respect of the awe, reverence and surrender to the Will of that Supreme Being from the followers of Christianity, Judaism or Islam, or other monotheistic religions. Sophisticated Hinduism also has gravitated from its subtle discussion to this simple monotheistic and what may be called Dwaita approach.

Sri Sankara himself, the great expounder of Adwaitic philosophy has sung devotional songs of superb beauty demonstrating that metaphysical enquiry apart, the Bhakti approach is what he approves and prescribes for all Hindus.

But there is a distinction, which marks Hinduism. It is its reconciliation of monotheism with the polytheistic approach of traditional Hinduism. All the gods and goddesses worshipped by the Hindus are aspects of the Supreme Being governing the Universe and well recognized as such, both by the learned and by the least learned.
