SANATANA DHARMA AND RELIGIONS OF THE WORLD

Pagan Religions

The pagan religions of Greece and Rome, and those of the ancient Celts, Germans, Slavs and Baltic peoples (Lithuanians and Latvians) have much in common with the Hindu, particularly through their similar Indo-European languages and cultures. The ancient Greek culture has many affinities with that of ancient India. Both had temple worship of Gods and Goddesses, many with common names or characteristics, had elaborate mythological systems, deep philosophical traditions and a love of astrology.

Much of this older European religion can be better understood through looking at Hinduism. A study of Hinduism - wherein these traditions are still alive - can aid in the restoration of this older European tradition in which many of the keys of Western mysticism, Goddess worship, spiritual art, philosophy and science lay hidden and ready to return.

This same worship of Gods and Goddesses, temples, magic and mysticism can be found among the Egyptians and Babylonians. In this regard Hinduism as the most ancient of living religions can help us understand and perhaps even recreate other ancient traditions like those of Greece, Egypt and Babylonia.
