So much about God and Hindu beliefs concerning Him...

Hindu Books > Introduction and References > Hinduism Through Questions And Answers > So much about God and Hindu beliefs concerning Him...

Question 17. So much about God and Hindu beliefs concerning Him. Coming to man as a subject, what has Hinduism to say about the nature of man and the purpose of his life?

Though this question appears to be short and simple, it concerns a very profound subject discussed in our philosophical works.

According to the Upanishads, which have been accepted as supreme authority by all sections, of Hinduism, man is essentially the Atman. This Atman is uncreated and eternal. It is beyond birth, growth, decay or death, which are changes that pertain only to the body. This Atman is of the nature of Consciousness (cit) and Bliss (ananda).
