  1. Hey Sal!
    I was wondering if you could do a video focusing on the Tamil Sangam and that period of Hindu literature and such (especially since that encompasses the shaivite and vaishnavite split). Thank you!!!

  2. Considering the Indo-European relationship between Sanskrit and the Germanic tongues, I wonder if the word "Edda" has the same root as "Veda"? Thank you for making these videos about Hinduism available, I've found them very interesting.

  3. Off topic question. I thought Sal was Muslim. For a guy who mispronounces names a fair number of times he doesn't SEEM to struggle with these. Was I misinformed in this fact?

  4. Hi, can you do a video on the ISS, Why is there no footage of the ISS being built? Humans greatest accomplishment, but not one video?!!!!

  5. From what I was told the Gita was present before the Mahabharata, but when Krishna spoke it to Arjun it became a more revered scripture.

  6. It used to be just the Rigveda, but then Ved Vyas split them into 4 different Veds making it easy for the average person to understand.

  7. It is believed by many that the knowledge in the Veda was imported by God to the sapt rishis who later imparted it to other Rishi and etc who eventually​ wrote the knowledge in a book form

  8. Sorry if it looks like spam, could u please do how the Hanuman Chalisa tells the distance between Sun and Earth

  9. yoga means Union that is if you sit and can experience the whole existence within yourself then you are in yoga


  11. The Jedi in the Lotus: Star Wars and the Hindu Tradition by Steven J. Rosen:
    The Jedi in the Lotus is the first-ever examination of the Star Wars universe from a Hindu perspective, illuminating many hitherto undiscovered aspects of the background and meaning of the widely acclaimed film series. We are shown how its creators were influenced by the famed mythologist, Joseph Campbell, whose reading of the ancient Indian Epics, the Ramayana and Mahabharata, can be seen throughout the Star Wars films. This book also demonstrates how the metaphysical understanding of the Jedi Knights and the divinity conceived of as 'the Force' have resonances with teachings passed down by Hindu gurus and mystics for centuries, and how fantastic worlds and technology similar to that of the Star Wars universe were described in myths that are millennia old – and may even have had some basis in reality. Finally, The Jedi in the Lotus shows us how the Hindu traditions at the basis of Star Wars offer an alternative vision to the purely materialistic, soulless world of modernity. Steven J. Rosen (Satyaraja Dasa) is an initiated disciple of His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. He is also founding editor of the Journal of Vaishnava Studies and associate editor of Back to Godhead. He has published twenty-one books in numerous languages, including the recent Essential Hinduism (Rowman & Littlefield, 2008); The Yoga of Kirtan: Conversations on the Sacred Art of Chanting (FOLK Books, 2008); and Krishna's Other Song: A New Look at the Uddhava Gita (Praeger-Greenwood, 2010). 'In conclusion, I can only say that The Jedi in the Lotus is a breakthrough book when it comes to understanding the mythic depth of the Star Wars epics. Steven J. Rosen uses his masterful grasp of the Eastern traditions to explain the secrets of the most successful film series ever. This book also shows us why Joseph Campbell loved the wisdom tales from India, and, for those who found the Star Wars adventures memorable, this is a truly illuminating book.' – Dr. Jonathan Young, from the Foreword

  12. Hey Sal!
    I couldn't help but notice that 'Shruti' appears to be the term for two things: 'What is heard from the divine' and 'note' in indian classical music. Why is this the case?

  13. Karna nd arjun no match not even comparison karna is lot!! Lot Stronger than Arjun if lord Krishna is not on Arjun's side there is no way he can survive against karna not even for 5 min

  14. Sorry but the meaning of upanishads is not as simplistic as seating near the teacher. Since other vedic knowledges are transmited from a master to a disciple this give no relevance to the word upanishads. As described by René Guenon, the meaning here is actualy to emphasise that the upanishads contains the teachings that bring you the closest to the absolute, but given the very metaphysical «nature» of that absolute no teacher can give you its knowledge, this has to be an individual quest from there on to the knowledge.

  15. Before deciding anything about India & Indian culture be aware of these points (in short i mentioned few only) :
    4 Yugas (different stages of age) :
    1). SATHYAYUGA = 400000 Year
    2). TETHRAYUGA = 4 x Sathyayuga Years
    3). DWAPARAYUGA = 4 x Tethrayuga
    4). KALIYUGA = 4 x Dwaparayuga
    "Ramayana" epic was happened first (Tethrayuga)
    "Mahabharata" epic was happened after this in Dwaparayuga.
    BHAGAVAD GEETHA = Holy book
    4 Vedas (Veda = Knowledge), Sacred & Holy books
    1). RUKVEDA
    2). SAMAVEDA
    4 Types Castes / Peoples :
    1). KSHATRIYA (warrior).
    2). BRAHMANA (Priest, holy man)
    3). VAISHYAS (Traders)
    4). SHUDRAS (Agriculturalist)
    Different clans :
    Hindus (who believe in hinduism)
    Mlechas (Westerners)
    Yavana (Muslims and religion peoples).
    It is true that we are very bad in documentation but we transferring knowledge by mouth to mouth from many millennium.

  16. There is no image of him. He is unborned and He should be worshipped" (Yajurveda, Chapter 32, Verse 3) 

    "god is bodyless and pure" (Yajurveda, Chapter 40, Verse 8) 

    "They are entering darkness, those who worship the natural things(like air, water, fire etc.), they are sinking more in darkness who worship created things." (Yajurveda, Chapter 40, Verse 9) 

    🙏These words are not from quran nor bible this are from vedas🙏

  17. Great Lecture, Khan on Hinduism, or Sanatana Dharma! Mahabharata has over 100,000 verses and the longest written poem. Bhagavad Gita, or the Song of God has approx. 700 verses, probably the Topmost Trustworthy Dialogue, or Q & A between Mankind (Arjuna), and God (Krishna, or Avatar / Incarnation of God)… Yoga simple means, Union with the Individual Consciousness and the Supreme Consciousness thru studying vedic holy books, listening, meditation, mantras (prayers), chanting, bhajans (singing or glorifying God names, incarnations, relationships, activities, sharing, energies, forms, etc.) All glories, victories and successes to Bhagavan Shree Krishna… Sita-Rama Ki-jai, jai, jai

  18. why did he say " probably older than 3000 yrs??
    more like there ATLEAST 8000 yr.old. and probably older than 10,000 yr. that's more precise.

  19. Not praise God but the One Infinite Creator….
    When we will evolve we will be gods one day going to other planets to show the knowledge of the universe… To give them information on who they are and where do they come from…
