Now for conversion....sometimes changes are required...like a kid does not approve his name...may change it, Does not like home town so changes place of residence for study/job etc. Change is part of life. Yet few things are with us by default. Yes when we are born, we are just a living being happen to be a part of a family. Now that family is our identity...as we cannot choose our parents, same way we cannot choose our identity. The culture that we see in our family is the tradition to be followed.
Although people are seen who may change their parents even...may be circumstances...If I am starving with my family, may be I will praise your God to just get some money...who knows as Khali peth bhajan na hott Gopala (Empty stomach, you cannot say prayers)
But for me Conversion is a nono...child is brought up some values and belief since birth and if he cannot hold on to them,,,goes to convert himself to another region because some one brain stromed him...then that person is a big time looser.
Loha ji, aap to hamarey chahney waalon mein se ho. Aap ko to pyaar se maarengey!
Calling someone who chooses to change his/her religion of his/her own free will a loser is a tad harsh, me thinks. It's like both my parents are doctors, so was my grandfather and so are my siblings; but I'd rather be a teacher. Namakool, nalayak, khandaan ke naam per dhabba, maa baap ki izzat mitti mein mila di, naak kata di
Also, aren't we brainwashed by our families, the people around us, our friends etc to follow a particular set of religious beliefs??? Apna apna nazariya hai
The world would be a nicer place if people focussed on whether the kids are good human beings, not on which religion they want to follow, if they want to follow one in the first place!
See, that didn't hurt, did it???
PHewwww...what a relief
Pyar ki marr to hamesha kabool hai
Sorry Gauri..as usual i jumped to comclusion...aadat se majboor...waisse I just noticed, my status is groupie now...so congo shongo to me
SJB..agree that we get brainwashed to some extent but no matter what we decide, family will assisit you. I also broke my parents heart by not going for medical and opting for eng. But they still supported and paid for my education. Where as conversion gets you money only if you accept it. If a religion is so great over others, why should it bribe you.???? Let everyone have insight. Buddhism was spread all over china although started in India (Nepal) But it was via monks. See as per history all religion did have a start point and were gradually accepted. Who knows what religion our forfathers had. During Aurangzeb ruling a huge population moved towards south and extreme Borth from central part, but now they all have their own culture. Adaptation is widely accepted, but changing it on some one's saying is wrong.
Tp preach of your religion is ok as everyone believes in their God, but to declare one is superior then other and proving it via bribing is wrong.
I am a follower of Sanathan Dharma, but how can I decide that My Lord Shiva is superior that Lord Jesus. Since we are cultivated wiht our religion so we consider it the best. If I have to prove that mine is superior then there should not be any compensation. One should prove it and selling your belief and religion, not a good idea. God is GOd. Not a commodity for sale :-)
I hope this time I got the debate topic right
......so as per me, even though missionary are not threatning you, yet they do play with your emotions and belief....so STAY AWAY from them...remember the God is our belief. Ultimate teaching of God is to respect all living creature and respect each other.
