I learnt how unimaginably vast Hindu scripture is. I disagree with a lot of it - but the vastness of whats out there is hard to comprehend.
When I joined this site I was having some technical queries/doubts and I mistook this site as a panel of experts who are capable of answering such queries.
But I did not take much time to realize that that was not the case.
So, to be very frank, so far, I have not learned anything NEW from this site ... By NEW I mean something spectacularly new about the religion which I consider worthy of knowing or which I am interested in knowing or which has changed my way of thinking with regards to religious/spiritual matters ..
But I really like the question-answer discussions/sessions that we have here .. And this is without doubt the best site of it's kind.
I have learnt from this site
a) How much learned can some individuals be b) How much intelligent can some individuals be c) How much dedicated can some individuals be d) How much hard working can some individuals be 5)How inquisitive some individuals can be 6) How much kind can some individuals be.
I have really been very very enriched within few days visiting this wonderful site.
Unfortunately I also learnt
a) how shamfully dogmatic can some individuals be b) how foolish can few individuals be (like explaining our scriptures without basic knowledge of sanskrit c) how much full of cruelty and hatred very few individuals can be because of religion.
Above all this site has made it more clear to me:
"No one becomes wise by reading many books, only learning the two and half letters प्रेम (Love of God) alone makes a man wise. (kabir).
"learning of too much scriptures is useless. One has to attain devotion to God. Vultures fly high gazing at the filthy things (Sri Ramakrishna)
"The knowledge of the pundits is for Bhukti, not for Mukti" (Sri Adi Sankaracharyya)
May I always remember the three above sayings is my heart's prayer to God.
My sincere regards to all.
