To create the universe the Rigveda says Brahma separates into male and female, God of heaven and Goddess of earth. It is easy to see why God of heaven is favored by religions today, but a person will only reach the heavenly state by honoring the Goddess on earth.
Any religion favoring the male as the dominate figure is wrong, and there are many religions on the earth today that have fallen into that trap. Since Brahma separates into both, they are equal, and that is the way to behave.
If you see inequality of the sexes in your religion, consider abandoning.
If you see discrimination due to gender, color of skin, sexual preference, ancestry, and so on, really, get out. Yes, it is basic… equality is religion 101 and a must for any claiming a divine connection.
If you do not hear about kindness for all living beings, yes, compassion for every living creature upon the earth the religion is not preaching the Holy Path. If you do not hear that heaven is attained by service to heaven upon the earth or that the heavenly state is attained here, you are not hearing the Sacred Knowledge contained within the very pages of your Holy Book. You are not hearing the knowledge promoted by all of the ancient spiritual texts of the world, and composed in Sanskrit, Avestan, Arabic, Hebrew, Aramaic, Pali, and so on.
If you follow the current teachings of Hinayana and Mahayana Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity, Islam, Jainism, Zoroastrianism, Mithraism, Judaism, or any other religion you are probably not getting very critical parts of the Sacred Message. Even by Buddhist’s own reckoning, not one person following the Buddhist Doctrine has attained Buddhahood in two-thousand five hundred years. Not one person following the teaching of Hinduism has attained Moksha, liberation from worldly existence, and proved it by attaining a body of light. Not one person following the teaching of Christianity has attained the heavenly state in the afterlife, not one.
I suggest stopping and getting out, but it depends upon your interest in religion and spirituality. You can travel the road with interest in many religions and get by, but you will find at the end that they lead to rebirth upon the earth and not necessarily human. Actually, you won’t remember that but if you are interested in attaining liberation from suffering, Moksha, Buddhahood, Western Paradise, Heaven, and so on, then you need to get on the Path to Good Fortune. Live with the good parts of your religion like going towards others for helping but get rid of the rest.
It would be nice if there were many ways to heaven but Brahma and the Rishis only speak of one. The following words are from the Rigveda, spoken by Rishi Kanva Ghaura, Founder of the Veda School. The School has a long history since Rishi Kanva was the celebrated Rishi of Tretayuga. The Third Age of the world ended about 3,000 BC, around the same time the Indus Valley Civilization in Northwestern India is said to have been at its height. Here is a verse for enjoying the day with Brahma.
“A man in Brahma and a woman in Brahma and a light for comparison.”
For good measure, here is another.
“A name of Buddha is difficult but to come from virtue and to go beyond.”
