0:28 you talk a little bit about your
0:29 religion when you’re growing up what
0:31 your parents taught you or what the
0:32 community taught you how you felt about
0:34 God or the gods or Hinduism yes I born
0:39 in Hinduism my parents my grandparents
0:43 maybe four grandparents also they are on
0:47 the same Hinduism practice the
0:49 practicing and we migrated here in 1991
0:52 and we stablish this accommodation in
0:55 1992 and from there we are very actively
0:59 very very actively participate
1:02 participating in our religion in Cuba
1:04 especially in the moonship and basically
1:07 this organization is open open for
1:09 everybody we have so many students from
1:15 different universities different
1:17 qualities different schools in different
1:19 reason of cubic and Montreal they are
1:21 regularly visiting our Center out of
1:24 this temple and our priest they are
1:27 trying their best to describe about our
1:30 hinges and what is ISM teach you so
1:35 really it’s nowadays this is a landmark
1:38 place you can say in material
1:42 we always welcome other religions people
1:47 also and there is no bar there is no bar
1:49 in this ordination in our temple we were
1:53 practicing any religion they always
1:56 welcome and we always got something so
1:58 was your family one particular sort of
2:01 Hinduism or are all Hinduism’s equal for
2:05 us our our philosophies taught us that
2:07 all Hinduism are equal but they have
2:10 different names name in the sense i mean
2:13 like i read on the poster upstairs that
2:15 there’s a certain branch of hinduism
2:17 with these gods in a certain branches
2:19 with these guys right no he leaves them
2:21 it’s a very vast to religion very much
2:23 religion and you know what we believe
2:26 that probably you know some lakhs of
2:31 techies God is and gods are very
2:37 existing in our oldish in our religion
2:39 but we don’t have that much but
2:41 principally when you come in our temple
2:43 we have some specials deities of God and
2:47 what is this those are the main main
2:49 main principles God and what isn’t and
2:52 we worship them because we believe in
2:55 in practice in and pray in those deities
3:00 now there’s a there’s a rumor going
3:03 around that Hinduism worships one God
3:06 like like in the monotheistic religion
3:10 is it polytheistic no no we don’t know
3:15 we don’t believe in one God but there
3:17 are several board and vortices and we
3:20 believe on this because i read upstairs
3:22 that this goddess is an aspect of the
3:25 other goddess exactly so there if I if I
3:28 meet you and I see that you’re generous
3:29 right that’s one aspect and if I meet
3:32 you and I see you’re intelligent that’s
3:33 another aspect xxo those are like day
3:35 five years they become like we we focus
3:38 on one part of her exam for exam Lord
3:41 Rama with our main board and for example
3:48 if we want if we want to worship of the
3:51 wealth
3:53 well then we must we believe that we
3:56 should pray to Goddess Lakshmi for
4:00 example we want get better in education
4:04 so we believe that we must pray what is
4:07 Saraswathi when we are looking more for
4:13 the power we must pay what is Durga so
4:18 these are the when we are talking about
4:20 the you know main sharp when we think
4:26 that our our kid should have sharp brain
4:29 for his education of our education or
4:33 for his or her future life so we believe
4:36 that we must pray god Ganesha ok now I’m
4:40 Catholic and we have Saints so there are
4:45 patron saints there’s the patron saint
4:46 of education or health of everything I
4:50 name it there’s so many signs and I see
4:53 a similarity there you’re right yes
4:56 sense we have we do in we do have some
4:59 very popular since and those really
5:02 existed like sai baba see if i was like
5:06 like they were existing 200 or 250 or
5:10 300 years ago they existed in this holy
5:14 mass volume and yes and
5:16 due to their work due to their
5:19 principles and due to their blessings we
5:22 still pray them like a god and is there
5:25 a difference between a saint and a god
5:28 or all the gods Saints know that walked
5:30 on the earth ain’t show you the path to
5:33 get blessing of God okay he will even
5:37 right you will the lower God’s show you
5:39 how to get to the higher guards no there
5:42 is no such type of category exists in in
5:46 Hinduism definitely if you believe in
5:49 once and so st. principles sense
5:54 objectives will guide you how to get how
5:57 to get closer to the god is he he
6:00 basically he will be your spiritual
6:03 leader if I’m if I’m close to one Saint
6:06 and he brings me close to one particular
6:08 God better that’s just as good as if i
6:10 was with another saint and another
6:12 goddamn thing it’s just in my path
6:14 exactly it’s depend on you which bad you
6:17 want to choose okay based on your spirit
6:20 definite so God gives humans a special
6:25 characteristic or a special taste I like
6:29 tomato you like potato it’s just a
6:33 question of different essay explaining
6:36 earlier also that when we are talking
6:39 about
6:40 different gods but we believe in hughson
6:43 believe that the creator of this world
6:48 is the one oh ok that’s what I believe
6:52 creature of this goal is world is one is
6:55 one name was nameless no matter you
7:00 believe in Hinduism or you believe in
7:02 Islam or you believe in Christianity but
7:05 what we believe our new ISM taught us
7:08 that you must realize that God is one
7:16 regardless you believe in other religion
7:19 also but your aim should one and this is
7:24 the basic principle of individual now
7:28 when when I was created by God I was
7:31 created out of nothing that’s what my
7:33 Church teaches that I didn’t exist
7:36 before but I i think i understand that
7:39 in hinduism your spirit can go into
7:41 different lifetimes is that true no but
7:44 but yes a reincarnation dissected a
7:48 reincarnation but so far you know this
7:50 is the believe what we believe what we
7:54 believe okay but nowadays if you believe
7:57 you if you if you follow the other
7:58 religions sometime opinions they may
8:02 declare me different it’s not it’s not
8:05 essential to Hinduism that you believe
8:07 in reincarnation yes we believe
8:08 independent shocking but I don’t have to
8:11 do this appeal but what if we are
8:14 talking about the Hinduism yeah then
8:17 definitely injuries them believe in
8:19 taken oh sure
8:20 is there any possibility that this is
8:22 your first incarnation or not it’s
8:26 difficult to judge that it’s difficult
8:29 to judge that but I don’t know how far
8:32 is correct but in India yes sometime is
8:37 proven okay yes sometimes proven is it
8:40 better is your first incarnation somehow
8:41 better than your millionth incarnation
8:44 is depend is depend how you are living
8:49 in your present life okay so you could
8:53 have a bad first in Connecticut and a
8:55 wonderful thousandth international
8:56 district you’re going to correct as you
8:59 go exactly but he’s always depend on
9:01 your present life what is the worst life
9:05 where we go in the wrong direction every
9:07 every incarnation going the wrong way
9:08 that’s correct what do you end up in
9:11 hell like in my religion you can end up
9:13 in hell forever do you have this yes we
9:16 believe also we believe also so if you
9:19 don’t correct yourself you’re going to
9:20 keep going down exactly that’s why
9:22 that’s why that’s why it says whatever
9:25 you have present life try to do better
9:27 and better for your society for your
9:30 life for your family for your country
9:32 and for this world is not safe so there
9:36 is also a heaven if you keep going up
9:38 and up and up there and the Saints are
9:41 the saints in heaven sort of speaker
9:44 since basically you know you can
9:48 consider them as a guru teacher teacher
9:51 what did they escape out of my
9:53 reincarnation yesterday desert and it’s
9:55 very important in this materialized
9:57 world that you must have one guide you
10:01 must have won that one guru or one
10:03 teacher who can guide you in correct
10:07 path to get to achieve your goal
10:10 ultimately what a human being worn a
10:14 peaceful life happiness happiness
10:17 peaceful life and I think you’re your
10:20 teacher your guide your guru can drive
10:23 you to get that goal to achieve that
10:26 goal in your life and this is a very
10:29 strong philosophy of Hinduism now have
10:33 you ever as Hinduism ever tried to
10:38 take Jesus Christ into their into their
10:42 Saints among or saints no we do have
10:45 actually if you if you recently lastly
10:49 in fact now we are in 2017 in 2016
10:53 mother Teresa recognized by Vatican as a
10:57 saint and she was I believe the first
10:59 lady who achieved this honor you can say
11:04 Julie a Catholic site that’s correct no
11:07 no mini okay yeah from india i believe
11:11 is cos i don’t think so no I don’t know
11:14 from india i really i don’t think so no
11:16 no I’m sure I can find many many from
11:19 India I think so okay maybe I’m wrong
11:21 maybe i’ma check I’ll change definitely
11:23 yeah but you know when mother tears I
11:28 was working as a charity of home in
11:30 kolkata in india
11:34 she was a really sent and she did really
11:39 well fair work for our society and at
11:45 that time she never look that this
11:48 person belongs to Hinduism or this
11:50 person belongs to his lamb or this
11:52 person belongs to Christianity know so
11:54 that’s why we also recognize her as a
11:59 saint as a mother okay thanks you know I
12:03 have I have I have full I fully respect
12:07 for her and she did a wonderful job in
12:11 this world and still have charity of
12:14 mission is working wonderful jobs in
12:16 India why why are so many atheists today
12:19 talking against Mother Teresa in
12:21 particular they talk against her
12:22 christopher hitchens is a famous atheist
12:25 who is dead not only against her y know
12:28 that she liked money no no no no no no
12:30 no no I really no it’s not that it’s not
12:35 that we have to accept that fanaticism
12:39 he’s always there okay you know was
12:42 there no matter you believe in Hinduism
12:45 or the slam or Christianity fanaticism
12:47 you got me there and the same fanaticism
12:50 is in Hindu as well what happened in
12:53 India and it’s a 2 is a real fact that
12:58 there are so many Christian missionaries
13:02 working in remote part of and towards
13:07 section of the society in remote areas
13:09 in India and they try to change the
13:14 religion of the poor people by offering
13:18 them good life good education good
13:22 service social service and sometime you
13:25 can say money also and this type of
13:28 things you know
13:30 Hinduism never allow you to do a rhythm
13:35 is not allowed to do that so if somebody
13:38 is doing try to do that basically then
13:41 people will think you know then why why
13:44 these poor people are attracting by the
13:47 Christianity or by the Christian
13:49 missionaries in rural areas especially
13:51 so there are so many reasons behind it
13:56 too earnest is number one factor less
14:00 education in the society is the second
14:02 factor and lack of work unemployment
14:06 those are the main regions but Mother
14:10 Teresa as long as charity of missions is
14:12 concerned she never did life she only
14:16 loved people exactly and whoever is
14:18 blaming now I think they’re far away
14:20 from reality or they don’t know you know
14:25 they don’t know about the react or maybe
14:27 they hate love possibly is it possible
14:31 sively yes that would be a rare form of
14:33 mental illness acne this way that’s why
14:35 I told you that if an item is always
14:37 even an atheistic if another yes oh ok
14:40 do you know any atheist in the Hindu
14:43 community or no no your your tradition
14:46 is very strong a very strong video I
14:49 believe if you consider Hinduism I think
14:53 is one of the largest one of the oldest
14:56 religion in desert what is the
14:58 connection between family Family Values
15:02 and your religion can you talk about
15:04 that yes family we believe our family
15:07 values is a very good questions as long
15:09 as in dsm is concerned is give you a
15:13 very great value of the United family we
15:16 believe in United Family people even big
15:18 family big families and United for
15:21 example if we are fro brothers in India
15:25 still joint family system is exist what
15:29 is that means let’s say father and
15:32 mother and they have four children four
15:36 brothers so you will found so many
15:40 families that four products are living
15:42 in one roof do you mean that the four
15:45 brothers marry the four sisters like
15:46 that no no no no poor mother of four
15:48 brothers Mary with four different girls
15:50 okay okay but generally they live
15:54 together okay oh maybe you say it’s a
15:56 family of 40 or 45 or 50 people k okay
16:00 that’s what we believe in united family
16:03 in a big house or a small house beat
16:04 house is you know house is a not a
16:07 criteria but normally when we are living
16:11 in the one roof whatever obviously that
16:13 house will be baked but here matter is
16:16 matter is not household or house there
16:19 is a big the important is principles
16:23 because if your father believes that no
16:27 my force and we’ll live together
16:30 means this is a final point okay it’s a
16:33 final points and there are so many
16:35 benefits so many advantages if you live
16:38 together if you get there are so many
16:42 advantages so many benefits and not only
16:47 they’re your responsibility will be less
16:51 okay you share you share your
16:54 responsibilities your family
16:55 responsibility not only family
16:57 responsibilities you are sharing your
16:58 family’s responsibility your community
17:01 responsibilities you’re earning
17:04 responsibilities okay is there a strict
17:07 monogamy one man one woman they don’t
17:10 they don’t they don’t tell you no no no
17:14 we believe in single marriage that’s it
17:16 yeah how do you believe we believe in
17:18 single night it’s the Hindu tradition
17:20 since a descrip that since a long one
17:22 let’s see for example for unfortunate
17:24 incidents happened there or husband or
17:26 wife died for some reason or they become
17:29 separated for some reasons that’s
17:33 different yeah different but as long as
17:36 we want to be merry with one girl I mean
17:39 that’s it is this forever you don’t know
17:42 how to verse normally not okay but
17:45 circumstances if circumstances compelled
17:48 you to do that then it’s a different
17:49 thing and there is a legal way to do
17:51 that okay now I want to talk a little
17:53 bit about feminism because very popular
17:55 today and there’s a maybe a good
17:58 feminism but there’s a bad feminism to
18:00 extreme feminism I want to get your
18:03 perspective a Hindu perspective on the
18:06 difference between man and woman are
18:07 they different and what are the roles of
18:09 men over here yeah this is very
18:11 important to clarify
18:14 basically we we believe equal ism our
18:18 Indu religion taught us about dick ilysm
18:21 there is no there is no comparatively
18:24 there is no rights of comparison between
18:27 men and women but if i go to my word if
18:29 i go to my mother or i go to my father
18:31 who am i going to listen to fight in the
18:33 last word if they disagree no you it
18:36 that could be your choice oh that will
18:38 be your choice if you if you realize
18:41 that your father is guiding you in the
18:43 right path ok and your mother is guiding
18:46 you not in right but so choice will be
18:48 yours true you can and yeah and you can
18:50 choose your yacht but with the
18:54 consulting with them and you can explain
18:55 them why mother’s right is not in favor
18:59 of you favor for a favorable for you and
19:02 why your dad’s advice is favorable for
19:05 you so the head of the family is the one
19:07 who’s right who’s profession who exactly
19:09 but nowadays you know in society
19:14 if although if we are talking all over
19:16 in the world now what is talking about
19:17 the more standardization for the women
19:20 no matter in which religion and we think
19:24 I think so this is the correct procedure
19:27 this is a correct we are correct move in
19:31 in good society to make a good society
19:34 was I I know that worldwide there’s been
19:36 an exploitation of women throughout
19:38 history of me and we need to correct
19:40 that but so but this is not a big issue
19:44 in Hinduism things over here and no i
19:46 will not one hundred percent say that in
19:49 Hinduism everything is right still still
19:54 the Hindu society is dominant by men
19:59 professionally professionally no no no
20:01 no professionally by education nowadays
20:04 in the Newman Indian girls are you know
20:07 far ahead in education ok you know so
20:10 it’s not that but now society is getting
20:13 changing you know all society is getting
20:15 changing and now people are talking
20:17 about and now people are working on this
20:18 direction let us make women more about
20:23 now that’s awful there’s a perception in
20:26 the west of India and certain places in
20:28 the East that there’s a caste system the
20:30 upper class middle class lower many cast
20:32 yes yes can you talk a little bit about
20:34 that the good stuff and the bad stuff
20:35 actually wherever if you are talking
20:38 about the cast ISM if you ask my
20:40 personal opinion it’s not good no it’s
20:44 not the fast ISM is not good
20:46 you know we all are equal no matter in
20:50 which family you born okay but he say
20:55 you know we all are equal and there
20:57 should not be bar of the cost when we
20:59 believe in the same religion why there
21:01 will be a cost basic principle of
21:04 religion we both are agree on that and
21:06 we both have following on that so why
21:09 there is a cost difference not really
21:14 money money is not really but but but
21:16 it’s a social system you know it’s a
21:18 social system which is coming forward
21:20 from so many decades is it changing in
21:23 India now yes in some part yes now in
21:27 some part yes but still lots of work
21:31 should be done in this school who would
21:34 be resisting this change would it be the
21:36 upper classes yeah normally yes
21:38 especially in the villages upper class
21:41 no matter there in few numbers but but
21:45 they dominate the society they have the
21:47 opportunity they control the means of
21:49 introduction s not like that
21:51 so there’s another comparison I know you
21:56 don’t like comparing things but I’m a
21:58 Western mind and you’re an Eastern mind
22:01 how do people of the East View the sort
22:05 of rational Western philosophical
22:08 journal yes know if you if you if you if
22:11 you follow the recent rains the Western
22:15 world is emphasized by Indian society
22:18 here the Western world is look for look
22:23 towards India okay about their about
22:27 their diversity of the culture about the
22:29 diversity of the religion and definitely
22:32 there are so many things who can attract
22:37 you from west to India
22:40 for example I have for you simple yeah
22:43 widget ain’t fist okay number two you
22:46 can consider as a Yoga Yoga Yoga is
22:50 worldwide now you know basically clear
22:52 yoga is created in India okay this to
22:55 all the spiritual gurus of the yoga’s
22:57 they belongs to India okay so these are
23:01 certain things who can make a you can
23:05 say i can say India can make a copyright
23:07 on that nowadays in this materialistic
23:12 world he’s become a profession is
23:15 becoming way to generate the money but
23:20 basically if you go in remote areas in
23:23 in hilly areas where the yoga’s Saints
23:27 are coming from where the yoga ashram
23:28 shore there believe me you will found a
23:31 different different fillings
23:35 then then you realize that oh I mean I
23:39 am living in the Western world but this
23:41 world is completely different in the Sun
23:43 we can’t reproduce it here no no there
23:45 are so many awesomes they’re respectable
23:48 here for you guys oh yes are some of
23:52 them considered a little bit like a joke
23:54 because they don’t capture the eastern
23:55 no this is yeah you can consider as a
23:57 joke but once you entered in this
24:00 philosophy then only you will realize
24:02 that is in order to even if it doesn’t
24:05 look the same inside the philosophy is
24:07 going to be there that’s right then
24:09 lastly definitely you will you will feel
24:11 it the way of thinking exactly you’re
24:13 completely your way of thinking will
24:15 change is the eastern way of thinking
24:17 more mystical and more do you understand
24:23 what I mean basically Hinduism believe
24:26 in the simplicity ok we don’t believe is
24:30 in luxurious luxurious in a long believe
24:33 that its austerity or asceticism that’s
24:36 correct but don’t get attached to stuff
24:39 no no it’s not that it’s not that what
24:41 I’m trying to say that our religion
24:44 taught us that make as simple as your
24:48 life
24:50 and try to if you have more wealth if
24:56 you are wealthy person try to share your
24:58 wealth with poor and needy people who
25:01 really need it and try to make your life
25:03 simple and try to share your belongings
25:07 today with them so if you have oh that
25:09 so that they can also bring happiness in
25:12 their life through you through your
25:14 efforts so if you have three coats and
25:15 he has no coat you give him one court if
25:18 you can give one it’s not a required to
25:21 normal you don’t require three hey so I
25:25 I just do us to want to press you on
25:27 this east/west divide how do people in
25:30 the West in the East Sea generally see
25:33 the philosophies and religions of the
25:35 West do you see them as very rigid or
25:40 known as the no no we don’t go but you
25:44 understand there’s a difference right
25:46 definitely differ difference but my
25:49 religion into this region is gives me
25:52 his advise me no matter the religion is
25:55 complicated or not but you must respect
25:58 it you must respect them also in the
26:01 East you see the Westers may be more
26:02 complicated no no no matter because you
26:05 know we came from east we are in West
26:07 yeah but there is no way that i
26:10 disregard your religion no no I respect
26:13 your religion of course I will respect
26:15 your religion
26:16 and I respect your religion by day
26:18 there’s a certain there’s a certain
26:20 difference which i find difficult to
26:22 articulate and I’m wondering if if how
26:27 you see it in the east for example when
26:31 you look at Christianity what do you see
26:33 as I explained earlier during this
26:37 interview for us Christianity is same
26:42 like my religion okay maybe you see the
26:46 love of mother teresa and you say that’s
26:48 Christianity that’s what you see yes not
26:50 only that we you know we we believe in
26:53 the principle of Jesus we believe that
26:55 because if you go through in the
26:57 Hinduism principles in the same lessons
27:02 is much much much very much similar with
27:06 the Christ so for me this am respecting
27:13 the Christ and my hand reason is on the
27:16 same way
27:17 because I’m honoring I am honoring my
27:19 religions principles and same time I am
27:22 leaving your Christianity religion this
27:25 for also so for me for me we both have
27:29 the same i think is it Mahatma Gandhi
27:32 who said that he is a Muslim and
27:34 Christian and a Jew and a Hindu and it I
27:36 think that he said something like that
27:38 that he sees the truth in all the
27:40 village that this is basic basically him
27:43 this is the pillar of the hidden ISM
27:45 what Gandhi Ellen was Gandhi a good
27:48 hindu man he wasn’t in doing his own
27:52 thing he was like you he was Hindu
27:53 that’s right ok that’s it and that’s
27:56 what he he added so many things and we
28:00 followed their principal before / thurs
28:02 means well and that’s why we believe
28:05 that all religions are the same and we
28:07 must respect we must respect
28:10 we cannot we shouldn’t criticize slam
28:13 for this reason we shouldn’t criticize
28:17 both ism for certain reasons know if you
28:21 if you don’t agree with that so whether
28:24 you keep quiet no I’m sure I’m sure that
28:29 everybody don’t agree with each and
28:31 every things if you are not agree with
28:33 that better we keep quiet but don’t
28:35 criticize but Gandhi was a lawyer he
28:38 must have known how to find the truth or
28:40 Gandhi was a different personality and
28:42 that’s why you know we put we salute his
28:46 efforts to get a freedom from british
28:49 empire but he’s not a saint after know
28:52 till today you know we respect hyundai
28:54 accent ok ok the way the way he show
29:01 this world that you can get freedom
29:04 without any violence yeah and india did
29:08 that no and history itself he says he
29:12 says a witness the whole world have a
29:16 witness that yes you can get a freedom
29:18 without anyone is speaking of violence
29:22 you are vegetarian is all right
29:25 personally I am NOT but ok but Hinduism
29:28 believes they believe in the way a
29:29 vegetarian it’s optional of course it’s
29:33 optional yes ok nobody forced wound
29:36 would you eat cow no why is cow special
29:40 for you because how is we believe that
29:42 cow is our mother
29:44 when when you bond and sometime you know
29:48 for some reason let’s say you’re
29:51 mother your own mother cannot feed you
29:55 at that time house will be free ok so
30:02 when cows make free to a child they say
30:06 it’s a second mother for ok ok right ok
30:10 so how can you keep your mother haha
30:12 yeah yeah we believe in their philosophy
30:16 is that the general explanation for why
30:19 the cow is sacred no no this is this is
30:22 only that’s the only reason only reason
30:24 that’s why we believe cow as a mother
30:26 okay and she’s little and simplicity
30:28 this way we can put that you cannot kill
30:31 your mother on any circumstances so it’s
30:35 not don’t kill King you cannot eat yeah
30:39 yeah I read upstairs that the monkey is
30:43 also a sacred animals at true yes yeah
30:45 yeah please leave him we believe monkey
30:47 they’re the same okay yeah
30:50 and the elephant or not elephant also
30:53 and are there many other animals that
30:55 are not so hard these are them common
30:58 okay animals we play them so what are
31:05 demons for you dimension demons because
31:08 i was reading upstairs some of the
31:10 oculata fighting against in ok Minson
31:14 using a pied-à-terre yes do this they
31:20 are also let’s say let’s put this way
31:22 that they are also human beings but but
31:26 doing their activities in bad manner oh
31:30 ok so we shouldn’t free them no we just
31:35 ignore them
31:37 we just ignore them we shouldn’t follow
31:40 their policies or their pets no too
31:45 dangerous if you listen to them that’s
31:47 right okay are their stories of the good
31:52 versus evil in your holy books yeah what
31:55 are the names of the holy books is there
31:58 are plenty but mainly like bhagwat gita
32:01 kept from ana Vedas
32:06 I know there’s a famous story of Arjuna
32:09 yeah this belongs to my water Geeta okay
32:12 mom other than diva so do these stories
32:15 are do this story are these stories
32:17 meant to be taken very literally or in a
32:19 poetic way or yes even port agree okay
32:24 and the God’s you worship are they meant
32:27 to be seen and also in a poetic away yes
32:29 okay okay so what is the difference
32:34 between a god of wisdom and just
32:37 focusing your your intentions on the
32:41 principle of wisdom there’s an abstract
32:44 Atlanta is no difference okay there’s no
32:46 difference in these two things basically
32:49 it’s depend on your wisdom and just you
