Hindupedia is an online encyclopedia for Hinduism. The mission of Hindupedia is to educate the public about the Hindu tradition, including it’s history, philosophy and current events. There is also information on arts and sciences, including Ayurveda and holy symbols. The major pillar of hindu philosophy is Vedanta, which emphasizes the importance of transcending limiting beliefs about one’s identity and recognizing one’s connection to the creator.
My meditation teacher, Baba Muktananda, always emphasized the importance of Svadhyaya, scriptural study, as a compliment to one’s practice of meditation. Hindupedia is a great place to discover pathways of study in your pursuit of meditation, as many of the meditation principles and techniques have their roots in Hinduism.
