Verses in the Hindu Scriptures that could enlighten a non-Hindu

The Vedas, the holy book of the Hindus, give a material as well as a mystical perspective of life. Vedas are also called śruti (“what is heard”) literature, distinguishing them from other religious texts, which are called smṛti (“what is remembered”)

To make our material life as comfortable as possible the Vedas give –

RIGVEDA– the oldest of the four Vedas upon which the others are based.

AYURVEDA – The art of living a long, happy and healthy life.

JYOTIRVEDA – Also known as Jyotish this branch deals with the knowledge of the future as well as of the past.

DHANURVEDA – the art of military science.

And for those who want the mystical aspect the Vedas give Ramayana, Mahabharata, and Puranas.

Truth can not be suppressed and always is the ultimate victor

– Yajur Veda

You must learn to endure fleeting things they come and go

– Bhagavad-gita 2:14

Life and death, joy and sorrow, gain and loss; These dualities cannot be avoided. Learn to accept what you cannot change

– The Ramayana(book 2)

Do not be led by others, awaken your own mind, amass your own experience,
and decide for yourself your own path.

– Atharva Veda

One should perform karma with nonchalance without expecting the benefits because sooner of later one shall definitely get the fruits.

One should strongly resent miserliness and indulge in charity because one can acquire the never-ending wealth of immortality by doing so.

– Rig Veda

Who really knows? Who can here proclaim it? Whence, whence this creation sprang?
Gods came later, after the creation of this universe.

Who then knows whence it has arisen? Whether God’s will created it, or whether He was mute;Only He who is its overseer in highest heaven knows,He only knows, or perhaps He does not know.

– Rig Veda 

It is said that the soul is invisible, inconceivable, immutable, and unchangeable. Knowing this, you should not grieve for the body. If, however, you think that the soul is perpetually born and always dies, still you have no reason to lament, O mighty-armed.

-Chapter 2, Bhagavad gita


U cant worship Rudra without u being rudra, this means that u gotta be so clean by mind heart and word, this can also say the atheistic view of god.People who say god doesn’t exist can be himself as a god.

Bodhayana Prayukta (Mahanyasa).


No one can push a boulder away while standing on it; you cannot be free from anxiety while all the entrances through which it sneaks in are open.

Atharvana Veda

Ultimately, Hindu Dharma is about happiness. If you can find eternal happiness doing something, you are on the right path.
