Hindu Individual Practice in Summary

Hindu practices, in general, involve seeking awareness of God (A Higher Power) and also seeking blessings from Devas (Demi-Gods), Guru’s, Saints and Priests. Therefore, Hinduism has developed many practices meant to help the individual to think of divinity in everyday life.

Hindus may engage in Puja (worship or veneration to a deity), either at home or in a temple. Hindus have a shrine (Mandir / Temple) at home which contains icons dedicated to their chosen forms of God’s and generally assigned to a primary deity, along with associated saints and gurus and gives the prayer the inner tranquility and oneness of fellowship with the god.

“Visiting temples is a good practice to find solitude and inner-self with the almighty”.

The temple is highly spiritual building due to consent recitation of Holy Scriptures and offerings of the venerations. Therefore, visiting a temple or any place of pilgrimage can bring the spirituality within a person for better daily transition in life.   

Hindus perform their worship through icons known as murti (statue of deity) a tangible link between the worshiper and the God.

The image is often considered as a manifestation of God since God is immanent. The Padma Puran (Hindu Bible Number 12): Describes Cosmology, the world and nature of life from the perspective of Lord Vishnu). States that a Murti is not a mere stone or wood, but as a manifest form of the Divinity.

Here are some of the key points to remember:

Truth is eternal, Brahman is Truth and Reality, The Vedas are the ultimate authority,

Everyone should strive to achieve dharma: (duty, virtue, morality and religion and it refers to the power which upholds the universe and society in harmony.
