Learn about Hinduism and Buddhism

Our blog has a new look and style! But don't worry: among our free books and free classes and other free resources, check out The Secret Knowledge of Yoga and The Logic of Buddhism, both of which have lots of your favorite and new sutras, shastras, puranas, lessons, and the "everything yoga" of our prior "incarnation" you loved.

Good luck, Mr. Sessions

There is something to agree with in Jeff Session's stark complaint.  Every person has the right to determine their own faith and creed according to conscience, including the renunciation of faith.  And because of this, government shouldn't interfere with the religious practices of its citizens by imposing requirements for practices upon any citizen contrary to their religious traditions.

Our City shouldn't conduct activities or adopt or maintain policies to prevent any citizen from participating in official public functions by cause of their religion.  And yet they do, at the beginning of their meetings (and many other times, besides).

All men and women of majority age, without any limitation due to religion, have the right to marry and to found a family - regardless of its adherence to or aberration from one religious belief or practice or another.  And yet, these rights too are limited unnecessarily when we deprive homosexuals and others with un-Christian practices of their freedom.

Everyone has the right of equal access to public service and participation in civil leadership and functions regardless of their religion. Everyone has the right to work, to free choice of employment, to just and favorable conditions of work, and to protection against unemployment by cause of their religion, and its required practices - including religious observances like prayers and holy days. Everyone has the right to purchase property which has been offered for sale to the public, to just, equitable and favorable conditions in public commerce, free of discrimination upon the basis of their religion.  But we frequently and unjustly deprive our fellow citizens of these rights.

In the exercise of their religious rights and freedoms, everyone should be subject only to such limitations necessary for securing due recognition and respect for the rights and freedoms of others.

Good luck, Mr. Sessions.
