Hindu Flags
One of the most familiar sights in our country’s religious landscape is the jhandi or the bamboo pole carrying flags of different colors often bearing the pictures of Hindu deities.

The presence of these jhandis has also been a source of conflict, especially when, during the Divali celebrations, they are erected in public spaces. jhandis are normally planted after the performance of a puja (Hindu rituals). Among the familiar jhandis are the red flags for Hanuman, the black for Sanichar, the blue for Shiva, the white for Saraswati, and the yellow for Lord Krishna.

My grandfather, the late Pundit Rambachan, once told me that the jhandi also pointed out to weary Hindu travelers Hindu homes where they would be welcomed and where they would be able to get food, water, and rest; this of course during the period when long distances were traveled on foot. Today jhandis may not serve the same social purpose but it does continue to indicate the Hindu presence. It makes a statement of cultural and religious identity.

These can be rather abstract so it can entail some learning to generalize the learning and understand that it's all grounded on a simple set of logic. But when you then get the simple logic, you can now use that simple logic to observe undeniably any part of life, any activity or drive or way that something happens, and describe it in terms of what the metaphysics says about it, which will be the truth. Irrefutable truth. Provided your grasp of the metaphysics is clear and consistent and you're not making subtle logical errors, the metaphysics gives you vision to be able to see the truth of what's happening or where things fit together.
    For instance, lately there have been debates about whether you can be at harmony with death. There were many opinions given. None of the opinions were relevant. The one fact is in what the metaphysics declares. In the metaphysical fact, the body is a device of separation, it is a deception, and it is within the mind of Christ. It blocks and hides what is behind it and its only function and purpose is to maintain the illusion of the mind being separate. The metaphysics also tells us that Spirituality
