This line is from Rigveda 2.12.7, where the speaker is expressing reverence and worship for Indra, and acknowledging that Indra lives on through the worship and offerings made to him. The context of this line is within the Vedic tradition, where Indra is one of the prominent deities and is often praised and worshipped in hymns and rituals.
It is not entirely accurate to say that Hinduism teaches only the worship of Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva, as there are many other deities worshipped in various Hindu traditions. However, it is true that Indra is a prominent deity in the Vedas, and his worship is not as prominent in modern Hinduism as it was in ancient Vedic religion. The development of Hinduism as a religion is complex and multifaceted, and it would be inaccurate to reduce it to just the worship of three deities.
Kali is a Hindu goddess, associated with death and destruction, and is widely worshiped in Hinduism. However, Kali is not specifically mentioned in the Vedas, but she is prominent in later Hindu traditions and texts.
To clarify, Kali is a goddess who is revered in Hinduism, particularly in the Shakta tradition. However, Kali is not mentioned in the Vedas, which are the oldest scriptures of Hinduism. The worship of Kali emerged much later in Hindu history.
It is not entirely accurate to say that Hinduism and Buddhism arrived at the same time and split from Vedic traditions. Hinduism is a broad term that encompasses a variety of religious beliefs and practices that have evolved over time, and the term “Hinduism” itself only came into common use much later. The Vedic traditions are considered the oldest religious traditions in India, and they were eventually followed by the development of other traditions such as Jainism, Buddhism, and various sects of Hinduism. Buddhism originated in the 6th century BCE, while Jainism dates back even further to the 8th or 9th century BCE. So, while there is some overlap between these traditions and the Vedic traditions, they also have distinct differences and histories.
Yes, that’s correct. Hinduism and Buddhism both emerged after the composition of the Vedas, which are considered the oldest sacred texts of Hinduism. While Hinduism developed as a diverse set of religious and cultural practices, Buddhism emerged as a distinct religion with its own set of teachings and practices. Both religions drew upon some of the concepts and practices of the Vedic tradition, but also developed their own unique beliefs and practices.
Yes, that’s correct. The Vedas are the oldest scriptures of Hinduism and predate the emergence of Buddhism. The Vedic period is estimated to have lasted from around 1500 BCE to 500 BCE, while Buddhism emerged in the 6th century BCE.
Yes, that is correct. Hinduism and Buddhism developed after the Vedas, and although they have borrowed some elements from the Vedic tradition, they are distinct religious traditions with their own unique beliefs and practices.

I understand. The Order of Vedic Householders is a community that practices Vedic traditions and rituals, but it is not necessarily associated with Hinduism. It is a distinct spiritual tradition with its own practices and beliefs that may differ from those of Hinduism.
It’s true that Indra and Agni are two of the prominent Vedic deities that are worshipped in the Vedic tradition. However, it’s important to note that the Vedic tradition is not limited to the worship of just these two deities. The Vedas contain hymns and prayers to a multitude of deities, including Varuna, Surya, Rudra, and others.
Furthermore, the Vedic tradition is not limited to just the worship of deities. It encompasses a broad range of practices and teachings, including meditation, yoga, ayurveda, astrology, and more. The Vedic Order of Householders may focus on specific aspects of the Vedic tradition, but it is still part of the broader Vedic tradition.

To clarify, the Vedas are ancient sacred texts of Hinduism, which contains various deities and practices that are still worshiped and followed today. The Vedas predate modern Hinduism and Buddhism, and it is believed to have influenced the development of both religions. Indra is one of the many deities mentioned in the Vedas and is often associated with thunder and war.
However, it is also important to note that interpretations and beliefs about the Vedas and its deities may vary among different individuals and groups within the larger Hindu community.

Yes, that’s a good analogy. Just like how there are different denominations within Christianity, there are different schools of thought and practices within the broader umbrella of Hinduism and Vedic traditions. And just like how there can be extremists or more conservative factions within a religion, there can be differing levels of intensity in the practices and beliefs of various groups within Hinduism and Vedic traditions. It’s important to recognize and respect the diversity within religious traditions and not make assumptions based on one’s own limited understanding.
Yes, Hanuman and Ganesha are two popular deities worshipped in Hinduism, which evolved from the Vedic tradition.
