General questions about Hinduism
I have practiced yoga for many years and have read much about Hinduism
but am still confused about certain things. I have heard that one cannot
convert to Hinduism but must be born a Hindu: is this true for all Hindu
I am also curious about the definition of Hindu sins. For instance, are
homosexuality, sex outside of marriage and cussing considered to be sins?
Also, where did the concept of the sacred cow originate? Is it in one of
the holy books?
I have heard that not all Hindus are vegeterarians and am curious about
any other information about Hindu dietary laws.
As you might have realized, I am considering converting to Hinduism
officially but don't even know if that is possible.
Thanks in advance for any information about any of these subjects.
