Serving Two Masters
by: Jerald Archer

As I understand that you may be culturally be tied to Hinduism, it is a contradiction (and a blasphemy, as well) to practice both Christianity and Hinduism (or any other non-Christian religion) at the same time. Our God is a jealous God who requires that one serve Him Alone and no other gods. One cannot serve two masters, for either they will love the one, and hate the other. It can be a difficult choice, but one that is very important for the eternal salvation of your soul. The Catholic Church is the safest and most secure way to get the guidance one needs to obtain eternal salvation, through Jesus Christ.

For the prayers of the Rosary to really be effective, one would have to be fully in agreement with all that it is offering and what it is teaching---I urge you to consider embracing Catholicism entirely and be assured that God understands every thought and desire in your heart in this very important decision in your life.

If you are confused as to the prayers of the Rosary, the continued practice of Hinduism will only, and can only, increase this confusion. The first step is to see a priest and be baptized into the Church. God will take care of all the rest if you only ask Him for guidance. God Bless You.

I am a Hindu but still I don't take part in the offerings and don't do pujas.

I consider Jesus as my best friend, is that enough?

Somewhere I heard that "I am Jesus, my eastern part is buddha and krishna"

Why not?

Dear Chayan, By all means, if you like to pray the rosary, pray it. Pray to God from your heart and trust that God will lead you wherever God wants you to go. If you find some of the prayers confusing, as you mentioned, there are books available, as well as information available in this site and others, that will explain them in more depth for you. Blessings to you.

I agree with Pat M. I think what's important is you're praying it with reverence. If you feel peaceful and happy by doing so, then no questions have to be raised. :)

Yes you can!

I am a Hindu and have been praying the Rosary for a decade now.

Have confidence that the Blessed Virgin will enlighten you through Her Rosary. Do not listen to humans. Let God and His Mother guide you.

There were times when people said bad things about my former Hindu faith and that sort of repelled me from Christianity for a while but then Mary enlightened me about Her Son and she didn’t do it like humans did. It was easier to comprehend the truth about God than what humanly wisdom would have done.

I believe in the Catholic faith now although am not yet baptized.

Mary is the Mother of entire redeemed humanity not just Christians. Anyone who comes to her, she leads to her Son!

Fourth Rosary Promise
The rosary will make virtue and good works flourish, and will obtain for souls the most abundant divine mercies. It will draw the hearts of men from the love of the world and its vanities, and will lift them to the desire of eternal things. Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means.
