Guide to Agniveer

New to Agniveer site? Don’t worry! This brief guide will help you make the best of your stay here.

With content in Agniveer site having grown several times over past couple of years, even old-time patrons sometimes find it difficult to navigate the site in a focused manner. We do attempt to emphasize the essence of our belief-system in practically all posts on the site. We have also categorized the posts in different Categories and Sub-categories.

However that is not adequate considering the diverse background of our patrons and visitors and wide variety of topics we attempt to cover.

So we present here a rough guide to Agniveer site so as to make your stay even more fruitful and focused. We shall keep amending this page as we put more and more of content and receive feedback from you.

 

Primary Objective:

The primary objective of Agniveer site is to evolve our thinking process towards a rational purposeful humanism. Thus 3 components are important:

  • We do not blindly accept what is not rational and do not hesitate to embrace what is rational. So I shall not believe that someone split the moon or someone else ate up the sun simply because it is written somewhere or thousands of people believe so.
  • We should strive to be purposeful and reject those activities and ideologies which do not serve any purpose. If there are 2 activities, one of which serves a bigger purpose, we favor it against a smaller purpose.
  • We consider entire humanity as our own close family and rise above ego-tussles and hatred. No barriers of race, gender, religion, geography, birth, physical appearance etc should prevent us from considering a human as our own family member.

While there would often be grey areas in implementing these objectives, we strive to be as honest as possible and move ahead. When we stand corrected from our previous standpoint, we embrace the better version of truth without hanging to past due to ego. We act neither as a habitual skeptic nor as a blind believer. We simply act Rational.

These themes would help understand any of our article in the right context.

These 3 themes also make us conclude that Vedas are the best available benchmarks cum workbooks cum textbooks to help us model ourselves. 

So there is a lot of stuff on Vedas including what they are and what they are not.

With this context, we strongly recommend all visitors to read this article first and foremost:

What does Agniveer stand for

Based on this primary objective, we have 5 immediate objectives:

 

1. Destroy Caste System

We consider caste-system to be a disgrace in name of humanity. To know why we consider so, how we plan to eradicate it and other stuff on caste-system, please review:

4. Anti-Terrorism

Terrorism is the greatest nuisance facing the world today. To punish the terrorists after they have conducted the attacks, we have due legal systems, police, military and global bodies. We attempt to thwart the very mindset that later breeds terrorism. We define terrorist as someone who believes that certain people deserve punishment, either through humans or through divine powers, regardless of their good deeds, simply because they do not agree to certain specific beliefs. One example of such a fanatic perpetrator of terrorist ideology is Zakir Naik and his fanatic organization Islamic Research Foundation that refuses to condemn even Osama, and are quick to point out that even a saint will go to Hell simply because he did not invite people to religion of Islam. Many terrorists have admitted having been inspired by this cult.

Such mindsets are thoroughly exposed in following section:

5. Defending Animal Rights

We believe in peaceful environment-friendly anti-poverty living. Hence we proactively take up the cause of Animal Rights. No, don’t worry! We shall not kill you because eat meat. Nor shall we hate you for this. We instead believe in peace and humbly state our viewpoints so that you can join us in the common mission, if that appeals to you.

Suggested roadmap

1. If you come to seek to understand true concepts of Hinduism from a spiritual perspective, straightaway review Vedic Lessons before anything else. Then review rest of the stuff in http://agniveer.com/category/methods/vedas/

2. If you have doubt about existence of God, and even concept of God due to confusion promoted by various cults to market their own brands, please review:

http://agniveer.com/4831/stephen-hawking-afterlife/

http://agniveer.com/465/god-crazy/ 

http://agniveer.com/series/vedic-lessons/

 

3. If you want to quickly review the rebuttals to likes of Zakir Naik and IRF literature, head towards:

http://agniveer.com/category/objectives/zakir-naik/

 

4. If you want to review our comparative analysis of religions, please visit http://satyagni.com.

Satyagni was developed using our original content however the same may have been modified since the transfer. But in any case, we always recommend extracting the essence to extent it is logical and not bother about other petty details. They state that they want to preach true Islam and expose fake cults fooling the world in name of Islam. From their recent articles and discussions, it seems that they support the views of Hassan Nisar, Sir Syed Ahmad, Aga Khan, Parvez Hoodbhoy etc in matters of Islam.

 

For review of Christianity, please visit:

http://satyagni.com/category/christianity/

 

For a detailed rebuttal to myths being propagated by fanatic cults like IRF and Zakir Naik, please review:

http://satyagni.com/category/zakir-naik/

 

This seems to be most comprehensive analysis of their mischievous works.

 

For a more complete view on this fake Islam and its tall claims of Quran being the only option for anyone to escape Hell, review the entire category:

And don’t forget to check the Fatwa Section which is wonderful.

And also the Online Tauba.

PS: Note that Satyagni is not part of Agniveer Network. We refer to it because a lot of content is based originally on Agniveer works which were imported to them. We may not agree with everything on that site.
