    So this Hindoo curmudgeon complains about RIP but offers nothing in lieu of the phrase? The real bug up his ass is conversions to Christianity, if you read the blog.

    However, you might look at this link.

    Hindu Quotations for Condolence

    And three scripture quotes from the despised Abrahamic faiths.

    Isaiah 43:2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.

    Matthew 5:4 Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.

    2 Corinthians 1:3–4 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.

    You probably missed it, Ewald! He wrote it in the last line. Hindus normally use "Om Shanti Om"--close to saying universal peace.

    Also, in the funeral procession most people use -"Ram nam satya hai", which is close to accepting death as a reality.

    Same for me. But you can read Atanu's blog for some economics as well...It is very close to Friedman style economics.

    Well the same goes for the usage of the word "Insh'allah" by Hindus as some fasionable term.

    I did not think about that!! This gives another reason to hate the movie now other than the pathetic role played by Roshan!

    RIP doesn't have any connotation for a majority of the people other than to show their grief and bereavement. Any religious connotation or christian propaganda is a CT :tinfoil3:

    Just like saying OMG doesn't mean one believes in God, esp the Abrahamic concept of God and that Jesus is the Son of God etc.

    Ram Nam Satya hai (Ram's name is the truth) is used during funeral procession but it could mean either that this whole world is an illusion, and only Ram's Name is the truth rather then accepting death as a reality or even finality, but then I digress.

    People use the term bhagwan unki atma ko shanti dey ( May God grant the deceased soul peace) to express grief.

    A lot of North Indians use terms like Mashallah or Subhanallah. Its part of North Indian lexicon. Although Lahaul Wilaquwat etc. terms are falling out of fashion.

    You fool, its a very esoteric title. Those who practice ZNMD are striving for Moksha. You won't get it.

    Notice that "Karma is a bitch" is also a fashionable term. So Hindus will happily gulp down terms which have been re-exported.

    Ofcourse its not Christian propaganda. Its simply globalization

    Hindus don't give much thought when such terms are said. Heck, even terms like "Jeez/Jesus" are becoming common :lol:

    Indian civilization will be confined to the history books in the future

    :dude: I'm pretty sure the movie didn't hint at Satchitananda with Brahman. (I didn't watch the movie though)

    That is exactly the point author tried to make in his article.

    He just argues that one should be thoughtful in the choice of words. Anyway.

    Bhagwan devangat ki aatma ko shanti de. Isn't it commonly used? English translation may his soul get peace shortened to Rest in Peace??

    "Rest In Peace" or "Bhagwan uski Atma ko Shanti de"

    Now who is going to explain the similarity? :hmm:
