    Obedience

    Hello all!

    I was wondering if you could help me other scriptures that identify the importance of being obedient to diety. I have found this selection:

    "it is your duty of all of you to obey mydictate"Vishnu Purana Chapter 8

    In your opinion, does this accurately teach obedience? What scriptures would you add that also teach this topic?

    Re: Obedience

    Vannakkam, and welcome to this forum.

    I don't think 'obedience to deity' as a concept is very strong in much of Hinduism. Certainly not like it is in some other faiths. We're more about common sense, trying as hard as we can according to yamas and niyamas. Course I could be wrong. I don't know of any scripture that really focusses on it. Devotees of particular gurus will practice obedience to directions from the guru, but that's because they understand that the guru is wiser than they are. So its like obeying your parents. It's still not 'blind'.
