    Convertion process by a quickly done ritual

    Namaste

    I just came across this (part of a) travel report

    At the beginning of our trip we learned that unfortunately one does not easily come into all the temples. We were very disappointed but then heard of a possibility: You can get a ‚Hindu certificate‘ in some modern Hindu movements and thus get into all the temples. Of course, this includes a formal ritual and a brief questioning. The Hindu reform movement Arja Samaj has a branch in the city of Kozhikode, where we arranged an appointment for our convertion process. The ritual was done quickly: a fire ceremony with repetition of the Gayatri mantra. At the end, we had our Hindu certificate in hand and felt just like before. The certificate has actually proved very usefel, we had come into all the temples.

    I can only shake my head … sure to be Hindu, Moslem or Christian are only categories. Anyhow to convert for me is a sacred act. Converting is not a process, not buying a ticket for entering another religion or a temple.

    Am I oldfashioned?

    Pranam
