    That even though it's common they most likely know not much useful or accurate about it.

    That I'm the enemy of cruel monsters. I just finished watching a video about cruelty being good for people. And it claims that humans are cruel monsters, and it advocated being a cruel monster before it's too late, and that everyone is capable of horrible things. Some guy named Jordan Peterson. My religion is dead set against cruelty. And I absolutely loathe what he taught.

    That Hinduism is vast, and incredibly diverse, and that it's not at all like western faiths.

    People are free to interpret religious belief and practice in any way that makes sense to them. We each have our own journey, though we don't have to walk it alone. That's the purpose of organised religion I think, to allow people to come together and develop their faith collectively.

    I can’t prove the existence of my God to you; I have a personal relationship with my creator, that works for me; I think we are all free to develop such a relationship, or not. Whatever works. And I sometimes wish non believers would understand that.
