A couple of years ago I had invited my best friend Jenene to attend an Indian wedding I thought it might be fun for her to experience the different foods clothing personalities and religious beliefs that were particular to my culture Later on that evening she had pulled me to the side and told me that the culture that she was raised in was completely different from mine She was raised in New York all of her life and she had never experienced such a distinct culture At that time I told her that she did not know half the story As time went on she attended more and more Indian functions and realized that the main differences between the western and Indian cultures were religion marriage and social interaction The western culture is predominantly of the Christian faith praying to one God Growing up in the Hindu faith I always wondered why my mother used to pray to many Gods As I became older I built up the courage to ask a Pandit Indian Priest why we believed in many Gods whereas all the others believed only in one He had informed me that we only believe in one God Lord Shiva It may appear that we are praying to many Gods but in fact we are praying to the many forms that he appeared to us on earth The Hindu and the Christian religious beliefs are predominantly very similar in that they teach individuals to be good and giving people The main difference between the two religions is our belief in the after-life Christians believe that after we die we wait to be judged Judgement Day and until that time your soul remains in an everlasting sleep purgatory After Judgement Day Christians believe that they answer for the wrongs that they committed upon the earth This determines whether they go to Heaven or Hell Hindus believe in reincarnation which is life
