If I decide to follow Hinduism as a way of life, what exactly would I have to do, strictly according to the Vedanta philosophy?
I want to know what ancient Hindu scriptures say regarding this, not the personal preference/opinion of anyone who answers this question.
What I mean is, is there a certain set of rules I should follow (e.g., abstaining from meat, practising Yoga, meditation, etc.)? Also, could someone suggest some books/scriptures I can read to get a better idea about what the "Vedic way of life" actually is? Let me make it clear that I am NOT referring to Hinduism as a religion, but as a way of life, so I don't expect answers like worship a particular deity (e.g., Shiva), or perform a particular ritual (e.g., some xyz Puja).
PS: I have already started reading a reputed translation of the Bhagavad Gita.
