I had a discussion with my friend that Indian (Hindu) culture is restricted, or one should obey their elders, respect them, and do what elders want not what that individual wants. I was like this is not Indian(Hindu) culture this is pure dogmatic thinking.
I want suggestion/opinion on what a Hindu life mean. My thoughts on this topic is, If you are atheist then you have "karma" to serve, if you theism then you have "dharma" to serve. If you believe in dharma then you, if you believe in karma then nature is there for you.
I am in search of that what does actually Indian (specifically Hinduism) is.
