back later to answer your question Stephan -- I'm off to some holiday merriment with my offspring..

in the meantime -- just remember that Hinduism isn't a monolithic religion -- it spans centuries of amalgamating different regional beliefs and customs -- and even though it has 'Ten thousand Gods' it is still monotheistic at the same time

LR,

yeah, but what I was referring to is the monism of Hindu belief ... it doesn't really matter how many "gods" are worshipped.  

There are only a hanful of dogma-like beliefs in Hindu/ Buddhist tradition ... I say "dogma-like" because they don't claim to have dogma, but they really do.  

They are ...

Metaphysical Monism
Karma
Transmigration of the soul.


My original question was about the distinction between good and evil, or even life and death, when their metaphysical monism seems water tight.  


Merry Christmas!

Stephen.
