We have heard many people say ‘my Hindu religion is gold when compared to other religions’. Comparing religion in general, and Hindu religion in particular, with gold and pronouncing religion is natural, gold is the ultimate supreme, and it is better than silver is fallacious. For one thing, religion is natural only in that it resides only inside the mind of man. Once it comes out, influences others, and forms itself into establishments, it is no more natural. Then it ceases to be natural. Then it is man-made. For another, gold and silver have their specific uses, purposes and applications which depend much on their chemical properties and physical properties.

If it is their monetary value people denote when compare them to religion, then their argument goes completely un-religious and un-Hinduistic because religious and Hinduistic values do not base themselves on monetary values. Also remember that gold is not the ultimate supreme in stability, hardness, malleability and worthiness- that credit goes to platinum. And also remember that there are many costlier and supreme elements in this universe which are unbelievably rarer. The main feature of scientific Hinduism is it does not fall for micro analyses and bird’s eye views but keeps macro analyses and worm’s eye views on matters concerning man, society, and nature.
