Hinduism is the second largest religion in the US states of Arizona and Delaware, according to a data from Association of Statisticians of American Religious Bodies.
Distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, congratulated the Hindu community for their successes in USA. In USA, according to reports, Hindus were the most educated religious group, had second highest income levels and lowest divorce rate.
Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, commended the Hindu community in America for continuing with the traditional values of hard work, higher morals, stress on education, sanctity of marriage, etc.
Rajan Zed advised Hindus to stay pure, explore the vast wisdom of scriptures, make spirituality more attractive to youth and children, stay away from the greed, and always keep God in your life.
Zed further said that it was important to pass on Hindu spirituality, concepts and traditions to coming generations amidst so many distractions in the consumerist society and hoped that families would make efforts in this direction. Zed stressed that instead of running after materialism; we should focus on inner search and realization of Self and work towards achieving moksh (liberation), which was the goal of Hinduism.
Hinduism, oldest and third largest religion of the world, has about one billion adherents. There are about three million Hindus in USA.
