by Paul L. Cox, Aslan's Place

Heavenly Father, I ask you to forgive me and all members of my ancestral line for all beliefs in Hinduism and its philosophies and all practices of Hinduism including idolatry, knowledge obtained from illegal sources, practices of sorcery, witchcraft and sacrifices.

I ask you to forgive me and all my members of my ancestral line for the practices of temple worship, rituals, festivals, pilgrimages and temple prostitution.

Forgive me for the sin of stubbornness which is as idolatry and the sin of rebellion which is as witchcraft.

I repent for and renounce the ultimate goal of Hinduism – that of moksha or deliverance from the endless cycle of rebirth, that the soul can be released from the wheel of life by the observation of dharma – doing one’s duty according to one’s position in life.

I repent for and renounce the Hindu belief that the aim of existence is to fulfill one’s assigned duty and moral obligation to society to attain jnana or higher religious knowledge and bhakthi or union with God through devotion.

Forgive me for practice of the four main denominations of Hinduism –Saivism and the worship of the false deity Siva, Shaktism and the worship of the false deity Shakti, Vaishnavism and the worship of the false deity Vishnu and Smartism or the worship of one of the six deities Ganapati, Surya, Vishnu, Siva, Shakti and Kumara.

I repent for and renounce the practices of Bhakti or devotion to God and the Gods of Hinduism so that the atman or individual soul or spirit can merge with Brahman or universal consciousness and allow the realization of moksha.

Forgive me for the illegal knowledge of and false understanding of esoteric interworkings of the three worlds of existence.

I repent for and renounce all false beliefs that the First World is the physical universe; the Second World is the subtle astral or mental plane of existence in which the devas, angels and spirits live; and the Third World is the spiritual universe of the Mahadevas, "great shining beings," - the Hindu Gods.
