Hindu Universe Guidelines

The purpose of the Hindu Universe user id, free web site program, free email and many others is to give people the ability to use these free services and create web sites and personal pages with the Hindu theme on the World Wide Web.

Hindunet is committed to providing a forum for diverse points of view. After all, the vedas proclaim "Ekam Sata Vipraha Bahudha Vadanti" or "Truth is One but the wise see it in Different Ways". We have established the guidelines and terms of service that follow to help our members achieve a true sense of community. If you disagree with some of the opinions expressed by a member of our community, we encourage you to create your own free Personal Home Page and make your own views known. To us, this exchange of ideas is the definition of community. We appreciate your interest in and support of Hindunet.
