HINDUISM
Archaeological evidence shows early Indian visits to Perlis in the 5th or 6th century. Tamil sources attest to the close relationship between Kedah and the Chola Kingdom of South India.
Religious monuments in Bujang valley, Kedah, dating to the 7th century have been discovered.
Sir Poyyatha Vinayagar Moorthi Temple on Jalan Hang Jebat, Melaka, built in 1781, is said to be the oldest working Hindu temple in Malaysia.
Indian merchants in the early centuries brought the people of the west coast into contact not only with Buddhism but also Hinduism. However, much of Hindu worship and practice was imported through large scale migration of Indians in the 19th century, many of whom were of South Indian descent.
The temple is an essential component of the Hindu practice of worship. Salvation, one of the basic beliefs of Hindus, means the state of freedom from reincarnation and union with the Almighty.
Although a matter for debate, Hindu influence on the local culture (e.g. wayang kulit), language and political concept is rather apparent.

PRAY

1. Praise God for
a. His love for the people.
b. The harmonious relationship among all religious groups in the country.
c. The Tamil-speaking churches.
2. Cultural barriers, superstitions and traditions that may prevent the people from being receptive to the Gospel to be broken down.
3. Against the spiritual forces behind all spiritual deceptions (Eph 6:12).
4. Hearts and minds to be enlightened to see the TRUTH.
