Hinduism : The Eternal Tradition, Sanatana Dharma

[an error occurred while processing this directive]
Hindus are inclined to accept anything that calls itself calls itself religion, particularly if it is also mystical. They would like to believe that all mystical states are valid and that all religions are true. This exposes them to manipulation by groups who use a religious or mystical appearance to promote their own agendas that may be anti-Hindu in nature. It is also contrary to their tradition.

The Hindu Yoga tradition is well aware of the fact there are many different states of altered consciousness or mysticism. Not all of these are true, much less wholesome. There are various types of mysticism from what is little more than black magic to the highest Self-realization, and even experiences of Self-realization can be partial or mixed with lesser states. The Yoga tradition relates that even Asuras, beings of great pride and ambition, take to Yoga practices to gain greater powers to further their aim of world domination.

Religion, on one hand, has certainly been the greatest help for humanity in our eternal quest of Self- realization. Yet, on the other hand, it has also caused the greatest harm, inciting every sort of crime justified by the name of God. Religion can be not only the means of eradicating our human ego and its intractable biases, it can become the last and greatest attachment for the ego and the place in which our deepest prejudices can hide. Superstitions and hatreds can rest unquestioned in religion, particularly when they are attributed to God or his will.
