APPENDICES

1.The Great Refuge By Ram Swarup
  1. I offer my obeisance to Sanatana Dharma of the Vedas and the Upanishads, the Puranas, the Epics and the many Agamas.
  2. I take refuge in this Dharma which has been nourished from generation to generation by great sages and teachers.
  3. I take refuge in Sanatana Dharma, whose precepts and practices are pure, which is auspicious in the beginning, auspicious in the middle, and auspicious in the end; who roots are deep, whose fruits are sweet.
  4. I take refuge in Sanatana Dharma whose teaching is pure, whose desires, aspirations and works are pure.
  5. I pay my obeisance to Sanatana Dharma which gives us a vision of a higher life, great and immortal life, a life renewed by a higher truth, a life which goes beyond its present limitations.
  6. May I be a sharer in its Truth! May I be a worthy sharer in its heritage! May it be given to me to serve this Dharma with all my heart and mind.
  7. God grant me that I make its truths my own. Make me a participant in its Truth. May I become worthy of it. Expand and deepen me. Take the veil off from Thy face and Thy inner Truth.
  8. I pay my obeisance to Sanatana Dharma that teaches the oneness of human beings and Gods, the oneness of all life. May I be one with the Gods! May I be one with our ancestors! May I be one with those who have gone before me! May I be one with those who have yet to come. May I serve those who are immediately around me, and also those who are hidden from my sight. May I serve all beings on all planes of existence!
  9. I pay obeisance to Sanatana Dharma which has the power to heal and reconcile, power to awaken and to reform. May this Dharma restore my people and my country! May it bless all humanity and all beings! May all be auspicious toward each other.
  10. Sanatana Dharma protects those who protect it. Therefore protect and serve it in order to deserve and claim its protection.
  11. Sanatana Dharma is as wide and profound as its subject. Like its Gods, it has a thousand names and facts, but only some of them have been indicated here.
