HINDUISM AND SANATANA DHARMA

Truth, knowledge, infinite Brahman - He who knows That hidden in the supreme ether of the heart attains all desires.
Taittiriya Upanishad II.1

Bliss is the supreme reality. From bliss all beings are born, by bliss they live, into bliss they return.
Taittiriya Upanishad III.6

Surrender is powerful. In surrender I take refuge. Surrender upholds Heaven and Earth. Surrender to the Gods, surrender is their ruler. Through surrender even great sins we have committed are removed.
Rig Veda VI.51.8

Hinduism and Sanatana Dharma

Close to a billion of the over five billion people in the world are Hindus by religion. India with its vast river system and subtropical climate has always contained a relatively large proportion of the human population. The Hindu religion has been going on for more than five thousand years, long before the other world religions came into being. In this respect perhaps more people have been Hindus through the course of history than have belonged to any other religion.

All of us, during the course of our many births, have been Hindus during one life or another, particularly those of us who have had lives on the spiritual path, which has generally been a greater concern in India than in other countries. The Hindu Dharma is therefore ingrained within our samskaras, the deeper impressions of our souls which we can all access if we look within.
