RELIGION AND SPIRITUALITY : THE SEARCH FOR UNIVERSALITY

Sanskrit terms like yoga, karma, gurus, mantras, Kundalini and chakras have entered into common parlance and become the basis for many new insights. Hinduism - which has appeared as a contracted religion, in retreat, and perhaps on the verge of self-destruction for the last few centuries - is experiencing a new revival and expanding its influence all over the world. Its related teachings under different garbs - like Vedanta, Yoga, Tantra, and Ayurveda - are one of the main thrusts of the new spirituality.

In its modern renaissance Hinduism has not ceased to be a belief-oriented religion, it never was one. As Sanatana Dharma or the universal tradition, it has always been an open tradition, accepting the best in science and religion, and allowing great freedom in its approach to the spiritual life. A Hindu spirit, a sense of universality, tolerance and non-exclusivism is arising in the minds of people throughout the world. Therefore it is important that we reexamine this spiritual tradition.

Sanatana Dharma, the oldest of the world's religions and perhaps the most dynamic, helps us in this process of universalization because it is a religion that has emphasized spiritual aspiration over the clinging to particular forms. So let us dive deeper into this great legacy in order to discover our greater potential, which is not merely human but Divine.
