Hinduism : The Eternal Tradition, Sanatana Dharma

[an error occurred while processing this directive]
The goal is to reach the infinite and eternal. But we must do this from our particular standpoint in time and space, body and mind. Our individuality is embedded in a  certain cultural matrix and its forms, just as the language that we learn to speak shapes our thoughts. To reach the universal we must have  the right organic foundation at   local level. We need to create a culture that can lead us to it, by  helping us discovering our cosmic potentials at an individual level. This is what Hindu Dharma provides in  many different ways.

The spiritual life is an eonic journey, taking many lifetimes and leading  us through many different worlds. Very few souls, only   handful in each generation, will complete their journey in a particularly incarnation. Spiritual growth requires the proper  culture and tradition to sustain our collective aspiration from life to life. Otherwise a few rare individuals  may be able to progress spiritually but the great majority cannot go far, just as only a few of the many  seeds cast on uncultivated ground can flourish.
