Hindu Religion & Culture -2.

Spirituality is the foundation of Sanatana Dharma belief. While it’s expression is communicated through Sanskrit language. Analysis of the relationship of the soul with nature and Brahman while reflection of the past and future events of life, comprise, spiritual texts of the religious scriptures of sanatana Dharma belief. Brahman is God, and all humans, are souls, which are part of Him. In other words God is super energy (parmatma) and souls (Atma) is energy. Parmatma represents super conscious while atma in humans can be seen in the form of one’s conscious. This means that God or the energy or the conscious, exists in all living beings. According to Indian culture, it is said that he who sees himself in all beings, is a wise man. It is this part of “Brahma’ in each person that draws them close, to each other & motivates them to help a suffering human. The word “Dharma” is derived from the Sanskrit root ‘धृत’, which means “to hold”. In the Atharva Veda, In the Prithvi Sukta, the earth is said to be ‘Dharman Dhrita or held by Dharma. In the same era, the word Dharma has also begun to be used for expressing religious belief.

“संस् + कृत = संस् + धृत = संस्कार धारण करने वाला The word धर्म evolved from धृत which means संस्कार धारण करने वाला”

Manu, had considered religion as the basis of social structure. He has stated it’s ten characteristics: Patience, Forgiveness, Restraint, Stealth, Purity, Restraint of the senses, Intelligence, knowledge, truth and Anger. All these qualities has been the basis of a hindu life. Religion is therefore regulating force of public welfare and public dignity. The goal of human life is the attainment of the four classes of Dharma i.e Artha, Kama and Moksha. If desires are fulfilled by earning wealth according to Dharma, the result is automatically attainment of salvation. If a man earns to fulfill his desires, by unrighteousness, then he will not attain the ultimate goal of salvation and he will not be able to get freedom from the cycle of birth and old age for eternity. That’s why in hindu culture, it is considered necessary to earn money, through fair means. Acquisition of wealth should be done in a just manner. If this truth is inculcated in the mind of every person of the society, then not only the person will be saved. But all the problems of robbery, violence, sorrow and poverty will be eradicated from the society. The basis of an ideal society is therefore religion i.e Sans-dhrit i.e to hold sanskar. A society that is moderate in religion and spirituality, shall always prosper. While unhappy society & unrighteous, society shall create suicidal tendencies among people. According to sage Markandeya, there is nothing wrong in accumulating wealth for materialistic pleasures; but when there is some disaster in a nation, the accumulated wealth should be donated for the welfare of the people & nation, to come out from that disaster. There is an unbreakable relationship between religion and society in hindu culture. All our social norms are governed by religion. Our religion is human love & affection. It teaches non-violence, courtesy, sacrifice, universal brotherhood. Spiritual strength is always considered superior to physical strength. In ancient times political power was in the hands of the kings. But the moral leadership of the public was in the hands of saints and gurus. As a result, the royal power could not ignore the moral values & ethics. Mother and Mother land (birth place) have always been important in Indian culture.

“Janani Janmabhoomischa Swargadapi Gariyasi.
Bharatvarsha is not only a unit to be governed but, she is embodiment of their spiritual culture or our mother Goddess which every thing which belongs to her, is divine.
That’s why everyone should enjoy the fruit provided by the mother together, but should never ever exploit it.
