Sanaatan Dharm Sevarth
Sanatana dharma, means ( शाश्वत )“eternal” or absolute set of duties or religiously ordained practices incumbent upon all, regardless of class, caste, or sect. Different texts give different lists of the duties, but in general sanatana dharma consists of virtues such as honesty, refraining from injuring living beings, purity, goodwill, mercy, patience, forbearance, self-restraint, generosity, and asceticism. Sanatana dharma is contrasted with svadharma, one’s “own duty” or the particular duties enjoined upon an individual according to his or her class or caste and stage of life. The potential for conflict between the two types of dharma (e.g., between the particular duties of a warrior and the general injunction to practice non-injury) is addressed in Hindu texts such as the Bhagavad Gītā, where it is said that in such casessvadharma must prevail.
Sanatana-dharma is the oldest religion in the world. … Sanatana-dharma is pre-historic and absolute in nature. On the other hand the term Hindu or Hindu dharma is a term given by Persians only a few centuries ago, to mean the people living beside the river Sindhu.
For every individual, following sanatana dharma means living their lives in such a way that they are always considering their moral choices and making the best decisions they can. They should also worship and pray so that they are thinking about God.
To save the society by so many negativities, It is very important to serve the Sanaatan Dharma. Sanatana Dharma has always insisted on being an Adhikari to perform a task optimally. Our scriptures are laden with layers of wisdom which any individual can keep mining for thousands of janmas. To understand the value, we must familiarize ourselves with one. Despite our affinities, we must try to meditate upon the original sloka and try to lead our lives.
It is very important to become the ideals we are after. Try to identify and cultivate these qualities as it will not only raise us spiritually but also benefit our daily lives.
Awareness and action: PADMANABHAM SOCIETY WILL raise the awareness of what is going around. We see how love jihad is happening, yet do not have a conversation with people around. So also when desperate Christian missionaries copy our spiritual wealth, be it our books, temples, architecture, ideology or mannerisms like wearing Saffron clothes of a fake sadhu, we keep quiet. We think it as amusing without understanding the impact to our ecosystem.
Padmanabham Society pledged to serve the society by creating awareness through several means of it’s program about the Indian Sanaatan culture which has the following values:
- To teach Gita and other scriptures regularly. Take time to do Sadhana of your type.
- To make people Understand that different Sanatana Dharma paramparas seem mutually conflicting but talk of the same Brahman, so respect all This is not the same as all religion is same kind of artificial idea.
- To motivate our kids read Amar Chitra Katha rather than comics. Do not let TV teach them scriptures. Definitely not some mythologist. Learn from traditional authentic sources and ensure they are practitioners.
- To preach doing nishkamya seva to the society.
- To Support heritage institutions that are under massive attack like vedapatashalas, gaushalas, clean some abandoned temples.
- Create Awareness to Do not hide under the false pretense of secularism and let hinduphobic ideas to take root or sprout around you.
- To Reach out to others in the Hindu society – be it socio-economically distressed or someone who needs a mere hand around them.
- To Stay in touch with the existing spiritual institutions, practice family traditions with fervor.
