dogra Posted September 17, 2011 Report Share Posted September 17, 2011 Sanatan Dharma (hinduism) teaches to practice humanity and thats a fact!! Now, interesting how things get muddled with sanatan dharma, so lets start with basic summary points, the prime directives so to speak: 1) In The Bhagawad Gita, sloka 20, Chapter 10, Lord Krishna says, "I am the Self seated in the heart of all creatures. I am the beginning, the middle and the very end of all beings". All beings have, therefore to be treated alike. note ALL beings, no one excluded, simple enough 2) Karma Yoga-selfless service or sewa: http://www.santosha.com/philosophy/gita-chapter3.html Therefore, always perform your duty efficiently and without attachment to the results, because by doing work without attachment one attains the Supreme. King Janaka and others attained perfection by Karma-yoga alone. You should perform your duty with a view to guide people and for the universal welfare (of the society). Because, whatever noble persons do, others follow. Whatever standard they set up, the world follows 3) prime goal-MOKSHA-merging with god so to speak, going to heaven so to speak, Now this can only be attained by leading a good life, a righteous life, free from vices. 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
