Our Dharmic Principles
- Sanatan Sanskriti : Hinduism, is amongst the world's oldest religious traditions, has no beginning--it precedes recorded history. It has no human founder. It is a mystical religion, leading the seeker to personally experience the Truth within oneself.
- Punya Bhoomi : India, the birth place of Hinduism is an integratedspace of culturally diverse Hindus who have a deep spiritual relationship with the land of Bharat Varsha,represented through its ancient sacred geography of tirths, rivers, forests, mountains & seas.
- Dharma : Dharma is the “universal moral order” and includes behaviours’ that are considered to be in accord with ‘rta’, the order that makes life and universe possible, and includes duties, rights, laws, conduct, virtues and "right way of living".
- Moksha : Hindus believe that the soul reincarnates, evolving through many births until all karmas have been resolved, and moksha, liberation from the cycle of rebirth, is attained. Not a single soul will be deprived of this destiny.
- Ahimsa : Hindus believe that all life is sacred, to be loved and revered, and therefore practice ahimsa, non-injury, in thought, word and deed.
- Samsāra : In Hinduism, Saṃsāra is a journey of the soul. The body dies, assert the Hindu traditions, but not the soul which it assumes to be the eternal reality, indestructible and pure bliss. Hindu scriptures teach that the future is both a function of current human effort derived from free will and past human actions that set the circumstances.
- Karma : Hindus believe in karma, the law of cause and effect by which each individual creates his own destiny by his/her thoughts, words and deeds.
- Syadvad : Hindus believe that no religion teaches the only way to salvation above all others, but that all genuine paths are facets of truth, deserving tolerance and understanding.
- Anitya : Hindus believe that the universe undergoes continuous & endless cycles of creation, preservation and dissolution. All physical and mental events, come into being and dissolve. Human life embodies this flux in the aging process, the cycle of repeated birth and death (Samsara), nothing lasts, and everything decays.
- Purusharth : Classical Hindu thought accepts four proper goals or aims of human life : Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksha.
- Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam : The uniqueness of Hindu Dharma and the culture& traditions as practiced by Hindu communities has a significant contribution to make for the benefit of all humanity.
