How and why is Sanatan-Vaidic-dharma (Hinduism) the one and only one religion and dharma for one and all, for whole Humanity? How does it excel over all other religions prevalent now? Are all religions same and equal? Why should one follow Sanatan Vaidic Dharma (Hinduism) rather any other popular religion of the world? What are the differences between Hinduism and other religions?

There can be many such questions in the mind of a person, for such questios one can get some answers from a comparative understanding to select what is best for one's soul and others as well.

(1) Abrahmic religions (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam) have almost a fixed system for one and all - treating all at a same plane of ignorance, while Sanatan Vaidic dharma (Hinduism) provides many options and paths to reach to the divine as per the level of qualifications of a Jiva, and is based upon genuine enquiry into the Absolute Truth (Athato Brahm-Jijnasa).

An intelligent person would discriminate and select the best among so many options in Hinduism as per the suitability and likeness to one's heart, and most importantly the right-guidance of the guru.

Hinduism encourages genuine enquiries and questions, while Abrahmic religions suppresses enquiries and questions in general, especially about god and his nature etc.

(2) While Abrahmic religions (Judaism, Christianity , and Islam) and eastern religions like Buddhism etc have some historical recorded beginning, but there is no recorded history of the beginning of the Sanatan Vaidic Dharma (Hinduism) that sanatan dharma begins with some messenger of god or prophet. Sanatan Vaidic dharma is just beginningless and therefore eternal, ever existent.

Hinduism is also called Sanatan-Vaidic-dharma (eternal dharma of Vedas).

Abrahmic religion like christianity, Islam etc are recent new religions, not more than 2000 Years old, however even scientists say Vedas are the most ancient scriptures of this world.

In fact, Hinduism or Veda has no beginning, while all other religions have some point of beginning, and Whatever is commenced at one point of time, would end one day.

Only beginngless entity remains always eternal, therefore Vaidic-dharma is eternal.

(3) While Abrahmic religions (Judaism, Christianity , Islam) are started at some point of time and have some human-source (prophet or messenger), Hinduism has no such Human-source and the time of beginning.

(4) While Abrahmic religions' followers believe in one life only, Hinduism believes in reincarnation (rebirths until the god-realization).

It means the god in Hinduism is very kind and compassionate as he gives timeless and countless opportunities to a Jiva (soul), therefore in some birth a Jiva can elevate himself through the religiosity & righteousness, the right-knowledge, Bhakti (god-consciousness) and total surrender.

God in Hinduism never judges a soul on the basis of one birth to cast him into some eternal hell. Bhagavan is the ocean of love, mercy and compassion.

Therefore, Only one birth and there after Judgement day is an illogical concept in Abrahmic religions, as It means Abrahmic god is not very kind, loving, benevolent, and compassionate unlike Bhagavan (god) in Sanatan Vaidic Dahrma (Hinduism).

If there would be only one birth, then god should have given equal opportunity and knowledge of Abrahmic religion (Christianity or Islam) to all Humans, however it is not the case as billions of people are not aware of Christianity or Islam etc, hence by their concept they would be casted in eternal hell, it means such god is not kind and compassionate, therefore the one birth concept is a completely foolish and has no rationale and logic behind it.

(5) While in Abrahmic religions, God is seen as an elderly male only, while in Vaidic-Sanatan-dharma (Hinduism), The One Absolute Truth (Brahman or Bhagavan) manifests himself into two equal divine lights as the divine couple, a husband (Rama) and wife (Sita) [Others may call them as Lakshmi-Narayana

The female form of the Absolute Truth is seen in Hinduism only. Therefore, women should embrace Sanatan-Vaidic-dharma (Hinduism) with whole heart and soul, especially adore Sita Ji , the consort of Shri Rama, as she is the only goddess (whose biography and sublime conduct is completely documented in Itihasa Shri Ramayana. .

(6) While in Abrahmic religions, God is seen as only Father or sustainer, while in Hinduism God is father as the supreme being, still he becomes even devotee of his devotees, out of love.

In Hinduism, a Jiva can enjoy with god in five mellows (Rasa) : (a) Shanta (passive devotion), (b) Dasya (servitude), (c) Sakhya (friendship), (d) Vatsalya (parenthood) and (e) Madhurya (wifely-love, & paramour of god).

Thus, a Jiva can see Bhagavan Shri Rama as his God and do contemplation on him or his formless-aspect in shanta-rasa and derive bliss without being actively involved in any active mode of relationship, or as his master or father to serve him in Dasya (servitude), or his friend in Sakhya-rasa, or as his husband or beloved as being his wife or his paramour (secret lover) in Madhurya-Rasa.

Therefore, only Sanatan-Vedic-dharma (Hinduism) provides a complete picturization of all the aspects of the Supreme Personality. This is lacking in other religons.

(7) Abrahmic religions lack Spirituality (the knowledge of the nature of : Brahman (The Absolute one), Jiva (individual soul) and Prakriti (nature), and relations among them).

(8) Hinduism is full with many deep philosophies which try to answer many questions such as : How many aspects of The Absolute Truth; why there can't be two Gods, but the same god manifests himself in many aspects, and forms; what is the nature of the Supreme Absolute Truth?; Why god creates the world; why Jivas (inidividual souls) are in this world; similarities and differences and relations between god and Jivas; and there are so many deep topics.

Abrahmic religions alack this.

(9) Abrahmic religions believe only their messenger of god or prophet are true, and all others are wrong. They believe in the concept of some last messenger or the only one son of god, it has no sound basis.

Truth is Bhagavan sends Guru (spiritual preceptor) to the devotee souls as their true friend and spiritual master, there is no time or period constraint on this.

Christians believe only Jesus Christ was the son of God, while Hindu believes all individual souls are inherently divine spark and amsha (portion) of Bhagavan (god) or Brahman (the supreme Absolute Truth).

(10) Vedas are accepted as the most ancient scriptures, still there is no contradiction found in Vedas with any law of nature or physical science or cosmology etc. which are discovered by modern science, in fact Vedas and modern science go well along without any opposition; however same is not true with the books thought to be divine by followers of other religions.

Whatever is said long ago in Vedas, modern science is again reinforcing and approving those facts with their own scientific discoveries. Everything in Vedas is perfect and true, while this is not the same case with Avaidika-scriptures (which are not in line with Vedas). So, Vedas by the virtue of its perfectness in everyway could be the only scripture which are perceived by the supreme absolute (Brahman) himself.

Therefore, Sanatan Vaidic Dharma is one and only one religion for one and all, which is based upon universal Truth, love, kindness, compassion for one and all, to move from the ignorance to the Truth, from darkness to light, from death to immortality.
