Sanatan Vaidic Dharma : The only Dharma for one and all

How and why is Sanatan-Vaidic-dharma (also known as Hinduism) the one and only Dharma for one and all, for entire Humanity? How does it excel over other religions? Are all religions same and equal? Why should one follow Sanatan Vaidic Dharma (Hinduism) rather some other religion? What are the differences between Hinduism and other religions? Many a times, people have such innocent questions in their minds.

For such questions, one can get some answers through a comparative understanding to select what is best for one's soul and others as well.

(1) Most of the other religions have almost a fixed system, a fixed and same path 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 Sanatan Vaidic-Dharma (Hinduism) as per the suitability and likeness to one's heart, and most importantly the right-guidance of the Guru (spiritual preceptor).

Sanatan Vaidic Dharma (and also the religions born in Bharatvarsha) encourages genuine enquiries and questions, while many religions suppresses enquiries and questions in general, especially about the God and his nature, etc.

(2) Execpt Hinduism, all other religions 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 beginningless and therefore eternal, ever existent, therefore it is called Sanatan Dharma.

Abrahmic religion like christianity, etc., are the 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 forever, therefore Dharma is eternal, also because it is the Dharma of the nature.

(3) While other religions started at some point of time and have some human-source (prophet or messenger or saint, e.g. Buddha, Jesus, etc), Hinduism has no such Human-source and the time of beginning.

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

It means the god in Sanatan-Dharma 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.

Bhagavan 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 thereafter Judgement day is an illogical concept in Abrahmic religions, as It shows God in poor light, not very kind, loving, benevolent, and compassionate(?), unlike Bhagavan (god) in Sanatan Dharma.

If there would be only one birth, then the god should have given an equal opportunity and knowledge of the Abrahmic religion to all Humans, however it is not the case as billions of people are not even aware about such religions, hence by their concept those billions would be thrown into eternal hell for no good reason, That means god is not kind and compassionate, therefore the one birth concept has no rationale and logic behind it.

(5) While in Abrahmic religions, God is seen as an elderly male; 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 best among females and the goddess whose biography and sublime conduct is completely documented in Itihasa Shri Ramayana.

(6) While in Abrahmic religions, God is seen mostly as father or sustainer only; while in Hinduism, God can be worshipped in various relationship with him, He is seen as the father as well as the mother of whole world, still he becomes even the 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 to serve him in Dasya (servitude), or his friend in Sakhya-rasa, or as his parents or son in Vataslya Rasa, or as his husband or beloved as being his wife or his paramour (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 several 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?; How and Why does god create the world?; why are there Jivas (inidividual souls) in this material-world?; the similarities & differences and the relations between god and Jivas; and there are so many deep topics.

Abrahmic religions lack such deep philosophies.

(9) Unlike other religions, In Sanatan Dhamra, there is no concept of the one one son of god, and the last messenger, or the last guru.

Truth is when Bhagavan is pleased, he sends a genuine 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 the 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.
