INDIA or any nation for that matter is a big community of people sharing the same creed. That creed is defined in its constitution.

And what is our creed? That we are an inclusive community that respects all religions. Those right or left ideologies who want to break and divide people are against the idea of INDIA, they are against our community.  

Sanatana Dharma – The primordial religion

Now consider this, Hinduism is the popular name of Sanatana Dharma. Why is Hinduism called Sanatana Dharma? 
From Quora: {The two words, “Sanatana Dharma”, come from the ancient Sanskrit language. “Sanatana” is a Sanskrit word that denotes that which which is Anadi (beginningless), Anantha (endless) and does not cease to be, that which is eternal and everlasting. Dharma is from dhri, meaning to hold together, to sustain. Its approximate meaning is “Natural or Cosmic Law,” or those principles of reality which are inherent in the very nature and design of the universe. Thus the term Sanatana Dharma can be roughly translated to mean “the natural, ancient and eternal way.” It is a code of ethics, a way of living through which one may achieve moksha (enlightenment, liberation).}  

Now, this means that Hindus consider them to be the father/mother or original religion. From this point of view, all religions that come after are the progeny of Hinduism.

If Sanatana Dharma is the first religion, by that fact doesn’t it become the mother of all religions? (By the way, the same claim is made by the proponents of Jainism, Judaism & Taoism)

That makes all the religions that came after, sons and daughters of Hinduism, right?

Then why is a mother hating and fighting with her own children?

Aren’t all great prophets teaching the same natural and eternal way? Aren’t all great prophets enlightening the humanity about those natural and cosmic laws?

So, as per this view, whatever name their followers may give their religion, they are all in fact sons and daughters of the Sanatana Dharma.

Because there are no different laws of nature for different religions. All are trying to know, interpret and follow the same cosmic laws. So what’s the fuss about?

Shouldn’t a father/mother be inclusive of all his/her children?

Why would God play favourites to any religion? Aren’t all religions God’s own, if they all know and follow the true law of God?

Shouldn’t the ones who calls themselves the broadest and grand daddy of all religions should be inclusive of all prophets who came after?

Already we consider Buddha to be one of the incarnations of Vishnu. From this point of view, Christ, Mohammad, Buddha and Guru Nanak, or whoever has preached the God’s law, all are God’s Prophets. All are Sanatana Dharma’s Prophets. Teaching the same laws of God. Interpretations may differ from time to time, place to place.

The Vedas give us the wonderful concept of “Vasidhaiv Kutumbakam” – The Whole World is a Family.

And hasn’t that happen in a way, that INDIA or Hindustan is the land where all religions have there place. In fact, it may be the only country in all of planet Earth, where we celebrate Diwali, Christmas, Buddha Purnima, Eid and Guru Purab together. And that is what INDIA is all about. Inclusiveness. Let’s not let the right and left divide India and break our community. 

Let’s understand a few things:

GOD = The Creator

DHARMA = Cosmic Principles/Laws

RELIGION – came from the Latin word RELIGARE which means “To come back” – Return to God = The Way Back to God

Now, the division or difference of opinion happens when we divide God in my God and your God. And my way and your way.


FANATICISM = Your God and Your Way is WRONG. ONLY My God and My Way is RIGHT.

HERO WORSHIP = Being oblivious to the VIRTUES of others. Being oblivious to the VICES of your choice.
(Only God is perfect, rest only are a mixture of vices and virtues)
Whosoever I worship all his vices are virtues. All his wrongdoings are right.
And if you don’t agree, like and worship my hero, then you are wrong and should be persecuted and prosecuted.
Hero-Worshipping results in you making your hero into your master, into a semi-god; even if he is a rapist & killer (How many God-Men are in Indian jails right now!). You blindly start doing all kinds of horrendous karmas (which by the way are all accounted for in your Personal Karmic A/c) at the command or wish of your hero.


Openness, Respect, Objectivity & Acceptance of the Weaknesses of your opinions/choices/heroes and, Strengths of others.


There are fanatics & hero-worshippers in all religions who always choose the Way of Hate & Violence.

There are God-Lovers in all religions who always choose the Way of Love & Non-Violence.

AND THE MOST HUMOUROUS FACT is that when a fanatic is born in one religion/nation, he hates the other religions/nations. And in next life, when the same fanatic is born in some other religion/nation which he was hating in the previous birth, he starts hating the religion/nation he was born in the previous birth. It’s tragical to the point of being comical.

But a God-Lover when is born in a different religion than his previous birth will gain a different perspective and will take one more step towards BEING ONE WITH GOD, the real purpose of all religions. According to one belief, Hindu Guru – Adi Shankaracharya was incarnated as Saint Francis of Assisi in one of his previous births. And if that’s true then he excelled in understanding and propagating both Hinduism and Christianity in his different incarnations. That’s what a true Spiritual Being is. That’s what a true God-Lover is.

You choose what you want to be:
A ‘fanatic’ or A ‘God-Lover’!

With love and peace
