Dharma: All About Our Religion

Hinduism is known for its centuries-old culture, which assimilates in every soul. The very concept of “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam”, which describes that the planet Earth is family and all living creatures, be it humans, animals, insects or plants, are a part of it. Even though it is an ancient concept, it is assertively followed even in today's time as well. This concept is the essence of Hindu culture. History has itself witnessed that no means of force or deceit was put to use to preach this culture all over the world. It was compassion, knowledge, love, and logical reasoning that helped people understand its origin.

Religious Texts & Their Two Parts

Our religious scriptures and texts contribute to enhancing our culture and beliefs. Hindu scriptures are divided into two parts. Among them are “Shruti” and “Smriti”. Shruti means hearing, that is, the knowledge gained from divine men. Whereas Smriti means memory, i.e. any knowledge gained or heard before has been memorized and scripted into texts. The four Vedas, Brahma Sutras and Upanishads are counted in the Shruti texts. While Manu Smriti, Ramayana, Mahabharata and 18 Puranas are categorized as the Smriti Granth.
