Sanatan Dharma- Part 7

Sanatan Dharma is  the ancient original name of what is now called Hinduism or Hindu Dharma or Hindu Religion. The terms Hindu and Hinduism are said to be a more recent development, while the more accurate term is Sanatan Dharma. It is a way of living through which one may achieve moksha (enlightenment, liberation).

In general Sanatan Dharma consists of virtues such as honesty, refraining from injuring living beings, purity, goodwill, mercy, patience, forbearance, self-restraint, generosity, and asceticism.

Sanatan Dharma represents much more than just a religion; rather, it provides its followers with an entire worldview, way of life and with a coherent and rational view of reality.
