An immense, many-sided and many staged provision for a spiritual self-building and self-finding

Mera Bharat Mahan Dreaming of a great India Wednesday, December 12, 2007
Hinduism gave itself no name, because it set itself no sectarian limits; it claimed no universal adhesion, asserted no sole infallible dogma, set up no single narrow path or gate of salvation; it was less a creed or cult than a continuously enlarging tradition of the Godward endeavor of the human spirit. An immense, many-sided and many staged provision for a spiritual self-building and self-finding, it had some right to speak of itself by the only name it knew, the eternal religion, Sanatana Dharma. Sri Aurobindo (1872-1950) Posted by Bahu of Bengal at 11:19 AM Labels: , ,
About this blog
India is not a mere jumble of peoples of different languages, ethnic groups, religions, and castes. She is a nation whose nationhood is rooted in Hindu culture.
Emerging issues on this blog include humanitarian efforts; arts of India; protection of India's heritage, natural and cultural, tangible and intangible; and terrorism.
