“I say no longer that nationalism is a creed, a religion, a faith; I say that it is the Sanatan Dharma which for us is nationalism. This Hindu nation was born with the Sanatan Dharma, with it, it moves and with it, it grows. When the Sanatan Dharma declines, then the nation declines, and if the Sanatan Dharma were capable of perishing, with the Sanatan Dharma it would perish.”
- Sri Aurobindo
- 30 May 1909.
I decided to start my blog writing with an extract from the famous Uttarpada Speech delivered on 30th May 1909 by Sri Aurobindo. Relevance of his words even after 108 years is astonishing. Today when everyone in this country has his/her own agenda, this should put things in perspective.
Sanatan Dharma, more popularly known as Hinduism, is one of the oldest religions of the world. With time it has seen its fair share of ups and downs. In this blog I will be sharing some of them. Hinduism believes in many Gods as most of you know, but very few people know why it does so? My next post will answer this question once and for all. Why Hindus are so tolerant and what effects it has on our country? And the million dollar question, what is Hindu Nationalism?
In this blog I will be discussing about India, Hinduism, Nationalism and how all these three things are interlinked.
This first blogpost has no real content as it was only written to state what the blog would cotain in the coming years.
No one can take the Sanatan out of this country, however hard they might try.
Jai Hind, Jai Hindu.
