In Santana Dharma:, we wish good for everyone.
However, that's not the case with religions; sanatana dharma: is not a religion. Religions is a philosophy or ideology based on beliefs of one person or messaih or the divine messenger. There's discrimination between BELIEVERS & NON-BELIEVERS, this is not the case with Santana Dharma:. Since, Sanatana Dharma: is not based on beliefs of one person or messaih, there's no question of discrimination between BELIEVERS & NON-BELIEVERS. There's no imposition of 'one belief on everyone.'
Sanatana Dharma: considers everyone as the creatures created by Lord or Brahman. Irrespective of the person's religious beliefs, caste, creed, race & gender, Sanatana Dharma: embraces everyone as children of Brahman & considers everyone.
Sanatana Dharma: completely discards all bodily affiliations like race, religion, caste, gender, creed & so on. We are going to post an article on this soon, so please subscribe to our site.
Santana Dharma: considers every person as a soul (Atman). Atman is dependent on Brahman (Lord). Sanatanis adore the Atman in everyone. Our bodies are like clothes we wear, death is an agent of change, which makes us change the bodies or attain new bodies or attain new incarnations. Atman is indestructible.
अच्छेद्योऽयमदाह्योऽयमक्लेद्योऽशोष्य एव च |
नित्य: सर्वगत: स्थाणुरचलोऽयं सनातन: || 24||
Achchhedyo ’yam adāhyo ’yam akledyo ’śhoṣhya eva cha
nityaḥ sarva-gataḥ sthāṇur achalo ’yaṁ sanātanaḥ
The Atma cannot be cut, cannot be burnt, cannot be wetted, and also cannot be dried up. It is eternal, all-pervading, firm, immovable, and ancient.
As per the Vedas, the world is governed by the Lord through Prakriti or Nature. Nature can be divided into 3 types or Gunaa: - Satt, Rajas or Tamas, popularly known as 'Trigunaa:'
This is supported by following stanzas of Bhagavad-Gita -
रजस्तमश्चाभिभूय सत्त्वं भवति भारत |
रज: सत्त्वं तमश्चैव तम: सत्त्वं रजस्तथा || 10||
Rajas tamaśh chābhibhūya sattvaṁ bhavati bhārata
rajaḥ sattvaṁ tamaśh chaiva tamaḥ sattvaṁ rajas tathā
BG 14.10: Sometimes goodness (sattva) prevails over passion (rajas) and ignorance (tamas), O scion of Bharat. Sometimes passion (rajas) dominates goodness (sattva) and ignorance (tamas), and at other times ignorance (tamas) overcomes goodness (sattva) and passion (rajas).
One can also refer Satt Guna as Divinity, Rajas as Humanity and Tamas as Evil.
Satt Atmans or Pure souls, affiliated with more righteousness & nobility, devotion & self-control. Rajasic Atmans or Passionate Atmans have more inclination towards sensual pleasures, they are more passionate about worldly things. Tamasic souls are innately evil, they are more demonic & hedonic souls. They are mean, arrogant, jealous & infatuated.
One should remember, these characteristics will be exhibited in the form of behavior, throughout their incarnations. Every human behavior is a mixture of all these Trigunas. Even Sattvics have Rajas & Tamasic tendencies, but most of time they are Sattvics. So is true with Rajasic & Tamasic souls.
Sanatan Dharma: adores the Sattva Guna, that's it preaches to discriminate between the creatures of the creator. It promotes to see the Lord in all creatures.
We have this stanza, in support of this notion -
ॐ सर्वे भवन्तु सुखिनः सर्वे सन्तु निरामयाः ।
सर्वे भद्राणि पश्यन्तु मा कश्चिद्दुःखभाग्भवेत् ।
ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः ॥
Om Sarve Bhavantu Sukhinah, Sarve Santu Nir-Aamayaah |
Sarve Bhadraanni Pashyantu, Maa Kashcid-Duhkha-Bhaag-Bhavet |
Om Shaantih Shaantih Shaantih ||
May every one be happy, may every one be free from all diseases,
may everyone see goodness and auspiciousness in everything, may none be unhappy or distressed.
Om peace, peace, peace!
This is further summarized as 'Sarve Jana: Sukhino Bhavantu' meaning 'May all people be blissful!'
