Do all religions have the same goal?

via published on July 19, 2008

Sanatana Dharma, also known as Hinduism, is synonymous with the ‘Dharma’ propounded by our Vedic scriptures. In other words, the Vedic Civilisation, Religious Tradition and Cultural Heritage are all based on ‘Dharma’ and have been built on it. Whenever Adharma raises its head, the Almighty incarnates itself as a Dharmic ‘Avatar’ and destroys it, or, sends a Guru to establish Dharma to prevail over Adharma.


 Hinduism, which is defined as a ‘way of life’, must be a ‘Dharmic way of life’. The fundamental lesson for the people of this great Hindu nation remains as ‘Dharmo Rakshathi Rakshithaha’, meaning, ‘Dharma protects those who follow and protect it’. Dharma calls upon the people to treat the entire world as one family through the concept called ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’ and instructs them to work with an aim of ‘Sarvejana Sukino Bhavantu’ meaning ‘May all the people in this universe live with happiness and prosperity’.


Against this sacred and divine backdrop, Dharma Rakshana Samithi was founded by His Holiness Swami Dayananda Saraswathi in the year 1999. The Samithi works with the aims and objectives of propagating the uniqueness of Sanatana Dharma to every Hindu and bring him close to his religion and culture, and, creating an awareness on the problems facing the Hindu society and emphasizing the need for unity among Hindus.


Dharma Rakshana Samithi conducts regular programs such as Bhajan and religious classes, Deepa pooja and religious discourses, Sanyasi Yatra, Propagation of Kula Devata, Ishta Devata, Grama Devata and Pitru woeship, Mass programs on the month of Karthika and Iyappa Sangamam. The Samithi also organises a few special programs such as ‘Vallamai Tharayo’ for 10th and 12th standard students, ‘Hindu Religious Workshops’ for Hindus at various locations, ‘Sanyasins Conference’ for Swamijis, Gurus and Madathipathis, ‘Social Harmony Conference’ for various Hindu organizations, ‘Temple Constructions’ and ‘Ramayana Gana Yagna’. The Samithi also imparts training for Teachers, New Comers and Volunteers on various subjects and also trains them on conduction of rituals and oration on spiritual subjects.


Dharma Rakshana Samithi brings out pamphlets and leaflets on various topics to promote and propagate Hindu religious practices & rituals. It publishes books on special religious topics by prominent authors and literatures explaining how to conduct Pujas and the benefits that accrue to the devotees because of such pujas.


Dharma Rakshana Samithi is able to mobilize workers and reach out to thousands of villages apart from rural, suburban and city areas in its sacred mission of uniting people to establish Dharma through religious tradition and cultural heritage.


Though there is a wide spread belief in this sacred land that ‘all religions have the same goal’, the clergies of other religions do not accept this. As this subject needs to be properly understood, particularly in the present environment, which is hostile to Sanatana Dharma in almost all respects, Dharma Rakshana Samithi has organised an important discourse by His Holiness Pujyasri Swami Dayananda Saraswathi on the topic ‘Do all religions have the same goal?’ on Sunday July 20, between 6.30 pm and 8.30 pm at Sadguru Gnananda Hall, Narada Gana Sabha, 314, TTK Road, Alwarpet, Chennai – 18. Political analyst and Editor of the Tamil Weekly ‘Thuglk’, Cho. Ramaswamy will deliver a Special Address. Vice President of the Samithi Dr.Padma Subramanyam will welcome the gathering and Secretary M.N.Sukumar Nambiar will deliver the Vote of Thanks.
