    Dharm vs Religion धर्म और रिलिजन / पंथ

    1. Dharm, is the manifestation of natural laws that govern the universe and all its creation. Thus, Dharm can never be formed by an individual; it only continues evolving over a period of time through the collective wisdom of generations before. The basis of Dharm, always, is truth and righteousness.

    धर्म ,प्राकृतिक नियमों की अभिव्यक्ति है ,जो सृष्टि को संचालित करते हैं , इसलिए धर्म किसी व्यक्ति के द्वारा बनाया नहीं जा सकता धर्म सदा ही विकसित रहता है पुरानी पीढ़ियों के द्वारा संकलित ज्ञान के माध्यम से

    Religion can be founded by any individual on the basis of an arbitrary set of dogmas that the founder picks. Then, the founder becomes the prophet/Guru/ for that religion and the dogmas, or a set of rules to go by, form his religion.

    रिलिजन /संप्रदाय /पंथ किसी भी व्यक्ति के द्वारा बनाया जा सकता है ,जो की मनमाने नियम और अपनी मर्ज़ी के अच्छे लगने वाले कानूनों को लेकर बनाया जा सकता है जो की कोई पैगम्बर , या गुरु चुनता है अपने पंथ या संप्रदाय के लिए

    2. Dharm cares for the entire humanity

    धर्म सम्पूर्ण मनुष्यता के बारे में सोचता है

    Religion only thinks about the people of its 'own' faith and Religion has a long, blood-soaked history of slaughtering millions of innocent people

    रिलिजन केवल अपने ही मज़हब के लोगों के लिए सोचता है और रिलिजन के साथ बहुत ला,मी रक्त रंजित इतिहास जुड़ा हो सकता है

    3. In Dharm the reason, philosophy and psychology play greater role.

    धर्म में कारण,दर्शन और आध्यात्मिकता प्रधान होती है

    Religious beliefs have neither rationality nor spirituality.

    रिलिजन में तर्कसंगतता और आध्यात्मिकता का कोई मतलब नहीं बनता

    4. Dharm respects everyone.

    धर्म सबका आदर करता है

    Religious people are often arrogant and consider themselves as superior and always right.

    रिलिजन वाले लोग अधिकतर अहंकारी और स्वयं को दूसरों से उत्तम मानने वाले होते हैं

    5. Dharm is open for discussion; alternative views are entertained in it. It even encourages expression of differing opinions or belief system

    धर्म सदा के विचार विमर्श के लिए खुला रहता है और दुसरे विचारों को भी अपने में समाहित करता है

    Religion has closed ideology or no ideology. It destroys the freedom of thought and expression by sustained, systematic and ruthless attacks

    रिलिजन एक बंद विचारधारा होती है ,जो वैचारिक स्वतंत्रता का नाश करती है और अभिव्यक्ति को रोकती है ,पूरे योजनाबद्ध तरीके से

    6.Dharm is based on the ancient, original thinking.

    धर्म पुरातन और मूल सोच पर आधारित होता है

    Religion is bitterly opposed to the ancient original values.

    रिलिजन पुरानी मान्यताओं के विरोध में खड़ा रहता है

    Hence the word religion is not the right one for Sanatan Dharm/Hinduism.Religion is the right word for all the 'created' ones, having a History and date of their 'creation'.Hence the Dharm remains Sanatan {eternal } always

    इसलिए रिलिजन सही शब्द नहीं है सनातन धर्म/हिंदुत्व के लिए और रिलिजन ही बिलकुल एक सही शब्द है , उन सब 'बनाये गए' सम्प्रदायों और पंथों के लिए जिनकी 'शुरुआत' का एक 'इतिहास' है धर्म तो सदा सत्य और सनातन रहता है

    If you remove one holy book or one main person from the religion or one main holy place,the existence of religion comes under threat of extinction but when it comes to Dharma you remove all books , all religious places , all saints who have contributed from society and even god from it, still dharma will exist in the eternal world of mankind (meditation/inner knowledge/spiritual knowledge )

    Jai Satya Sanatan Dharm

    जय सत्य सनातन धर्म

    Is Dharma religion?

    Generally the equivalent of Dharm in English is considered "religion". However, this translation is based on a fundamental misunderstanding since if "religion" means :- the condition of belonging to a religious order, a particular religious or monastic order, a particular system of a belief in a supernatural power, Then Dharm has nothing to do with religion. In this sense, the Sanskrit word for "religion" can be "sampradaya" or "Mata", but not Dharm. If "religion" means belief in a superhuman controlling power, entitled to obedience, reverence, and worship, then it is just an aspect of Dharm, viz. devotion to the Divinity. In this sense, the Sanskrit equivalent of "religion" can be "Shraddha" or bhakti", but not Dharm because, as described above, the true realm of Dharma extends far beyond just that. Either way, Dharma is NOT religion.

    Thank you for pointing that out. So many English books still refer to SD as religion, when in fact it is not, or is so much more than that. It bothers me when I see this in books, as I am trying to learn about SD, but I keep running into books released by supposed Jagadgurus for the western market, only to find concepts such as salvation, heaven, complete surrender to god, and abandoning worldly affairs. It's like I'm running through a thick forest as fast as I can, but I'm having to dodge these trees of falsehood.

    well in-completion is part of nature and being SD you shouldn't be worried about books and all ..they are part of world and negativity will always remain where there will be positivity..we need both to run the world. :)
