What does Sanatan Dharma mean?
'Sanatan' means Eternal, and 'Dharma' means Religion. We believe that our religion has existed from the beginning of time and will exist forever. Therefore, our religion is called Sanatan Dharma
Sanatan Dharma is extremely extensive therefore it has many principles. However, there are five main principles each beginning with the letter P.
These are as follows:
1. Parmeshvar – (God)
2. Prarthna – (Prayer)
3. Punarjanma – (Reincarnation)
4. Purushartha – (Law of action)
5. Prani-Daya – (Compassion for all living things)
Our scriptures are known by the name of Shastra. There are many scriptures in Sanatan Dharma. The scriptures tell us what we should do and should not do. By reading the scriptures our mind becomes purified and we grow closer to God
