Sanatana dharma is the original name of Hinduism, and it means the Dharma to be followed by the followers of Hinduism. Sanatana Dharma mainly focuses on maintaining humanity on this earth and to spread the importance of the Hindu Dharma among the Hindus.
Sanatana dharma was formed in order to guide the humans to do the good karmic deeds, and also to follow the practice of Vedic rituals, Pujas and meditation as a part of their life. The importance of Sanatana Dharma is mentioned in the Bhagavata Purana.
Shaivism and Vaishnavism are the two eyes of the Sanatana Dharma. Many Saints, Divine AMSHAS and Avatars were born for propagating the principles of Hinduism, and to maintain peace and prosperity in the earth.
Strict followers of Sanatana Dharma would regularly visit temples, chant the divine Slokas, Vedas, do meditation, observe fasting and performs Yagnas, Abhishekhams and do all kinds of Puja to the deities. They also would donate their wealth for the cause of the poor people, and do lot of charitable activities. Generally they would be interested to attain SALVATION after their death, and hence during their old age, they would spend most of their money in doing noble activities, and also read the Hindu Scriptures, and would prefer to die in Kashi, in order to attain SALVATION.
The main gurus who are the godfathers of the Sanatana Dharma are Adisankara, Ramanuja and Madhwacharya. Basavanna also spread the Shaivite spirit among the people, and asked them to chant the Shiva Mantra as a daily practice to the devotees of Shiva.
The practice of Sanatana Dharma would never come to an end, and it would further blossom in the forthcoming years. Hence let us read the good Hindu texts, Vedas and other divine texts, and lead a noble life.
Let us worship Lord Vinayaka and be blessed.
