Quotes such as ‘One cannot live without religion’ and Religion is like a narcotic pill’ are contradictory and create confusion in the minds of ordinary people. When we talk about Dharma (Righteousness), most people relate it to words such as Hinduism, lslam, Christianity, Buddhism etc. others think that, since bharat is a secular state, religion is an untouchable topic. Sri Shankaracharya has defined has defined dharma as Follows: ‘Dhahran is that Shankaracharya has defined Dharma as follows: ‘Dharma is that which accomplishes the there tasks of keeping the organizational setup of the society in excellent condition, printing about the worldly progress of every living being, and facilitating their progress in the realm as well.’ We understand from this definition the vastness of Dharma and its extraordinary importance in human life.
If considered in the context of a Nation, then Dharma is the life of the nation. Therefore, only if the lifestyle of the society is based upon the foundation of Dharma, will the nation become prosperous and immortal. A Nation that is devoid of the foundation of Dharma will, in time, face destruction. Elimination of the misconceptions about Dharma is the need of the hour. Form this perspective, analytical information on Dharma-meaning, importance, different types, its various aspects and doctrines pertaining to Dharma, the difference between Dharma and culture on one side Niti (ethics) on the other, decline in Dharma etc. is given in this Holy text. To limit the size of this Holy text, detailed information on subjects has been given in another in independent Holy text called ‘Science of Spirituality: Vol. 2- Dharmagrnth’. For this very reason, information on the four varmas (classes) and Ashrams (Stages of life) that comes under the purview of Dharma and is the foundation of Bharatiya social life has been included in ‘Science of Spirituality: vol.4-Varnashramvyavastha’. We pray at Sri guru’s feet that after reading this Holy text, let at lest a few people feel that they should become Righteous and undertake spiritual practice-compilers.
