धर्म Dharma literally in Sanskrit means a conscious way of living that sustains and is also sustainable.
By its very interpretation it means that which endures for a very long time. Hence also referred to in long form as सनातन धर्म Sanatana Dharma - the Eternal way of conscious living.
- Sustainability is a key word nowadays, backed up scientific reasoning, and inclusive of all life forms. Most people are confused about sustainability because you have to consider all stakeholders, just like when it comes to धर्म Dharma we have to consider all angles and is best communicated through the mind blowing pantheon of Hindu stories.
- Incidentally, धर्म पत्नी Dharma Patni is not the Western model of "wife". The male in the marital relationship is responsible for conducting Yagnyas, fire offerings that are naively portrayed as physical fire sacrifices like in the Vedas, and the "wife" keeps handing out sticks of wood in simplistic cartoon representations. In the Yoga context though, a Dharma Patni as a fully evolved Yogini herself, is responsible for helping her mate kindle his inner spiritual fires, the kundalini shakthi.
The underlying objective of Akhanda Bharath is not primarily territorial conquest but the conquest for minds and hearts of all individuals on earth, and then Dharma will reign supreme, and artificial nation-state boundaries will be replaced with natural boundaries aligned with the Earth's own architecture.
We also wish to include all the Dharmic paths within our fold, and that includes Buddhists, Taoists, Sikhs, Jains, Shamans, Wiccans, & Tribals - many pejoratively once called Pagans. And that is how Akhanda Bharath will be realised across the whole planet, by de-programming the minds and winning over the hearts of the people.
The Conscious Being that is the Earth - what is her Yogic map? What is the Manas, Chittha, Buddhi, Ahamkara? What is the Yagnya she needs to perform with Asana practice, Pranyama practice, and meditation practices - so that we achieve Sustainability in every sphere of life? Delicious questions to answer indeed!
