Sanatana Dharma aka Hinduism

Sanatana Dharma, commonly referred to as Hinduism in the West, is the world’s oldest known set of traditions with roots and customs dating back more than 4,000 years in India. Sanatana Dharma is unique in that it’s not a religion but a compilation of many traditions and philosophies, and it does not have a founder as do Buddhism and Christianity.

AUM - OM - Hinduism

Like many Westerners, Sanatana Dharma has seeped into my life by becoming aware of yoga, meditation, and Sanskrit Mantras, often by reading Autobiography of a Yogi by Yogananda.

Paramhansa Yogananda

Paramhansa Yogananda was an Indian monk, yogi, and guru, and founder of the Self-Realization Fellowship / Yogoda Satsanga Society of India who introduced millions of Indians and westerners to the teachings of meditation and Kriya Yoga.

His first book, published in 1946, Autobiography of a Yogi is on HarperSan Francisco’s list of the “100 best spiritual books of the 20th Century”.
