Siddhapur (Udupi, Karnataka), 22nd December – There is only one Dharma in the whole world and that is Sanatan Hindu Dharma and rest all are Sects. Dharma gives everlasting principles to the changing world. If we do not protect such Dharma, there will be only ghosts who will destroy each other and a world that is devoid of morality and principles would be created. Today’s world is full of sorrow and inequality. Toynbee, a philosopher says that he did not feel that other countries in the world have any culture except India. Indian culture is the only culture in the world. We are, however, turning our back towards such culture. The above views were expressed by Sri Sri Vinayakanand Swamiji of Ramakrishna Ashram while addressing Hindu Dharmajagruti Sabha held by Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) on Thursday, 18th December at Shrirangnath Sabha Bhavan.
