(Answer) (Category) Hindu FAQ : (Category) In Hindu dharma and culture, what is . . . :
What is the definition of Hindu dharma?
Hinduism defines itself in terms of Sanatana Dharma, which means the "universal tradition." Such a comprehensive teaching is evident in the many sided yogic and meditational practices of Hinduism, the vast culture of Hinduism including art, medicine and science, and in the Hindu recognition of the importance of all systems of knowledge, material, occult and spiritual. The social customs of Hinduism, with their emphasis on spiritual practices, are also based upon such universal truth, though some of them have departed from it through the long course of time. Hence they require adjustment in light of changing times.
