42. Closing Remarks


Hinduism, known as Sanatan Dharma is a life long study. It is so vast that one can keep writing books on it through one's lifetime.

The author, Amrut, has very limited understanding of Sanatan Dharma. Here he attempts to give basic information on Sanatan Dharma and give clarity on various topics which has come to his mind.

We sincerely hope that sharing information will help others to understand Hindu Dharma atleast to some extend from the traditional Point of View.

It is a tradition to open and close any spiritual discussion with Shanti Mantra (Peace Chant). It reminds us of our path and brings peace and divinity within us.

Closing Invocation:

ॐ पूर्णमदः पूर्णमिदम् पूर्णात् पूर्णमुदच्यते |

पूर्णस्य पूर्णमादाय पूर्णमेवावशिष्यते ||

ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः || [1]

Auṃ pūrṇamadaḥ pūrṇamidam pūrṇāt pūrṇamudacyate

pūrṇasya pūrṇamādāya pūrṇamevāvaśiṣyate

oṃ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ

Aum! That is infinite (Brahman), and this (universe) is infinite.

The infinite proceeds from the infinite.

(Then) taking the infinitude of the infinite (universe),

It remains as the infinite (Brahman) alone.

Aum! Peace! Peace! Peace!

Shanti Mantra of brihadAraNyaka Upanishad and iSAvAsya upanishad of yajuyveda.

42.1. A Request

Explaining Hinduism is not easy. Sri Chandrashekharendra Sarasvati Svami, 68th Shankaracharya of Kanchi Kamakoti Peetha, who was often glorified as 'The Walking God' has explained Hindu Dharma in much detail. His discourses are penned down in a book called 'Daivattin Kural' in Tamil, which consists of 7 volumes. This book is translated in English nad published under the title, 'The Voice of God'. Out of these 7 volumes, two volumes are published separately as the title 'Hindu Dharma – Varna Dharma for Universal Well being'. The entire book is available online in html format here. There is another book called 'Voice of Guru – The Guru Tradition', which is an extraction of teachings related to Guru from various volumes is also very useful. Books are published by Bhartiya Vidya Bhavans. It is recommended to read both these books to fully understand Hindu Dharma.

Source: Extracted from the book, Hindu Dharma, which are the collections of saying of Kanchi Paramacharya. (Missing Chapter in online version of Hindu Dharma is Uploaded here.)
