Ayurvedsutra Vol 05 issue 12 9 - Dharma and the Medical Tradition of Ancient India

Dharma cannot be translated as religion as this vast tradition of the sanatana dharma is not bound by certain sets of rules and regulations to be followed and the followers must pray or believe in certain God or god like figure, and so on. It has no founder or no special norms. It is technically wrong to use the word ‘Hinduism’.  The principles for life based upon the cosmic principles were called as sanatana dharma by the ancient Indians. Sanatana dharma is not a religion but a Weltanschauung. It does not only talk of the human beings and the cosmos but also of the cosmogony.
