Hinduism is a religion that arose several thousands of years ago. It is considered to be the oldest religion in the world, it is also known as “Sanatana Dharma” which means ‘Eternal Law’. Hinduism is considered as a “way of life” instead of a religion by some of its followers. Anyone who is following that way of life can be considered a Hindu.
Hinduism is known for preaching resilience and patience to its followers, and that’s the reason why Hinduism is standing tall after thousand of years of oppression and malicious propaganda.
Well, this was the theme of the concluding day of the Hindutva For Global Good Conference. The eminent speakers talk about the resilience and endurance of Hinduism, what kind of challenges Hinduism is facing in several countries and how it is able to survive even after such a resistance.
