Unlike other religions prevailing in the world, Sanatan Dharm is NOT rule based . While God of all the other religion had made and delivered the rules to be followed by the society following that faith, VEDAS, the principle religious texts of Hindus are only KNOWLEDGE to live in a society and also how to interact with the world. They are NOT rules.
Sanatan Dharm ensures the following:
Note: During the last 5000 years at least, the Hindu society is being exploited by their own religious preachers and experts.
A Dharmic person is one who works sincerely, honestly for his/her growth, along with the growth of his/her family, his larger family, and also the society/mohalla where he/she may be living. This honest and sincere effort would/could also improve his position in society including wealth.
Note: here sincerely, honestly also means that the person will oppose all negative attitude including corruption, atrocities on females and weaker section and negative impact on nature and environment. It is important for everyone to accept and understand that the above is a complete and NO NONSENSE definition of Dharmic person .A Dharmic person is SATYAM in the phase Satyam Shivam Sundaram.
Same as that of Dharmic person, except that here, there is a feeling of RENOUNCEMENT and hence a Spiritual person would believe in giving more and accepting less. Hence the spiritual person will work more for the upliftment of persons/nature coming in contact then to improve his position in society including wealth.The Spiritual person is as such SHIVAM in the phrase Satyam Shivam Sundaram.
Here the renouncement is COMPLETE. The person has renounced worldly pleasure and materialistic affects, and is totally devoted to working for progress of society and environment. The entire effort of Saadhu is to make this world a beautiful place to live in, and for this the Saadhu has already declared and dedicated His life.
He is Sundaram in the phrase Satyam Shivam Sundaram.
What exactly is a Guru can be understood by going through the ancient texts where guru usually asked for onetime payment or Guru Dakshina after completion of entire education. Usually onetime payment or Guru Dakshina was preceded by physical verification of education or TEST, we could say in current context. As such a Guru is one who preaches or educates persons about Dharm on the basis of physical verifiable parameters.
