It is accepted as a way of living worldwide,” he said at a meet of Hindu spiritual organisations held at the beach here last night.

Delivering the key-note address at the ‘Mahabharatham Dharmarakshana Sangamam,’ he said Hindu dharma meant showing compassion to all irrespective of caste, religion or status. Earlier, inaugurating the sangamam, Yoga guru Ramdev said dividing the society in the name of caste and religion should be stopped.

“The need of the hour is unity of the people and the nation. The madness of dividing people and the nation on the basis of caste and religion should be stopped,” he said. He urged people to avoid products by multi-national companies saying that people of the country should be equipped with products and techniques made in India.

He assured to start a higher education centre named after the Adi Sankara in Kerala, which is the sage’s birth place. Thousands of people from Kozhikode and nearby districts participated in the meet organised by various Hindu spiritual outfits like the Chinmaya Mission, Sri Ramakrishna Mission, Matha Amritanandamayi Math, Kolathur Advaitha Ashram. More than a hundred sadhus and spiritual leaders from across the state participated in the meet.

    Anything that is the way of life followed by the people for many eons and continuing even now, guided by the holy scripts, respects other religions in the world can also termed as a Religion.

        You mean to say other religion's are not saying about how to live a life? Agreed there was no mention of Hindu religion in ancient times, it's santhalaxmi dharma, which we now call Hinduism. Call any which way you want but it is a religion and all religions are nothing but a way of living.

          There cannot be second opinion about this thought. It is wrong and uncalled for if any slogan related to Bharat that is India is imposed on any one. The Honorable Minister may organize such symposiums in states where leftist parties have misunderstood and misinterpreted it.
