When Brahma said- The suitable groom for your daughter is dead.

According to Vishnu Purana, Brahmaji explored all the worlds on the orders of the king. After this he told the king that 27 Chaturyugas had passed on earth. All suitable grooms for your daughter have died years ago. Brahmaji said that you should marry her to Vishnu. He has incarnated on earth in the form of Balram. At that time the king returned to earth with Revati, but by then so much time had passed that the length of humans on earth had reduced considerably. At that time Balram married life-sized Revati. However, seeing Revati too tall, Balram reduced her height by pressing her with the tip of a plough, and made her like normal women.

Sanatan is discussed in Atharvaveda

While mentioning the word 'Sanatan' in Atharva Veda, it is said that Sanatanmenmahuratadya syatpunarnavah. Ahoraatre Pra Jayate Anyo Anyasya Rupayo: Sanatan means that which never gets old, always remains new, like the cycle of day and night remains always new. Sanatana is also described in the Buddhist text Mahavagga, where it is called Subhasita Suttam in Suttanipata. Truth is an inner power, which is eternal.

What is Sanatan? It is also mentioned in Buddhist texts.

According to Acharya Pandit Vinod Shastri in Delhi, it is said in the religious scriptures that Dharayate Iti Dharma: That is, whatever is followed is religion. This religion is true and eternal. There is no direct mention of the word Sanatan in Rigveda. Sanatan is a Sanskrit word. This has been mentioned in detail in Bhagwat Geeta. Sanatan means eternal, eternal, indestructible and infinite.

Arjun talked about Sanatan Dharma

According to ISKCON Educational Services, an organization that propagates devotion to Krishna, Sanatana in Hinduism means performing one's duty. Julius J. Lipner, Emeritus Professor of Cambridge University, in his book 'Hindus: Their Religious Beliefs and Practices' states that Arjuna used Sanatana Dharma in the Bhagavad Gita. He told Lord Krishna that when evil comes in the family, the Sanatan Dharma of the entire family is destroyed.

Krishna told Arjun what Sanatan is

Pandit Vinod Shastri says that Lord Shri Krishna has also told about Sanatan Dharma in Geeta. Krishna says-
It is cut, burned, wetted and dried.
It is eternal, omnipresent, stable, immovable and eternal.
That is, O Arjun! Which cannot be penetrated, which cannot be burnt, which does not dry and which does not get wet, which does not change its position. Such sattvik qualities are present only in God. That power which is full of these divine qualities. He deserves to be called eternal.

Mention of Sanantan in the words of Buddha

Some scholars believe that Sanatana is derived from 'Sanatana' of the Pali texts, which is spiritual and eternal. The language of the Tripitaka, the scripture of Theravada Buddhists, is Pali. Dhammo Sanantano is mentioned at many places in it. This book contains the sayings of Buddha and stories related to him. Pali is considered closest to Sanskrit. In ancient India, common people spoke only in Pali and Prakrit languages. At the same time, Sanskrit was considered the language of scholars and government.

Ambedkar said- European scholars coined this word

In the book 'Riddles in Hinduism: An Exposition to Enlighten the Mass', Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar says that the word Sanatan came into existence because of European scholars who believed that Hindu civilization was stable. However, most Hindu people do not believe in Sanatana. The British gave the White Man Burden Theory.
He believed that he was out to civilize the world. That is why he coined the word Sanatan with the mentality of dividing Hindus against the British rule.


Role of Arya Samaj, Ramakrishna Mission

In the 19th century, organizations like Arya Samaj and Ramakrishna Mission played an important role in shaping Sanatan. Swami Vivekananda's belief in humanity as the supreme religion and Arya Samaj's opposition to idol worship told people about Sanatan Dharma in true sense. This religion was based on humanity and service.

The former President also explained the meaning of Sanatan

Former President Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan had said in his book 'Hindu View of Life' that the people living on the banks of the Indus river believed in Sanatan Dharma. Since foreigners did not know how to pronounce the word Sindhu, they started calling it Hindu. Whereas in Tamil literature Sanatan was called Aram. Here Sanatan means moral values ​​and the art of living. Europeans deliberately portrayed the Aryans as being of foreign origin, so that they could appear civilized.


Madras High Court had explained the meaning of Sanatan

In the hearing of a petition in March this year, the Madras High Court had described Sanatan Dharma as a set of 'eternal duties'. These duties include many duties like duty towards the nation, duty of the king towards his subjects, duty towards his parents and gurus, taking care of the poor. In fact, in September last year, DMK leader and Tamil Nadu government minister Udhayanidhi Stalin had compared Sanatan Dharma to dengue and malaria and had talked about eliminating Sanatan Dharma. Regarding the controversial statement, an organization named Hindu Munnani had filed a petition demanding the removal of DMK leaders from the post.
