On the other shore of the waters, in the center of the Earth, on the ridge of Heaven, greater than the great, by luminous seed having entered into the lights of the senses, the Lord of Creation stirs within the child. Mahanarayana Upanishad I.1

There is only One Divinity hidden in all beings, who pervades all, the Self of all beings. He is the overseer of all actions, who dwells in all beings, the witness, the sole consciousness beyond all attributes. Svetasavatara Upanishad VI.11

The Self is the Divinity that exists in all directions, born in the beginning, he moves within the child. He alone has been born and he alone will be born. He faces all creatures whose face is to every side. Svetasavatara Upanishad II.16

Who One only like a magician rules all the worlds with his ruling powers, who One only exists in the arising and birth of all beings: those who know Him become immortal. Svetasavatara Upanishad III.1 Sanatana Dharma and the Religions of the World

Sanatana Dharma as a universal tradition has room for all faiths and all religious and spiritual practices regardless of the time or country of their origin. Yet it places religious and spiritual teachings in their appropriate place relative to the ultimate goal of Self-realization, to which secondary practices are subordinated. Sanatana Dharma also recognizes that the greater portion of human religious aspiration has always been unknown, undefined, and outside of any institutionalized belief.

Sanatana Dharma thereby gives reverence to individual spiritual experience over any formal religious doctrine. Wherever the Universal Truth is manifest, there is Sanatana Dharma - whether it is in a field of religion, art or science, or in the life of a person or community. Wherever the Universal Truth is not recognized, or is scaled down and limited to a particular group, book or person, even if done so in the name of God, there Sanatana Dharma ceases to function, whatever the activity is called.
