The highest knowledge (sattvika) is the only one of knowledge which a person sees one undivided imperishable reality within all diverse living beings. But the knowledge which a person sees all living beings are different and separated each other is the lower knowledge (rajasika).

- Hindu religion offers clear vision of the Truth. It also offers clear view of life and a way of life to own up the vision. Hindu Religion or Sanatan Dharma is Indigenous Religion of Bharat. It is very much different or unique compared to all new religions of the world, which are dated during the last two/three millennia. In today’s world, there are so many “Neo Religions”. If one looks at the history of these religions, one will find that  These ‘neo religions’ were started/founded by an individual at a specific time and specific place.  When these religions emerged, they disturbed pre-existing religions and cultural traditions of that time. Not only they disturbed then, some of them continue to disturb now also.
SANATANA DHARMA AS A MAJOR WORLD CIVILIZATION
We will look at Sanatana Dharma (or Hindu Dharma or more popularly Hinduism) as a major world Civilization.
The emerging world order
The world today has shrunk into a global village. Ease of Air travel, the Internet, Cable TV that is available around the world, migration of people, have all radically transformed the world, within the last 50 years. There is both an economic and a cultural transfusion, occurring around the world that is clearly flattening the world rapidly. Technology has revolutionized it, and nations today are more inter-dependent than they ever were before. At the same time, the import of culture en masse is also at work causing a diffusion of the boundaries between one nation and another. India is rapidly “westernizing” adopting the cultural icons of the West, such as capitalism, competition, consumerism and entertainment. Simultaneously some 20+ million Americans are now practicing Yoga, and aspiring for some form of spiritual practice. Indian Gurus and Acharyas are also traveling around the world, sharing their special wisdom, method and practice with all who will listen.
World peace or peace on Earth
Is an ideal state of freedom, peace, and happiness among and within all nations and peoples. This ideal of world non-violence provides a basis for peoples and nations to willingly cooperate, either voluntarily or by virtue of a system of governance that prevents warfare. While different cultures, religions, philosophies, and organizations may have differing concepts about how such an ideal state might come about, they have in common this ideal of a cessation of all hostility amongst all humanity.
Saraswati (Sanskrit: सरस्वती, Sarasvatī) is the Hindu goddess of knowledge, music, arts, wisdom and learning. She is a part of the trinity (Tridevi) of Saraswati, Lakshmi and Parvati. All the three forms help the trinity of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva to create, maintain and regenerate-recycle the Universe respectively.
The earliest known mention of Saraswati as a goddess is in Rigveda. She has remained significant as a goddess from the Vedic period through modern times of Hindu traditions. Some Hindus celebrate the festival of Vasant Panchami (the fifth day of spring) in her honour, and mark the day by helping young children learn how to write alphabets on that day. The Goddess is also revered by believers of the Jain religion of west and central India as well as some Buddhist sects.
