    Here we have the prime directives in Sanatan Dharma(hinduism)

    1)
    In The Bhagawad Gita, sloka 20, Chapter 10, Lord Krishna says,
    "I am the Self seated in the heart of all creatures. I am the beginning, the middle and the very end of all beings". All beings have, therefore to be treated alike

    2) Karma Yoga:
    . Karma Yoga is selfless service unto humanity. The important point is to serve humanity without any attachment or egoism. The central teaching of the Gita is non-attachment to work. Lord Krishna says: "Work incessantly. Your duty is to work but not expect the fruits thereof."

    3) Attain Moksha-going to heaven so to speak, but this can only occur if the individual leads of a good human being.

    Also have read that Lord Ram killed someone because he read vedas,well falsehood has been exposed:

    http://forums.sulekha.com/forums/coffeehouse/lord-rama-and-shambuka.htm
    Also we have Lord Rama staying in cleaner Shrabris house:
    So it is clear this falsehood of killing an innocent person is made up after, and does not reconcile to Lord Rama and Shabri

    Well in humane terms no, each as an individual human being has to be treated as an equal human being, otherwise no Moksha or going to heaven so to speak

    • I completely disagree with you, these are jobs, every society has a social order, without social order, society cannot function, ,if you think otheriwse kindly let me know.
    • In the older days there were basic jobs like those you have quoted, what do u propose no job titles, each function or activity has a name for it, problem is to practice humanity as Sanatan Dharma states, it all comes back to attaining Moksha which u cannot attain if you discriminate.
    • The social evil which u state is not in scriptures, basic fact, those corrupt individuals create for themselves, again any society has jobs, Sanatan Dharma again prime directive to achieve moksha, ,can u please explain how can one attain moksha if one discrimiates,
    • Bottom line Sanatan Dharma teaches to practice humanity and thats a fact, its there in scriptures thats a fact!
    • Sat Sri Akal to you as well

    There have been individuals such Sri Ramanuja, who ventured to turn society to correct path, there has also been Sri Ramanand ,who also ventured to steer society to the right path

    Here are some more verses that expose the truth of Sanatan Dharma and that it teaches to practice humanity:

    Where does it state to exclude any body.

    Again there are functions and acivities which have to be carried out, someone has to clean, someone has to teach someone has to preach, these are basic facts, to attain these goals one has to study and learn and achieve, but e.g. in an office there are cleaners, middle managers and directors, now the office cannot function without the cleaner noe director, and so despite the obvious differences in pay which is a fact of life, all workers working together attain society working for the better.

    Can you provide your alternative please.

    Function well, ok so u agree with that but not order, now what is meant by order is next point, this is classify the functions, there has to be some rules in society, we have police force why, there has to be some order, but this does not deny anyone right to become whover they wnat given there efforts.

    dogra8 ji I believe you may want to delete one of the posts as it is a repeat. As you appear new, if it helps, you can do the "delete" by going to edit and the option to delete will show up.

    Appreciate your answer to my post but no urgency. Think about the following when you answer as well,

    Class, order and caste system are not fiction these are a reality people who claim to be Hindus practice implicitly or explicitly. Whether it is related to correct following of Hinduism principles is not for me to say.

    Sat Sri Akal.

    Thank you for the delete, ,my mistake.

    Again social evil of caste exists,, i am talking about the prime directives which state to practice humanity and that is a fact.
    A number of Individuals in Hindu faith regard themselves as only one grouping : HUMAN, of course we each have different jobs so are functions are different but we respect each other as equals as per Hindu scriptures

    Divine light results inheart of all beings, so how can we discriminate, we accept all as equals and those that do nto will not attain moksha

    well every society has prisons, there is order through police force and law, invaring degrees.






    hmmm getting down to small points, garbage collector has a different function, so does rishi, only by working together can society fucntion for the better, one is not humanely superior or inferior, payment terms is another matter, but is a stage of human development that is with us, karma yoga of selfless service is ideal but that will take a long time in human development if that is democratic choice society develops towards

    Point is what do u call arrangement of functions there has to be some arrangement for the functions to get together,e.g. back to office, all functions work together we listen to our bosses as they, generally, have more knowledge, but we do not demean anyone as inferior or superior we are equal humanely and we treat each with equality of humane dignity, e.g. say good morning to cleaner and director, do not disntinguish.

    dogra8 ji that is exactly what Sikhism says too on this point.

    Does not mean me or other Sikhs accepting of any such scriptures in total. We do not use such as a message from a God like creature or God or God's messenger as none exist for Sikhism. Whether their names are Krishna, Shiv or Ram or anyone else.

    Awal Allah Noor - Mohinder Singh Bhalla.
