    With recent inquiries regarding basics of religions... I thought...basics?

    Then I thought can you tell anyone about a religion in a paragraph?

    A sentence?

    How about two words?

    Tao....the way
    Christianity....Jesus Saves
    Judaism.....G!d is
    Islam...final Prophet (five pillars?)
    Hinduism
    Buddhism
    Bahai
    Zoroastrianism ...One God
    Shintoism
    Wicca




    None of those are perfect.... I need help. (But you knew that!)

    My religion....my way. (What resonates)

    Hinduism: Sanatana Dharma

    Sanatana means eternal. Unfortunately, there is no single word translation for dharma into English. It is the sum of cosmic order/duties/law/conduct.

    The full expression is "Satyam vada, dharmam chara" (Speak truth, go by dharma). But I think 'Satyam vada' is superfluous, since speaking truth by itself is a part of dharma.
