Abstract

What is considered as a religion today is precisely one of the oldest living civilisations, which predominantly scans the Asian subcontinent known as Hinduism or Hindu Dharma. This school of thought emphasises the spiritual importance of the Self and World. Fundamentally, it questions the identity of Self and offers interesting insights into the interplay of self and world. As a way of life, it endows with pluralistic and multicultural perspectives and illustrates a context-based approach through its classical literary pieces.
