In Sanskrit, Sanātana means- ancient and eternal. Our Vedas are eternal, and our culture and values are ancient. Hence, the Hindu way of life is referred to as Sanātana Dharma. It was neither started by a prophet nor an organization. It has been there for eternity. The word Hinduism is of very recent origin. The religion had no particular name since there was no other religion existed, from which it had to be distinguished. Some scholars of present-day Hinduism like to call it Sanātana dharma. However this word does not refer to a specific religion, but only to ancient practices of eternal value.
