Hinduism is the world’s oldest religion with roots and customs dating back more than 4,000 years. Dharma is an important term for Hindus. In Hinduism, it means ‘duty, ‘virtue’, ‘morality’, Correct action in accordance with dharma is also understood as service to humanity and to God. The true Guru and Shishya relationship is very important in Hinduism and should be one of respect, and also open to interaction.
