There is lot of uproar and debate on Sanatana Dharma in India. In physics and chemistry, the law of conservation of energy states that the total energy of an isolated system remains constant; it is said to be conserved over time. Energy can neither be created nor destroyed; rather, it can only be transformed or transferred from one form to another.

Indian Philosophies (Darshanas) believe in the eternity of the existence as union of Purusha and Prakriti. We believe in the eternity of Universal Soul (Ishwara) and Individual Soul (Jeeva). We believe in rebirth theory by evolution of the life in 8.4 million species excelled from fish to Human on the earth. 

As nothing can be destroyed, we believe that the individual soul travels from one body to another. But to justify the inequality of one’s physical, mental, social and cultural state in present birth, the ancient sages propagated the theory of karma (action) and declared that the difference is as an outcome of our actions in previous births. We have been told to be careful of the actions in present life so that we can improve upon our status of life in next birth. If somebody wants to quit the cycle of birth and rebirth, there is a path of renunciation, to acquire knowledge of true self and merge into the universal soul the Ishwara. The eternity of the soul/energy therefore doesn’t destroyed in Indian Sanatan Dharma. But who can prove that the varnas, castes, social customs, rituals, etc, are eternal? None. 

How great is the creation of the earth with biosphere and an average temperature of 17 degrees Celsius that life exists. We are yet to find traces of life on other planets. But in spirituality, all celestial objects are considered as body of the Supreme and therefore there is life in each one of them. The Universe/s are the limbs and the expansions and contractions of it/them is the play of the Almighty. 

Therefore, what is eternal, it can’t be destroyed. The Indian darshanas believe in this eternality of God and its creation, and it is called the Sanatan Dharma. But those who don’t get out of the beliefs of caste system of unequal by birth as upper and lower can’t be called Sanatani. The Varnas are dynamic and history has recorded many interchanges within the system.

It was believed that education would bring awareness amongst the new generation and would kill the demon of inequality but it seems that the educated new generation may be in need of some more time/decades to come out of the illusionary imprisonment of the orthodoxy. 

Yajurveda Shanti Mantra, ॐ पूर्णमदः पूर्णमिदं पूर्णात् पूर्णमुदच्यते। पूर्णस्य पूर्णमादाय पूर्णमेवावशिष्यते॥states energy conservation law in the most fundamental level. वह पूर्ण है, और यह (ब्रह्मांड) पूर्ण है। पूर्ण से पूर्ण की प्राप्ति होती है। पूर्ण से पूर्ण (ब्रह्मांड) की पूर्णता लेते हुए भी वह पूर्ण रूप में रहता है। That is the whole, this is the whole. From wholeness emerges wholeness. Wholeness coming from wholeness, wholeness still remains.

Because, there is only one platform (अद्वैत), one without second, the Brahman. 

There is difference amongst the three: Brahman, Brahmana and Bhramana. Brahman is eternal. Brahmana is orthodox religion and Bramana is illusions around which we wander.😊

NB: If Soul is not energy in the scientific sense the law of conservation doesn’t apply to soul.
