It is the essence of experience. Brahman is rasa, the ultimate essence of all existence and all life and being. There is another meaning, a more literary one, namely that it is ‘literary delectation’ or ‘poetic sentiment’.

Hindutva embrases all the departments of thought and. Beauty has emerged as one of the most hotly contested subjects in current discussions on art and culture. After more than half a century of suspicion and interrogation, beauty's resurgence in visual practice and discourse since the late s has engaged some of the most influential artists and writers on art.

From the avant-garde to the conceptual era, anti-aesthetic strategies have resisted. According to the Hindu view, there are four goals of life on earth, and each human being should aspire to all four.

Everyone should aim for dharma, or righteous living; artha, or wealth acquired through the pursuit of a profession; kama, or human and sexual love; and, finally, moksha, or spiritual salvation.

The words Hindu, Hindutva and Hinduism are not synonymous. They are different with distinctive connotation. A Hindu is one who is an inheritor or adherent of the spiritual parampara (linage or tradition) that has its origin in bharatavarsha (the Indian Subcontinent) while Hinduism indicates the conglomerate of all spiritual practices, beliefs, scriptures, Gods, after life, rituals, mode of.
