Dharma Sanga: Following a Spiritual Preceptor

Art by A. Manivel
Five Parenting Guidelines or "Pancha Kutumba Sadhana" describe the principles that guide fathers and mothers in setting strong religious examples that nurture children and teach them to follow the path of dharma and thus pass Hinduism to the next generation.

5. Dharma Sanga: Following a Spiritual Preceptor

Loving fathers and mothers should choose a preceptor, a traditional satguru, and lineage to follow. They support their lineage with all their heart, energy and service. He in turn provides them clear guidance for a successful life, material and religious.
