The author’s attempt in the paper is to present race and religion in global context on the one hand and to analyse the same in Indian perspectives in general and the Hindu outlook in particular on theother hand. The quotes and references from Hindu Scriptures are given in the paper to clearly illustrate the values and ethics in Sanatana Dharma, a synonym used for Hinduism. The meaning and concept of Hinduism can best be known by understanding the types of lives the Hindus live on Indian soil. Also, the significance of this timeless religion can be known when one comes across how Hindus treat the people in humanistic manner. In this context, it is a subject of knowing this truth that the Hinduism has ever been welcoming the arrival of different races and religions and has been adapting and assimilating their good aspects and the eternal values, thus giving another broader outlook and liberal nature of Hindus that make them Indian with pride and dignity.
