Hinduism is a religious tradition that originated in the Indian subcontinent. Hinduism is often referred to as Sanatana Dharma by its practitioners, a Sanskrit phrase meaning "the eternal law". Dr. Radhakrishnan notes: "Hinduism is not just a faith. It is the union of reason and intuition that can not be defined but is only to be experienced. Evil and error are not ultimate. There is no Hell, for that means there is a place where God is not, and there are sins which exceed his love".

Once, while moving about the country, Rishabha was in Brahmavarta. There, in an assembly of sages, where a large audience was present to listen to him, Rishabha delivered a sermon especially to teach his sons.
The Rishabha-Gita belongs to the class of Hindu religious literature known as the Puranas. The word ‘Purana' in Sanskrit means ‘a narrative of ancient times'.
Supreme bliss cannot be experienced through contact of the senses with their objects. The supreme state is that in which the mind is transcended through one-pointed enquiry.

I, the pure, stainless and infinite Consciousness beyond Maya, look upon this body in action like the body of another.
Oh Rama! The enquiry into the Self of the nature of ‘Who am I?' is the fire which burns up the seeds of the evil tree which is the mind.
Consciousness, which is undivided, imagines to itself desirable objects and runs after them. It is then known as the mind. Transcendence of the mind.
