Actions Caused By Gods Or Supernatural Powers On Human Beings In Hinduism – Adhidaivika

In Hinduism, Adhidaivika is the term used for relating to or proceeding from gods or from supernatural powers. Adhidaivika is all that is caused by daivika (non-human or super-human) powers and over which human beings have no control, viz., the planets, spirits, gods, yakshas and other such beings. Though the belief in such super human elements operating on living beings has been waning, the belief is still strong that the planets have a control and influence over human behavior and endeavors. The science of astrology, though said to be a science of approximation, has wide acceptance because some of its predictions have an almost mathematical accuracy. Adhidaivika is, according to Sushruta Samhita, one of the three types of suffering experience by living beings. The Adhidaivika diseases are also of two kinds, namely, providential and natural (daiva balapravritta and svabhava pravritti).

What Is Adharma In Hinduism?

Adharma, like dharma, is associated with one’s ashrama (stage of life) and varna (social status). Loosely, Adharma in Hinduism can be defined as unrighteousness. It is indefinable as the term dharma (which stands for individual values and social ideals). Dharma is an ethico-social concept, a product of society and social institutions. Dharma and Adharma are like punya and papa, merit and wrong acts, terms referring respectively to what is good and what is bad for others. The concepts of dharma and adharma depend on tradition and custom. Even among the eternally valid values like truth and non-violence, it is difficult to come to any conclusion in a dilemma when they are mutually conflicting. Telling a lie is not adharma if it is done to save a pious and innocent man. Related Quotes On Dharma From Various Hindu Scriptures
