VAIDIKA is a Sanskrit word that stands for dharma, universal values that are applicable to all people at all times.
A universal value, for example, is ahimsa, non-injury. No being wants to be hurt. Every being runs away from hurt.
This is something very obvious and known to all, yet sometimes we do hurt. We say things that are not pleasing, we easily lie, we take advantage of other people, we compete, we convert people, and so on.
For a person that is more mature, a value such as ahimsa becomes very important, even to such a degree that eventually one does not want to compromise ones values any more. One has understood that if I play with fire, I get burned.

Vaidika also honors all being through rituals, referred to as yajnas and pujas.
Life lives on life. I don’t take anything for granted. For a Vaidika, it is important to honor all beings including the elements, the sun and moon, forefathers, spiritual teachers, people, animals and the plant kingdom.
Vaidika comes from that which is Veda.
For a Vaidika, there is only One.
