Hinduism Can Save The World #1

When we celebrate the divine within

Updated Dec 22-17

This page is part of a submission to a global forum established to help reform global governance and an alternative to the current model that is clearly failing.

It is only when you understand yourself from an internal perspective that you will understand Hinduism, for it is a celebration of life and a way of living life in harmony with nature. Few people realise that thousands of years ago before Persia, Greece and Rome became empires, Hinduism was the primary influence in the world. It is from India that we get the roots of today's science, technology and language for it is the mother of nations and civilisation as we know it.

There are masses of people today who believe they are educated, who know the world and the differences between right and wrong. Yet they remain unhappy because they believe what they've been taught within an unjust system where philosophies have been invented to justify the appalling behaviour of colonialism and modern economics where power triumphs yet victories are ultimately empty for the winners and devastating for the losers.

The uneducated and morally justified continue to suffer and often despise India and Hinduism as they are so attached to their ignorance and artificially inflated sense of self superiority. This ignorance and bad attitude toward life is destroying our planet and sending human civilisation toward extinction. Those in the developed world look at suicide and say how bad it is, but so few seem to care that we are through our attitudes towards life, committing mass suicide and dragging Hinduism along as well.

The simple difference between Hinduism and Abrahamic religions is that Hinduism requires no beliefs, Hinduism teaches that the human body and mind are the most marvellous and sophisticated gadgets on this planet. Because our sense perception is only experienced within our own minds, the universe as we perceive it actually exists within our own consciousness. Simply put, what we see around us is simply a reflection of our internal state of being.

In contrast, the Abrahamic religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam all require that people believe in something unknown and imperceptible that cannot be scientifically validated. A part of this belief package that must be subscribed to is that the world is external to our consciousness which causes the population to see themselves as something separate from the world, separate from nature and wanting to control life. But in doing so, while physical technologies and comforts have been achieved, there is no internal balance and this is what is driving civilisation to its own destruction.

1. Leo Tolstoy (1828-1910)
"Hindus and Hinduism will one day rule the world, because this is a combination of knowledge and wisdom".

2. Herbert Wells (1846 - 1946):
"Until the effectiveness of Hinduism is restored, how many generations will suffer atrocities and life will be cut off, then one day the entire world will be attracted to it, on that day there will be a heart change and on that day the world will be inhabited.

3. Albert Einstein (1879-1955):
"I understand that through his intelligence and awareness he did that which the Jews could not do. In Hinduism it is the power that can lead to peace."

4. Huston Smith (1919):
"The faith which is upon us and this is better than us in the world, then it is Hinduism. If we open our hearts and minds for it, then it will be good for us".

5. Michael Nostradamus (1503 - 1566):
"Hinduism will become the ruler religion in Europe, but the famous city of Europe will become the Hindu capital".

6. Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970):
"I read Hinduism and realized that it is for the religion of all the world and all mankind." Hinduism will spread throughout Europe and in Europe, big thinkers of Hinduism will emerge. One day it will come that Hindus will be the real stimulus of the world. ".

7. Gosta Lobon (1841 - 1931):
"Hindus speak of peace and reconciliation. I invite Christians to appreciate the faith of reform."

8. Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950):
"The entire world will accept Hindu religion one day and if it can not even accept the real name it will accept it by name only." West will accept Hinduism one day and Hindu will be the religion of those who have studied in the world ".

9. Johann Geith (1749 - 1832):
"We all have to accept Hinduism now or later and this is the real religion. If I say no to Hindu, I will not feel bad, I accept this right thing."

The Abrahamic religions are all about domination and this idea is a misinterpretation of Vedic scriptures taken out of context and reshaped for political expediency and other environmental factors. In contrast, Hinduism is about harmonising with nature and working to understand the internal nature of being human which amongst other things provides a permanent solution to suffering referred to as liberation or enlightenment.

In our race to self-destruction we have reached a stage our evolution where if we want to maintain our current standard of living, we need several more planets to provide the natural resources. We also have to consider that the wealthiest 20% of the worlds population consume 80% of all produce and 1/3 of the world population remains hungry. Hinduism teaches how to live comfortably without destroying the world whereas capitalism and the free market economy which is the spawn of the Abrahamic beliefs is actually destroying us.

Hinduism is based on a science which is directly perceivable by all citizens and it requires very little in the way of administration. This allows citizens to become explorers within their own personal universe and when this occurs, a new age of peace and prosperity for all will eventuate, so why do we continue marching towards extinction?

Unfortunately, without understanding mantra saasthram, tantra saasthram, yantra saasthram and then their application with aagama saasthram , one cannot explain the figurines of any ancient Hindu temple and any historicity associated with them. All the four are difficult to understand without a guide teacher aka guru meaning education needs to be reshaped on the gurukul model.

    Nagendra S. Rao NZYogi please do keep me in the loop. 🙏 We have corresponded before though you may not remember.
    Hinduism and the world desperately need sober, professional and knowledgeable people lije your good self. Heaven knows.

    Sadly too many people are into socio-cultural-religious chauvinism in these matters. Hinduism nee Sanatana Dharma is so much a nice and beyond such gauche pettiness.
    Shambhave Namah
    Nagendra S. Rao

    Dev Kainthola: Those born as Hindus need to realize that and strive to make things happen that way. It’s a win-win all the way, and the major stumbling block is a deep-rooted lose-lose mind-set.

    NZYogi: I proposed this idea in 2017 to a European think tank looking for solutions to our current crisis and unfortunately the format was rather limited. However many of the pages on my blog site promote this idea

    Shivashankar Rao: Will Durant: “Perhaps in return for conquest, arrogance and spoliation, India will teach us the tolerance and gentleness of the mature mind, the quiet content of the unacquisitive soul, the calm of the understanding spirit, and a unifying, a pacifying love for all living things.”
    Sir Monier-Williams: “The Hindus, according to him, were Spinozists more than 2,000 years before the advent of Spinoza, and Darwinians many centuries before Darwin and Evolutionists many centuries before the doctrine of Evolution was accepted by scientists of the present age.”
    Mahatma Gandhi: “Hinduism has made marvellous discoveries in things of religion, of the spirit, of the soul. We have no eye for these great and fine discoveries. We are dazzled by the material progress that western science has made. Ancient India has survived because Hinduism was not developed along material but spiritual lines. “India is to me the dearest country in the world, because I have discovered goodness in it. It has been subject to foreign rule, it is true. But the status of a slave is preferable to that of a slave holder.”
    Carl Sagan (the late scientist), on the dance of Nataraja : “It is the clearest image of the activity of God which any art or religion can boast of.”
    Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan : “Hinduism is not just a faith. It is the union of reason and intuition that cannot 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.
    Sri Aurobindo: Hinduism…..gave itself no name, because it set itself no sectarian limits; it claimed no universal adhesion, asserted no sole infallible dogma, set up no single narrow path or gate of salvation; it was less a creed or cult than a continuously enlarging tradition of the Godward endeavour of the human spirit. An immense many-sided and many staged provision for a spiritual self-building and self-finding, it had some right to speak of itself by the only name it knew, the eternal religion, santana dharma….”

    NZYogi 🙏 I love that the Dharma requires no beliefs yet sufficient faith to test out teachings that have been passed on through the millennia and seen as containing great merit by succeeding generations. The outcome is knowledge and appreciation for life.

    Nagendra S. Rao: Shivashankar Rao swami everything you say above i!s valid except the inanities and twaddle of the suicide fetishist, Muslim pandering obsequious beggar Gandhi.

    Shivashankar Rao: “After a study of some forty years and more of the great religions of the world, I find none so perfect, none so scientific, none so philosophic, and none so spiritual as the great religion known by the name of Hinduism. The more you know it, the more you will love it; the more you try to understand it, the more deeply you will value it. Make no mistake; without Hinduism, India has no future. Hinduism is the soil into which India’s roots are struck, and torn of that she will inevitably wither, as a tree torn out from its place. Many are the religions and many are the races flourishing in India, but none of them stretches back into the far dawn of her past, nor are they necessary for her endurance as a nation. Everyone might pass away as they came and India would still remain. But let Hinduism vanish and what is she? A geographical expression of the past, a dim memory of a perished glory, her literature, her art, her monuments, all have Hindudom written across them. And if Hindus do not maintain Hinduism, who shall save it? If India’s own children do not cling to her faith, who shall guard it? India alone can save India, and India and Hinduism are one.” — Annie Besant

    Nathan Katz: Hinduism has a great deal to teach the world. But it will never happen if the first parry is so uninformed as this one.

    NZYogi: Please Nathan, if you think my narrative is so uninformed then can you present a clearer and more in-depth narrative to suit the pallets of our misled and misguided citizens?

    Nagendra S. Rao: Nathan Katz since it is you would you please elaborate a little. It is most unlike and uncharacteristic of you to give categoric replies without qualification. You are well informed on the subject, even if we may differ on matters. 🤔

    Nathan Katz: NZYogi Your claim that “Abrahamic” religions all believe the human and the natural realms are ontologically separate That they are all about dominating nature (and perhaps you would include other humans). These are stereotypes. One infers a view of them as monolithic. Or of any one among them is monolithic. Simply false and inherently condescending. How’s that for a start?

    NZYogi: Nathan Katz This is my point of view based on my observations of reality. Abrahamic religions are focused on belief and not actual knowledge and in fact they have bent over backwards to try and suppress knowledge that would undermine their power. So yes, they are monolithic and they need to go. If you happen to be a believer, I’m not setting out to offend your sensibility yet if this world is to endure we must evolve beyond self-righteousness, we must descend from patriarchal egoism and once more celebrate the Divine feminine that the Abrahamic religions continue to suppress

    Nagendra S. Rao: Nathan Katz ok I am sure about conventional Christianity and Islam (mystical Christianity of Meister Eckhart and Jakob Boehm and Indian tasawuuf Sufism may be different).
    But I have the distinct impression that the Semitic faiths are monolithic in that Iswara is NOT abhinna nimittopadanakarana, unified instrumental and material cause as in Advaita Vedanta???
    Gabriel Arnou-Laujeac, Sanskrit Kannan, Alan Brill, Sthaneshwar Timalsina any thoughts or comments?
    Let me add that on a number of matters related to Judaism I am not so sanguine as I used to be, after discussions with Ra’anan Elozory.
    I have only rudimentarily explored the tzimtzum of Lurianic Kabbalah relationship with the Advaita Vedanta ajatavada there is no Jiva, Jagat or Iswara but only Shuddha Caitanya ekam eva advitiyam.

    Alan Brill: Your use of the term “Abraham faiths” is as reductive, false and ill informed as 19th cent Christian calling all Asian religions as pantheistic, superstition, no human ethics, and immoral. Judaism is not the same as Christianity on most issues. Faith is a christian term. Judaism is about knowledge, practice, and trusting relationship. And Judaism is not the ancient Israelites. Judaism has many trends of panentheism, divine as material cause, and unified oneness. When you stop with the reduction or equating Judaism with Christianity, then Judaism is generally like dvaitan Vaishnava or Shiva Siddhanta with emphasis on deeds not faith, on study of texts that are seen as possesses intrinsic connection, and not connection to the divine in immanent, indwelling, causal, and transcendent forms.

    Gabriel Arnou-Laujeac: If one compare the worst interpretation of the Bible with the best interpretation of the Sruti, of course one can think in black and white and give sliced conclusions (written in brackets I don’t trust/like quotes without any reference). Such a medthodology and parti-pris is not constructive for my point of view, even if many affirmations in NZYogi can be true or felt true or both. Note also that the very idea that the world has to be saved (as the title suggest) suits more the abrahamic frame of thought, than the Sruti ‘s. Others have compared Shankara and Eckhart or Suso, Tauler, Pseudo-Denys the Areopagyte and it gives a more shaded, balanced and powerful comparaison of the best of both “worlds”. Anyway I was not born into Christianism and I’m not a specialist even if I really appreciate the rhenan mystics. I don’t know much either of Judaism to be honest. I know better sufi sages, very deep metaphysicians and poets like Rumi, Ibn Arabi, Hafiz, etc. Om.

    NZYogi: I am writing from the perspective of the fact that we exist and we have the potential to exist far into an end determinants future as a species. It is abundantly clear that the way we’re going as a species is rapidly toward extinction which in many ways is fine as the wheel of samsara turns. Yet we have this collective dream to know our place in the universe and it sure as hell ain’t going to happen if we go extinct.
    In this conversation I’m trying to avoid Dvaita Vedanta, the ideas of Shankara and Eckhart et cetera because so few people know about these characters and their ideas.
    I am attempting to write more from a historical perspective and the fact that we exist with limitless possibilities. Of course I can sit back and laugh at the cosmic joke of human extinction but I think that the majority extinction would represent the most catastrophic failure and disappointment because we all desire success.
    Perhaps instead of using the term Abrahamic, I could have used the term patriarchal society is against matriarchal society that is represented within Sanatana Dharma and the idea that success is ultimately the successful continuation of our DNA through time.
    The patriarchal ideals in the modern world are more to do with power and acquisition at any cost, the matriarchal ideals are largely unchanged, a full belly, happiness and the laughter of children.
    We can all appreciate the works of the great philosophers and pundits, of these have to be seen in context of history as it was, not as it was taught because the very thrust of education is more to do with acquisition and the accumulation of power at any cost.
    It’s one thing to discuss philosophy, but nothing is more important to meditate, to transcend philosophy and discover the joy within. From there one is in a position to better appreciate philosophies and the context of how we live. Therefore a return to a matriarchal society and an appreciation of the Divine feminine is represented within Sanatana Dharma and is generally called Hinduism, would be a step towards greater sanity and successful human evolution.

    Nagendra S. Rao: Alan Brill your comments covered the gamut of possibilities on / for Judaism.
    //Judaism is not the same as Christianity on most issues. Faith is a christian term. Judaism is about knowledge, practice, and trusting relationship.//
    If Judaism is about knowledge over faith would you / Judaism agree with Adi Samkara Bhagavadpada:
    चित्तस्य शुद्धये कर्म न तु वस्तूपलब्धये ।
    वस्तुसिद्धिर्विचारेण न किंचित्कर्मकोटिभिः ॥ ११ ॥
    cittasya śuddhaye karma na tu vastūpalabdhaye |
    vastusiddhirvicāreṇa na kiṃcitkarmakoṭibhiḥ || 11 ||
    11. Work leads to purification of the mind, not to perception of the Reality. The realisation of Truth is brought about by discrimination and not in the least by ten million of acts.
    अर्थस्य निश्चयो दृष्टो विचारेण हितोक्तितः ।
    न स्नानेन न दानेन प्राणायमशतेन वा ॥ १३ ॥
    arthasya niścayo dṛṣṭo vicāreṇa hitoktitaḥ |
    na snānena na dānena prāṇāyamaśatena vā || 13 ||
    13. The conviction of the Truth is seen to proceed from reasoning upon the salutary counsel of the wise, and not by bathing in the sacred waters, nor by gifts, nor by hundreds of Prāṇāyāmas (control of the vital force).
    It seems unlikely from my knowledge of the required karmata emphasis of Orthodox professing Jewish friends.
    You yourself say ‘Judaism is generally like dvaitin Vaishnava or Shiva Siddhanta with emphasis on deeds not faith’. Madhvas have to do karmas, the Advatins for those with adhikara do not have to do any rites, pujas or rituals.
    But then you also say //Judaism is not the ancient Israelites. Judaism has many trends of pantheism, divine as material cause, and unified oneness.//
    This seems to agree with Adi Samkara Bhagavadpada’s abhinna nimittopadanakarana / unitary / integral material and instrumental cause. Obviously Madhvas who accept Srsti and Jiva, Jagat and Iswara as real and NOT mithya and sublatable do not agree.
    Does Judaism then have many mutually contradictory strains within it like Hinduism nee Sanatana Dharma. I did not think so, but I stand to correction.
    //study of texts that are seen as possessing intrinsic connection, and not connection to the divine in immanent, indwelling, causal, and transcendent forms.//
    This has strong elements of Purva Mimamsa attitudes on Veda Pramana and eternality of Sanskrit / Samskrita Bhasha and Veda Vakyas. Unlike conventional / populist understanding Advaita has no such definitive reality and eternality of the Veda vakya though this is the party line popular teaching.
    But then Madhwas, Shankarites, Ramanujavadis, Vallabhavadis and Nimbarkavadis are all Hindus nee Sanatana Dharmis. 😄😌😇

    Nagendra S. Rao: NZYogi Well said.
    Shambhave Namah
    Nagendra S. Rao

    Aditya Tyagi: Since the title of the original article is “Hinduism Can Save The World,” it makes me wonder if a plausible argument can be made for “X Can Save The World” where X is either Judaism, Christianity, or Islam and various sects thereof. 😀

    NZYogi: Aditya Tyagi I am sure that X could unify the world and this is the guiding principle of religious institutions however within all these institutions there are power struggles for dominance and control. They are more about economics and control of resources with a bureaucratic class to prevent people from ‘pure spirituality’. Within Wahhabi Islam, the Sufi is irrelevant.
    Should one of these sects gain control, the nature of the game would change slightly but it would be the same game with the same eventual outcome because as we have seen these sects are prone to division and competition between each other.
    Within Sanatana Dharma (Hinduism), there is no desire to possess or control the world, the desire is to know the world and in effect manifest our world environment as an eternal paradise dominated by happiness instead of fear and conflict.

    Aditya Tyagi: Thanks for your reply. I agree with everything you say regarding power and control within each X religion. My view is that any religion which explicitly differentiates between an insider and outsider is fundamentally flawed: Jew/goyim, Christian/non-Christian, and Muslim/kafir respectively with the insider having a “special” status with Yahweh/”God”/”G-d”/Allah with the outsider being seen as inferior or deficient in some way.
    In the case of Islam, this exists in all forms of Islam whether it be Sunni, Shia, Ahmadiya, Sufi, Ismaili, and others. They all view the kafir as inferior. Not to mention the indelible conflict as to the succession of Muhammad between Sunnis and Shia which cannot ever be resolved. So whenever I hear apologists for Islam claim “Islam is not a monolith” then either they have been duped or they are trying to dupe me.
    With Christianity, those who don’t believe in blood sacrifice of Christ are destined for hell.
    Within Judaism, I see all kinds of strange mental gymnastics regarding practice, faith, relationship. As long as the non-Jew has some “inferior” status to a Jew, then I’m not convinced this is a path for saving the world. And I haven’t even bothered getting into all the deep theology and philosophy but that’s probably not necessary.
    So yes, I think your claim that Hinduism can save the world since it does not suffer from power/control issues and/or insider/outsider issues at all. As a Hindu, I couldn’t care less if someone is on the path of Vedanta, Kashmir Shaivism, Gaudiya Vaishnavism, Dvaita Vedanta, Dvaita-Advaita Vedanta, etc. They aren’t “outsiders” to me and I’m not an “outsider” to them. As long as we are trying to live in accordance with Dharma and not playing identity politics to the max then that’s what matters.

    NZYogi: Well said 🙏

    Nagendra S. Rao: NZYogi //Aditya Tyagi … Within Sanatana Dharma (Hinduism), there is no desire to possess or control the world, the desire is to know the world and in effect manifest our world environment as an eternal paradise dominated by happiness instead of fear and conflict.//
    Not quite, but more than good enough for the common person’s understanding. There are higher levels of cognition in Hinduism, at least in Advaita Vedanta.
    You might want to study Swami Vivekananda’s Jnana Yoga, available for free download, on the illusory nature of the Coming of the Millennium.
    In general all sects of Hinduism have no use for the Coming of the Millennium which is a quintessential Christian, Islamic and (possibly) Jewish concept.
    You are right in that Hinduism seeks to know the world to see that it is Mithya – apparent and sublatable but not real according to Vedanta, Empty according to Buddhism.
    In Hinduism there is absolutely NO desire ‘to manifest our world environment as an eternal paradise dominated by happiness instead of fear and conflict’. Au contraire it is to rise above / transcend the polar opposites of happiness and sadness.
    दु:खेष्वनुद्विग्नमना: सुखेषु विगतस्पृह: |
    वीतरागभयक्रोध: स्थितधीर्मुनिरुच्यते || 2.56||
    duḥkheṣhv-anudvigna-manāḥ sukheṣhu vigata-spṛihaḥ
    vīta-rāga-bhaya-krodhaḥ sthita-dhīr munir uchyate
    duḥkheṣhu—amidst miseries; anudvigna-manāḥ—one whose mind is undisturbed; sukheṣhu—in pleasure; vigata-spṛihaḥ—without craving; vīta—free from; rāga—attachment; bhaya—fear; krodhaḥ—anger; sthita-dhīḥ—enlightened person; muniḥ—a sage; uchyate—
    One whose mind remains undisturbed amidst misery, who does not crave for pleasure, and who is free from attachment, fear, and anger, is called a sage of steady wisdom.
    I am curious how many others are there in your conclave with similar ideas, study and thought to yours.
    Shambhave Namah
    Nagendra S. Rao

    NZYogi: Nagendra S. Rao I must admit to taking some liberty by reading into some facts on Hindu history. It is the longest enduring civilisation having endured for some say over 70k years and it was the mist scientific an technologically advanced. Not only that, Hindu culture survives today despite concerted efforts to destroy it. Add to that Sanatana Dharma is flourishing in most world cities this is some achievement. The historic documents do not speak of this, only the path to liberation. However in contrast to modern imperialist patriarchal society, life under Sanatana Dharma would be much more pleasant. It would not mean an absence of pain, but less suffering with real democracy 🙏🏻

    Rajaram Venkataramani: In both Christianity and Islam, if you don’t follow the path, you are doomed to eternal hell. They divide the humanity in to believers (heaven bound) and non-believers (hell bound). This is fundamental and any cover up pretentious, hypocritical and plain false.
    In Vedanta and Buddhism, like in Science, the goal is to understand the reality. In Vaishnavism, a saiva or sāktā will go to the respective world not hell. Likewise, a saiva will say that a saiva will say a vaishnava will go to Vishnu loka. They may disagree strongly but there’s no eternal damnation.
    The Abrahamic cults must be defanged so that radicalisation is prevented but make no mistake. The poison of eternal hell is integral to these cults.

    Aditya Tyagi: Defanged? I’d go one step further in that they need to be destroyed completely. Absolute adharma does not deserve to exist.

    Nagendra S. Rao: Rajaram Venkataramani the answer about heaven for the believers and hell for the unbelievers / kafir / goyim is not so facile and cut and dried in the case of Judaism. In that sense Alan Brill and Nathan Katz are correct about dissenting from lumping the three Semitic faiths under the general rubric of Abrahamic faiths.
    However I disagree with them and say the term Abrahamic faiths is a convenient handle at the layman level. All 3 do accept Abraham as the Patriarch ftom which their followers ardd descended.

    Aditya Tyagi: No evidence of Abraham as a historical figure. No evidence of a “covenant” of any kind.

    Aditya Tyagi: Nagendra, why do you pissed off when you disagree with something? Do you actualy practice Vedanta or do you just react emotionally because you lack self control?
    Nagendra S. Rao: Aditya Tyagi I strongly disagree. 👹👺😈
    We are trying to have a serious dialogue here shorn of rather superficial, partisan demagoguery. There is a time and place for that c.f. vada / vidanda / jalpa. 😄 THIS IS NOT IT!!! 😣😥😏
    P.S. I don’t believe you are using the word Dharma in the correct sense in thus context. 😣
    Shambhave Namah

    Nagendra S. Rao: NZYogi // Nagendra S. Rao, add to that Sanatana Dharma is flourishing in most world cities this is some achievement.

    Tathastu / So it is / well said. 🙏🏻

    Dev Kainthola NZYogi as said Lao Tsu…. One begins to get cured when one gets tired of being sick ! While near all, from one angle or other, are tired of the sickness, in a hugely compartmentalized world and it’s culture, they are unable to relate to the One Single root.
    If such a message can be conveyed in a jiffy, the solution will begin to appear near overnight!

    NZYogi Nagendra S. Raoi like to think in a new enlightenment they will fade and disappear

    Nagendra S. Rao NZYogi if wishes were horses, beggars would ride.

    Rajaram Venkataramani: Nagendra Judaism is valid and has the right to exist as an avaidika marga. That privilege does not exist for Christianity and Islam. BTW, religion should be a privilege not a right.
    — Rajaram Venkataramani: Aditya l agree with you. When you defang, you destroy the core of an ideology that makes a poisonous binary decision about people based on whether they make an ill-informed decision about A or B. For Christianity and Islam to coexist, they at least need to accept that either one is okay. They cannot do so if they are true to their theology. So, their only correct way forward is to destroy each other.
    Nagendra the faith of a billion or two people should only be destroyed carefully but it’s inevitable. It has been happening over time as their memeplex has evolved in the last millennium or two. All we need to is administer logic in right but strong doses. In fact, it should be done to harmful lndic practices also so that truth can be churned out. As Brahmanas, like good Scientists, our commitment should be to relentless pursuit and promotion of truth more than even happiness.
    Aditya Tyagi: I have no doubt in my mind that Christianity and Islam are Hinduphobic to their core. Regarding Judaism, however, there are several different types (Orthodox, Conservative, Reform, Kabbalah, etc) and each needs to be examined for any inherent and intrinsic Hinduphobic ideas. I am most particularly concerned about Orthodox Judaism being Hinduphobic. We need to do our homework more thoroughly before drawing any conclusions.

    Karthik Venkat: Nagendra S. Rao Sir, the yogis I met at Gangothri had a totally different take on the future of Sanathana Dharma.. but thats not for detailed discussion in a public fb forum. We seem to be approaching end of Kali Yuga and not just 5000 years into it, as we are made to believe.

    Meditation, hata yoga and pranayama are taking the world by storm and more and more of this Knowledge from India, will permeate the world and lead it from Darkness to Light:

    sato ma sad gamaya
    Tamaso ma jyotir gamaya
    Mrtyor ma amritam gamaya


    Lead us from non-being to being
    Lead us from darkness to light
    Lead us from death to immortality

  • Eden

    There are certainly some aspects of Hindu culture that can play leading roles in Western civilisation but somehow it seems like a step backwards and would lose much of our technology

  • Siri

    Hello, This is a nice idea and it could work because it is known amongst some circles of historians that Sanatana Dharma was a primary force across all of Asia in the time before Islam and European colonialism. This history that is emerging like many as being treated as an inconvenient truth in the world were people try to make the world in their own image.

  • Michael

    Hello, interesting and enlightened ideas but how to institute this in the public consciousness?

  • Jamie

    great website. You’re prbably right but the world’s population is too drugged to see it
