|India must wake
up to her destiny, which is to revive her spiritual culture and share it for the benefit
of all mankind. This requires that the intellectual elite of the country cease denigrating
the soul of India in hasty and superficial attempts to be modern and humanitarian. It
requires a new Hinduism that corrects the social evils of the older Hinduism while
maintaining that greater spiritual basis of the tradition.
Such a new Hinduism or awakening to Sanatana Dharma, the Universal Tradition, is
essential not only for India but for the entire world. Without reconnecting with our older
spiritual traditions and their yogic sciences we will not have the foundation to move
forward to a real enlightened age for humanity. Fortunately India appears to be beginning
this awakening, however slow, difficult or painful it may be.
