is not simply a regressive return to medieval Hindu values, but a rediscovery of the both
the future as well as the past. It includes discovering the importance of Hindu Yoga,
Vedanta, Ayurveda, Vedic astrology, classical Indian art and culture, and the Hindu view
of society and government.
A number of Hindus in
India are working to make Hinduism more a living presence in the country, with a social
and cultural, as well as religious influence. This I would call the "new
Hinduism," those who are embracing Hinduism from both a point of tradition and one of
modernity, recognizing its relevance for the entire world.
For example, the new Hinduism is bringing back traditional Hindu accounts of history, like
the rejection of the Aryan invasion theory, which recent archeological in India, like the
rediscovery of the Sarasvati river, are also proving.
