This Dark Age

A manual for life in the modern world.

By Daniel Schwindt

NOTICE:
This Dark Age is now available in paperback on Amazon. The print version is MUCH cleaner than this online version, which is largely unedited and has fallen by the wayside as the project has grown. If you’ve appreciated my writing, please consider leaving a review on the relevant paperback volumes. The print edition also includes new sections (Military History, War Psychology, Dogmatic Theology).

Exclusion from temples

One thing that strikes modern believers, Protestants more than Catholics, as bizarre about the Hindu system is the exclusive nature of the places that we associate with public worship. If certain groups are equally accepted in the Hindu doctrine and deserve to approach God in their way, why are they not permitted inside the Temples. But this is to misunderstand the nature of the Temple. Here it is not a place of obligatory worship but a dwelling place of the Divine Presence. It has more in common, therefore, with the Holy of Holies of ancient Jerusalem, which was just as exclusive.
