A manual for life in the modern world.

Hinduism and the serenity of age

Hinduism stands apart from all others when it comes to evangelism and its view of the place and value of other revelations. It is the oldest of the traditions, and this is perhaps what enables it to look on the children of the faith with a benevolent eye. This is not to say that Hinduism sees them as equals, but it does not see them as infidels, faithless people in need of saving. Hinduism possesses the Sanatana Dharma, the ‘Eternal [hence Primordial] Law’. The younger revelations possess this law, but in partial form, and are therefore in error but due mostly to the progress of the disorder that characterizes this age, and therefore there is no point in trying to convert them to something that is beyond their reach. They have that which they ought to have, and if they were not meant to have the revelations they possess, the Avataras, such as Christ, would not have been given to them. And for these reasons, even if the truth they possess is partial, their error does not exclude them from salvation, even if their spiritual conditions is less favorable–and sometimes downright deplorable–hence the use of the term “barbarians” to describe the West.
