Pseudo-Secularism

Hindu dharma is implicitly at odds with monotheistic intolerance. What is happening in India is a new historical awakening... Indian intellectuals, who want to be secure in their liberal beliefs, may not understand what is going on. But every other Indian knows precisely what is happening: deep down he knows that a larger response is emerging even if at times this response appears in his eyes to be threatening.

Hindu nationhood is a dynamic and progressive concept—Mohan Bhagwat

"The concept of Hindu nation is not based on any ideology or ‘ism’. It is a continuously evolving, dynamic and progressive way of life in complete consonance with nature,” observed RSS Sarkaryavah Shri Mohan Bhagwat while addressing a gathering of intellectuals from Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, J&K, Delhi and Chandigarh. Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Prof. PK Dhumal presided over the function.

Delivering the 18th Panchnad Lectures organised by Chandigarh-based Panchnad Research Institute on “Hindu Nationhood—A Contemporary Perspective”, he pointed out that while the West looks at every relationship as a contract and talks of world as a global market, the Hindu sages—the ancient rishis and munis—talked of the world as a global family—vasudhaivakutumbakam. Explaining the concept of Hindu nation, he said unlike other nations the Hindu nation was not created around a language, territory, religion or ethnicity but evolved on the basis of concepts that emerged from civilisational experiences of centuries and millennia by ancient Indian sages. Bharat, he said, is destined to deliver to the world the recipe for a harmonious and nature-friendly way of living. India’s identity lies in the eternal balance between various forces and only this kind of identity could bring honour and dignity to its inhabitants. This is an ideal way of living for the human beings.

The Sarkaryavah observed that instead of calling it Hinduism it would be better to use the term Hinduness or Hindutva because it is neither an ‘ism’ nor a theory or hypothesis. Theories and hypotheses were not the ultimate truth but were propositions that needed to be proved, whereas Hindutva was the ultimate truth which evolved as a way of life that had to be experienced rather than debated upon. Hindu nation was not a political concept and must be understood as an ever-evolving reality of the relationship between past, present and the future for a way of life that reflects the perfect coordination between various components of the Mother Nature. It was a matter of practice, not something to be preached.

Neither spiritualism nor scientific developments alone could bring peace and harmony to humanity. A balanced combination of both was essential. “Conceptualising in the framework of ‘isms’ and theories puts full stops on the intellectual thinking process and the explanations do not attain the status of eternal truth,” Shri Bhagwat said.

THere is a concerted effort by the RIght Wing fanatics to prove that Hindu religion is superior to all other religions. They also build fake webistes in other people names, like Rick Briggs - claiming him to be from NASA and discovering that Sanskrit is the best language for computers! There is and never was any Rick Briggs paper on this , you can write to NASA or got the website and find. This hate of others and blowing their own trumpet comes from RSS, an organisation which came into being in 1932!! 15 years before independence.
For the real history of the RSS pls visit http://rightwingtumblings.blogspot.com

I visited this sight http://rightwingtumblings.blogspot.com. I don not know who runs this. Whoever it is must be a Sex maniac. I think His life begins and ends with sex. Given a chance he would think of one with his mother also. He is not to be blamed because the religion that he is following is also founded by simillar sex maniac - Mohammed who upon seeing his own daughter-in-law pounced on her, snatched her from his son and regularly raped her ( I call it rape because the consent of that helpless women was not saught.) A person who at the age of 60 upon seeing beautiful girl of 7 years ( His grand daughter age ) marries her for 22nd time. If he becomes the prophet of the religion what more can you expect from his followers.

I agree with what is said. This persons mind is filled with sex and has lost capacity to think anything beyond sex. Dear friend there are many things in the world beyond oral, anal,lesbian and homosexual matters. Having big organ is not evverything. Even ass has bigger and stronger penis than human beings, but it remains an ass. Do not be proud of this. I think this is the problem not with you but the religion that you are following which has no substance to teach beyond sex, as your founder was also a lusty old man. If you want to understand life beyond sex then change your religion, accept the one which teaches life beyond sex.
