EAST AND WEST, WHERE IS THE BOUNDARY?
If we are mean that as rational people we need a rational system of spirituality, that would align us with the so-called Eastern religions, as well as the mysticism of the ancient Greeks and Romans. If we are saying that as rational people all religion should be rejected as irrational, we should recognize that Eastern religions like Hinduism and Buddhism are not irrational or emotional belief systems, but ways of clearing the mind of preconception and prejudice for the direct perception of Truth. 

Other people say that since Western culture is individualistic Westerners should not follow Eastern culture because it is traditional and authoritarian and denies the freedom that is the real spirit of Western culture. However Hindu though is the most individualistic in the world. It teaches that the individual, that you  yourself are God or the Divine power behind the universe. It does not subordinate the conscious individual to any authority or belief but emphasizes that we must be true to our own deepest nature, that the highest truth is to be who we really are apart from all external conditioning influences.
