THE VALUE OF HINDU CULTURE FOR THE WORLD
They are also suffering from a misunderstanding of the beauty and importance of their culture, though it must be admitted that much of Hindu culture today is in decay. This, however, should not be a pretext for abandoning it in favor of a spiritually interior culture, but for reviving it. Once we understand the importance of culture in the spiritual life, we begin to appreciate what Hinduism has been all about. The spiritual path is Rama but a spiritual culture is Sita. Rama must win and save Sita or he cannot fulfill his destiny. 

Hindus need to awaken to the importance of their spiritual tradition including not only is great formless teaching like Vedanta, but its beauty of spiritual culture, particularly its culture of devotion (bhakti), which is one of the most sublime and exalted cultures the world has ever produced. They need to recognize the importance of their spiritual culture for all humanity, which is spiritually starved and generally deprived of any deeper cultural nourishment.
