THE VALUE OF HINDU CULTURE FOR THE WORLD
For this Hindus must uphold the value of Hindu culture in their own lives and in India itself. This is not to encourage a mere superficial Hindu pride or Hindu cultural elitism. It is to stop the process of devaluing this great culture, which alone of the world's cultures appears to really support the complete unfoldment of the spirit or inner Self.

While spiritually advanced individuals may have little need for any culture or outward forms, the world as a whole needs a broad creative and spiritual culture to nourish the diversity of human temperaments. It is not enough to teach people the value of meditation and otherwise educate them along scientific, intellectual or technological lines, or place them back in their own religious and cultural backgrounds which are inimical to the spiritual quest. This is not transcendence of culture. It is an acquiescence to non-spiritual or materialistic cultural values which prevent the spiritual life from truly flowering.
