THE VALUE OF HINDU CULTURE FOR THE WORLD
Some cultures, particularly India, have created an environment that has better allowed for great spiritual personages to arise. There has been an ongoing stream of great spiritual figures in India since the ancient Vedic sages to modern times. Even the modern teacher who has gone furthest to negate cultural and religious identities as relevant to the spiritual life, J. Krishnamurti, not surprisingly came from the Brahmin culture of India.

Other cultures, particularly those of the European and the Islamic world, have rarely produced comparable spiritual figures and have not given them much value, when they have arisen within their ranks. They still trumpet their one son of God or one prophet as if only one great religious figure were possible, which becomes the sad epitaph on the spirituality of their culture. Emphasizing only one such figure prevents others from developing or from being recognized should they arise. The concept of a person of spiritual realization a human being who has realized the Divine or Truth  in his or her own consciousness and has thereby transcended all time and space is not formally recognized by their cultures at all; in fact it is regarded as heresy or delusion.
