THE VALUE OF HINDU CULTURE FOR THE WORLD
The Indic traditions recognize that Truth can be found through many different sages, and must ultimately be realized by each individual in his or her own right, while these exclusivist approaches recognize only one great being who existed at one time, and require that all other people look to that one person and his authoritative revelation for establishing their relation-ship with God. Such a negative attitude about the human capacity for spiritual knowledge must have an effect in stultifying the spiritual potential of the culture itself. 

Even the Buddhist cultures of the East, though they have the concept of an enlightened sage, have not produced the great stream of sages that has come out of India, though they have produced a number of such remarkable figures. This is perhaps because their cultures as a whole are less spiritually oriented and more practically minded than the Hindu. Therefore we must conclude that culture can be important and that the culture of India, even with its many inadequacies, has given the world a better basis for the spiritual life than those of other countries.
