Another mistake Hindus have made is
being too accommodating under the guise of synthesis, which erodes
clear thinking. Under the guise that all religions are one Hindus
hesitate to develop a proper criticism, however justified, of the
exclusivist creeds working to convert them, and of other adharmic
actions done in the name of religion in the world. There is also the
danger that in trying to attract minorities into their fold Hindu
groups in India will seek to appease minorities rather than to help
them in a Dharmic way.
true Kshatriya will help and lead, giving a positive direction for
others to follow, not merely flatter and accommodate in order to
gain popularity. A true Kshatriya is devoted to Dharma and cannot be
won over by name, fame, influence or money. He is not seeking
office, to create a vote bank, or to gain followers, but to uphold
Dharma without compromise or inflexibility.
The youth in particular must be awakened to this call for an
intellectual Kshatriya. They have the idealism and the vision of the
future, as well as the vitality, but this needs to be directed not
only by a spiritual urge but one that addresses the problems of
society. To be truly relevant, particularly to the youth, this
intellectual voice must address not only the social issues of today
but environmental problems, the role of science, and the future
evolution of humanity.
