A CALL FOR AN INTELLECTUAL (BAUDDHIKA) KSHATRIYA

Hence there is no reason why the media realm should be beyond their capacity. Certainly Hindus have succeeded in articulating the views of their particular religious groups. There are great Vedantic thinkers, great Vaishnava thinkers and great yogis active today. Almost every great Hindu guru has his intellectual exponents. But when it comes to the field of the religion and spiritual tradition as a whole, particularly its social and political concerns, we find little thought or regard.

A Hindu thinker can write a great book on Yoga or Vedanta, but will write only a short article on Hinduism, generally stating how broad and tolerant the religion is, making sure not to offend any other religious beliefs in the process.

Hinduism has produced many extraordinary minds in modern times. Excellent Hindu critiques of the West and of the modern world can be found in the writings of great Hindu gurus like Aurobindo, Vivekananda, Shivananda or Chinmayananda. The problem is that their works get placed in the religious or spiritual field and do not enter into the intellectual realm. Their teachings are often confined to their disciples, who personalize them rather than promote them for their global relevance. Much of the work of creating a new Hindu intelligentsia should consist of taking the works of these great gurus and reformulating them for a broader and more intellectual audience.
