must awaken and reject Asuric beliefs and values, whether in their
own society or coming from other religious groups. For Hindus to
accept Asuric religious beliefs or practices as true and valid,
whether in their tradition or outside of it, is to deny the Dharma.
For Hindus to excuse the Asuric actions of others, like tolerating
the violence and exclusivism of Western religions, is simply naive.
Hindus must learn to throw off this Asuric or false Kshatriya energy
for one that is wholesome and sattvic. Hindus therefore need a new
spiritual Kshatriya to overcome these Asuric forces.
All over the world the Asuric force is predominant. We live in an
age of power, propaganda, and commercialism, which all have an
Asuric appeal. To counter this the Devic force must arouse itself
and take humanity in a new direction. If Devic traditions cannot
arise and challenge this Asuric dominance, then its negative energy
and destructive consequences are bound to increase.
The importance of India is that it is a country where the Deva
Shakti has been the most active historically. India itself is the
land of Durga, the Divine Mother who herself is the manifestation of
the Deva Shakti, and who has the real power to conquer the Asuras.
If this Shakti cannot awaken again in India, it does not bode well
for the rest of humanity either.
May that Durga force arise again!
