HINDU DHARMA AND THE CLASH OF CULTURES
Unless Hindus as a whole are prepared for this they are bound to create more difficulties for themselves. If they are prepared they can become a great force in positive change in humanity.

In this regard the greatest enemies of a modern Hindu revival are neither the West nor Islam but passivity and disunity among Hindus themselves. 

Hindus still emphasize their own local and sectarian differences over any unitary culture. They are like a family fighting among itself that is unable to meet external challenges, even if these are not difficult to overcome if they stand together.

Hindus have what is probably the most developed culture in the world in terms of spirituality, religion, art, philosophy and language. If they promote and share their culture it will not simply survive the clash of cultures but become a positive force for the elevation of true culture, now in decline, all over the world. 

Hindu Dharma does not require that any one culture triumphs over all the others. It rather seeks an integration of all that is good in human culture according to the spiritual urge that is our deepest soul and humanity. This is the importance of Hindu Dharma in the clash of cultures. But unless Hindus take up the challenge even an inferior culture will easily defeat them.

In any case the clash of cultures cannot be avoided. It is like a new churning of the cosmic ocean. Unless the Gods take their part in this drama the real creation and all of its secret wonders cannot come forth.
