THE DANGER OF HINDUS SPEAKING IN THE NAME OF OTHER RELIGIONS
Coming from a synthetic and open religious tradition Hindus like to include other religions within the scope of their own, as if other religions, even those trying desperately to convert them, should be like Hinduism. Modern Hindus like to say that they are also Christians or Muslims, that they believe in the Bible and Koran, or that they respect Jesus or Mohammed as avatars and great Yogis.

Modern Hindus have reinterpreted other religions in a Hindu light, claiming that Christ went to India, that the Bible teaches the law of karma, that yogic practices can be found in the Koran, and so on. Hinduism itself may not be specifically the ground of such synthetic equations but Yoga or Vedanta or a particular Hindu based teacher. Some Yoga teachers say that Yoga is not merely Hindu but also Christian and Islamic and that any mystic of any background is also a yogi.

Some Vedantins say that Vedanta is the essence of all religions and look for Christian Vedanta or Islamic Vedanta, even speaking of Hindu Vedanta as if Vedanta was not Hindu but some broader teaching. Such groups may do chants and prayers using the names of God and saints from various religions. They may celebrate the holy days of all religions as well.
