THE HINDU RENAISSANCE AT A TURNING POINT
In some instances it has aided missionary efforts to convert Hindus, because it allows missionaries to cite the praise of modern Hindu teachers for their religions and the lack of respect the same teachers have given to Hinduism, which they have often not bothered to identify themselves with. One could argue that such a strategy might have been appropriate if Hinduism itself had already been revitalized.

However, to stress some vague new universal religion that includes Hinduism is far too weak an argument to awaken people to the importance of their tradition that has already been denigrated for a thousand years. It has not proved able to awaken Hindu Dharma or to arouse the slumbering soul of India. Such so-called universalist movements have not been able to revive Hindu Dharma as a whole, with its wealth of religious and cultural traditions, or create a new Hindu social or political model.

Their mistake is to overemphasize universality and forget the need to be practical in one's own local environment. That all mothers are good does not mean that one should neglect the welfare of one's own mother. Yet such was precisely the result of this effort to accommodate all religions before reviving one's own, that was in fact being trampled down by the very religions Hindus were trying to respect.
