THE HINDU RENAISSANCE AT A TURNING POINT
Fortunately the strong Hindu revivalist roots in the Ramakrishna movement continue and predominate in various of its centers. This has prevented it from completely breaking off from its roots. There is the likelihood that the movement as a whole will return to these, if it really looks back to its original inspiration, which is clearly to revive Sanatana Dharma and Hindu Dharma in a global context, not to create a new religion.

Various other Hindu-based movements moved in similar directions. Turn the main guru into a unique figure and founder of a new universal teaching that is not Hindu but embraces all religions. Downplay, ignore or deny the teacher's Hindu background, while welcoming or praising other religious groups. If you speak of Krishna and the Gita, mention also Christ and the Bible, and Mohammed and the Koran, as if these were all interchangeable.

Turn Hinduism into just another religion that is included in the broader vision of the teacher, who could have been born anywhere. Even if the guru did not take such a stance, which was not always the case starting with the Ramakrishna and Vivekananda, later disciples sometimes did this in their attempts to expand their flocks. **** Now I am not suggesting that Hindus should be more sectarianly Hindu, taking a narrow view of their tradition.
