THE HINDU RENAISSANCE AT A TURNING POINT
The Second Stage: The Need for New Vedic Schools

The result of this scaling down of the Hindu renaissance is that after more than a century of this movement there is no real Vedic or Vedantic university in India. There is no pervasive Vedic or Vedantic movement throughout the country. While certain Hindu gurus and sects may have a good following, there is not a corresponding support for the greater tradition or sufficient efforts to bring all Hindu groups together.

In the fifty years of independent India an anti-Hindu trend has arisen out of the very universalism that came from the Hindu renaissance. The original Hindu universalism, a universalism of truth, has been replaced by this vague universalism of political and social convenience and appeasement. This vague universalism seems to exclude Hindus and certainly is suspicious of any Hindu revival, which it would regard as communal. By its view Hindus should not have an identity in order not to discourage members of other religions from thinking that they cannot be Indians!

Even the Sanskrit language, which holds the wealth of the culture of India, cannot gain government support in India because of the idea that other groups might be offended by its dominant Hindu teachings. To counter this distortion there must be a revival of the Hindu renaissance and a bringing it to a new level. The Hindu renaissance needs to spread out and restore the entire field of Hindu Dharma, not just yogic spirituality. It needs to be universal without denying its particular relevance or unique importance for humanity.
