second stage calls for a revival of the teaching in all aspects. For
this Vedic schools of all types are required, particularly broad
based, not personality centered institutions, in which such subjects
as Yoga, Ayurveda, Sanskrit, Vedanta, Vedic sciences, history from a
Vedic perspective, and the Vedas themselves can be learned
together. Such centers must focus on Vedic and Sanskritic learning.
They need not try to teach all religions or be a forum for all
spiritual paths, though they can have their explorations in these
They must first aim at recovering both the depth
and the breadth of the Vedic tradition. They must learn this
tradition and its proven teachings and practices first, before
seeking to modify these according to other influences.
Hindus must reclaim their complete
Dharma, which is not only a Sannyasa Dharma or way of renunciation,
but also a Kshatriya Dharma or political Dharma, and a Vaishya
Dharma or Hindu economics. The whole integral system must be brought
out and articulated. The emphasis must be on reviving and
reformulating the universal tradition behind Hinduism, not merely
extolling a particular sect, great guru or powerful yogic technique,
however significant these may be.
These new schools should take up the
spiritual insights of Veda, Vedanta, Yoga and Tantra, bringing out
their connections in detail and relating them to modern life. They
must create new types of Dharma Sutras for establishing a new
Dharmic social order. Vedic teachings must not be taught merely
mechanically as custom or tradition. They must come alive, not only
as the great truths of the past, but as the insights that will lead
us to the future and beyond time altogether.
