PREFACE

I have also dealt with the historical issues of Hindus in GODS, SAGES AND KINGS: VEDIC SECRETS OF ANCIENT CIVILIZATION. Another book, published in India only, ARISE ARJUNA, HINDUISM AND THE MODERN WORLD provides a Hindu perspective on different religions and the current social issues facing Hinduism in this materialistic age. The present volume is a series of reflections, as well as questions and answers, on Sanatana Dharma, the universal tradition behind Hinduism and the yogic spirituality that derives from it. 

It is not about Hinduism as a religious belief as opposed to others (which exists more in the minds of non-Hindus than in the minds of those we would consider themselves to be Hindus). Yet it does recognize the value and importance of the Hindu tradition and its special corpus of knowledge. It is meant to present Hinduism in its true light, which is a spiritual art and science designed to connect us to our original nature as Pure Consciousness. I am writing this book as one who is Hindu in religion, though not by birth. 

I am not afraid of identifying myself with this tradition. I understand Hinduism as a universal approach, but I also understand the structure of Hinduism with its complete spiritual science and culture. I view Hinduism as a integral formulation of the universal tradition developed through thousands of years of experience by various yogis and sages, not merely just an idea or speculation about it. This universalism of Hinduism is not a universalism of merely accepting all things as they appear but one that has given the appropriate place for each aspect of life and every type of spiritual practice.
