The third phase is occurring today as part of one of the most important spiritual movements of modern times, the expansion of Eastern meditational teachings throughout the world. It also shows a combination of Hinduism and Buddhism, as well as aspects of Taoism or all the main Himalayan spiritual traditions. This phase began with the dissemination of Hindu teachings to the West through the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

Vedantic influences reached many Western thinkers including Goethe, Schopenhauer, Emerson, and Thoreau through various translations of the Upanishads and Bhagavad Gita. This phase started in earnest with Vivekananda's trip to the West in 1893. There are now various Yoga, Vedantic, Vedic, Tantric and Buddhist centers in most countries and most major cities of the world.

 Along with it has been a modern migration of Hindus to different countries with significant Hindu populations in Canada, USA, the Caribbean, South America, Africa, and Europe. This movement is likely to last for many centuries to come. It will help create a global spiritual tradition, though this may take decades or centuries to accomplish.
