An Intellectual Kshatriya

When I was speaking in England on a tour for the VHP, needing to produce new talks on an almost daily basis, the idea of an intellectual kshatriya came to me.  The Kshatriyas were the traditional warrior class whose role was to defend Hindu society. In the modern age of the computer  revolution and the information war I suggested that an intellectual Kshatriya was the need of the times. Hinduism has always been a religion of ideas and in this new age of information it can use the strength of its insights to overcome the inimical forces that have challenged it on a more outward level.

Sitaram Goel got wind of the idea and asked me to develop it further. It eventually became the core of my book Awaken Bharata. This idea of an intellectual kshatriya has become a theme for my writings on Hinduism. Such a new class is essential to protect Hindu society and its heritage and also to make it  accessible for the rest of the world. Without these kshatriyas Hinduism will remain under siege and even its great spiritual heritage will become eroded and lost. This idea of an intellectual kshatriya has remained a theme of my work. The Vedas say that speech (vak) is the weapon of the Brahmin. Such intellectual Kshatriyas are also Brahmana- Kshatriyas.
